    I bought a Humax FVP-500GB in December. It's been fine - an occasional minor quirk (just with one programme, oddly) with the green button 'watch from the beginning' function.

    However in the last few days it's just absent altogether. I press the green button - and absolutely nothing happens.

    Is this a known problem? Is there a quick and simple fix?

    Thanks

    **Edit** Just tried the red button - it works. Then retried the green button, which now shows the crossed through circle symbol

    Please give us an example of a programme where the green button doesn't work? Does the iPlayer app work?

    I will hazard a guess that you are trying to use the green button on the Wimbledon broadcasts? Because the BBC are streaming from most courts, I wonder if they are maxed out bandwidth wise, so have disabled the "watch from the beginning" option?

    Thanks for your replies .. never Wimbledon!

    At this precise moment it's 'Ill gotten gains'! Sometimes it's Eastenders - it can be anything.

    But the bandwidth issue will apply whatever the program, while Wimbledon is still taking place.

    I have just tried to restart Ill gotten gains on my LG TV,via the green button. I get the "restarting program" message flash up but all that happens is that I go to the live stream (but in 4:3 format). So a BBC issue not a Humax one.

    Interesting - thanks - I don't even get that message - just the crossed circle

    When I try on my Humax I either get the same or nothing at all.

    Still not working - I tried to reset the handset but I'm not convinced it's worked.

    It wouldn't restart Eastenders from the beginning - or anything else. It used to work - but for the last ten days or so it hasn't. iPlayer works fine.

    I came onto the Wimbledon coverage today on BBC1 or 2 SD and, though I didn't bother to press it, the "Press Green Button" message was present.
