My channel 7 keeps freezing and comes up with no signal sometimes for days when it's though my my bush digital recorder box. But when it's just though the tv channel 7 works fine. What's going on??


Different digital boxes and tv's have different levels of RF gain. Some need more signal and some need less to work efficiently.
Possibly your Bush pvr needs a much stronger signal than your tv so the available signal is permanently on the threshold of reception and atmospheric conditions will some of the time reduce the available signal when reception will become impossible for the box but still be above the threshold for the tv set.

Modern Bush is not reknown for being a high quality brand and the purchasers of budget brand pvr's often discover reception or performance problems in fringe signal areas. Because a single aerial must receive a very wide range of frequencies it will be more efficient for some channels than others and so one channel could be a fringe channel and another channel produce a very strong frequency.

The signal strength and quality can be checked for each channel by selecting options in the menu in order to check this theory.

The problem might be solved by replacing the Bush pvr with a premium brand or replacing your aerial for a more efficient type. One of my friends had five different boxes before he gained a satisfactory performance and another friend three boxes and still has problems.
My installation has a new high gain wideband aerial on top of my 3 storey house and a distribution amplifier in the loft to keep the input lead short and the whole lot connected by very good quality double-wrapped co-ax.
I had to add different amounts of attenuation for each box or tv set but in spite of the signal being on average too strong and needing attenuating there are still channels for which the aerial is not as efficient and providing only a weak signal.

Hi I have a PACE PVR Decoder which skips channels when p+ / p- is pressed


Hi, This may be due to one or two things. The remote and the box should have P+ and P- buttons. If the box operates ok but the remote doesn't the remote buttons are causing what is called switch bounce and needs replacing but if the box and remote jumps channels they are not the cause but programming and memory retention of the PVR.
Make sure the pvr is not recording anything first as this may inhibit some channels from showing. go to the update page and make sure that the box is fully updated. Another reason could be the aerial not giving strong enough signals for some of the multiplexed stations. To check this select the channel number rather than using P + or P-.
If the channel does not show it could be signal related or moved to another number and not updated. Tim

Have had digital installed and cannot get tv to work through digital. Any advice?


Hello
Thei Orion model Tv is not equipped with a digital tuner inside. There is only an analogue tuner fitted and only analogue channels can be received by this set. To get digital channels, you have to buy one settop box, which can convert digital signals to analogue signals. In short, a Digital to Analogue Converter should be bought, if you want to get digital channels. OK.

Pixelation of TV channels via Settop box


Pixelation is caused by poor signal strength. Check the signal strength in the setup section. Unfortunately some boxes and TVs don't handle poor signal as well as others. It might be worthwhile trying a signal amplifier

I have a HDR1600T now only 14months old. The problem it that all channels are pixellating and the sound is popping. Throw it in the bin and get another ?


Hi, before you bin it, get your aerial system tested as it sounds like you are dealing with a marginal signal. veify this with another set top box to prove a point if you have access to one

How to connect settop box to tv with no avs


You will have 2 UHF plugs on your set top box.. One for input (aerial) and 1 for output (TV). Connect your main aerial to set top box UHF input and connect an Output UHF lead from set top box to TV. Next switch on set top box and retune tv on a spare channel until you get set top box channels (good idea to switch on menu on set top box so you know you are tuned into set top signal )
