I've looked at the topic titles back to the last week of August and can't see this problem having been talked about.
When I set up a scheduled recording of a programme on the HD version of an IP channel, the SD channel version is recorded. I've seen this on the two Eurosport channels, and have set up some test recordings to see if this happens on other IP delivered SD/HD channel pairs. I'll update this thread during 27/10 to report whether it affects other IP HD channels or just Eurosport.
My tests so far suggest that this happens if the box powers up from standby to action the scheduled recording, but does not happen if the box is already powered when the scheduled event kicks in.
21.50.50 (updated 13th Oct).
SD channels hidden when there is an HD variant.
Box is in high-eco mode.
No other activity on the BT TV box at the time of recording.
Low broadband activity at the time of recording.
I don't record much on the BT box, but I know this has been happening for at least a couple of months (at that time I thought I'd scheduled the wrong channel or it was a Eurosport TX issue) so it's not related to the current software version.
Do you have any examples of Eurosport programs from the last 7 days that have recorded on the wrong (SD) channel ?
I have one example at this time:
Eurosport, Sunday 25th, 11:30am -> 12:45pm, Alpine Skiing World Cup.
I have already deleted the other recent example that I had and can't remember what it was. I've set up two test recordings for this afternoon, one on Eurosport HD and the other on Eurosport 2 HD and spaced them far enough apart that the box will be fully powered down between the two.
My three test recordings from overnight on Discovery HD, Animal Planet HD and BT Sport 1 HD all worked OK.
Thank for the example - this is an issue with Eurosport channels on Youview .
Personally I believe it is due to the EPGs and metadata for the Eurosport SD and HD channels being out of synch.
If you look at your Youview EPG
on mine - the EPG currently shows
Eurosport, Sunday 25th, 11:30am -> 12:45pm, Live Alpine Skiing World Cup.
Eurosport HD , Sunday 25th, 11:15am -> 12:45pm, Live Alpine Skiing World Cup.
Of course we don't know what the EPG schedules said on Sunday morning.
Do you recall when you set the program up whether it was schefuled to start at 11:15 or 11:30 ?
Consider this scenario (it may or may not apply to your experience) .
You schedule a recording on an HD channel according to the EPG - the broadcaster decides at short notice that it will delay that programme so the programme isn't available to record at the scheduled time. The broadcaster updaters the metadata for its SD channel with the new (later) start time but doesn't for it's HD channel. At the scheduled HD channel start time the progeam is not broadcast so It is a failed recording. Intelligent Youview will look to schedule the failed programme when it is next found in the EPG guide which as the EPG has been updated for the SD channel it finds and sets up the recording. It successfully records the program on that SD channel.
I follow your logic, Zulu. Unfortunately I didn't take any notice of what the details of the schedule were at the time I set the sheduled recording.
The bigger problem at the moment is that it looks as if when I brought the boxout of standby this evening it has died completely, so I can't check my recordings from earlier today. I'll know more once I get the box out, fuse checked, etc, which I'll need to do in daylight so that I can disentagle the leads.
The BT TV YouView box is, to all intents and purposes, dead. There's power to it as the Ethernet port LEDs light up when the switch is on, but it makes no attemt to boot and there's no activity on the front panel.
I was thinking of cancelling TV anyway, so it looks like my decision has been made for me.
@Gitfinger I'm sorry about the problems you've had with your BT TV service. If you have'nt cancelled yet and would like us to help please use the 'contact the mods' link in my forum profile to send in your details.
