BBC HD Rant
I don't know if anyone else has had the same problem as me but the BBC timings on the HD channel seem to be all over the place. I am using a SKY+ HD box and have set it manually to add 3 minutes at the beginning and end of every recording. For every other channel out there this seems to cope quite well with the slight changes in timings that may happen in a programme without having to fast forward forever to reach the right spot or waste HDD space but it looks like for the BBC I may well have to add 5 minutes!
I first noticed the problem a month or so ago when I had series linked 'Harpers Island' and noticed that ocassionally the last minute or so of the show had been missed off. I put it down to the fact that it was because they put two episodes back to back and this is what had caused the problem with the timings but today it missed off the last minute of Doctor Who! I put it down to these flashy HD 'idents' and trailers for other HD offerings, if it continually happened on Freeview BBC channels there would be uproar!
I am now going to have to wait till it appears on the iplayer and fast forward right to the end - needless to say, I am not a happy camper and am seriously wondering if I should 'cc' this rant to Points of View!
Anyway, now that's off my chest better go and check it isn't going to do the same to Top Gear!
