Just go to your TV settings and just do a full reinstall ,like the day you brought your TV ,below is from the web site your tv will work hope this will help.
The Freeview TV guide is being updated on Wednesday, 3 September 2014 to create extra capacity for new services. As a result, Children's and News channels will move to new channel numbers.
• The Children's genre will move from channel numbers in the 70s to start at 120
• The News genre will move from channel numbers in the 80s to start at 130
To update their guide viewers simply need to retune their Freeview TVs and digital recorders or boxes where equipment does not pick up the changes automatically. On-screen messages will prompt viewers to retune late afternoon 3 September 2014 onwards.
Viewers who don't retune will not lose channels - services will remain accessible at their old numbers. However, Digital UK and Freeview recommend viewers retune from time-to-time to ensure they have access to all available services in their area.

CM7000 DVR keeps turning off and resetting when I try to enter My Recordings.


I have 3 of these 7000pals and 2 have done a similar thing, one of them did it twice. After the loading channel Master screen hangs for a time, they would restart. Then the same cycle would keep repeating. It seems like after years of adding and deleting timers, the DVR's software gets "confused". I've noticed twice it happened on the hour just as a program timer started while I was watching a program through the DVR. ZAP...Locked up! The power button would not even work to turn it off.

The steps below fixed all three instances of this failure.

To unlock the Channel Master CM7000PAL DVR:

1. Unplug the recorder from the wall outlet and DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA. Now plug it back into the wall power outlet.(This will keep the recorder from freezing and rebooting)

2. let it go thru it's normal bootup, tv guide search, etc.

3. When you are able to, hit MENU and then go up to TIMERS. Delete all of the record timers. Unplug it, reconnect the antenna, and plug it back in.

4. After a now a proper bootup, re-program you timers and you will be good to go.

5. And the best thing is, all of your pre-recorded shows will still be there on the hard drive.


I would suggest that you do a yearly "TIMER CLEAN" to avoid this trouble in the future.

How works time shift


Time shift is a very handy thing... it works by buffering the channel you are watching, that is: it continuously records the channel as you are watching it. The time it records for varies from make to make... Humax machines record a 2 hour "buffer".

Example: If you leave your TV on say ITV and go out, you get delayed when you are out and miss your favorite show, when you come back you can effectively rewind live TV and watch your show. However this only works for the channel that the TV is left on.. if your TV is on itv and you miss a show thats on the BBC then you are out of luck. as you can only rewind what the tv has recorded (the channel you were watching last)

I hope this is the info you were after... if you want / need more info leave a comment and i'll try to help you.

I have Philips DVDR7260H recorder where the guide plus system will not set up. I have done as insructed on automatic and with manual setting with host channel set to bid up tv channel 23with no lck . C...


Firstly, my DVDR7260 (so I guess yours too) can only use analogue channel updates so it should be set to ITV, that is channel 03 (if you have usual analogue channels tuned). BUT by now that suggestion is redundant as Guide Plus updates have been stopped since 1st Jan 2011 as part of the Digital switch-over. Nice one! If anyone knows how to invoke the Freeview EPG on the DVDR7260, that may be the one thing to keep it out of the bin.

Onn freeview box - no ch12, and multicopies of 2 progs recorded


It sounds like you might have a signal related problem. If you are missing channel 12, it is likely that some other channels from that same group are missing too. Run a fresh auto-setup, and see what comes in. If you can find a menu that lets you test the signal strengths, then make a note of how strong they are. If you find that you are suffering low signal strengths, you will probably find that getting this sorted will rectify the recording problem too.

Cubase shuts down every time I try to process a recorded file


Hi Melimiti,
You are not the only one with this problem. Cubase is quite a complicate software. If reinstalling does not help we need to have a CLEAN Install on a new OS. If the problem still persist contact the vendor for the product exchange.

Cannot keep all channels on tv


When you say you "lose" channels, you probably mean there's no signal there anymore but they are still in the channel memory. This is normal if you have a rotatable antenna. You need to mark the rotator (or just keep a chart nearby) with the heading for each channel.

If you mean you're losing channels from memory when rescanning after turning the antenna, the only solution I can offer is to record the channels found (and their signal levels) after scanning a direction. Then change directions and rescan. See what new channels have been found, what have been lost, or how signal level has changed on common channels. Then you can manually add whatever you need, and you'll know what direction is best for each. It's tedious, but you should only need to do it once.

I have a DT16300-16. I dont use it for Top-up TV but the last few weeks it keeps recording programs from the Lottery Extra channel. I also keep receiving 3-4 minute recordings about top-up. I have had this...


The PVR you have has preset Top-up TV channels it will download from as a preset. You need to go into the main menu and turn off the auto update function of the machine. Then in your "TV Guide" menu find the particular channel and deselect it for download or recording. 

The 3-4 minute recordings are commercials for their products and came with the last few auto updates, they're trying to sell their product. 

A crash could be a sign of stress on the hard drive, most of these machines have craptastic hard drives that if even rattled or slightly moved while being recorded upon they die. If you're recording and deleting at the same time (with the age of the machine) I would not be surprised if it continued to happen. If it crashes when you do these things individually it is probably the same problem, or the firmware of the machine is corrupt.
