Record function not working, no errors

Go to solution

Hi,

 

Our Youview+ box (Humax DTRT2100) stopped recording TV programmes about a week ago. We don't get error messages, but nothing happens on the box when we press record, or try to schedule a recording.

 

Previous programmes we'd set to record were still on the "scheduled" screen, but haven't actually recorded anything.

 

Similar threads state that a factory reset is the way to cure it, but I only really want to use that as a last resort so we don't lose the recorded programmes (not a tragedy I know, but a bit of a pain 🙂 )

 

It's using the new interface. Manufacturer software 27.50.0. It has previously worked after it upgraded to the new interface. 65% free space.

 

Things I've tried, which haven't made a difference:

 

  • Waiting a day or two to see if it fixed itself!
  • Powering it off completely
  • Resetting the remote control
  • Using the BT mobile app to try to set it to record
  • Pressing the record button on the box itself
  • Re-scanning the TV channels
  • Checking TV signal quality and broadband connection
  • Cleared out the shows in the scheduled recordings list
  • Deleting a couple of programmes

 

Things which DO work:

 

  • Pause and rewind
  • The remote flashes blue when the record button is pressed, so it's not a faulty button
  • Apps like iPlayer and All4

Is there a known fix, or is it one of those wipe-and-start-again situations?

 

Cheers

 

Mike

It would be worth trying a maintenance mode reset optiion 4 (keeping recordings)  options before  resorting to a full factory reset.

Hi MikeFishcake,

 

Please see Box Won't Record Since Software Update

 

I'd be happy to extend the same offer to yourself.

Zulu17 - thanks for the advice, I gave that a try but unfortunately it didn't work.

 

Steve_M - that sounds like it might be something worth doing; how do I go about getting that sorted?

 

Thanks

 

Mike
