Thank you for your reply, I shall have to forget the possibility of saving the records I wanted to keep!

Sorry for the bad news I will close this ticket.
PS if you have an old VCR/DVD recorder you can connect the yellow red & white on the back of the Humax or use Scart and play the movies on the Humax and record to the VCR/DVD. It will take a time as you can only do it in real time but that's your only option also the picture will not be in HD but better than nothing.
