A new strange one

Had a real oddity last night. Turned on the box about 11pm to find the guide showing 'no information available' on every channel.

Re: Popping and crackling on HD live / recordings

It doesn't crash in the morning but it is 50:50 whether it has turned itself off again after the overnight EPG update. The only lockup recently was when we were streaming something to our tablet whilst the box was recording. The streaming and the recording worked OK so it must have happened as one o...

Re: Popping and crackling on HD live / recordings
