8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |memphis minnie - aint no use trying to tell on me]

well the dvd recorder's packed up.

for the second time.

weird fault. scart signal denied...
which is most disagreeable,
because there is a hard disc full of stuff
i haven't dooved yet.

still hopefully some techguy/girl in china
is going to get a fairly interesting hard disc.
i'll put a note on it...

probably it'll just get reformated
or landfilled.

Why don't you remove the drive, clone it, replace it, get a replacement system, remove the drive, copy everything back, replace drive, watch again.

Providing it's not a hard disk fault, you should be fine.

not yet.
i managed a workaround:

i navigated my way blind using the instructions to 'restore factory defaults'
then when you switch it off and on again at the mains
it goes into set up mode and after it's scanned for channels
the scart signal stays on.

the original fault still remains though,
if you switch it off and on again - no scart signal.

so it's definitely software.

anyway i can now doovd all my stuff then take it back so it's a bit of a win/win/lose.

Ah but now you are between states... you're watching things to clear the drive before replacing with a new system, but until then, what do you record onto? Eeeek.

Get Sky +.

I'll give you my parents account code so we each earn £30 or if you want to be a posh git in Herts, £50 of M&S vouchers ha ha.
