Problem with timer on Thomson DTI1000 after power cut

I have owned a Thomson DTI1000 for many years and use the timer function regularly. It is set to switch on, together with my vcr, two times each weekday and this work fantastically until there is a power cut. After a power cut the timed event remains in the box but the date reverts to an old date which means that the box then doesn't switch on at the appointed time. I have version 3.4 of the software. Any ideas please as it is driving me crazy!

I have a Thomson DTI6300 which has given many years of very heavy use and still going. However, since switching to Freeview EPG the series record function is recording EVERY occurance rather than just the...

If you select all the available channels for Anytime to download from then the box divides up the available drive space in such as way as to leave you with just 16 hours' worth of space for your personal recordings. The only way to free up more room for your own recordings is to reduce the number of channels you want downloading, which rather takes away the whole point of the system to start with, and also is not actually much of a remedy. After pruning the channel download list quite ruthlessly we were still only left with 31 hours of personal space and that is still really not enough.

The Sky-like UI
This box needs a fair bit more disk space or a more fluid method of dividing up the available space, perhaps by allowing you to alter the length of time the system stores downloaded content. As it is, programmes downloaded will erase themselves after six days unless moved into the personal storage - so exit the 31 hours, stage-left, at a gallop - thereby ensuring the hard drive always has space for the following period's downloads.
Fortunately, the box is smart enought to automatically check that no programmes downloaded overnight match any of the programmes already recorded to avoid doubling up on content.

Thomson DTI2300 set top box stopped working

If there are no lights and no sound, then you've lost power.
I expect you've checked the fuse? If not go ahead!
Assuming that the fuse is ok, the next step is to check the power board in the unit. The unit pulls apart by un-doing 2 screws; 1 on the bottom and 1 on the top centre of the rear plate. The innards pull out, but you must pull the top panel away from the second screw I mentioned as you pull it out.
Inside the bow you'll find the power board (where the power lead goes to). You're looking for bulging or leaking capacitors; this is a comman failure on these units. They are pennies to buy and easy to replace if you can wield a soldering iron. If you have a handy friend he/she will find it easy.

Thomson TopupTV DV3 160 will not record programmes

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!
