Setting up to record via EPG is normally straight forward- select the channel then the prgramme -OK iy job done.
That is what tried to last night- thine however the EPG came up but with no info on the channels-also the cours were wrong- then when ino came up -all went off before a selection could be made.
So checkeck the HDD state and carried out a mass deletion of unwatch material going back months- SO now plenty of drive spave.
Checked that all connections were in place.
Tried once more- still the same.
Tried a manual set up -which set up OK but did not record.
The HDD seems OK inso far that the stored progs play back.
Generally, on my Humax, missing or incomplete EPG is a transitory thing - it eventually comes back. Some glitsch in the transmission of the EPG, I'd guess. BRYNIT's is a good idea - and I assume you've rebooted it, waiting the mandatory 10+ seconds?
