Channel 5HD ?

Hi all anyone got this annoyance Channel 5HD in TV guide says no further upcoming programmes I have to reboot box and then they are back but go again next day. Also HD channels keep breaking up and pixelating can’t get through to VM at all. When I restart box I turn off at power point in wall and then wait a while and turn on again is there a better way to reboot or is this way ok. 
Thanks GL22

Re: Channel 5HD ?

1) There are issues with all the Viacom channels at the moment with the TV guide being wrong & not being updated.

2) If you are getting pixelation on channels this has 2 possible causes:

a) A decoder problem in the box or b) a signal issue.

If the problem is ALL HD channels it is probably the box.

If the Channel 5 HD problems also affect S4C HD, Film 4 HD, Sky History 2 HD, Sky Sports NFL HD & Sky Sports F1 HD, then you have a signal issue somewhere in your property
