Re: New Explora software updates

Did you try a front panel reformat as well? Often makes the difference.

 

If not - Geoff has the details, else I should have time to post or send it to you tonight.

Well it seems my Explora 1 has decided it will no longer recognise the drive. After each reboot it is the same issues. All recordings failed when I thought it was sorted - now back to no EPG, Disk Full message, Hard Drive initialisation in progress constantly displayed etc. R.I.P. Smiley Sad

Re: New Explora software updates

I agree - has to be software! But to date I have not been able to find any solution other than doing a format. First attempt solved the issue when I had the message on my 2A a while back - but the Explora 1 seems to be a bit bigger challenge. And as long as the error appears there is no PVR functionality - the EPG doesn't even load.

Re: New Explora software updates

My Explora 1 updated to L113/2 early this morning and I have already had to format my hard drive twice - keep getting Disk Full errors (while it is was actually EMPTY). First format had no effect - 2nd attempt has all systems going again.

 

Could be coincidence and and actual hard drive problem - it is getting on in years - time will tell.

Re: New Explora software updates

Becoming fed up with the lack of CU+ and the constantly freezing of the Explora 2A at around 10 minutes to the hour during the VOD downloads we started using the 3A as our main viewing decoder. We noticed what is obviously a software problem on the 3A

See the screen shots of our recording schedules.
