Last chance to Record BBC HD TestCard(s) 25th / 26th March 2013

Last chance to Record BBC HD TestCard(s)
Overnight tonight, 2am to 5am on BBCHD, being the early morning on Tuesday 26th March 2013
BBCHD Channel 169 on SKY, also on Freeview HD.
And other suppliers too.
I've setup my SKY+HD and Freeview HD PVR's to record in 30 minute segments 2am to 5am.
(Manual recordings)
There is also an introduction to BBC2HD 5am to 6am same day.
Not sure if that's on SKY Channel 169 or 142
Same for Freeview HD Channels and other suppliers
Details of the HD Testcard(s) here...

Oh haha, very funny:

Seriously, am I the only one who ever found those test cards and the doll a bit creepy?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Thinking about it, I am not just recording in 30 minute segments, but various 10 & 15 minute segments also.
Then I'll choose the best one(s) to keep on my HDD
I have had a pop-up on BBCHD Freeview, that said I shouldn't need to retune, once BBC2HD becomes active.
Perhaps it's the same for SKY+HD too.
