Please help, post firmware update issue

Post by Paul76 »

Hi everyone, I need some help please.

I've just installed what I hope is the new firmware for my Dad's Topfield TF5800PVR. I read the instructions on this site and followed them exactly. As a result my new Firmware is TF-NPT 5.13.65T.

I have recorded a few minutes of random TV just to make sure all is well, and it is, but now I simply cannot delete the program I have recorded? The options I have are -

Green Button = New Folder
Yellow Button = Move to Folder
Blue Button = Options
Grey button = Delete File???

I swear I cannot find a grey button on the remote, anywhere? I tried the red button, but that doesn't work. So apart from a Hard Drive format, I cannot delete the files. :(

Have I installed the wrong firmware by accident?

Hi and welcome

Firstly, you HAVE installed the Recommended Firmware.

To delete a recording from the archive, the button you need is White, not Grey, and it's at the very bottom right of the 5800's remote.
