    I think you're right.. the problem is the TV is only a year old.. so no way I'm changing that.. but same thing.. it just gets worse and worse.. it didn't do this at first.
    I'm not sure I've done the right thing with the loader changes.. I assume they've installed..
    Have a feeling they won't replace it though

    thanks for your help

    A few years ago,I too had a green screen problem which got gradually worse over a few months, until it become intolerable. My spare Humax worked fine on the same TV. I tried all the usual fixes (except for loader changes) to no avail.
    I persuaded Humax to agree to an exchange, but before the actual change over, I bought a new Panasonic TV to replace the ageing Sony Bravia (for other reasons). The green screen problem disappeared! I canceled the exchange and I have never had a green screen since.
    I assume that there is possibly a timing problem between certain Tvs and the Humax, as there seems to be no definite relationship between various manufacturers, so maybe it is just the luck of the draw!

    That is not how the loader works.
    Only 1 loader can exist on an HDR-FOX T2 at a time. WHne you install a different loader it ovwerwrites the previouse loader that was installed.
    When you boot up the HDR-FOX T2 from full stand-by the HDR-FOX T2 will display the Humax flash screen. The Humax flash screen is black with Humax written large in the centre, and in the bottom left hand corner it will state which loader is being used.

    The idea is to try each loader for a week or so and see which one produces the leaast green screen issues for you. Obviously if one is obviously particularly bad you move on to the next. You'll need to make a note of how each was for you otherwise at the end of trying the 3 others you won't know which was the best compared to the one you had been using.

    trying each loader.. but still getting the issues.
    Does anyone think installing an earlier old software version might help? or would that just make it worse or no difference?

    im so fed up

    Sorry that didn't help but in my first post in this thread I did say the symptoms you were reporting suggested a hardware failure. In my view it is time for you to give up.

    so I bought a Humax HDR 2000-T and what the hell is with the noise?!

    there is a constant whirring noise coming from it, like the sound a hard drive makes when it starts up. But it's all the time, very loud and very annoying. I've never had this problem. My mum has this model and hers doesn't do this.
    It also doesn’t matter how loud I have the TV it’s still audible.

    Anyone had this issue?
    The company say they will collect it and test it etc after I provided a video of the sound.. but then ill be without one for a while as I gave my other away!

    why can't anything just work properly!
