    My FVP-5000T keeps losing its channel group setting. It keeps setting itself to HD mode. I change it back to TV mode and all the channels show in the EPG, but next time I look at EPG it has changed back to HD channels only. I had this same problem a year ago and HUMAX replaced my unit with a new one which has been fine until the last few days.
    Has anyone else experienced this and found a solution? I have tried rebooting without any success. I'm reluctant to try resetting to factory settings in case I lose my recordings.

    I had that for a while the reset sorted it out. You won't lose your existing recordings if you avoid the option that formats your hard disk. You will need to re-enter the recording schedule so take photos of this with a digital camera or smart phone.

    I have a recollection reading somewhere on here of a method to lock the group that you want to use. I have a favourites group which I call "Main", but every time I go to the EPG it has reverted to TV.

    Does anyone remember this method and would it help HughA?

    Reset to factory settings solved the problem. Lets hope it doesnt happen again for another year!

    I think this was what fixed it for me. The EPG always stays in my Favourites group unless I deliberately change it. I then do this to make it 'sticky' again.

    This earlier thread may shed some light on the problem.

    Yes that looks like what I was thinking about, though I think the last time I tried to do it I couldn't make it work. I must try again, maybe I did something wrong.

    Has anyone else tried it and failed?

    I find to lock into my 'Favourite 1' Group I have to select the desired group, then select the channel I want to view from that group, then press OK/Enter to change to that channel then press OK/Enter again to fix it.

    The only way mine will jump out of 'Favourite 1' is if I select a channel that isn't in that group by entering the channel number manually.
