Earlier this week when I pressed the medium button, to find a recording to watch, the list was blank, everything had disappeared. It did however record a programme I was watching and that was on the list when I looked (only thing there). Today it too has disappeared and there is a blank list.
It does say HDD in the list heading which I never noticed before, if that means anything.
I've googled about a bit but am a bit loath to try something that might make things worse
For example someone on the Humax Forum said "Try formatting the hard drive from the HDD Control menu item in the Record menu. Default PIN is 0000."
I read somewhere else to "do a factory reset".
Any suggestions anyone?

A corrupted system file can produce this problem but unfortunately the only cure might be a format which will wipe everything.

You can save recordings by removing the HD and plugging it into a PC and transferring them with Humaxrw but it's a bit involved.

Lots of niggling issues can be sorted by doing a disk cleanup. I've done this twice it doesn't delete any recordings for instance, just cleans up some files left over from recordings.
Settings > Storage> HDD>Start Disk Clean up
PIN is 0000
takes a couple of minutes, then reboot the Humax and hopefully your issue will be sorted.

I'm using a Humax HDR 1000S/1010S btw.
