.....can you watch this channel?......
Yes I can so I've done a bit of experimenting & made some progress.
The mystery of disappearing recordings (onto Western Digital 'PassPort' USB pocket 2 1/2" hard drive).
22 April - made 2 recordings whilst watching $France2. Later could not find the recordings.
27 April - made a recording whilst watching $ARTE - again can't find it.
27 April - made a test recording of the whole transponder (2 minutes) - again can't find it.
Later I discovered that by pressing 'PVR' on remote I still see the same 49 recordings (most done on another satellite receiver & all of them TS files) that were there before, but not the ones I'm looking for.
But pressing 'VIDEO' on the remote and navigating to (the SAME) PVRS folder I find there are 51 recordings.
The 2 extra are 'ARTE' (27 April) & whole transponder (27 April). The earlier $France2 files aren't there.
I turned off & swapped the drive for a memory stick.
Did test recording - now it works - I can see the recording OK, when I press 'PVR'.
I plugged the hard drive into a computer. All the missing recordings are visible & I can view them with VLC (no sound, because E-AC3 (Dolby+) is used).
Also there are 62 recordings (most done on another satellite receiver & all of them TS files), not the 49 visible when plugged into the V7S2X. But among them are the two 22 April recordings.
Can anyone explain this?
