You will need to provide a little more info if you want help.

What is your setup? The DSE site doesn't even have a G7503 product code listed on it. Is it a DVB-T or DVB-S box?

Its a DVB-T, which had been working perfectly until 1 or 2 days ago. Then the vidoe seemed to come & go. Now it doesn't provide any channels. I've restarted & retuned without success.

The first thing would be to check your aerial and all the connections.

@steve the G7503 is the original DSE/Zinwell freeview DVB-T box. I've got one that someone else is using, not sure if it is going tho?... and asking someone else in the room confirms the box in Porirua us working fine.

This is a typical problem with this unit.
They fail completely after about 2 years following the sympons you describe.
Take it back and ask for a replacement under the CGA.
Mine failed just after 2 years (only produced a picture when it got really hot) and I got a replacement OK after finding proof of purchase. Took about 6 weeks.
Has been other cases of same problem on this forum and replacements have been forthcoming from DSE.

The aerial seems good, i fI bypass the STB, I can view acceptable analogue channels.

I guess given that this is not a signal source issue, I'll need to find teh proof of purchase, although I suspect I've had the box for more than two years.


Thanks for the advice.
