I am having difficulty downloading some of the Winter Olympics - it
seems to affect broadcasts that are from the red button / digital
channel. It ends up downloading small sound-only recordings - not even
sound for the whole episode

NB - My settings are set to record in FHD (full HD)

Examples programmes that won't download:

Downloaded fine for me in HD, duration 1:44:49


Ditto, duration 11:08


Ditto, duration 3:20:42, ends with pairs skating.

I haven't watched any all the way through, but skipping through allowing short sections to play, they all seem fine, though one passage on the last had some video corruption.

Other Winter Olympics episodes download ok,, e.g. Today at the Games,
in full HD (1080)

It seems to me, Red Button recordings on iPlayer don't work, But TV
channel ones do

I use WebPVR and my recording quality settings are: fhd,hd,sd,web,mobile,high

FWIW, I downloaded all the above using the following command ...

perl <path>\get_iplayer.pl --profile-dir=<profile path> --type tv --tvmode hlshd,dvfhd,hvfhd,dvfsd,hvfsd,dvfxsd,hvfxsd --pid <pid> --file-prefix "<as appropriate>" -g

... noting that at one time my mode list was giving warning messages, though still working, but that I think this is a corrected version that did not.
