Whilst I don't use the record function often, the times I have used it (to record MotoGP races) then it's patently obvious that the start and end of the programme are missing. Therefore the box is NOT recording the entire programme, even as listed in the EPG. Fortunately it hasn't (yet) impacted the recording of the race itself.
