Question about Alba DVBT set top box
At various times of day, after receiving a good picture for approx 30 minutes, the picture freezes, breaks up and reverts back to analogue. The light on the front stays green.Digital service may be restored starting from the beginning.
I have recently upgraded my aerial and the clarity of picture, composition of teletext is excellent when received. It is just the loss of digital service which frequently happens. Post code is EX6 8SY. I would appreciate any advice given.
Tips for a great answer:
Pull the power cord out of the back of the box and plug it back in again. Your box is probably locked up. A cable tuner or a satellite tuner is nothing more than a pretty primitive computer, and like any computer, it sometimes freezes. That's generally what's going on with that particular system.
Normally when a picture freezes it isn't the TV but the signal the TV is receiving from whatever source it's hooked up to. If you have digital cable and the company is having any type of technical difficulties with their signal, it can cause the picture to freeze. If you've ever watched TV with someone who has Dish or DirecTV while a storm was over-head, you may have seen it happen to their picture. However, if you're able to rule out the cable equipment and the cable company as being the problem, then there is something wrong with your TV. So whatever the case, if it's the TV the only troubleshooting you can try is to unplug the unit for 30 minutes. If that doesn't fix the issue, the TV likely needs to be serviced.
Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.
