Has anyone managed to apply a software change to their PVR's for the performance problems after TV3 change.

If so what the PVR model was and the software that fixed the issue was.

Have you had a look at this thread:

Last couple of posts indicate that maybe something has been done at the freeview end to resolve the issue.
Has it made any difference to your gear?

At Present only the JC Matthew PVR is reported as performing differently, still trying to find out what else was affected.

Just checked mum's zinwell pvr and it works a lot better than it did last week. Still a bit slow and glitchy but tv3 recordings can be fast forwarded and rewound ok.

Why two threads for the same question Focus0?

Are you losing focus? Lol

The Topics are similar, ie TV3 and Freeview, however questions are different.

I am after feedback on anyone who has applied a software update to the affected PVR's that has worked in this thread.

The other topic is general question about who and what has been affected.
