I've got a 1st gen TT Youview box (model: DM370T.02.03.P) and the HDD is starting to show it's age. Basically, I can watch / record the program (same channel, via aerial not internet) for which the signal strength is good with no pixilation. Re-watching the recorded program has moments where the program stutters and or pixilates. I'm guessing the HDD has a few back sectors. This only happens with the play back of recordings over the last month or so, Broardcast TV and internet TV functions are all good.
Is there a way or scanning for bad sectors / file system errors and repairing them or is this beyond the Youview software? What about replacing the internal HDD or is it new box time?
Your thoughts are welcome.
You can try a full factory reset from the youview settings menu. This will however format the drive and remove any recorded content. This can often clear the drive of any corrupt files and set this back up. Give this a try and let me know if the issue persists.
If you want a larger hard drive you would have to BUY your own HUMAX YOUVIEW box which gives the option of larger hard drives however all maintenance and repairs would be down to you.
