TBox registration

Answered

Can you still register a TBOX. I want to use it to record programs as I do not have any other device that does this. Also the TBOX is great for rewinding and pausing etc. Ihave been able to set it up. but cannot access program guide to schedule any of my programs to record.

Re: TBox registration

No, you can't register the TBox. That system was decommissioned.

The TBox now only provides a basic EPG and you can't use that to set a recording.
The only way to set recordings now is manually.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: TBox registration

Thanks for your speedy response. I was hoping I could, as I had 2 Tboxes and the one I was using stopped working so I setup the other one, but could not register it. Oh, well I will have to look at buying another device for recording. Any suggestions that would not cost too much?.

Re: TBox registration

My TBox is not recording manually either it was work on Wed 27th but stopped and when reset it just comes up with a error message "timesifting and dvr is not enabled. I rang testea and they said contact crowd support. Can you help or is it over. Can I use my Telstra foxtel box to record free to air TV and or can I hook a free to air aireal up to a Telstra foxtel box?

Hi Wokie

 

If recording is failing when you are hitting record on a currently watched program you could try rebooting the T-Box on bottom of the box - reset tab - hold for 1 second.
If no change try a soft reset by holding the reset tab for 5 seconds. You wont lose any data, just have to run through the setup sequence again.
Or if you have access to the T-box menu system - try doing the reset settings option with menu on remote -> settings -> T-box information -> reset options -> reset settings.
