I have just come back after being away for several months to find my FVP-4000T freview play has ben updated , there are a view recording on there. My question is how do I delete All automatically please
The "TO BE DELETED" functionality has been around for at least a couple of years, possibly since when the Humax FVPs first came to market. This is to do with Auto deletion when the disk is getting too full. It has nothing to do with what you are after.
If you don't want to Format the drive as already suggested then you can hit the + button from within the recordings list which brings up a small sub-menu, select all, then + and delete, that will delete all you recordings in one go. (I am going from memory as I am not home at the moment, but I think that is the correct order)
