Last night at 2100, I suddenly noticed that the record light was absent at the start of Poldark, despite having set it up as a series link at the start of the run several weeks ago. Having watched the programme live, I checked the schedule and there was no sign of Poldark, not even for next Sunday, despite being correctly listed on the EPG.
I am not having any signal problems and the overall setup of the box is very straightforward, with no odd devices involved, just a TV to display the pictures. With all the other problems which I and others have previously mentioned about the 5000T, I begin to wonder just how much I can trust this box to act reliably.
I am somewhat at my wits end as I rely on this box to provide a TV service for my frail 90 year old partner and she just can't understand why I keep on making mistakes, when in reality it is the box making them. I purchased the box 8 months ago in good faith believing that it was the best on the market and I feel rather let down and disappointed. My old Topfield box, which finally died earlier this year, displayed none of these foibles and I was very sorry to lose it.
I just don't know what to do to restore my shattered faith in it.
