My recordings are stopping and pixelating

my recordings are unwatchable due to stopping and pixelation. Do I require a new box? I’ve tried switching it off but it’s made no difference. I can’t get through on the phone to speak to anyone!

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

Are your live TV channels viewing ok? That will prove whether your incoming TV feed is the cause.

If they're fine, try pausing your live TV for perhaps 30seconds and watch delayed for a short time. That uses the hard drive in the same way as a recording.

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

I tried pausing and watching and that was ok. The problem is intermittent. Some recordings are watchable others aren’t. What now?

Thanks

Eleanor

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

Is it possible that you're having problems with certain live channels without realising? If the channel has pixellation issues, those will be recorded.

Are new recordings perhaps problematic, or older ones?

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

I don’t have issues with live channels. It’s not consistently the same channel either. 🙁

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

Hey @emb1956,

 

Sorry to hear the issue has continued and thanks for confirming the checks you've done. 

I've been able to locate your account using your forums details and would like to run some quick checks - please can I ask to to switch your set top box 'on' and keep it on? 

Are you also able to confirm which particular channels you have been having this with?

 

Thanks,

Molly_G

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

My set box is on now. From memory BBC4 and Channel 5 have been the worst recently.

Re: My recordings are stopping and pixelating

Is C5 the SD or HD version?
