My freeview digital recorder which is a twin tuner will now only record programme being wached and am unable to change channels while recording. would reformatting the hard drive solve problem?

It sounds like you simply don't have the cables hooked up corectly to allow that.Would you please tell me how it is hooked up?For instance,what the outside cable is hooked up to input etc. I need to know everything you have available,and what OUTPUT and what INPUT is connected to where,starting with the outside cable,and if there is a cable box or not.Literally everything connected for use with the TV.Greg

Lost arial connection

Have you made sure that the correct 'source' has been selected on your TV? What does the TV show? Does it show, for instance, the menu?
Connect it all up and turn on. Now repeatedly press the button on your tv remote that changes the signal input. This button will be marked as a square or circle with an arrow through it, or will me named source or input. With any luck you should see your digibox.

Archos AV500 HD Replacement

I have found someone who can replace the hard drive al they will need is the serial# from the HD it also depends on the size of memory you have. They will program the HD and send it to you with the instructions ob how to install. I will post here as soon as I receive the new HD back. So Archos lied saying you cannot replace the HD yourself.I will never buy another Archos product again. I have two the AV500 and the 605 wifi which is a joke with all of the Accessories they want you to purchase.I believe they design the products to fail so you would have to purchase their new products and all of the crazt accessories to get it to do what is supposed to do in the first place.Horrible company
