Re: Fail to record FED UP

I have been dealing with the chat line and tv box staff who sent an engineer yesterday to sort our Fail to record complaint.....he reset the box!!!!!!!!! Which we had already done!!!!! And guess what it failed to record on BTsport HD again , I have been on the Charline again for nearly an hour with no success apart from keeping me waiting for unacceptable lengths of time only to be told we will send another engineer!!!!!! I am furious with BT they are not supplying me with a service to which I pay

Re: Fail to record FED UP

There are various reasons why it would fail to record the internet channels.

First question is how is the box connected to your router?

Secondly , are you able to watch the internet channels live without issue?

Thirdly, is it an issue with both SD & HD programs or just HD?

Reasons for failure could include:-

. Network card issues with the box.

. Poor ethernet cabling.

.Poor connectivity with powerline adapters , if you're using them.

. Unstable internet connection or low connection speeds. Some router stats would give an indication of this.

  The fact that the chat broke off might have been caused by  a flaky connection.

I think any break in connection could result in the box registering it as a failure to record.

Re: Fail to record FED UP

Thanks for your reply. it is mainly the sportsHD channel and Motogp that tends not to record, i have looked on loads of forums now...including the MotoGP forum and loads of people have the same to will stop half way through a race or fail to record all together...all our other HD sites tend to record with no problem. If there is a recognised fault i just wish someone would hold their hands up and say so...if they are working on it then thay should say.

it just irritates me that we are paying for something that we are not getting...motogp for us is thereason we went for Bt again....
