Persistent disk errors of this sort certainly suggest that the drive is on the way out, and I'm not sure that reformatting on a PC would sort this.

If the error occurs during playback and is...

Note that the aspect ratio switching on the configuration menu of the Humax should be set according to the TV type, nothing else. I assume you have a widescreen TV, in which case the Humax should be...

If it only happens with BBC1 and BBC2 (which are on the same multiplex) that suggests that it is a reception problem.

You can copy the programmes to a PC with a USB cable and the standard Media eLinker software supplied by Humax (or Media Controller that someone has written).

Then watch them on the PC.

Live TV or recording?

Same on all channels, or only some?

Check the signal strength/quality on the affected/unaffected channels.

(Could be a reception problem)

Sounds like filesystem corruption, in which case you will need to do a Format (from the HDD control menu) - losing all your recorded programmes.

Doesn't sound like a faulty HDD.

It's fairly simple, though you will need to get a "null modem" serial cable and, if your PC is fairly new and doesn't have a serial port, a USB to serial converter.
