Have had the Sony RDR-HXD560 (80GB HDD/DVD recorder)for a few years now and everything has been fine. However during the last few 2-3 months been getting the following problem with recording.
If I go into the EPG and set it to record (either a future programme or the one currently being watched), it flashes up with the red record icon saying its set to record but then after about 2 seconds the recording flag disappears and it doesn't record.
Only way I have found around it is to remove and reinsert power cable to effectively reset/reboot. It then works fine for a few days , but then starts failing again.
Checked software versions on the machine and they show
Software Version - v.1.01.10 CE
Loader version - v.1.00.00
I'm surprised that the software versions seem low - would have thought there would have been update releases to the software given its age...
No sign of anything on Sony website, or unable to find similar reported problems on various forum websites.
Any suggestions ??
