Toshiba Digital High Definition Receiver HD-C26H Locking-up

Dear Sir
I have Toshiba Digital HD Receiver HD-C26H which is constantly locking-up. I have an external HD antenna connected and it is connected to a Panasonic HD Plasma TV via HDMI cable.
The set top box locks up about every 20 minutes to half an hour and the only way to unlock it is to pull the power cable out.
Could anybody give me some information on how to stop this happening or do I have to purchase another unit. (Hopefully not!)
Many thanks Peter

It may be ic chip problem. If persists better take it to an authorized service station to inspect the tuner.

Is the receiver in a well ventilated area? Overheating can cause such problems.

    What model TV do you have? It might have its own ATSC receiver built in and you might not need a seperate receiver.

    Another possible cause is power fluctuation. Say for example that your receiver is on the same circuit as your refrigerator. Everytime the fridge would start up there could be a power drain large enough to cause the receiver to lock up. Try to eliminate as many other appliances and equipment from the circuit or get a Universal Power Supply (Battery Backup) or a power conditioner.
