Apologies if this query has been posted previously.I have looked through a lot of threads but it is taking forever.I have a Digital stream DHR 8250 that has developed a problem.When trying to fast forward or rewind a recording in SD or HD the machine freezes.It will eventually go back to play mode if left for some time. It will not respond to remote commands when it freezes. Most of the time i have to switch off at the mains. Info on the machine says Application 4.14r8683 Minicom 1.33. I have tried disc repair and a full rescan without the aerial and then with the aerial. (A rescan without the aerial previously resolved a problem of lost recordings and no hdd showing). But the problem remains.Wonder if an update of software/firmware would help? Or is the HDD on the way out.The machine must be at least 7 years old.
