      Manual Recordings.

      Does anyone use manual recordings?

      Sometimes it appears that there is no other option, like when recording radio programmes.
      Pressing the record button brings up the manual recording dialogue screen. While not as convenient as being able to record directly from the EPG it isn't too difficult except when listening to a programme that has already started.

      On a number of occasions I have been called away from an interesting programme and just wanted to record the remainder of the show for later listening. Unless I input a start time one or two minutes in the future there is always the danger that the recording will refuse to save while a warning is issued stating that the start time is in the past.

      A "now" option would be useful for the start time in the same way that "today" can be used for the date.
      Failing that the warning for a time in the recent past should not prevent the settings from being saved and allow recording to start immediately.

      If anyone else knows a better way of recording in these circumstances then please enlighten me.

      Hello seawright,

      I've raised this with the developers. Hopefully we'll get some kind of statement or at least they will take a serious look at this for a future release.
