It's probably a corrupt file. Probably the first one in your library.
What you need to do is go into the library and quickly delete that file.
You need to press delete and confirm before it has had time to notice the file is corrupt.
I think it's green then blue, might be blue then green. I forget.

BTW, If anyone out there knows how to make use of the USB port on these things, can you let me know?

My Thompson DTR is nearly 2 years old and it does not record any more - even wiped off programmes I had recorded. Shall I just ditch it ?


Nooooooooo! It may be you have no room left on your hard drive. Try deleting some of your recordings and see if that helps. De-select topup tv channels you don't watch (in my case all of them), this can free up to half of your hard disk. Failing that, do a factory reset, hard disk format and retune. You will lose all your recordings, but may well gain your functionality.

Sharp TU-TV322H failing to make planned recordings


I had this problem aswell! I tried everything but ended up phoneing the help line, when they asked for what frequancies they found out i was picking up different ones form two different stations. I took the ariel out of the back on the freeview box and run a scan for channels (of course it came up with none as the ariel is unpluged but it overwirites and clears the incorect frequencies). Then plug the areil back into the freeview box and run a scan for channels. After doing this i picked up the correct frequencines form the correct station and my recordings actually recorded! If you phone the help line (08444159159) they will tell you what frequencies you should be picking up. I hope this qorkes for you!

Can i use the USB port on my sagum freeview reciever to download programmes to my PC?


This appears to be a television tuner with accompanying recording software. You can watch TV and record what you watch. You cannot "download from the Internet" using this device, if that is what you mean.

This could solve problem
1. Select Menu, Set-Up, Help.
2. Press the Green button on the remote control.
3. This shows the Advanced Information screen.
4. Now press the Blue button which will prompt you with a warning box.
5. Now press the Green button if you wish to proceed.
6. The DTR will take around a minute to complete the reformat, and will then automatically restart itself.
Next do a channel rescan.

Recording fails to delete


Record another programme so that you have something above the dodgy one in your library. Then go back into your library and press down, blue then green really fast. This worked on mine.
