Dead Youview box

I have one of the Youview Humax boxes from the free trial period that now refuses to load up. Message on screen states 'Boot Fail. Invalid Signature!!' in both normal & maintenance mode. Current version on screen is v7.75. Please advise. Do I need to contact Humax direct as per instructions in trial end email?
I guess I'll have to go through the faff of digging out the box, waiting in for a courier, and losing all my recordings.
How about a goodwill gesture humax???
Now desperately trying to remember what I had recorded. Would advise people to copy the recordings list onto a piece of paper! I am despairing of this modern electronic equipment.
I've spoken with someone at Humax. They were very busy but very polite and helpful, and have arranged an exchange.
BFIS this morning, 19 December.
Pity, up until this morning was thoroughly impressed with the advances made over my trusty, old PVR9200T - which is about seven or eight years old and still dependably chugging away.
Please note, I quote Humax Customer Support that if you reset OR retune their Youview box, your recordings are deleted. So presumably everyone who did a manual retune at the last stage of DSO should ask for their faulty box to be replaced!
