This question is for anyone who has any form of HDD based TV recorder (be it a DVD/blu ray recorder with hard drive, or just a Humax type thing).

I have a Panasonic blu ray recorder with a buil-in 250gig hard drive. I won't go into the specific problems I'm having with it at the mo (cos it could be one of half a dozen things, all of which need investigating further, or it could even be the TV it's connected to), so my question is basically:

If I reset it back to its default/factory settings, will the hard drive be wiped/formatted (as in all the contents will be lost) too? I know most or all of my personal preferences and settings will be lost, but I can't find anything on Google about HDD contents going.

If you do it on the Humax it will. It's the same for Sky plus really, it's just they have an intermediate planner rebuild that doesn't but the main disk reworking wipes everything.

I feared as much.

Ho hum. Just means I'll have to get my wife to watch all the episodes of Dallas sooner rather than later...
