Did it show on 'schedule' before? maybe you have cancelled it without realising how.

Suggest you delete all the recorded ones (post back if you need a 'howto') and then see if it still does them. I presume it must be or have been set to record the series so they will be in a folder, so delete the folder.

"when I enter the 0000 code it doesn't help" what is that about?

You could always try a Factory Re-set which will remove all your scheduled recordings and mean a re-tune to scan for channels but you will keep all the programmes that you have recorded previously.

Either look in the manual at page 54 or do the following -

Press the Menu button

Select Setup using the up down arrows and press OK

Select Factory Reset using the up down arrows and press OK

Select Yes and press the OK button to restore all the settings to factory default. To return to the previous menu select No and press OK

Enter 0000 the default password to proceed with the Factory Reset

When the factory reset is completed the product will restart and the First Time installation will appear on the screen.

chub_tor, seems a bit drastic - won't he lose all the recordings with a Factory Reset.

lotvic no he won't lose his recordings unless he Formats the drive and that is not part of the Factory Reset procedure. He will lose all his schedule of recordings and all his TV channels and will have to do a re-scan for his post code just like when it was purchased.

ponytail I don't think that procedure will work for the Freesat box
