So much for Freeview approved hardware etc working in "harmony" with the Freeview Transmission!
Changes to the Freeview broadcastTuesday, 30 April 2013 17:05 Freeview has recently made some changes to the broadcast which has affected Record Bookings in Freeview approved DTRs. The result can be that recordings are not happening although they have been booked by the user. This is because the information about those bookings is actually sent via the Freeview broadcast and when it changes the DTR is no longer able to record the program you booked. It is possible that these changes will also affect the channels loaded into non-recording Freeview receivers.
To correct this problem please Factory default your unit via the menu and rescan your channels.
- For users of the DishTV T1020, T1050, S7090 and S7070r this can be done in the main menu by selecting Installation -> Factory Reset. Select Yes and enter the pin number (the default is 0000). This will allow you to rescan all channels by following the onscreen menu. After rescanning the channels you will need to reselect your Record Bookings as the factory reset will have deleted all of these.
- For MagicTV users please go to Menu -> Settings -> System -> Factory Reset. After the factory reset please follow the onscreen instructions to rescan the channels. After rescanning the channels you will need to reselect your Record Bookings as the factory reset will have deleted all of these.
DishTV does not have any control over these changes as they are made by Freeview.
