john: That might be exactly what you have to do, but try "Method (2)" on What can my do when my Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'? | - independent free digital TV advice too.

Hi, I've been recording the re-mastered original Star Trek series currently being run on the horror channel. From the start it has been missing the first couple of minutes and last couple of minutes - very frustrating as we miss the punch line on every show. We are subscribed to Telewest - would really appreciate it if you could point us in the right direction to resolve this issue. We have tried cancelling the recording schedule and resetting - to no avail.
Cheers, any help much appreciated

David Merchant:

a) as various people have pointed out again and again, this website has NOTHING to do with any broadcaster, so you and anyone else who asks a similar question are totally wasting your time, and perhaps should learn to use Google.

b) Your recorder is missing the start and end - you can normally change the settings to top and tail.

c) rather than be cheap, have to edit out all the ads and then watch it just in SD, you can get the whole series on Blu ray for 30 quid, which works out at less than 40p an episode.
