Just followed your instructions three times but still will not record. Same message "Timer Programme Settings was Unsuccessful" keeps on coming up.
I pressed the Prog/Check button on the remote
New Timer Programme came up pressed red button 4 times as instructed to no effect.
However noticed that there was a list of 25 old programmes which have been recorded over the past year, watched and subsequently deled from the main programme recorded list.
I decided to delete these programmes and then attempted to record a programme and this time it accepted the recording.
Do you think tis a permanent solution - and if so will I have to periodically go in and delete these old programmes.
