    Posting for info

    Just got home to find my HDR recording. For the first time, I got the much talked about green screen error! Tried changing inputs on the tv to re-sync the hdmi to no joy, vformat just changed the res of the green screen.
    I ended the recording and rebooted the box and got the following:

    Weird.. Unplugging the external HDD I've got plugged in, fixed it.

    E-OS is incorrect operating system, usually seen only when attempting to load firmware from a USB device, see notes HERE. Firmware version and System ID don't look good either, so it looks like the Humax found an *.hdf file on the external HDD and tried to load it

    Yeah that's what it looks like, but there is no hdf on the disc and has been plugged in for months.

    Slightly different error message when I had a problem - but still something to do with an Ext HDD which had been plugged in for ages http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/splash-screen-of-doom.970/#post-12040 I changed nothing about the disk and plugged it back in after a few weeks and it's worked fine ever since. I'm not aware of me doing anything to fix it other than reloading the firmware.
