    Pausing TV every 20mins or so.?

    Guys

    I have the following setup Nokia DBOX 2 Dons 4.2 X2 image

    Lately (almost a week)

    I am having real problems with non FTA channels the picture freezes for around 20seconds or so every 20-30 mins

    I have tried Ucodes 1a . 13 and 14 and the Evo CAM, MAGCAM, NEW CAM and mixed and matched the UCODES and cams

    I also tried the sportster 1.10 image but had the exact same problem..

    any ideas? I feel i have tried as much of the troubleshooting as i can.

    Any help would be appreciated, please no pops about spoon feeding though :-)

    I am having the same problems, I have updated my cams and still experiencing small issues every now and again, I have no ideas other than just putting up with it for now until there is a work around, looks like the cable firm is one up on us

    Leics area, I have just read another thread which is linked to 'magic keys' download, apparently it is more stable for newer images, I will give it a try, but just looking at it now it is still freezing

    Let me put your mind at rest, I thought that film was severely disappointing!

    Hopefully it will not last for long then if it is just upgrade work.
