Question about Televison & Video
It's the hard drive at fault. Take it out pop it in a pc, initialize and reformat put it back in.
If you want to try and save the recordings try pvr101disk.exe to mount it before the above.

Unplug the unit from the AC for 10 minutes then plug back in when it reboots it should be fine but don't press any buttons while it reboots. also if you use CFLs (energy saving light bulbs) in the room remove them and any adjoining room where the light can be seen. they seem to interfere with the IR commands of the remote and sometimes send strange commands to the unit to do wierd things.

After persevering with this unit (and the severe conflict with my Aldi TV) for about 10 months, then the replacement having the same conflict problems, Aldi agreed to a full refund. They expressed regret for all the inconvenience. I was most impressed!
Thanks to all those who tried to help.
I have now purchased a Topfield TP7100 which was released on the Australian market with unreliable firmware. I then waited about six weeks before an update was made available.

We have the same machine that was sent back under warranty for which a new HDD was installed. we had it back about a week and a half and it has frozen again.
i have rung aldi direct and they eluded to the fact that there was something fundamentaliy wrong with these machines.
my suggestion would be to ask for a refund.
