    Hi

    After a week of flawless use with the 530H I have now come across something strange. I noticed that a lot of the programme information in the EPG were missing and across the top a message telling me that nothing had been downloaded EPG wise and that I should leave my 530 in standby overnight.

    In the Guideplus information screen there is never a Last Download entry but always a Next Download (which is Saturday at 13:58) and the machine is always on standby when it is ready to update.

    This has been working fine all week so any ideas what is going on. I bought a new Freeview box (the Sony) and initially thought it was a problem with the RF loop through so I connected the Pioneer directly to the aerial (the Sony is quite happy with this) but to no avail.

    What is the number for Pioneer technical support if anyone has it please

    Thank you

    Andy

    almost certainly that the box can't find the 'host' channel automatically (mine can't) - tune it to the host channel 'manually' before you put it in standby
