    Has anyone experienced an issue with deleting in recordings while you have an external USB device connected?

    It appears that when I have a USB device connected I delete the recordings but when I come out and then go back to recodingds the program name reappears as a failed recording and you can select the program but you can't view it. If you delete the program again it just keeps coming back.

    Anyone know of a fix for this.

    Regards John

    I've been experiencing exactly the same problem, and it was a total mystery as to what caused it until I saw your post. I'd tried all different methods for deleting viewed recordings but they just kept coming back.

    After seeing your post I unplugged my usb drive and deleting has started working again.

    I'm happy that I can fix this by just unplugging the drive. I wasn't using it very often.

    It's just another one of the niggles about this particular box.

    I don't know what's happened with this product, they seem not to want to release new software to address the many issues people have reported.

    I personally quite dislike the EPG compared to previous Humax offerings, and find it difficult to browse for programmes.

    Thanks for posting a reply it was good to hear it helped someone.
    This is all I got back from support.

    Dear Sir,

    We are looking into the issue at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Best Regards,


    So it is likely to get forgotten.
