Sounds like the barrel in the back of the receiver is bad. If you are adept you can try to service it yourself (it's a 50p part) but you might want to take it in for service if you look at a screwdriver and go crosseyed.

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.

Check the signal level and quality. Reseat all aerial connections.

I only have one scart outlet on my tv my ariel is in the wall and mthen into my tv but its just picking up tv programmes on my humax recorder and not through my tv


The aerial should first go to the Humax, then from the Humax to the TV. Make sure power-saving is turned off on the Humax, otherwise it will not pass the aerial signal to the TV when the Humax is in standby.

If ypou want to use Humax power-saving, the aerial must be split so that one feed goes to the Humax and another to the TV.

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.

I have lost TG4 & RTE 1 & RTE -how do i restore


Sounds like you have a problem with the aerial or the connection cable. Hows the signal level and quality on the other channels? You need about 80% quality and 50-80% signal level for a decent stable picture. Quality is by far the most important.

Most of the channels breaking up despite auto retuning


could be one of a few things,
low signal strength, aerial out of line with transmitter.
bad coax connections losing signal strength.
coax broken inside, or old and not low loss.
Get the aerial checked for direction, half a degree out of line over a few miles and you will lose a lot of signal strength, as will old coax (aerial cable) and if you are using an unshielded coax you could be losing signal strength through the cable itself. Replace the connecters and try to use a straight run of cable instead of having joins in it as these joins, even if using connecters, will cause a weak signal. If yiu are running more than one tv off your aerial, invest in a booster.

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.

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.

Freeview box (Duraband)


Hi Sandra , it could be poor signal ,worth trying another box on your aerial , also the aerial lead could cause this even the one from the wall plate to the Freeview box ,if your analogue picture is snowy then I would suspect the aerial have you looked for a signal strength meter in the menu , might show how good the signal is
hope this helps
cheers John
