Not noticed slow channel change, or lockups, on my Edision Primo :ph34r:
To lock up the Edision Primo: Start a recording then press "media" on the remote control or select "audio" on the remote control and try to change the audio stream.

The second case is understandable because a useful feature is that the Primo sets the current output audio stream as the default in the recording so that MPV plays the english sound on the french recordings without needing to select it. But you need to have identified which is the english channel before you start the recording.

WARNING: Having locked up the GUI there is no safe way to recover. The recording doesn't terminate at the end of the timer, the pwrbtn is not mapped into ACPI so that won't do anything. What I do is watch the blinking lights on the SATA to USB3 adapter that blink intermittently during a recording. Immediately some blinking stops I pull the USB out.
A safer way would be to disconnect the LNB which would stop the Primo sending data to the disk.

I am still on the .48 version.

Hello, you write about -format-, not the way to go, this is a command to do 'things' with already existing \ old partitions.
You'd want to get rid of all partitons and recreate a fresh 'rejuvenated' 1 partition disk.

First of all: delete all existing partitions (results in unallocated space for the complete disk).
Next create 1 partition using all unallocated space.

Format is not involved at all.

Many thanks.

I finally got around to doing what you suggested (was waiting for another, much shorter, USB->miniUSB cable to arrive in order to do a couple of things at once), i.e. deleting all existing partitions and creating a single unformatted partition, and that appears to have worked.

The SX88 reports the partition as "Normal" and recording then seems to work (not yet tried for more than a minute or so as a test ) which I was then able to delete - but only after rebooting the SX88, opening the Record File Browser and then deleting the Recording.

Bizarely, OTOH, after doing the Deletion, the Record File Browser then displayed a "Recording" message but there was no "REC" message on the SX88 display, and there was no actual recording shown when I exited and re-opened the Record File Browser. Odd behaviour, but at least I now kinda understand what could cause it.
