Last night I set CSI:NY to stop recording on channel Five USA at exactly 
1am (which is when the channel goes off air), but it still had the 
problem of being seemingly blank when played back in Myth. I guess there 
might be a few seconds difference between my HTPC clock and when the 
channel actually closes, so next I'll try stopping it a minute before 

Other than John Pilkington, has anyone else seen this?

Can any other UK DVB-TV viewers try recording the last program on a 
channel, e.g. Jinx on CBBC Channel at 6.35pm to 7pm, or Cinemania on 
Five USA tonight at 12.35am to 1am, especially if you add a couple of 
minutes extra to the end time, and let the list know if you can play it 
back or not?
