    I notice that you have two different TV cards, does this same problem occur on both the DVB-T channels and the Analogue channels?

    sorry, I should have stated. The problems I get only occur for DVB-T, the ATI550 card is fine - can be left all night recording without any problems (well, except when a daylight saving change is due...)

    I'm not sure if both DVB-T channels are affected - I would assume so, but I can check that by reassiging a channel on the DVB-T if you like?
