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.

Only tv's with cable hookup have screen failure at top of screen


If no issue with cable directly hooked to 3 sets that are different models IT IS NOT THE SETS.

HAVE THE CABLE PROVIDER OUT AND demand it be corrected--you may need to have one or all the boxes swapped out to see if issue is box or something on the line that only reacts to box.

I have seen in my years some odd issues related to cable or sat boxes--
Saw one where on HD the convergence was way off---but on regular channels it was fine--customer had an extra box not being used and when swapped cured this problem----This should not of been possible but as I learned it was.

NOT THE SETS---you are paying for signal so get it fixed or change providers.

Thomson dti6300-16


You can still record all the freeview channels. What has happened is you've run out of room on your hard drive. First you must deselect all the top up channels;
menu > 'Setup' > 'Customise TUTV', and un-ticking all boxes releases space and produces a report of '100%' free for recording. The time available for recording depends on the size of the hard drive and amount of data saved in each recording and 15% of disc space is not counted. This is for software or programme information etc. and, even when not subscribed, ads from TUTV are downloaded to library. However they are replaced or removed automatically, and messages are deleted after a week.
Also delete all the recordings in the library you don't need anymore.

maybe a defragged hard drive follow this procedure:
1. Select Menu, Set-Up, Help.
2. Press the Green button on the remote control.
3. This shows the Advanced Information screen.
4. Now press the Blue button which will prompt you with a warning box.
5. Now press the Green button if you wish to proceed.
6. The DTR will take around a minute to complete the reformat, and will then automatically restart itself.
Next do a channel rescan.

Denon avr-1907 sound from TV stopped working


Help with hooking PS3 to a Denon Receiver. It worked before, but I had to move everything to a different location and when I hooked it back up the PS3 has sound but no picture. I have it hooked directly to the receiver with and HDMI cable (the receiver is hooked up to our cable box which is directly hooked to the tv via HDMI cable).

No colour when digital set top box attached


Ensure the set top box is set to the correct video out. Probably RGB if scart lead or CVBS if coax lead.

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box


I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
