Redr0c: I'm still having frequent problems with the 'blank screen' here in Wellington. ?Sometimes a reboot of everything will fix it, but mostly it takes several attempts to get it working again, occasionally over several hours.
When you get the "updating / please wait" message on start-up - is this the T Box updating its software or just the EPG?
Starting to wonder if I have (another) faulty unit.
Sounds silly but try a channel change. This will usually clear it.
