Strangely, no. I set up BBC News at 6 to record yesterday evening.
Twenty minutes before it started, I watched the end of the program
before it, and then watched through to the end of the News. When
I exited out and looked in my recordings list the BBC News was
still there and still recording (continuing for the 5min guard time).
Having said that, it isn't there today, and I can't remember deleting
it. I'll try again today.

One thing that might make a difference. I have all my recordings
set up with a 2min guard time before, so a live program at 18:00
will record at 17:50 and hence have different names. Might that
be why it works for me?
