    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

    where are you based? someone mentioned it may just be while the 20mb upgrades are happening in your area ( my area is being upgraded at present)

    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.
