Just wondered how do I record live News on BBC News channel please.
I am using get_iplayer 2.99 & adding the pid number.
If I can use this version of the software to recorded live TV, will it only record until you switch it off, or can you make it record a set time.

You can no longer download live TV using get_iplayer, but you should be able to using ffmpeg -

ffmpeg -i "http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio_video/simulcast/hls/uk/abr_hdtv/ak/bbc_news24.m3u8" -c copy "C:\TVrecordings\BBC_News.ts"

will capture the BBC News Channel and save in TVrecordings folder as BBC_News.ts
