Hoping someone might have some ideas...

My MTV 3700 started giving HDD Error messages. I could still tune all channels, but couldn't record & couldn't access recorded programs [no surprise].

I fitted a new HDD & successfully formatted it, now the MTV powers up without an 'HDD Error' message. However I can no longer tune any channels.

I am running NZ 6.04 firmware.

A TV connected to the MTV RF passthru gets a good signal.

The MTV RF signal strength screen shows a strong signal on all Muxes

Auto or Manual tune finds no channels.

I have done a factory reset, but this made no difference.

Any idea how I can get this thing to recognise channels?

Don't have any experience of this problem, but I guess you should double check that while you were replacing the hard drive you didn't inadvertently disconnect a cable from the tuner. Doesn't quite make sense that you are getting good signal strength and tv is ok. You could also try another version of firmware - 6.06 and 6.07beta are on the Magic tv website

Good luck

If you are getting full strength but no picture it may be that it is receiving OK but the connection from the box to the TV is faulty.
Although if you can see the boxes menu OK on the TV then you should be able to see a picture.

Only cables inside the box are to the HDD & Front panel display - everything else is on the PCB.

Yeah if the connection to the TV was the problem I wouldn't be able to see anything.
