Looking at 
Film4 actually broadcasts 24 hours, even if for some of those hours it 
is a blank screen, so recording the "last" program on this channel 
probably won't show the described problem.

The best candidate channels to try this on are the ones that that page 
say "timeshares" with others, avoiding BBC Three and BBC Four as they 
often have a gap after the final program finishes before they switch to 
CBBC/CBeebies, e.g.:

- CBBC Channel
- CBeebies
- Dave
- Dave ja vu
- Fiver
- Five USA
- Quest

Can any UK DVB-T viewers successfully playback a recording of the final 
program of the day on any of those channels, with a few minutes added to 
the stop time? I cannot in 0.24, although I could in 0.22.

Sorry to bang on about this, but before I raise a bug I would like to 
see a little more confirmation that it's not just me, or indeed, if 
anyone *can* playback such a recording, then it would be interesting to 
compare the differences between setups.
