    Hi I have got one of the above as part of the refurb offer.

    When changing channels, there is quite a noticeable delay, especially more so since that recent software upgrade.

    Is this normal?

    TIA

    There is a noticeable delay in menu navigation, not a significant one but its' there.
    No change in channel surfing but I don't use IR which I believe has always had an impact on that function.

    The delay is caused because the box has to clear the disk cache used by the instant rewind function. Either turn it off or set it to 30 minutes, and the delay will be less.
