Re: Tbox

No, you can't register it as none of the systems associated with the TBox exist anymore.

 

From memory, the TBox should be able to pick up the basic EPG (TV Guide) from the FTA broadcast, you can't use it to program the TBox to record or give reminders though.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: Tbox

Hi jupiter,

Thanks for your reply, the Tbox I bought was a brand new one, I got it off ebay it fired up ok as I said, however the power supply that came with it packed up after 30 min ( I checked output with a meter- nothing ) my old power supply works fine, but now the unit is bilking as it was not put into sleep mode before powering off no amount of reset fixes the problem, do you know how to fix of if I can get a software update that might fix the problem.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Tbox

The power supply may have fried the motherboard when it packed it in.

If that's the case then there is no recovering from that.

 

Loss of power wouldn't normally cause that type of response from the unit.

Our T-Box still gives a detailed EPG and we can still set reminders and programme it to record. It occasionally and seemingly randomly still even performs the Series Record function.

@abthomp Probably didn't get the last firmware push. But not sure how it can get a detailed EPG as those servers went offline?
