I have a foxstat -HDR humax box and I am getting no or bad signal on the TV downstairs. I can get some channels but not all.


I suspect that the box upstairs is a Freesat box; a Freeview box requires a feed from an aerial, not a dish.

The problem you are seeing may be caused by water in the cables, if they are not sealed at the LNB. The LNB may be failing, but dish misalignment is more likely.

As there is an unused output on the LNB, try swapping one of the feeds with a poor signal to it.

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.

How do i retune for channel 5


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

Picture freeze lockup and no sound


It Was Solved by removeing the unit from its present site and retuned unit to winter hill in a good signal area, when unit was returned to original site it was retuned again. and operated ok. as to what was the course i have not a clue, can only think that due to thie site being a fringe signal area may be the transmitter was on reduced power or something?
