Convection Ovens

When we moved back to Britain at the end of March, we moved into my grandmother's house (she's in a nursing home). This is fab, and has a relatively new electric convection oven - about 3 years old. Now, it being summer, I've not done a lot of baking, but we're coming into the early start of autumn, and I'm likely to be baking.

I just made a birthday cake for my husband. It burned. I checked the temperature, and that was fine. I checked the time, and that was spot on. But it's burned, and I'll have to start over in the morning. I don't remember ever burning a cake in my life.

So here's my question: Is there a trick to using an electric convection oven? Do you have to play with temperatures and times, or ought it to be just the same as with any other oven? Tips, techniques, advice all gratefully received.
