I have recorded tv programmes on my hard drive, 98 pages worth, I want to delete some programmes I've watched but it takes ages to delete them one by one. I'm sure I read that you cannot just delete

Did you finaleze the DVD after dubbing?
After dubbing material from hard disk to DVD you need to "finalize" the DVD disk to make it playable. You would think that this action would be accessible from the "Dubbing" menu. It's not. Each time, you have to go to the "Setup" menu, which is normally used for the initial setup of the video tuners and default values of record/playback preferences.

Are you deleting the files correctly ?
For example, If you choose the "Navigation" button on the remote to view a list of what you have recorded on HD and you see that several of them are no longer of interest and can be deleted, you have to back out step by step from the "Navigation" set of menus, then press the "Edit" button to first choose an action (delete) then get the same list of programs to choose the ones to delete

Have you used this machine in the past successfully?

Cheers

SOURCE: Faulty hard drive

Your hard drive needs to be replaced. They don't tell you in the operators manual, but these drives are extremely vulnerable to shock (even a 1/4" drop can kill them) and temperature change.

These machines are not sophisticated enough to mark bad sectors and work around them. Without a new hard rive, your machine will not work.

It is very unlikely, but there is a tiny chance you could reset the hard drive with a service remote. But considering how expensive and difficult it is to get a service remote, it is not worth the effort. You would also need a service manual, whic BTW is not particularly good, so you would need a lot of time and the chances of success are very small.

Considering repair costs, you may be better off financially to get a new DVR.

Hi again

Well done!

I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.

Thanks again and kind regards

Can I record programs from the BT vision box to my USB to watch on my PC


Usually it works the other way around: you download videos to your PC, copy/transfer them to a flash drive and then watch those videos from the flash drive on the big screen of your TV rather than on your PC's not-so-big screen. To do what you want, check if your BT Vision box has the capability to copy files from its internal hard drive to the USB flash drive.

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.

My Thomson Top up TV box will not record. I go to the TV guide, press the R button. It then takes me to 'Planned Recordings' list. I press R again and the programme I want to record disapperas. I get...


Sounds to me like your hard drive is full. Do you use the topup tv part of the box? If not, deselect all the topup tv channels. This will free up a significant amount of drive. Failing that, you'll have to delete some of your programs, sorry!
To deselect topup tv channels;
Go into the menu option, Customise Top Up TV Anytime, and de-activate all the selected channels

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??

I have a DT16300-16. I dont use it for Top-up TV but the last few weeks it keeps recording programs from the Lottery Extra channel. I also keep receiving 3-4 minute recordings about top-up. I have had this...


The PVR you have has preset Top-up TV channels it will download from as a preset. You need to go into the main menu and turn off the auto update function of the machine. Then in your "TV Guide" menu find the particular channel and deselect it for download or recording. 

The 3-4 minute recordings are commercials for their products and came with the last few auto updates, they're trying to sell their product. 

A crash could be a sign of stress on the hard drive, most of these machines have craptastic hard drives that if even rattled or slightly moved while being recorded upon they die. If you're recording and deleting at the same time (with the age of the machine) I would not be surprised if it continued to happen. If it crashes when you do these things individually it is probably the same problem, or the firmware of the machine is corrupt.

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
