    Same problem here. Corrupt recording which freezes box when try to delete, vew or even just select it from list. Also box freezes at least once a day. It's less than 6 months old but lost receipt so can't take it back, doh!

    Same problem here. Corrupt recording in library means can't view, delete or even select the recording without box freezing and having to kill power. Box also freezes about once a day and have to cut power and reboot. Less than 6 months old but lost receipt, doh!!

    Obviously this is becoming increasingly common! Mine's doing the exact same thing. Trying to get in touch with Thomson isn't easy either - you hve to do it all by email. So far no reply. How am I going to watch last Tuesdays CSI???

    I have exactly the same issue. A corrupt recording locking up the
    machine in the library. The engineering menu option does at least let
    me get past the corrupt recoding and play the other, but I tried
    deleting the corrupt recoding and the box froze in... wait, no it
    didn't. It just took an age to delete the corrupt recording. Patience
    might be the key to this one.
    If this still fails, I did see the
    factory reset option, but this will delete all recordings. I have not
    tried this, but others have.

    I seem to have got a corrupt recording and am having the same problem. I have recordings I don't want too lose so reluctant to reset everything. Please help somebody!

    I am in a worse situation, I cannot switch on from Standby so not able to get at any menus. Supplier does not want to know even though it is in warranty.

Deleting a corrupt recording
A bug can cause an excessively long recording which plays normally and poor signal can also contribute. In v2.91 there is a fix to help with deleting problematic recordings (see 1. below), which can cause trouble when they are highlighted prior to deletion because the preview window provokes another crash. First Re-boot i.e. switch off power at the socket and switch on again after a moment or two, then:-
1. 'Disable Library Video Window': In the Engineer screen (Menu/Help/Setup/ press 1397) this setting can changed between the default ('Off') to 'On' this is the latest fix.

Hi! This is not a great solution and a bit long winded, but aimed at those who've lost the receipt! Start by recording a new programme - the box should still record. Now the corrupt recording is not the first one in the library. When you press library now, all appears to be well. You can find which is the corrupt recording by scrolling down slowly. The corrupt one should be the one with no thumbnail picture (plus it'll be the one that freezes the box up again!). Restart the box agan and press library. If you have recordings before the corrupt one you should be able to scroll very quickly past it and delete them now. Now the corrupt programme is at the bottom of the library list - you can't delete it but at least you can avoid it now...

Like I said far from ideal, but it works on mine. Still no word from Thomson. Hope this helps.

Idk if my tv is digtal ready it says its hd


The TV will provide an HD picture with a set top box connected to the HD input (AV4 or AV5). It does not have a digital tuner (only a NTSC analog tuner).

The manual is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/51pw9303/51pw9303_dfu_aen.pdf . See appendix B on page 58 for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

Do you have to add a converter box to receive free


You will need a converter box or a separate tuner. The TV has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

I hope this helps.

(the $40 boxes that are available are mostly SD. You should check the specs if you want a HD tuner.)

PROBLEM WITH GETTING LOCAL hd CHANNELS


You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

Sony projection tv with dual tuners; only one tuner appears to be working now.


To verify that the tuner is the problem, move the cable from the second to the first. If you don't get a signal, the tuner is bad. The main tuner is part number 859843000 and is available for $47.38 from tritronicsinc.com

Thomson DTI550 set top box problem


Hopefully those of you who still own their DTI550 had it operational this last weekend and picked up the download that fixed this? If not, it should be repeated some time soon. So don't throw your 550 away yet!

Thomson DTI6300-16 digital TV recorder frozen, red light on constantly, no resposnse to any commands. I think it needs a factory reset - how do I do this?


Try Resetting the box to its factory setting:
  • Menu > Setup > Help
  • Then press the Green Button (Even though it doesn't show as an option)
  • Then press the Red button for a full reset
Warning: You will lose all data on the Hard Disk!

I did this when mine wouldn't record anything and dumped all my pre-recorded programs.
Worked a treat.

Thomson dti 6300 freeview box will not come on just shows constant red/orange light flashing all the time, tried leaving power off etc....anyone know?


What to do: if you have a solid amber light If the power light on the box will not change from solid Amber to solid Red then it is possible that a problem has occurred with the current in use software. Before attempting a fix, power the box off and on at the power socket and then wait at least 5 minutes for the solid RED lamp to appear.
If it still remains solid Amber and the box will not come out of standby to ON (Green light) then this can be corrected using the software revert procedure which is done using the box front panel buttons as follows:

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the box.

2. Wait 20 seconds and then restore the power cable while pressing the standby button repeatedly on the front panel of the box.

3. Release the standby button immediately when you see a lamp flash on the box's front display, and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in this sequence:

- Menu
- OK

Note: you have to do this quickly and in sequence

4.The Orange light will flash and the STB will then reboot and should return with the previous version of software.

5. The box will now be running with the previous software version but it will automatically update with the latest version within approx 2 hours and you will be notified by message which will appear in the Message area within the Main Menu.

If you're still having problems please call 08444 159 159 and a member of the Technical Team will be happy to help.
