      Long Recording Length

      I have a Samsung Sky+ HD box which since the latest EPG update is sometimes recording programmes until the hard drive fills up. I have seen this several times now where a half hour programme will record up to 45 to 48 hours until the disk is full (I don't think these numbers in themselves are important, just roughly the amount of free space in hours).

      Is anyone else getting this or even heard of it?

      I haven't contacted Sky yet.

      Cheers

      Yes the problem is known about and it is hoped that a software update expected to occur mid January will correct the problem. In the meantime, as a temporary measure, power cycle the box on a weekly basis.
