Re: Box gone Loopy

Found the problem! Normal copy and paste commands don't work with Putty. The paste command has to be hold down Ctrl then right click mouse, followed by enter and the cursor then moves on to the next line and the password is accepted. Normally I would use Ctrl/V or right click mouse and select paste ...

Re: Box gone Loopy

Thanks Barry, yes I started with the original version of Putty, which I had used many times before, and then tried the latest 64 bit version. I thought I had found the password from somewhere within these notes but I do know I also copied it from a PDF file at some time. After copying it, I pasted i...

Re: Box gone Loopy

Happy New Year to anyone left on the forum. My box is not so happy though! It's been gathering dust for some months now because I have both Huawei and Humax boxes. Whenever I power the 3View box down, I always have problems getting it going again. This time it was looping the initial splash screen a...

Re: Boot looping

Thanks, that is good to know. I shall just have to persevere then! Fortunately my replacement YouView box is scheduled for delivery in the next hour so the pressure is off to get the 3view box back on line. We had a power cut for 8 hours last night so I probably would have been back to square one an...

Re: Boot looping

My 3view box has not been used for a while because I have a YouView box for recordings and new smart TV which accesses my NAS media. The YouView box has developed problems so I have resurected the 3view box. It just goes into permanent looping in EPG mode (as it has done in the past when powered dow...

Re: Codgev2 - status update

Thanks ricinus, looks like my box then. Strange that it does not do the overnight update any more, so in 'normal' mode, the EPG eventually empties. Usually just realise this when you come to record something with an imminent start time!

Re: Codgev2 - status update

My box has started acting up again. In normal mode, it was not doing the overnight epg update so I am leaving it in epg mode, which had been relatively stable up to recently. Now, when I change channels or play back recordings it often reboots before doing what was required. Is it just my box or are...
