Re: EPG Glitch

And another random one to check. When you do connect to your box via Telnet, what is the time according to the box? Clock was a few minutes out - it's not been connected to the net for a while. Anyway a rescan did the trick and the EPG managed to populate itself pretty quickly, and no sign of those...

Re: Codgev2 - status update

The patches (codgeV1 & 2) do not seem available online anymore. Sniff. I usually reupdate that way. I took backups because I knew the day would come but when I try to update using codgev2.tar on usb stick it says it cant open file. No such directory when I type "tar -xf codgev2.tar". I am copying a...

Re: EPG Glitch

I forgot that you can disable the overnight EPG update via the Green button on the remote. I have turned the update off to give the EPG a chance to empty over the coming week. Once it is clear I'll go back into EPG update to see what I get. Hopefully no more 'Columbo'.

Re: EPG Glitch

tl:dr; Tonight tune to BBC1 before you go to bed. Check the box again in the morning to see if it is fixed. Tuned to BBC1 as suggested last night but the problem is still there after an overnight EPG update. On closer inspection 'Columbo' is duplicated all across the EPG for the whole week ahead. I...

Re: EPG Glitch

So how does this actually get displayed on the screen? Can you take a photo and upload it? Enclosed are a couple of pics from my EPG tonight - lots of episodes of Columbo are populating the EPG. But as you will see from the Really channel description is correct but not the title. I get my signal fr...

EPG Glitch

I have recently noticed that some programme titles in the EPG are being duplicated across time periods and channels. The main programme title is duplicated several times but the programme details in the long text description are correct. As an example Bake Off may be showing in the EPG as being on a...

Re: Boot looping

You have my sympathy with this as I am also having trouble with my 'old box' (see Empty EPG thread). In terms of setting up with the firmware you can skip Codge1 and go straight to Codge2 - I have done this several times with no problems. If you look at the 'Empty EPG' thread you will see a post fro...

Re: Empty EPG after overnight update.

Hi Stocks Have you tried Codge's suggestion (earlier in this thread) of editing the Channel list to remove COM4? Otherwise it might be time to go the whole hog: backup all the recordings and the Channel list, reset the box to factory settings, apply Codgev2 and re-instate the Channel list. I know i...

Re: Empty EPG after overnight update.

I had managed to get some life out of my old box but now it is up to its old tricks again. I tend to only do an EPG update once a week and now that is failing. When the box goes into EPG mode it reboots a few times (as they do) and then it will freeze. I normally leave it on BBC1 (SD) and the box be...
