Freeview recorder will not format

Hi, the Bush DVB-T2 pvr MPEG4 message about reformatting comes up and when l ok yes, it says the formatting failed and timers / playback are disabled. It also won’t allow me to delete old recordings. Is the machine now useless or is there another way to get it working again? Thanks

Why not do the obvious and phone the Bush helpline who will have knowledge of the product

Its probably a linux system in use not sure what file format it will use

You could open the box -remove the drive connect the drive to your and format the drive.

Then put back in the machine and reformat againin the machine if the box doesn't recognise the drive format.

or fit a new hard drive.

You obviously didn't want the recordings if you were formatting the drive.
