SOURCE: panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-EX77EB says

I restarted 'Auto setup' this deletes the channel settings (which had presumably been corrupted) and re-installed them from the incoming signal.

SOURCE: signal strength keeps varying

if you arent in a clear line of sight, many things can affect the signal strength of your network including the thickness of the walls, the composition of them and anything else that may be in the way. if you use a 2.4 ghz router and you have a 2.4ghz cordless house phone, they can interfere and cause issues. A microwave oven that is located between the router and a device can cause interference as well.

My Humax Freesat is brilliant. However it now comes up with the message that 'the receiver is not receiving a signal or the signal is too weak'. How can I fix this, please?

Are you sure that the dish hasn't moved, or that there is something impeding the signal to it? Sometimes leafs on trees can be the cause of a drop in signal strength.

I have a Humax rt531B, about 4 years. During August,Freeview suggested retuning, I have lost many stations, gained several new ones, which don't work, either scrambled or unavailable, poor strength.

Poor signal strength is the bane of any receiver. See if you can improve matters by connecting your antenna to a good antenna amp and connect latter to your humax. Bet it works better. Also position as high as possible and direct it in the direction of most of the stations you want to receive.

Problem with watching normal scheduled TV and recording programmes

If you have an indoor antenna connected to that particular TV, a slight reorientation can make a big difference.

My picture keeps jumping when viewing anything on my humax

What about the strength of the signal? If it is very weak, this could happen. Check the signal strength first. Contact any service technician; who have instrument to measure the signal strength.

My humax won't;t record bbc channels. I have tried retuning the tv.

This could be too much signal thanks to the Freeview retunes going on. Your aerial is more sensitive at some frequencies, so there's more signal power higher up the frequency range. The signals for BBC and ITV are among the strongest ones broadcast. If they are now at a point on the aerial's range where they are too strong for the TV then the tuner will over-saturate. The result is the same as no signal.

Have a look online for a Variable Signal Attenuator. It's a device that can be added to a aerial signal cable just before it goes in to the tuner. The adjuster allows the signal level to be reduced. Watch the TV's signal quality and signal level displays if it has them. As signal level (power) reduces you'll actually see signal quality increase. If you go too far then quality will start to go down again. The optimum point is where quality is highest.

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.

Humax 8000T not used for a while, now says ''no or bad signal'' and says no channels available when it searches.I tried resetting to default settings but still no joy. When I checked signal status it says...

sig strength 29 is too low to lock onto. Humax needs 50+ to lock ideally 65+

is the aerial ok? try the set on someone elses aerial. If no joy then its possible the tuner is duff...but thats virtually unheard of.

1 - The correct sequence for  all channel data input: a.satellite name; b.frequency; c.polarisation; rate; e.fec. Did you respected that for every single one?
2 - If yes then is the signal strength for each frequency above 80% ?
3 - Did you scanned all satellites after you have loaded the data?
