Re: New software update(s) - Oct / Nov '18

Anyone know when the next Explora update is happening. I've been told that it might just have a Showmax update that I'm looking forward to.

Re: New Explora software updates

I think I am all sorted - thank you very much to @Luke7777 and his kind offer! I have a replacement Explora 1 all linked to my account and it is currently busy doing a software upgrade.

Re: New Explora software updates

Maybe also try leaving it off for an hour or so.

 

Let me know if you want my spare. (Not using PMs.)

It seemed to have worked after the format and also still after the 1st reboot - but I now rebooted a 2nd time and the message that my hard drive is corrupt and has to be  formatted is back. Smiley Sad

Nobody should ask how we were able to get all of this  :-p  :-D

 

Another option - I have a spare Explora 1 for emergency use only, you could have it as long as you replace it with either a 1 or 2A when you find one later.

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.


No I haven't - not sure how to do it? Only did the format option from the menus - multiple times already now. I will wait for you or @GeoffD to advise - otherwise @Luke7777 might have an option for me.

Not sure about my next step as I certainly do not want a 3A - at least I have backup options for recording.
