YouView Can't delete recording program is no longer being broadcast

Hi, 

I have an issue trying to delete a recording from Youview.

The box thinks that the program is still being broadcast even though they finished a day or 2 ago!

If I select them to delete I just see Deleting and the dots "...." moving, but nothing happens.

Can I get rid of them without a Factory reset?

I tried a software reset, but they were remembered as "recording".

The picture below was taken at 7am, neither program was being recorded!

Thanks

I think a Maintenance Mode reset might do the trick. There's a guide to it here , I'd try options 2 & 4 in that order. Recordings are kept in tack with these options.

What happens if you try to start another recording for real then?

It was randomly recording some scheduled programs, failing some and there is a random amount that won't delete. Trying the factory reset tonight.

Hi, factory reset with keep recordings didn't help.

Still have recordings that won't delete or think they are still recording.

Ideally don't want to have to do a factory reset and delete recordings.

Any more ideas?

Thanks

There has been the odd report of similar issues where maybe the internal indexes on the harddrive have become corrupted and the only solution was a complete reset wiping all recordings.

Other than that I can't think of any other option.Smiley Sad

could be a hardware problem then (drive ?) , get BT to send you a new box they charge enough.  it should cope with power outages so if problem is still there it probably means the disk is sat there re-mapping hundres of bad blocks.

Thanks, I'll try the full factory and see if the problem goes away. Smiley Sad
