SOURCE: the humax keeps on messaging that the antane cable

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.

SOURCE: I have an error message

Is the message still there when a other antenna cable is connected?
Or there is a problem in antennacable circuitcard.
My experience is that the connection itself where the plug goes on to the circuitboard are loose and creating a short cicuit.
I don't know if it helps you it's not a solution but maybe a thing to look at.

LG 32LC2DB television says No Signal after 30 min


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

No or bad signal


Check in the Installation Menu that Antenna Power is set to OFF.

There is a chance that the water that came down the aerial lead has damaged the tuner module in the Humax.

What does the message 'Terrestrial antenna is short-circuited' mean?


It means that 'Antenna Power' in the Installation menu is switched on when it should be off. This is only required when sending power to a mast-head amplifier.

My humax box keeps telling me ive got a short ciruit on my arial


That is because most aerials are a loop of aluminium and have an impedance of 75 Ohms.
Go into the menu of your box and switch off the external antenna power.
That will fix it as you don't need external power on a standard aerial.
