    Im watching now. Great picture quality.


    I am flummoxed as to why so many people are not getting the prompt. Ive had 2 different freesat boxes and never failed to get the prompt.

    What is going wrong?

    Has anyone noticed that ITV HD have turned the DOG right down to a dark grey? Much improved.

    I didn't get the prompt and have NEVER got a prompt on ITV. I'm going to try to contact Humax tomorrow to find out if they can explain why and resolve this problem.:rolleyes:

    I can only imagine its a dish alignment problem of some kind.


    Do you get all other channels? What signal strength is it?

    Apparently those watching on non-HD ITV got adverts at the end of the game just as Everton scored!!!

    And only a couple of sound blips all game. Just a shame about the result!!! :mad:

    I set this to record and it failed, not a sausage! Good job I was watching it, great picture quality but hey, whats going on with the record option, why the failure?

    It was there in my scheduled recordings... never recorded though, come on Humax I paid a lot a lot of money for this box, get your act together get a software release, or you should not have released this product before a proper evaluation and testing phase just to for profit making exercise, scared that the opposition would get a better box out before yours.

    Criminal that loyal customers that already had the excellent PVR 9200/9300 would buy something else when you released this box expecting a quality product.

    You better make sure that the next software update addresses a lot of the issues that users have with this box, or postings may put people off buying it in the future.

    There are many other issues, such as chase play, which are a cause for concern but a supposedly option that should work, but dont all the time, resulting in stopping and starting in the live broadcast and failing to record the the scheduled program.

    I'm gonna go to bed now , before I WRITE A BOOK.....:boring:

    Hi guys

    Wanted to watch this on my kathrein but no colours on ITVHD in my channel list, i had changed the lamedb file to this:

    290e:011a0000:090b:003b:1:0
    ITVHD
    p:bskyb,c:000d49,c:030d49,c:040d4a,c:050001,f:5

    can anyone who did see the match in hd with maybe a kathrein or dream confirm these settings are correct

    many thanks

    I set my Foxsat to record in HD, and it was fine... for 94 minutes...
    It didn't record the extra time and i missed the end of the game :(

    Is that avoidable, or just one of those things i'm gonna have to learn to
    live with?

    Ah well... it was nice while it lasted anyway :rolleyes:

    No. I'm convinced it's not a dish alignment problem. I get all other channels/ 100% signal strength, 100% quality.
