Topfield TF5810 adds bookmark at 99% by Simon Slavin
Topfield TF5810 Software TF-NTP 5.15.09T (as supplied by Turbosat) No TAPS, never has had a TAP on it. Retuned on the 30th, but problem occurred before and after retune. I've recently (a month or so ago) had a strange thing start happening to my TF5810. To almost all recordings it adds a bookmark at 99% through the recording. Has anyone else seen this ? TurboSat says it hasn't heard of it...

Bit OT, Philips Pronto by Periproct
I want to start using my old Philips Pronto (programmable remote for anybody who hasn't come across it) that has been gathering dust for a while now. I'm trying to find a really good UK site dedicated to the Pronto that I used to use but google hasn't come up with it. I'm guessing it has died due to lack of financial support (I'm guilty here) but I'd like to know for sure. Anybody remembr the...

Topfield 5800 zero-length recordings indicate HD failure by Simon Slavin
A long time ago (six months ?) I posted here asking about zero-length recordings I was getting on my Topfield 5800. Since then the hard disk has completely failed. Considering it has been in heavy use for over four years, that's not too bad. But it does suggest that the zero-length recordings were an early indication that the hard disk was going to fail.I'm just posting this in case it might...

PVR that can join my PC network by T[_2_]
I think it is time to get a PVR however I would like one that can join my home network, preferably wirelessly. I want to be able to program it from my PC, stream and back up the recordings to my PC. I don't want to use an actual PC as I want to avoid endless configuring etc. I have never had a PC where the power management was reliable enough. Does such a machine exist and has anyone any...

Installing 2 tuner cards by TVeblen
I hate to be a numpty, but I am considering installing a second TV tuner card in my PC and want to be prepared for installation. Currently I am using an old P4 desktop with a Hauppauge HVR-1600 card, recording with the WinTV Scheduler software. Works OK, if you can get by the clunky software. I want to install a second HVR-1600 to record 2 programs at once. The question is: do I install the...

Recorded programs wiped off by john royce
Have got a Humax pvr-9200T it's now a few years old. For some reason it crashed and i had to switch it off at the mains and now all my recorded programs are wiped off. It had been playing up a bit before that with the recorded programs being listed exactly the same two or three times. Is it likely that the hard drive is jiggered? If so, could i replace it easily myself by buying a hard...

My turn for a Humax 9150 question... by Steve Olive[_2_]
Hi group. Browsing around here made up my mind to buy a 9150 for my mother. I'm a Toppy man but the Humax seemed to be a good choice for her. Three questions if anyone would be kind enough to help. 1 - It looks like the only way to quickly record the current show is to be full screen with it and hit the 'record' button. It seems that you can't hit record in the EPG screen to do the same...

Humax PVR - filetypes? by Martin Green
Hi I recently treated myself to a Humax Foxsat-HDR (Great bit of kit!) This has a USB2 port to attached additional storage devices, pen drives etc. I have copied a couple of recordings from the built-in hard disc to a pen-drive and found that it creates 3 files for each recording with file extensions I have not seen before, .HMT, .MTS and .TS. Anyone know what they are and how I can...

TiVo plays intro video a lot by Dave Weaver
I have a series 1 Thompson TiVo, which is still serving me well after many years. However, recently I've noticed that after watching a recording and trying to return to the main menu, it will often play the introductory video. It never used to do that. This isn't a big deal (it's only one button-press to skip it, after all), but I know that I have changed no settings and, unless my cats are...

Strange behaviour of PVR by Phil[_2_]
I've recently got a Humax PVR9150 and set the recording times to start 3 minutes early and finish 5 minutes late. However, on Sunday I decided to try the 'accurate recording' setting and set Time Team on C4 to record. I started watching about 25 minutes into the programme and finished about 15 minutes after it should have finished recording. But it was still recording half an hour later...
