Thomson DTI 6300 Digital TV Recorder freezes

When I go to the programme library the box freezes and I get nowhere. I have to pull the plug out and start over. It's driving us nuts and has already spoiled one series recording (which is where the problem started I think)

I've been taking mine to my local TV repair man who fixes quite a few set top boxes and knows this one well. Not enough power getting to drive, somet to do with blown capacitors (if I remember rightly).

You can still record all the freeview channels. What has happened is you've run out of room on your hard drive. First you must deselect all the top up channels;
menu > 'Setup' > 'Customise TUTV', and un-ticking all boxes releases space and produces a report of '100%' free for recording. The time available for recording depends on the size of the hard drive and amount of data saved in each recording and 15% of disc space is not counted. This is for software or programme information etc. and, even when not subscribed, ads from TUTV are downloaded to library. However they are replaced or removed automatically, and messages are deleted after a week.
Also delete all the recordings in the library you don't need anymore.

Thomson Digital TV Recorder DTI 6300-16 volume control


The manual is not very clear.
The volume control will work after entering the code for your TV make.
Press TV
Press AV and OK together and wait. The TV button will flash twice eventually.
then using the numeric keypad enter the code ie 0680 for Panasonic,
a list was provided with your instructions.
On entering the code the TV button will flash twice again t confirm.
Now the volume of the TV can be controllled using the buttons on the Thomson remote.
Teletext and other functions like "mute" are now present.

User manual needed


remove power at plug socket
when you plug power back in start to repeatedly press the standby button on the front of the box
when this causes the orange light to stop flashing press the buttons up, down, left, right
(these buttons are on the front of the box not the remote)

this causes the hard drive to reset itself
WARNING
this will cause the box to completely reformat meaning you will loose all data recorded

but after this reset the box will work as new

Thomson DT16300 TV Recorder Continually Freezes


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.

Thomson dti 6300 16 top tv version box tuner works but programe lbrary where recordingd are available has frozen cannot access or delete


Hi! This is not a great solution and a bit long winded, but aimed at those who've lost the receipt! Start by recording a new programme - the box should still record. Now the corrupt recording is not the first one in the library. When you press library now, all appears to be well. You can find which is the corrupt recording by scrolling down slowly. The corrupt one should be the one with no thumbnail picture (plus it'll be the one that freezes the box up again!). Restart the box agan and press library. If you have recordings before the corrupt one you should be able to scroll very quickly past it and delete them now. Now the corrupt programme is at the bottom of the library list - you can't delete it but at least you can avoid it now...

Like I said far from ideal, but it works on mine. Still no word from Thomson. Hope this helps.

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
