    Hi,

    Hope someone can help. Just tried to do instant rewind and got message on screen indicating low disk space. Went into Sky+ manager and it only showed 1% free. I know this must be an error but decided to start deleting stuff.

    All I have left on my planner is three one hour programmes, a 17 minute programme and some stuff to record tonight. But, it's still only showing 34% free.

    I don't wanto do a system reset (don't know how but I'm sure I can find it) because my wife is in australia and the three episodes I have recorded are not worth risking my life for!

    Any suggestions

    The Planner Rebuild option would be the first thing to try instead of a Full System Reset, it should leave the programs intact and reclaim any "missing" capacity, that's the idea anyway:)

    Mine is saying I only have 39% free when I really have a good 70% free. I've tried doing the Services - 4,0,1 Select as mentioned above but nothing happens. Option 4 of my services menu is standard Sky setup, number 5 is Sky+ setup but I still don't have any option of doing a planner rebuild. Any ideas?

    You just have to trust the sequence of keys. Don't look what's on the menu, just press

    Services
    401
    Select

    It works
