    Flashing firmware does not wipe the hdd.

    As regards switching SD off first, I suggested that previously but you were hesitant to try it.
    All I can say is that it would make sense to me if the box defaulted to hd & sd both on after a reset because that would allow people without hdmi to access the box via component if there was an issue. But who knows?
    At the moment you have a box that you can at least watch the recordings, perhaps wait until you have watched everything and then try all options.
    If it was me I would have tried every option including a full reformat by now because I would hazard a guess that 90% of everything you have recorded can be accessed via the various catchup services (take some photos on your phone or write a list of everything to remind you).
    Sometimes, like any computerised device, the box can get itself in a complete mess that only a full reset will cure. And then, sometimes, components fail in strange ways.

    Thanks for that and sorry about the long delay on a reply.
    I'll download the board flash as soon as I get a USB stick from the link that you supplied and then if the SD switch off doesn't work, hopefully the board flash will reset it back.
