Rebuild your Playlist

If you see error code 773, it means your receiver has found an error and initiated an automatic reformat of the hard drive. Your receiver will continue to work properly, but unfortunately, all previous recordings and future scheduled recordings have been deleted. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The easiest way to rebuild your Playlist is to search for your shows using your receiver's Smart Search feature:
  1. Press the Menu button on your remote.
  2. Select Search & Browse.
  3. Select Smart Search.
  4. Use the arrows and SELECT button on your remote to enter the title you're looking for.
  5. When your title comes up, you can set your recording options.
