I'm having issues with my recordings

Is the memory on the main TV box less than 5%?

The main TV box’s recording capacity might be full and some older recordings may need to be deleted in order to make space for new ones.

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

It sounds simple but it can genuinely fix some issues - If the main TV Box has not had a reset or a power-down in some time it can have an effect on some features, including ensuring your recordings are working correctly.

Has the programme that did not record been correctly set up for series record?

Check your scheduled viewing list and ensure the TV show you wanted to record is listed or if the TV show is currently on, it should have this recording symbol on it for season record

If you are still having issues recording TV shows after these checks, please contact us on our Support page.
