I have run into a strange problem...
From about 4/5 days ago when I play back any recording of BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD, Channel 5 HD, I am seeing glitches in the recording from pixelation, sound dropping, picture freezing etc.
This lasts for about 10 seconds and then goes back to normal, it appears randomly throughout recordings.
Hear is some diagnosis I have made....
How old is my Aerial? - Less than Three years.
Does this happen on live broadcasts of the same channel I am recording? - No
Does this happen on the SD versions of the same channel I am recording? - No
Is the signal strength the same on the TV and the Humax? - No, TV at 90%, Humax around 70-75% for all HD channels.
Have I re-tuned the Humax? - Yes (and the TV). Problem is still there.
Looking at the channel that I should see after the retune I can see that the above HD programs are being received on Channel 30 - Frequency 546. The TV is the same.
But when I look at Crystal Palace info Page it says that HD should be on Channel 48 and Channel 30 is not listed.
I am not sure what else I can check, does this mean that the HD part of the Humax has the beginning of a defect.
Any suggestions/feedback is most welcome as this is driving banana's trying to figure out what is wrong!!
