Apologies if this is in the wrong place - and if it has been asked before (and if it is a dumb question!). If I buy the Humax DTR-T1010 YouView Smart 1TB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder am I able to record a programme from BBC iplayer to hard drive. Many thanks.

I wouldn't say that there isn't some kind of geeky way to achieve it, but everything possible has been done to prevent it.

Sorry - a supplementary question..........if I missed a programme today the 7 day scroll back should be the answer presumably, i.e. I can watch it and copy to the hard drive on the unit?

You can certainly watch it. Just go back to the point in the EPG where it was situated and press OK. If it is available on the appropriate catch-up service, it will have a 'play' icon (triangle facing right) next to it. Copying it to the hard drive is another matter. As far as I know, you can't do that.

Which is a rather pointless restriction?

you could have recorded the original live broadcast to your HDD, so what's wrong with you recording a catch up service to your HDD?

Fair point, but as far as I know you can't. I may be wrong, of course. I'll give it a try a little later to see if I can (bit busy at the moment, though).

From http://www.youview.com/support/kb/wh...rogramme-guide


Why can't I record a programme from the backwards programme guide?

It's not possible to record Catch Up programmes. You can only record current or future listed programmes. It's also worth bearing in mind that if you start recording after a programmeís started, youíll only record it from that point on.

If the programme is available On Demand, you can select and watch it from the backwards programme guide. But youíll only be able to record it if itís broadcast again in the future.


Longish discussion on the topic here

i think it could come later on as iplayed offer downloads via ipad etc... do all possible - a added 'iplayer' section in the 'my view' area.

I find its quicker to use the search function - ie for top gear, just press search - type t-o-p and top gear is highlighted - much quicker.

go back is handy if youve been told of a good programme, but dont know the exact name (ie 'it was on ch4 9 or 10pm last tuesday' said your friend, dave).

Overall its a top choice, only neg is theres no ability to export recordings and start up time is slow in high eco (power save on)

Thanks to everyone for their contributions. I think I won't end up by the Humax You View unit in view of this.

Yes, it was pathetic wasn't it - I will take that one on the chins! I am told that my area is not great for broadband speeds but still went with the YouView because the hard drive capacity was the same as the one I was going to buy. Well, that was my logic!

Can't immediately see how the £199 one differs from my one, but I can live with paying the extra £50.

I think the answer is no. The box seems to access BBC Iplayer for Catchup and Ondemand. When it does so you are only allowed to play the programme, not record it. Possibly to force you to watch the additional material that comes with the programme. Someone may know a workaround.
