hi all, this is a strange one i have noticed a couple of times when i have set recordings even tho the red R is in the EPG the programme hasnt recorded,i did one for mrs last night as she was out and the red light was on the front of box and also the flashing recording icon but it never recorded. a couple of days earlier i recorded 3 things and they all worked . last week same thing recorded a programme and everything there but didnt record. so any ideas anyone.
my box is a VU+DUO2 with ATV6.3 and grogbuild.
ps. there is plenty of room left on the HD

Ok i read first post again,red light showed recording something,i would suggest to look through your recordings again to see another entry same time and possibly a different name as maybe program had changed.

are the two recordings at the same time, or overlap at start/end and are you watching another channel when they record?

so it could be, if the second one started recording before the first one finished, if there was no spare tuner the 2nd wouldn't record. (Sorry not sure off hand how many tuners you have), if you wasn't watching something else then it may have recorded as two tuners are available.

right something weird happened,as i said i tried bbc1hd and sd at 2 different times none of then recorded, so a couple of hours later i looked in directory again and the sd recording was now there, also the programme from friday was in the trash but wasnt earlier and how did it get in trash.

Your house is haunted and the ghost deleted it to go into the trash :fearscream:
I would assume you know what tuner you are recording on,remember a combo box you can view on sat and record on cable,or record sat and view cable.
When i setup recordings on vix while on that channel i press red button to give me my epg ,find program and green and green again timer set.
Timer list should also state what your recording sat or cable.
If a recording is on sat or cable on a set transponder others on same tp are viewable.
Eg, i could set 3 recordings at the same time on the same tp on 1 tuner and another 3 on another tp on the second tuner=vu solo2
