Freeview mode change in Scotland, NI and the North

Some older makes of set-top boxes and Personal Video Recorders will no longer work!

Some older makes of set-top boxes and Personal Video Recorders
published on UK Free TV

The SET TOP boxes effected are: Daewoo DS608P, Labgear DTT100, Triax DVB 2000T, Portland DP100 and these VCR/STBs: Daewoo SV900, Bush IDVCR01 (Transmitter changes in STV, Ulster, Tyne Tees and Border regions)








The areas effected are all transmitters in Scotland and Northern Ireland, plus those in the "Border" and "Tyne Tees" areas.



How do I get a replacement?

These manufacturers have helpline numbers:

Daewoo & Portland: 0870 100 2525
Bush: 0871 230 1777

The mode change is from "2k FFT" to "8k FFT" as part of the transmission parameters. This is to assist with digital switchover.

rita; You should carry out a "factory reset" or "default setting" on the box before retuning, although it would have been of assistance to know what model of Humax you are referring to as well as your own location, pref: post code or one from nearby, as the signal levels expected in your area could then be assessed.
