Deleting recordings

It's not a real problem, but why does it take so long to delete a recording on the Humax box, when on my Panasonic PVR it's almost instantaneous (as on a P.C.)?

depends what you call a long time.

it only takes about 10 seconds for my humax to delete a recording and thats quick enough for me.

Its probably down to the way the humax files the recordings and the fact it may actually wipe over the file with a series of 0's rather than just remove the file location log like a windows pc does (hence why its not too hard recovering 'accidental' deleted files from a pc's hard drive is it Mr Glitter :D) I've heard it is something to do with the way Linux behaves but as I'm not up to speed on the format I couldn't say why.
