“Freeze problems on some programmes since switchover”

Written on: 16/11/2011

My Digihome PVR160 has worked fine for several years, apart from occasional crashes. However, since digital switchover in the Oxford area 2 months ago, it is unable to play or record some channels without picture & audio freezing irregularly every 2-5 seconds. I have retuned several times, including 2 factory resets. It has the latest software v13.0. And the signal quality is good or very good on all channels. Some programmes play & record fine while the next freezes and the next is fine again - from which I deduce that it is something to do with the encoding used for the affected programmes.

So until Ofcom or whoever sort out the mess that DigitalTV has made of the TV broadcasting in the UK, I'll have to hope that a newer PVR works better.
