My topic is similar to others but not exactly.
I have had the T2 about 4 or 5 years, and have been very happy with it, using it daily including recording.
In the last month its started breaking up when watching recordings and live telly. I haven't changed anything, and telly reception alone is fine, and that comes through aerial connected to T2.
I contacted Humax and they sent me instructions on how to manually rescan, which i did - still the same problems. However, it does seem to come and go a little, some channels seem ok, and some recordings seem fine too. It could be just HD channels that do it, but i'm not sure.
I live quite close to crystal palace, and get about 60% signal strength and 100% quality. The humax is connected to a communal aerial, and someone could have tampered with it, but telly reception fine.
If its just given up the ghost that's fine - i've had my moneysworth, but wanted to check in case i bought a new one and it has same problems
