Had mine for a few days and this has happened once. Switched off and back on again still frozen. Switched off and on again ok. Is this a bug that needs to be reported to humax? Still like the box though!
Possibly the PSU capacitors. Care to guess who supplies the kit?
Just slightly scary? You talking about sky boxes? I'm lost??
Mine did it not long after I put it in, I guess it is the same as it happens on the guide? As I say mines been fine since!
Got mine from currys with 21 day exchange/ money back guarantee so see how it goes but so far after I have posted questions and got info from here it seems great, BETTER than a sky hd box.
I am easily worried........!
Foxsat-Hd's have a history of capacitor failure around 18 months old, like the Thomson sky boxes and also Topfield 5800 models. It's a cheap repair, afaik Foxsat-hdr's aren't affected by the problem.
it froze only on the EPG guide
But it would be worth a quick look to see if the HDR has the same CapXon capacitors in the PSU and if any capacitors are bulging*.
*I wouldn't expect to see visible signs in anything much under 12 months old.
Na, mine still locks up after the factory reset. It seems worse if skipping quickly through the EPG. The tuner is still working but the EPG locks solid whilst displaying "retrieving programme information". This was part of the fix in the last update so my guess is that this is a bug and is related to that "fix".
