Thanks very much Frank, I hadn't considered the Streamdev route, so have
now tried that and it does the job to a certain extent.

I get the same issue with that as I do with launching playback in
advance also though. When the timer starts the Suspend Picture is
removed or the recording playback is terminated to start the recording
which then suffers from the continual restarts, so I am still in the
position that I have to be present to start a recording and re-force the
suspend mode or start playback after the timer starts.

How can I narrow down what is causing the playback/suspend mode to be
terminated?
