    I purchased one of these at the weekend and have a few issues.

    (i) Picture is very bad (blocky) - only SKY news seems consistently good, other channels are only intermittently good.
    (ii) No EPG download. I can only see current & next program in the guide.
    (iii) The box seems to freeze occasionally requiring unplugging & replugging.

    I have come to the conclusion that the problem is due to the aerial. I got a brand new aerial installed on Saturday and the installer said that the signal was very bad in the area (too many trees). When I look at the signal strength it seems to hover around 50% and I sometimes get a warning that the signal is too corrupt.

    Would anyone happen to know whether these problems are symptomatic with a poor signal from the aerial?

    it sounds like it to me, are you in a 'freeview area'?

    According to the post code checker on the freeview website I am. The analogue signal is pretty poor as well - the freeview when it works gives a much clearer picture.

    No EPG download you need to leave it on standby over night the first night it usally locks up then its fine from then on

    I also tryed one of these boxes and never had any epg download, apparently you should leave it powerd on over night but i tryed that for 2 nights running and never had any download, it mensions that it downloads from a particular channel number (i cant remember that number) but in my channel list that number was not there, and my aerial is 100% perfect, ive not had any problems with reception at all, just couldnt get that particular download epg channel, funny thing though i also tryed the Humax 8000 and that gave me full listings right away with no problems. i took the digifusion back to the shop for a refund!

    EPG download currently only works in some areas, and probably won't work at all if the signal is bad.
