Anyway, what I'm writing about today is to ask why is it that occasionally - including today, the only channels I can view on MagicTV are channels 1,2,6,7? I read somewhere on here someone saying these are all on the same 'mux', being TVNZ. The rest of the channels are on MediaWorks and Kordia.
This is about the third time this has happened over the last few months and it's really starting to annoy me. I have restarted the box via software and also by switching the rear panel switch - no difference. I should mention I have Freeview built into my Samsung 46" LED so tried switching to that and all the channels were displayed there perfectly. That counts out the aerial reception then doesn't it? The aerial cable comes out of the wall and goes into the Magic box and then out of that and into the TV which is working fine.
I've had that happen to my MagicTV too, maybe three times in the last month or so. I didn't notice which channels it was that had disappeared, so don't know if they were all on the same mux, but I think I had TV1, TV2 and that's about it.
Rescanning to set up the channels seemed to fix it.
But a couple of series that I had set up to record didn't record, the to-do list just said "No episodes" next to the programmee name, even though there definitely were still episodes left in the series. I don't know if the problems are related or not.
