Purchase one of the automatic searching programmable remotes. Make sure that it is a remote that can search and not one that only has a list. I found that a lot of inexpensive ones (less than £20) do get to work some basic functions - recording included. The usual way to set these up is to set the device you want to control to on and set the remote to search for the code. When the device turns off you will have found a code which you store - please note that there maybe multiple codes that work with a device and it is just a matter of trying each reactive code in turn for the closest functionality. In other words some codes might appear to change channels give menus but not work with the coloured buttons whereas another code later on the sequence might do everything. So its a long process to ensure you have the right code, but once its found - you have a remote again. It can also be setup to run multiple devices - so one control does the lot!

The solution is the quality settings on the DVD settings. On a 4.7Gb disk, 279 minutes at 24% quality, down to 70 minutes at best quality. Also, more will fit on the 8.5Gb DL disks. You can also use automatic quality, that will fit the video that you have compiled onto a disk, using the highest quality setting that will allow it to fit. An alternate method is to 'burn' to an image file on the HD, then use a program like 'DVDShrink' to fit on the disk.

The part re the other channels having no signal....I had the same problem with mine and that was because the small loop cable in the back wasnt right. I could watch all channels, press record and still watch that channel but try to watch a diff channel while its recording and they were gone. As soon as I had the loop cable in properly it solved the problem. Hope this helps....

If you have no recordings and it's playing up, I'd do a complete reset as follows;
Restore Factory Defaults
This will restore all the factory settings and erase the contents of the box.
This will re-partition and re-format the hard drive.
This will wipe everything you have recorded. It will also dump your 14 day Electronic Program Guide which will take upto a day to reload. Leave the unit on standby.
You might want to take this opporunity to do a channel scan as well.

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
