... Even then, if you have undelete installed (and enough free disk space to run the waste basket) the original can still be rescued if you notice the problem in time.
My problem is there lot's of interference on bbc four hd when I try and view the channel live. Same on bbc news hd and aljazeera (I can do without the latter!). I'm in Edinburgh and have tried retuning. Records the same picture with interference.
Forgot to say reception for all the hd channels (including Al Jazeera...) was perfect up until the last few days. All seemed to go wrong when I also tried to record the bridge on four hd?
Are you sure that your retune didn't pick up duplicate channels? Where I am in Edinburgh I can pick up transmissions from both Black Hill and Craigkelly on my main aerial, even though they're ninety degrees apart and the aerial is pointing bang at Craigkelly. Every retune I do on the main TV and the Humax has to be manual in order to avoid duplicates from Black Hill.
I did a test recording of BBC4HD before Christmas and that failed. Saturday just gone I set it to record The Bridge II on both SD and HD and all recordings were successful. I'm sticking with SD for unattended recordings for now, though, until there's a confirmed fix for the problem.
Thanks for the reply. Are you saying I need to manually tune bbc4 hd only or would it be all channels?
You can with the CF renumber package. I prefer to control the tuning process and accept the standard LCNs, others like to rearrange the HiDef channels into the low numbers. Any renumbering away from the "standard" means breaking the link with advertised service LCNs.My TV is better for this, because I can put the proper versions back on their correct LCNs once I've deleted the duplicates. AFAIK you can't do this on the Humax.
The thm file is created when the box boots from standby, or when the recording is played.Strangely The Bridge recorded OK last night - the one time we watched it live of course (connection?).
Checking the files on ftp just now I realised that previously, as well as the 0 length nts file there was no thm file at all. I'm sure these were mentioned somewhere a while back (in this thread) but search won't accept thm as valid, so I can find it now.
Is the lack of thm the reason for the no play, rather than the 0 long nts?
When you say overnight, I presume you mean the 4:30am OTA check. Have you tried rebooting your box after you have made a new recording? I had a batch of 3 new recordings made earlier today, these had no thumbnails so I have just rebooted the box, and they now have thumbnails. I suggest that you try it some time.I have never experienced that. Mine have only created them overnight, or when the recording is played
