According to reports it appears that a software glitch by Humax is preventing their Freesat + boxes from recording the BBC Olympic channels. It looks like this will not be fixed by Humax.

Emma Scott, Managing Director Freesat has said

Unfortunately the Humax receivers can’t record the Olympics – we’ve been working with Humax and the BBC on this since the streams went live on Tuesday and no fix can be made. It’s a Humax receiver issue and it’s very frustrating for both Freesat and Humax. All other Freesat+ boxes can record the 24 streams.

Although I have not tried it, it may be that you may be able to record these channel sin “non freesat mode”

    Humax have said that a fix will be downloaded to their boxes Tuesday morning.

    The update can be applied by simply leaving the set-top box in standby mode overnight.
