Question about Televison & Video
Hi, i wonder if you can help, the hard drive has frozen on the above box, it won't record, play or anything and when you go on the library and try and delete the frozen programme it won't delete and then non of the functions work so you have to turn off at the mains to re-start the functions but the hard drive is still frozen. any ideas. thanks, regards andy.
Hi this Greynut i have resolved my problem this is what i did press menu then setup press ok then scroll down to the help symbol then press ok then press the green button on your remote control and that will bring up the page settings and what i did was press the red button which is factory defaults that will take your set top box back to the factory settings you will loose your recorded programs but it will be like new setbox again you will have to follow set up instructions and re tune your set i have got all my disc space back now and no problems with screen freezing or set top going off i hope this helps you.

Many thanks to Greynut. My thomson freeview recorder started off, saying invalid/ corrupt recording removed. Got to the point that as soon as it started to record it removed the recording. One fateful night it decided to reclassify the entire library as corrupt and removed it. I followed Greynuts instructions ( albeit slightly different on my model ) and hey presto, recording has resumed. Good news, I only found this website whilst searching for a new one! I would say that whilst I removed the invalid recording as soon as it appeared, it didn't occur to me to remove the 5 three month old recordings of "what Katie did next". Now if ever there was something likely to corrupt your hard drive,.............
