My DigitalStream DHR8205U has died :-(
As there are some on here who know and understand all about the Digitalstream products I thought i put up a quick post for any tips on a last ditch attempt to revive my box. I don't really want to lose all the recorded content, but mainly I don't want to replace it with another make as I do like the user interface it offers.
Anyway, I tried installing the latest update from the MIT London website after the box became frozen on More 4 and 'Update Micom' appeared on the LCD screen. This was after a month or so of it working well following me installing the 'No Touch Micom'. Now, when i popped in the USB stick the TV screen displayed 'software update' then after a time went black. i switched off, removed the USB drive and switched back on again upon which the digitalstream went to first page of the set-up screen i.e. select aspect ratio, but I am unable to select anything with either the remote or the facia buttons, which are also unlit. This was last week and i left it to go on holiday. Tried again tonight to 'roll back' to the no touch micom - No joy, and also to install again the latest update - encore No Joy. So i'm out of ideas until i can contact MIT directly, but if I'm honest I'm beginning to lose heart in the digital stream. I want my electronics to work without faffing around everyother month trying to coax it back to life. Perhaps I'vejust been unlucky, in any case I'm sure John Lewis will step up to the refund plate if called upon, but before i do that, any ideas anyone?
