I record the F1 GP on two boxes, the Virgin Tivo and the FreeSat

In both cases FP1 stopped about 2 minutes in.

On the Tivo it looked as though there should be about 1 hour 45
minutes but it wouldn't skip past the first couple of minutes.

Has anyone else encountered this or am I the only one watching F1?

Oh, FP2 was recorded O.K.

Just realised that we had a power blip that morning.
I didn't initially consider it because I thought it was well before
FP1 but it seems a logical explanation.

Surprised it didn't pick up and record the rest when the power came
back on, though.

I have a UPS before the recorder for just this reason. It can't run the
antenna amp, but it keeps the PVR happy for when the power is restored.
