Humax digital box repair

Lynne M in Stoke
Can anyone recommend a tv repairer who can help sort out a recording problem on a freeview box. Thank you
View 1 earlier reply
The Humax uses a Linux OS, and its hard disc is EXT2 format. If this makes no sense to you, you will not be able to recover from formatting your hard disc and will have converted your Humax to a paperweight. Fraser

Formatting my HDD with the onboard format worked for me last time, considering the years I have had my humax its a wonder the disk has lasted so long , anyway so you lose the recordings, no great problem.
