cb1: I get
- occasional pixelation
- lock ups (of various flavours - 1) complete lockup , 2) "i" information banner won't go away unless you press exit, can't change channels unless you select the list and choose one). Power reset seems to fix it for a while
- clock problem did seem to be alot better with the 1.05 Nov 21 firmware, but noticed today time was well off what it should be
- signal quality has always 100%, but signal level has increased with latest firmware from 5-10% to 40-50%
Describes my situation exactly. + Audio dropouts on optical and dig coax out (but TV3 5.1 shows are fine now)
EPG is slow on any receiver, Zinwell included. I had Zinwell for aprpox. 2 weeks prior to ET box arriving. EPG is standard across platforms as is same Mheg5 software. Zinwell didn't suit my needs at the time (changed now though) as I had an older TV with DVI in and Zinwell HDMI out was not compatible, and then it's component out is limited to SD. Also interesting is Zinwell does not allow native signal resolution to pass through to TV, there is no Auto setting so all channels get scaled to only one of 576, 720 or 1080 by Zinwell box. Zinwell had no real problems for me (not to say it doesn't, just it worked as it said it would for me). Just ran hot was all but this didn't seem to affect it.
