my hitachi freeview recorder turns off every time i change to a bbc channel, whether it is bbc1/2/3/4/etc..it's very frustrating....is there any resolution to the problem or does this occur with all of these recording machines..?


model 320HDR10. loud buzzing sound in backround .Started quitr recently.
??


I keep getting a message to say I cannot record as a timer is already in place , but there isn't . It comes on every minute , in the middle of the screen. Nothing about this problem in the manual. Please help. Mrs Gauld
yan.gauld@yahoo.com


keep trying to record but they keep failing ,tells me an error has occurd, sometimes instant record works sometimes.


less than a quarter used up, but I cant seem to record anything else. Keeps saying an error has ocoured, tons of space left, whats gone wrong? only had it a short while,hope u can help .


Is it possible to improve the sound quality from the Hitachi Recorder. The clarity when watching a program via the recorder is muffled compared with watching the identical program direct through the television. This makes no difference if watching a recording or live tv.


An error has occurs with the current recording even though we have deleted all recorded programs


The recorder suddenly stopped working when I tried to record a BBC programme. It is locked and I can't do anything with it. it


Why does mines switch off when I try to change a channel or try to record? Please help. ..

Problem: Recordings keep failing. Sometimes when I record a programme, I get an error message and I lose the recording.

Solution 1: Recordings fail for a number of reasons. If you schedule the recording and it records - but records the wrong thing - the box might be tuned to two different regions. Reset the channels and manually tune them if you suspect this to be the case.
If the unit is on a series record but has missed the programme, check the programme guide to see if future episodes are being recorded. It may have identified the programme as a different series for some reason, so set a series link on any future episodes that are not being recorded.

Other failed recordings can show a problem with the unit. One or two failed recordings do not necessarily mean that your unit has a fault - it could be due to a power cut or your box could have (unluckily!) frozen or crashed prior to the start of the programme.

However, if there are numerous failed recordings and it continues to occur even though you can watch TV OK, it sounds like a problem with the hard disk and this will need to be either repaired or replaced.

Solution 1: Not sure about the HDR325, but on the HDR505 I had to change the 'TV out' from RGB to CVBS. On that model I found this in Menu/Setup & Retune/Configuration. Hope that helps.

Solution 1: yes this can be very frustrating and annoying. this happens to me a lot. i can only suggest where possible you also record the programme that follows-that way you wont miss the ending.not sure why the set does not work correctly

Problem: The unit has just frozen up. It keeps freezing and then shutting itself down.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: It can be extremely frustrating when this happens. Most of the time, there isn't much you can do other than turn it off and then on again, at the mains if the power button isn't responding.

However, there are a few things you can check to help prevent it in the future. Number one is check how hot it is. Freezing can happen when the unit isn't properly ventilated or is in a hot place. Make sure all the vents are uncovered and there is nothing on top of it.
You might also want to check for system updates.
Finally, you might consider turning the unit off and then on again regularly to reboot it. Freezing often occurs when it has been running for a long time, so once a week or so you could try to reboot it by switching it off and on. If you don't want to do this yourself, you might consider buying a timer switch to do this for you at a time you know you won't be using the machine, e.g. 4AM.
