BBC i Player downloads

Just trying to find out if there is a way of time scheduling SINGLE downloads of BBC progs.?? I know you can set up a schedule for series recordings., but occasionally I might have missed one episode or programme and want to schedule d/l overnight.

So even if its a one off the schedule will work? Thanks very much PlusComUK!! Smiley
edit - Oh no it doesn't! Even when a scheduled d/l time is set for "series record" directly you click the D/L link it starts! You can pause it - but then you need to be there to restart it in the free o/night period.
