Casino Royale - Sunday 27th Melbourne
« on: September 26, 2009, 08:50:20 PM »
I am just checking next weeks programs and saw that you have this program on 7SD at 20:30 with running time of 190 mins.
It is also in the guide at 22:30 on 7HD with a running time of 70 minutes.

Something does not seem correct  ;D

Hi

Unfortunately this is accurate. :(

In the rush to dump movies on 7HD, Ch 7 are not filling in the time differences with other programming. Instead they are cutting back to the SD feed when the earlier 7HD movie finishes. This happened last night - Pretty Woman was shown in full on SD and in part on HD. It's lazy programming and it's bound to create problems but it's what will be broadcast tonight.

If you wish to record Casino Royale we advise recording it on the SD channel, not the HD one.

Thanks

Yeah - what a dumb ass way of programming.   >:(   ???

I also got caught out and missed the first half of Casino Royale... My fiancee wanted to record Romy & Michelle's reunion, and I saw Casino Royale on straight after, so I thought, great!  I'll set a 5 hour timer and get them both.

But after watching the first movie and gearing up for Casino Royale in HD, the bloody thing starts half way through (with a helpful ch 7 announcement saying they are going back to normal programming).

Thanks a lot!
