Anyone still using this box & if so which firmware are you using?. I using June '12 which is mod of the last offical in April '12 but it still has a timing issues.

1. The receiver acquires the time from the satellite, but the Time & Date change when switching to Vert freq on Optus D1, Horz are no problem. Time is off by several hours & the date by years. It does correct itself when switching back for Horz(freeview) channels but if i forget to do so my scheduled records are buggered. Turning off satellite Time & Date & using a fixed time doesn't work either becuase the EPG is now 12hrs out ie. am = pm & pm= am.

2. With the correct time & date set Daily Scheduled Recording doesn't work, it actually records every 2nd day eg. if a set a recording for Ellen today 21.01.14 4:30pm upon conclusion instead of the recording date changing to 22.01.14 it skips a day to 23.01.14

If anyone has firmware or another solution that fixes either issue please post.

Thanks.

you could try http://www.openboxforum.com/index.php?board=3.0 if you haven't already.

otherwise it might be easier to get a new box.

I've got the lastest firmware from that site without a fix the problem.

Was hoping someone here in NZ was still using this model without any timing issues(even though it's 4yrs old now).
