    yes I have same problem whenI try to delete various programmes from the library it freezes. I have to switch off to get going again. Is this a manufactuers fault and should I claim under warranty?

Just got off the phone to TopUp TV and they knew how to sort this out.

Follow these steps

1. Turn on unit and press menu

2. choose set-up

3. then choose Help

4. On the help screen type the number 1397 on your remote - This will take you to an Engineer set-up screen.

5. Scroll down to option 7 (disable library video window) and toggle this option to "YES"

navigate back to your programs and delete the recording that was giving you the problem.

When we use the DVR to record, during playback it skips, freezes and pauses continually. It has already been replace once and the new one does the same thing.


Hello my name is Mike Houston with the DISH Network customer service department. I want to apologize for the issue you have been experiencing and offer my support to help. It seems like there is a possible grounding issue with your satellite which could cause the hard rive to become corrupted and have the issues you have explained. It is very uncommon for multiple receivers to have the same problem without something else causing it.

I have an HDD rerecorder that now sjips and freezes


HD takes more info and if you don't have a fast enough processor to handle this, that might be the problem.
The age of the recorder would tell you that. If it's 3 years old that might be it. Also how can the recorder record the HD signal unless it has the right tuner??

On the Library section of the DT16300 I have approx 8.5 hours of saved programmes yet the display says there is only 18% of disc space left! out of 60 hours recording time?.


After Re-loading the Freeview Channels on 30th Sept, the disc space was nearly full on The Thomson DT16300. Go to Set up in the Menu, choose 'Personal Favourites' this will bring up all the stored Channels, For some reason a lot of the Channels are marked 'ON' each one takes up disc space. De-select every one, the channels stay in the recorder but release disc space. I now have 86% free. Trevor Rushton

Thomson DT16300 Freezing problems


Can anyone help me solve a problem with my Thomson DT16300? The orange light stays on. The fan comes on and off at the back. There is no picture and I can not programme it. I have tried rebooting but can't get it working apart from the orange light coming on and the fan starting up.

Frozen hard drive


If you have a Thomson DT16300, here's a handy fix that address freeze ups, lack of reception and problems on your Hard Disk:

goto MENU screen
goto SETUP screen
goto HELP screen
At HELP screen, Enter 1397 - this accesses the engineer panel - you can reformat the HDD in this menu - you will lose all recorded programmes and planned recordings but it clears locked or corrupted files

OR - at the HELP screen, press the GREEN button

On the lower half of the screen youwill see 3 options:

Blue - Reformat HDD - clears all the memory/HDD - useful if you have a corrupted file - you will lose all recorded programmes though

Red - reset the whole box to factory settings - good if you have a locked box or reception problems or cannto scan for new channels. It goes back to when you bought the box, so you will have to input favourites and planned recordings again

Yellow - Software revert - allows you to go back to the previous software driver - you may lose new functions, but you can always restore it back again using the same feature
