Hi,

Is it possible to download only a section of a programme, for example five minutes of a programme starting at 5.00 minutes and ending after 10.00 minutes?

Thanks in advance

No it isn’t. Use --start and --stop to download only the section of interest. If you don’t want the few extra seconds on either end, then use an editor to shave them off.

Thanks for your help and apologies for the late reply.
