Wrong date

My HDR-Fox T2 recorder has reset the date to 2nd Jan 1971. There does not seem to be any way to reset it manually. As a result, the EPG is blank. I've done a couple of power cycles, but to no avail.

It has also lost contact with the internet, but this is the lesser worry.

Ignore this. I fixed it. I tried a manual recording, and that brought it back to life with the correct date.

May contain traces of nut
The HD- and HDR-FOX acquire date/time setup from EPG data, and then there is a real-time clock in the front panel module for standby timer functions. Access to the TV Portal functions require the correct date otherwise the authentication handshake between the unit and the Humax servers fails.

I am surprised power-cycling didn't sort it out (assuming there was an aerial signal at the time).
