Customer Question

I have Hitachi digital tv recorder type HDR081 playback and am losing programmes daily. I retune the set and am ok for the rest of the day, but as soon as I switch it off I lose some programmes. I have been in touch with @800 and they say there are no 4G services in my area. Can you please help.

The HDR081 Digital TV Recorder should not be switched off - it should be left powered on over night in standby mode to allow it to retain the saved channels and receive updates.
