Digivox DV3 cable box

I have had this box since last october, gradually a few channels have disspeared, last night the date was stuck on 01st Jan 07 so the tv guide page would not work

we tried to reset this aand accidently restored the factory settings, so no channels at all, i rescanned the box and ended up with 200+ channels more than i had in the first place though only ITV 1, 2, 3 BBC 1, 2, 3, 4 and channel. 4 & 5 are working all the others have a $ sign against them and say bad or scrambled channel,

i have read lots of fix's telling us to put in different codes to fix this problem but there is no way of putting the codes in

Can you help please?

Press edit and go to bottom selection system instilation, press ok. type in 1004 on remote, nothing will appear till last digit entered. you will now see a hidden menu. there are three selections go to the bottom one and highlight, to the left another box says off use the right button and it will change to on. press exit till you come back. Go to sky movies or sport and a few minutes later you will see a box updating data, let it update and a picture will apear, all the pictures are now unscrambled. worked ok for me.

You need to Enable the Emulator as this is what clears scrambled channels. Main Menu -Factory Settings enter code 1570 which should give you a new CAS menu. Go down to EMU and switch it on with >vol key. Go up to Negravision and select your area providerer and press OK. Exit and scroll down to Default and hit OK. Will flash "Saving". Exit all the way out.
With certain channels when you first switch to them they may take a minute to upload data automatically.
Good Luck.. Tom (Dublin)
If unsuccessful it is because the code above does not work on your Box. You will know straight away when you enter it if the CAS menu doesnt appear

Have problem with Philips On digital terrestrial receiver (DV3). Since the digital switchover in Bolton, where I live, it wont let me do an update. Can't get any channels now. Stewart


Try unplugging the unit from the wall, unplug the Aerial cable from the box. Plug the mains back in and switch on. Do a channel scan (with the aerial still unplugged). Reconnect aerial and do another scan. With luck it will have flushed the old settings and pick up the channel changes.

Ferguson DV3 set-top box not finding BBC channels


I have solved the problem by selecting Manual Tune in the Menu. This means selecting each channel one at a time beginning at 21. The indicator shows the Signal Strength and Quality for each channel. If both show a green bar (strong on both counts) give it time to identify the new programs on each channel and add them. It will show how many found and added if you wait a few minutes. When each channel is done, move on to the next one. The last channel is 65 I believe but there is not much up the top end.
When I had finished going through this routine I found it had indeed added all channels I needed including BBC1 and BBC2

Didivox in cork area


If you box is on MMDS/Teresterial:

You should download the firmware "digivox_ter_v3300.bin" and put this on your box using downloaded10.exe (This will automatically fix your problem)

(You should be able to find the file by using Google.)

1. Connect to Internet.
2. Search for the files named above
3. Save / Download the files
4. Get the cable to connect your box to the PC.
5. Connect PC to Digivox via the serial port using an RS232
cable.
6. Turn on Digivox & then turn on PC.
7. Open loader software “DOWNLOADER 10”
8. Check settings and parameters. Defaults are usually correct.
9. Browse for bin file (digivox_ter_v3300.bin )
For all files and the downloader 10 click this link http://eko.4shared.com/ and hit digivox

and select.
10. Check “app file” (default).
11. Click “download”
12. A progress bar will appear. Wait for “download complete “ window to pop-up
13. Turn off Digivox and PC then disconnect.

Enabling Key Emulator

1. Connect Digivox to TV (usually scart), cable feed and power on.
2. Perform full auto-scan.
3. Go to “main menu”
4. Scroll down to “System Information”, press “OK” to enter System Information menu.
5. On your remote control press “ 1 0 0 4 ” (ignore what happens on the screen)
6. “Key Emu” will now be visible on the screen.
7. Change “Key Emu” to ON
8. Exit menus and return to TV mode.
9. Go to a scrambled / encrypted channel and wait for update process to complete.
10. Scrambled channels should now be unlocked.

Problems with no sound
To get back sound on e4 sky1 ect just select the channel in question press menu, select installation, select manual scan, click ok on down frequency. It'll now scan for channels when its finished exit back to normal tv viewing screen go to the end of your channel listing and the desired channel will be there with sound. This can be done on any channel with no sound by just selecting that channel following the instructions above

Philips DTR220/05 digital freeview reciever not recieving anymore


If the box is still receiving some channels, then the box is probably not at fault.

If you have done the full "First time Installation" rather than search for new channels, then eithe the aerial, connection or signal is likely to be to blame.

There have been several changes with the Freeview service over the last few months, and there will be more in the run up to analogue switch off.

In some cases, channels have moved, and in other cases the service has been switched off for a short period, low power etc.

Check the aerial on a standard analogue signal, if the quality is poor, then this rules out the box.
