It's probably a corrupt file. Probably the first one in your library.
What you need to do is go into the library and quickly delete that file.
You need to press delete and confirm before it has had time to notice the file is corrupt.
I think it's green then blue, might be blue then green. I forget.

BTW, If anyone out there knows how to make use of the USB port on these things, can you let me know?

SOURCE: just installed new tvonics250 freeview + box

Hi,

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.

You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

SOURCE: I ws using my humax to watch a programme, when the picture froze.

It can sometimes happen if the signal level drops & the TV digital decoder cannot pick up the strength of the signal when the transmission is back to normal. Switching on & off again resets the processing again. This is a similar effect that can happen with cable or sky transmissions also, it acts the smae way as sometimes having to re-boot your PC if that should crash. It is not necessarily a fault with the TV.

SOURCE: 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.

This device has a fan that will turn on when the temperature of the internal hard drive reaches a certain level. The problem may be due to a faulty sensor, fan or both. here's a forum for this hardware that may be of help: http://hummy.tv/forum/forums/hdr-fox-t2-freeview-recorder.13/

Hi, I have a 32LG3000 HD tv with software version 3.47.1. I just bought a Humax FoxT2 HD free view box but when connected via hdmi to the LG tv a message briefly comes up on the tv saying invalid format...


I , would try using another ( alternative connection) from your humax , say the scart cable just to see if it , the humax is ok. then if tv has more than 1 hdmi skt try it too, if still not working retry upgrade firmware route

The humax keeps on messaging that the antane cable is short circuited. is this an internal problem or a problem with the aerial itsefl


The Humax PVR-150T will definitely have problems using an indoor set top aerial; this is true of almost all Freeview receivers. Freeview signals are typically hundreds of times weaker than terrestrial transmissions and if you've managed with a set top aerial so far it's been working more by luck than design. I find that most set top aerials are so badly made that they're often faulty when new, but as most tend to flogged cheaply at markets and car boot sales the supply chain has no incentive to improve the product.

There has recently been a national Freeview retune, to complete this correctly your box needs the kind of solid and reliable signal which you cannot get with a set top aerial. Some receivers had compatibility issues with the retune and in many cases manufacturers broadcast OAD's (Over Air Downloads) to update the firmware in the boxes to be compatible. OAD's almost never successfully install via set top aerials.

There is an official list of Freeview devices which are known to have problems with the retune; unfortunately it has not proven to be a comprehensive list. The Humax MG-TU1 is one of those which have had problems and from memory it's closely related to your Humax PVR. The official advice is that you contact Humax directly on 0870 247 8800, but they'll probably instruct you to test your box using the aerial system it's designed to use before they'll be interested in offering further assistance.

No you cannot record on to your pvr in HD, and yes you will have to wait for an HD-pvr unit. This is because of the HDCP agreements.
