We've been on holiday for a week, and came back to a frozen toppy last night. Our phone says that there was a powercut at some time, though everything else such as the cooker clock is fine.

I shut it down using the remote, whereupon it displayed the 4 dots. I turned it off at the mains for a minute and when it restarted, it went into VF&F before appearing to start ok. The EPG ended on Saturday night, and all the recordings had vanished. All the TAPs and settings appear to be intact. fscheck reported no major errors.

I know I could ask Geoff to recover the files, but I've got a backup, so I'm recovering files from there (slowly!!). I'm assuming the disk is OK, but will replace it with a smaller, older one if it fails again. I'm just puzzled as I've never seen this type of wipe before. Has anyone else seen it?

Guess there aren't many of us around any more. FWIW I had another random reboot while updating a timer in MS, though the Toppy was stressed with Antares and a recording going on...
