This is my first post in here and I joined to share this issue to see if anyone else has the same problem and any possible solutions.
I purchased the new FVP 5000T box in early January, it's a great bit of kit when it actually works. I keep returning to the box to find it totally unresponsive and will not switch on. The only way to get it to work again is to unplug the power which then restarts the box.
I sent my first FVP 5000T back and got a replacement after being assured by Humax that it was not a known fault however my replacement box is doing the exact same thing.
Humax only seem interested in blaming my very expensive Sony Bravia TV as being the problem. Over the last month I've constantly been changing the TV settings on my Sony TV as instructed, disabled the Bravia-sync along with other features. I've also changed endless settings again as instructed by Humax for the FVP 5000T and yet the box keeps crashing!
I'm almost having to unplug the box on a daily basis now and I'm starting to lose my cool. To prove a point I disconnected the HDMI cable from my TV and left the box box overnight and it still crashed which clearly proves it's not my Sony TV that's the issue.
I'd be grateful for any help or suggestions. If it wasn't for the lack of alternative options then I'd be getting a refund and going elsewhere.
I've done a fair bit of research online and found a lot of bad reviews from other people highlighting the same fault.
