      Swapped hard dives between two HD boxes prolem.

      I swapped my 750gb hard drive out of my Thomson box and into my Sumsung box and I am now having a problem than some of my saved programs in box boxes will not play.

      I get a message saying "Recording Interrupted plase wait". This only appears to be happening on programs that were recorded from pauy channels.

      The strange thing is that I can record new programs from the same pay chanels and they play back fine.

      Any advice would be appreciated.

      Cheers

      Have you swapped the cards across aswell? the programme will be decoded when you try to play it and it will check the card to see if it is authorised to do so, if it is not the card that was used to record it then is will not play it.

      Samsung and Thomson use a slightly different way of putting the data on the drive. The only way around it is to copy the data to another drive with Copy+, then at the end of the conversion, choose the type of box that the drive will be going into, and it will do the conversion for you. For further information, Google Little Endian and Big Endian.
