does factory reset delete any recordings?

    I'm having severe problems with this .28 firmware (at least they all started when it appeared) so
    I'm going to do a factory reset and re-install.

    Having done all the maintenance I can think of such as manually deleting orphaned files
    running e2fsck and re-installing all the mod packages - I am still getting many problems
    such as 0 length files (4 of them saturday) and strange hard resets and so on.

    I've discovered some things about the errors (such as 0 length files often are not 0 length in fact)
    but cant see any connection between them.

    So I'm resetting and re-installing a clean .28 and mods to see if its just firmware patching issues.
    I will report here if anything improves.
    If it doesnt I'll do it again back to .20 firmware as that worked perfectly for me.

    so - will this reset trash my recordings - anyone know?

    No, the only thing that will erase your recordings is a hard disk format

    Good job too, since a couple of us have had factory resets occur spontaneously!

    We should think ourselves lucky, If we had the Humax YouView box it would be a different matter
