Hello. This is my first post here and I'm trying to help a friend out with her unit. We are unable to program tv shows. I have experimented with it to try and record 10 min or so but nothing is displayed. Yet I'm able to hit the red record button and it works

Hi steve747,

More information would be helpful, before that read the manual, chapter 7 in particular.

Manual can be found here.

If after reading that, you still have problems post back here.

Col.

Hello Col. Thanks for your reply. I'm helping a friend out with this unit. Its TBF-200 model. She has only just found the manual but not very good in interpreting it. When I hit the red record button on the remote it will record ok but when I experimented with it by going to timer record for say 10 minutes then I go to the playback screen there is nothing there, also the small black viewing screen to the right is also blank so it doesn't want to record a pre set show using the timer option

Do you know the history of this unit. Did your friend get it new,purchased second hand etc.

Has it ever recorded programs, what hard drive is connected to the unit, size, does it have it's own power supply or are you using a usb stick.

Try a different usb stick or hard drive.

Is the drive formatted to the FAT or NTFS file system.

Col.

Hello Col. It's 1tb western digital elements hard drive. There is a small flashing blue light on the back of it. She bought it new couple of years ago. I don't remember her actually recording on it yet. I'm not sure what the format is on it. I assumed that because I can hit the red record button on the remote and it records ok and works as it should. Just don't know why it won't record using the timer function

Sorry got it wrong, you can manually record but you can't set a timer recording.

Read the manual chapter 7.1.2 on how to set timer

From the manual, last part of the process

"7. To set a recording reservation with the above settings,
select the Save item; otherwise, it will not be saved and
will not occur."

Col.

Yes. I can manually record which tells me the hard drive is working. When I timer record I do scroll down and hit save but there is still no recorded show displaying when the timer is finished

How are you creating the timers (programed recordings), through the EPG on through the menu?
