Hi silver sorry I just meant, sometimes you have to change the 'input' you watch something through. I think if that were true for you you would already know it.

On your TV remote, is there a button which says 'AV'? If so, you'd need to press that to watch things on your DVD recorder.

We have a dvd recorder snd a tv with 1080 hd ..whatever that means. We had loads of films recorded or so we thought. Humpty i have never heard if most if what you are talking about, exceot for sky ( we dont have it though!).
Hope you can help.

silverlining I think we need more info about how/where/when the films were recorded to help. Do you have a VCR or DV D recorder, or a Sky/Virgin box, for example? Have you got the input right (for example, we view Tivo recordings through HDMI2, but Netflix through HDMI1).

If that doesn't work, you could try the inevitable switch off completely and switch on again!

silver Are they recorded on SKY box? If so, go on to the planner and if you look at the options at the top there should be a 'Deleted' box to click on. With luck you may find the films in there. Good luck!
