Main question is how to get the remote into learning mode as pressing the two buttons as per the manual doesn't seem to work

Other question is whether it's possible to alter the colour bias at all

Cheers

Which buttons are you pressing because people often get confused when the manual says one of the buttons is the "power button". Page 12 of the manual actually shows you a diagram of the remote and shows you the two buttons you need to press.

Are these the ones you are using?

Yes that did it

Was able to programme
- the second power button 
- input button
- volume up
- volume down
Can any other buttons be programmed

Also the mute button didn't seem to work for me

Those are the only programmable buttons.

Which firmware are you using? If I recall there was a problem in older firmware where the mute wouldn't work if you had bitstream on? I think? Something like that.

Will check.
On that subject I'm using a Home Theatre Amp but just two (stereo) speakers. What audio output setting would be best?

In particular

Bitstream = On or Off?
Format = Dolby Digital, PCM or MPEG1?

My Amp handles all combinations of the above two

So wondering which produces the best stereo sound
with consistent volume between TV channels
and without causing audio delay

So far Bitstream = On seems to drop the volume (when a 5.1 programme is playing) with no perceivable benefit on my stereo set up

Anyone had a problem with their Magic TV locking up when in standby?

Came home tonight and it was making a humming noise.
It was in standby so I'm not sure what it was up to.
A couple of hours later I expected it to turn on and do a scheduled recording 
It didn't and wouldn't respond to the remote
Had to power it off and on again

What's that about then?

My MagicTV was running extremely hot yesterday and I'm worried it overheated in the hot and humid weather

Are there connectors inside the box to plug a fan into?
