I just bought my first Freeview decoder last week, went for the sommet digital DVB T receiver SHDNZ3 from DSE for $150
I got it home to my apartment complex and all very easy to plug into UHF aerial and autoscan channels etc
I flashed it using the latest firmware on http://www.sommetdigital.co.nz/hd_digital_tv_receiver_SHDNZ3.htm
Now I'm finding channels are continuously stuttering a lot of the time, audio/video out of sync, for 10 secs of video I might only see 2 secs of it
I'm also finding the unit locks up, still responding to some remote commands but not changing/channel/audio and nothing coming out of the display
Pulling the power out the back magically makes it unlock and work for a bit
Did I get a dud? Should I go swap it for a new one at DSE?
Should I have not flashed it with the latest firmware from their site and just leave it with what it shipped with?
PS I haven't contacted Sommet support yet, thats my next step
