Not watched the races yet, but having watched practise / quali over the weekend have been pretty aware of the bad weather and other causes of delays to the planned programme. Which is why I always record the following programme or two to capture any overrrun. TBH I am surprised you were not already recording the Chequered Flag programme which would have been enough to capture the rest of the race? If things go to plan the races should be availabe online tomorrow sometime.
Accurate Recording is still in its infancy and not yet used by many broadcasters, a fact so many viewers seem to forget.
It has been my SOP for years going back to first getting a VCR to pad recordings of live sport by an hour or two. No padding on a Youview box as it relies on Accurate Recording ignoring the fact that not all broadcasters use it (including BT) and that it is subject to human and technical failure so the workaround is to record the following programm(es),
Yes there was a 1/2 hour delay to the start of the motogp race at the last minute when some water fell off the roof of a bridge onto the track...In theory the AR should then change the finish time but sounds like it didn't work (like a lot of times)....
Thanks for all the replies.
Anyone any ideas why BT Vision can't split the 3 races into separate programmes? it would make it so much easier if you only want to see the last one.
If they did then they would have even more problems with each programme segment containing all of the race or other session it is supposed as was shown last weekend there were multiple delays including a mysterious non-presence of marshals and a dog on track as well as the leaky bridge.
Curiously my Chequered Flag recording not only included the end of the MotoGP race but was extended by an extra 44 minutes to end at the end of that programme. I suspect that was *not* Accurate Recording in action but a late change to the EPG info once the live coverage had ended so it seems the Youview box is clever enough to detect and act on that change for an already active recording.
