    • "Recording Failed due to unknown error". Think I have found solution!

      When scheduling your icord to record a programme at say 3:00am. Schedule a reminder for 2:50am to 2:55am for the channel you are just about to record. This means the icord will switch on at 2:50am for 5 minutes and this appears to help it record the programme properly at 3:00am without the recording failure.

      I have a theory why this error may occur. When the icord boots up for a scheduled recording, the CAM/smart card needs time to initialise encryption. This is probably about 2 or 3 seconds, but if the recording attempts to start in this tiny time interval it will fail. However, if the CAM/smart card have been initialised a few minutes previously then it will start the recording without a problem.

      I have also posted a translated version of this on the relevant german forum thread.
