Hi I have just got the Zinwell MyFreeview and have a few questions, but before I start please no 'you should have got a ... answers'

- I have looked on the Zinwell site, the Next site. and even the Freeview site, does anyone know where I can get firmware updates, my firmware is late last year.

- Sometime when I go back to watch a program I have partly watched it starts at the beginning, not where I left off. Is there a secret to this?

-Sometimes TV3 has no sound. I have an optical connection as well as HDMI switching in my Yamaha amp. Sometimes swapping from Dolby to normal sound fixes it, sometimes it comes right by itself. It seems to be worse with recorded TV3 programs, very strange

- The series link on TV3 records all the progams on TV3+1 as well causing duplications, and I am sure eventually a conflict when it will have 3 recordings to make at the same time. has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix

If its missed the OTA updates, you might get lucky and have Next apply it FOC

You would have to call. They re-flash bung ones willy nilly
