I’m having some problems when I record from SKY. The first channel is SkySports 3 and is the WWE wrestling (for my son!). Sometimes the recording begins OK - but then plays a black screen with sound only. This seems to have hapened immediately after an advert. I also recorded from SKY BoxOffice last night (Wrestlemania) and exactly the same problem - black screen with sound only. I tried recording the same programme this evening and it worked OK - picture and sound. I wondered if theres anything that I have to setup or be aware of - for example some sort of signal being picked up to prevent recording from the start of a programme. Or is there coding on some transmissions to stop recording onto DVD??
Media used is Panasonic DVD-RAM and also DVD-R.
Advice appreciated - cheers.
