    Started to use my 9200 as sky is going at the end of the week, it froze up last week and twice this morning. Only remedy was to switch off and on at the back.

    Is it a duffer and needs returning or is it something i have done wrong?

    Its almost 1 month old.

    Its the MHEG engine. It wasnt until the latest software update that lockups were brought under control so my advice is to set your machine up to take the next update when it is broadcast. If you prefer you can update the PVR by downloading the software from the Humax web site and connecting you computer to the PVR to transfer it. There is a humax forum at www.hummy.org.uk and it contains an FAQ section that contains information on how to check your software version and update your PVR.

    Either wait for on OTA (Over The Air) update, or download and update ot yourself.

    Since the more recent update I have had 0 lockups or issues of any kind *touches wood* :smashin:

    Mine works a treat but I updated the software as soon as I got it after reading other threads on this forum. Had mine a couple of months :thumbsup:

    Ah well back to Sky.

    Just in case there are any other new owners, your machine is also likely not to have the latest software. The new software that deals with lockups and lost recordings and also chase play is being transmitted OTA today and until 9am on the 7th August.
