Thanks - I'll give that a go.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you're proposing here. Could you
please elaborate? One suggestion I have on this would be to combine
the 2 programs into a single recording and provide some functionality
to allow them to be cut into 2 later on when watching it. That may all
be a bit hard, though. It's a difficult one, this one, because you end
up having to watch the end of one program by finding and viewing the
start of the next one that followed it. On a VCR that doesn't matter
because everything's recorded serially on tape. In the PVR world this
becomes more of a problem.
