      Setting the time on the box(missing program starts/ends)

      Hello there can anyone help me.....

      When i am recording something on the box the on screen time doesnt always match up to when the program starts. sometimes it gets it right, others it starts the recording halfway through the intro and others about 1 or 2 minutes into the program itself so i miss the beginning. and even worse...when i am getting the cliffhanger at the end it suddenly cuts off the recording

      Is there anything else that can be done other than trying the settings menu for adding to program start/end ??

      Thanks in advance

      On the Sky remote, press Services>Options>Sky+Setup for adding extra minutes at the beginning and end of the recordings, or set to 'Automatic'. Remember to press green to save changes to the settings.

      You can also set up your own manual recordings. Press Services>Options>Man Rec.

      Tried setting it on the settings page, it was already set to auto, its just that the programs seem to be out of sync with the time shown on the screen. recorded one last night and the time it said it started against the time at the top of the screen was 4 minutes out !!!
