This is a basic question and hopefully easily solved :) but I am needing to ask as I am a newbie to a SatBox that has the inbuilt recording feature, as we have recently purchased the Dish TV SatBox S8200 - and it is great ...
However, tonight when finding the starting point to play back a recorded programme a symbol appeared in the top right had corner - a red circle with a diagonal line through it that disappeared when playback began, what would this mean?
have you read the manual?
With DVD and BluRay that usually happens when you try to perform an operation while the promos and warnings are playing and means "operation not permitted at this point". Haven't seen it happen on a local recording on my Panasonic though. Is there not a list of symbols and meanings in the manual.
Hi Willis and Biggles,
Thanks for your replies, yes I have gone through the User Manual expecting a list of symbols and their meanings but couldn't find any ...
Biggles, this symbol appeared when we tried to fast forward. My sister now thinks she might of hit the wrong button, perhaps the Skip function.. Thus, asking the machine to, as you say, perform an operation that it wasn't able to do "at this point", and this would tie in with your suggestion.
Many thanks :)
That sounds like a reasonable assumption. The "Skip" function is disabled on Freeview receivers. They obviously don't want you "skipping" the ads!! I just fast forward thru them or copy the file to PC and edit them out.
Many thanks Biggles,
Your suggestion has tied in together what we figured had happened with the buttons, and it is making perfect sense alongside the disabled "Skip" function on Freeview - it great to clear this up .
