    Hi Guys.
    Having had my box for a couple of months with no problem at all, the unit won't instant record nor show "Record" in the menu to be able to access previous recordings. Instead they all seem to have moved up a place with "Games" now showing as the bottom item. I've messed around a bit with the box, re-read the manual & also tried re-setting it to default. This did nothing to solve my problem but lost my archived recordings :mad:
    Anybody got any ideas as to why this may have happened? :lease:
    Thanks

    You have had a FIAP (Forget I A PVR) turn the power off on the switch at the rear for 30 seconds.

    Regards

    Wow, thanks mate. Is this a common problem with these then? I couldn't find any relation to it in the user guide at all.
    Regards

    Yes its a known bug, Its a problem wuth some pointers.

    There are a number of solutions, the one I use is to always watch the program until the end of the recording before you delete that progarm

    You can do this by watching, fast forward or drag the pointer to the end.

    Before you had the FIAP you probably had a black screen

    Regards
