It has been a while since I had to post on here but yesterday both my HDR-1000S & HDR-1010S went squiffy losing all recordings. Co-incidence or something sinister?
Power disconnects and resetting to factory defaults of no help. All recordings lost.
The 1010S disc has been reformatted and will now record and pause TV OK.
The 1000S does not recognise it's internal HDD so will not record/pause or allow reformatting. I have an external USB HDD handy so plugged this into the 1000S, after checking that it is in NTFS format, and bingo - the box recognised it and I was able to go to Settings and check available space - loads left!! Feeling slightly encouraged I attempted to record and pause : nothing doing either by pressing the R or " buttons on the remote . I then tried a planned recording - the R appeared on the program listing but disappeared as soon as the program started - nothing in recordings. Attempting to pause TV gives a message about function not being available during time buffering. Can anyone shed some light on this please?
