    Watch telly, go to bed, thunderstorms in vicinity but no direct strikes here.Had set the box to record some programmes. Next evening turn on telly and notice NO recordings! Not only have the approx. 90% full vanished, the box will not record at all; directly nor planned!
    Am I looking at hard drive failure?
    If so, where do I go in France to have a new one fitted with a view to trying to recover the lost recording?

    I would say it is either a hard drive failure or a fairly common fault on the motherboard that means the hard drive becomes inaccessible.
