I have a Bush TV with Logik recording box. I record programmes check they are recording and then find when I want to watch that its not there. Any ideas please?

No it does work some programms record. For instance Call the Midwife on BBC1 will not record. When I select series it sometimes works and not others.
Can you please remove the power to the recorder (so unplug it from the power socket).
Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the recorder, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.
Let me know the results please

Done that. Have set a recording from 11.40am and says its recording. At 12 I will see if its worked.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
That should have said started at 11.30.
Thank you, ***** ***** know then please

That appears to have worked OK (channel 4) now trying BBC1 at 12.15. Will let you know how that goes. Just as a matter of interest if I record a series then delete the one Ive watched would that make any difference to the rest of the series?
No, as the scheduling is separate to the actual recording, as long as you do not delete the actual recording schedule.
