A user manual is available do a search and you'll find it. I would link it, but don't think that's allowed on here.

That manual however doesn’t cover various common problems and issues. I have bought a second one of these machines for the bedroom I was so happy with the first one. They may not be the best on the market, I am no expert. However they work for me and for the money they get on ebay they are great value for money. I do not sell these machines or have any connection with sellers or the manufacturer or distributors.
The degree of instructions vary amongst suppliers, I hope this is of use.

Common occurrences.

No sound

You do a initial start up search, it finds the programs, but there is no sound
Press menu and find return to factory settings. It will ask for a pin number, the default is 0000

False recording

It accepts your recording schedule, but refuses to actually record.
Either the hard disc is full, or it thinks it is full. Try turning the machine off at the back of the box, wait 10 seconds and turn back on. This in effect reboots the machine and frees up space. If this doesn’t work, delete some previously recorded programs

Deleting Errors

You highlight the program you want to delete, and it deletes another program you haven’t yet watched.
When deleting a program, first play it, even just a minute or so, then stop it, and immediately delete it. E.g. List, play, stop, list, highlight, yellow button to delete.

Screen freeze

Nothing works at all on the remote.

Switch off at the back of the main box wait ten seconds, then switch on, thereby re-booting the machine. Mine used get confused like this about once a week. I have the mains socket on a cheap timer that switches the power off then back on again at a suitable time to mitigate this problem

Payback from pvr to record on a separate dvd recorder.

You can take recordings and via a scart lead, then record them onto a DVD, set your DVD recorder to source from the scart.
