Question about Projection Televisions

4 Answers

Our Tevion PVR (TPVR 1100) (product number 6722; serial number TPVR110011073411) seems to have frozen. It has defaulted to 00.00 where the time should be and is frozen on Channel 10. The remote control has no effect except when 'Rec List' is pressed the message 'HDD init not finished, please try it later' appears with the option to press either OK or Exit. However neither of these buttons respond when pressed on the remote control.

    Firstly the TPVR1100 in NOT a projection television.Yes, I have had the same problem . When 'Rec List' is pressed the
    message 'HDD init not finished, please try it later' appears with the
    option to press either OK or Exit. However neither of these buttons
    respond when pressed on the remote control. The unit has been returned
    under warranty (Expires 11/08) and I have been promised a new unit with
    "better software".I have lost many hours of important recording Also
    I have had huge problems with the remote from this unit interfering
    with my Tevion ALCD3270 (32" HD LCD TV.) The units are located beside
    each other and there are at least eight conflicts. I have had to put
    PVC pipe on both remotes to restrict the field of transmission. I
    should really have returned the TPVR1100 within the first month.

    My TPVR1100 has now failed. It was returned to Pebble Electronics and I now have, as a replacement, a TPVR2511. I was hopeful that the remote would be different. Alas; of the 43 buttons, 21 conflict with my Tevion ALCD3270 TV.

It's the hard drive at fault. Take it out pop it in a pc, initialize and reformat put it back in.
If you want to try and save the recordings try pvr101disk.exe to mount it before the above.

Unplug the unit from the AC for 10 minutes then plug back in when it reboots it should be fine but don't press any buttons while it reboots. also if you use CFLs (energy saving light bulbs) in the room remove them and any adjoining room where the light can be seen. they seem to interfere with the IR commands of the remote and sometimes send strange commands to the unit to do wierd things.

After persevering with this unit (and the severe conflict with my Aldi TV) for about 10 months, then the replacement having the same conflict problems, Aldi agreed to a full refund. They expressed regret for all the inconvenience. I was most impressed!
Thanks to all those who tried to help.

I have now purchased a Topfield TP7100 which was released on the Australian market with unreliable firmware. I then waited about six weeks before an update was made available.

We have the same machine that was sent back under warranty for which a new HDD was installed. we had it back about a week and a half and it has frozen again.
i have rung aldi direct and they eluded to the fact that there was something fundamentaliy wrong with these machines.
my suggestion would be to ask for a refund.

Re-Format Pace TDC770D PVR

You can also reset the user settings to the factory defaults.
You use the L, R, U, D and select buttons on either the front panel or the remote control to make the settings. You check and change the settings by looking at your set-top’s front panel. You can also look at the on-screen menus, although please note, in some circumstances these may not be visible.

Hope that helps.........

I have pluged a flashdrive in the usb port. Pressed the PVR buttons on the remote. Nothing happens. How do I get the PVR to work?

The best way for us to assist you is to know the exact brand and model number of your equipment. What make is your PVR?

My PVR has retuned (DSO)to the wrong transmitter. I receive signals from the Winter Hill transmitter and live in SW Cumbria. My Humax 9200T has retuned ok but my older 8000T has retuned to a transmitter in...

Not a complete solution but after much fruitless fiddling through the menu I eventually found that the programmes were actually there but under different channel numbers.
I searched a long way down the LIST of channels (on remote) The BBC1 channel I want is now 800 BBC. Selecting 1 on the remote still brings up BBC Wales.
This applies to my Humax 8000T PVR - I can't comment on other makes of Freeview box.
