Mark: There is an issue with Goodmans GDB3 models whereby they will not receive post-switchover signals that have a negative offset on their UHF channel number. This is the subject of a Digital UK bulletin:

http://www.digitaluk.co.u….pdf


Post-switchover, one out of six of Crystal Palace's multiplexes have a negative offset and it is the one which carries ITV4, Film 4, Yesterday and others.

It is on UHF channel 28-, thus it has a negative offset. UHF channel 28 is at a frequency of 530.0MHz whereas 28- is a little bit lower, it being at 529.8MHz. The negative offset therefore means that it is a frequency slightly lower than the "centre" of the channel, but above a positive offset of the channel below.


There are some unofficial firmware upgrades for some Vestel boxes (of which this is one) and I'm not sure if one may be suitable for the GDB3. The process requires connection of the box to a computer via a RS232 (serial) connection. This may fix the problem, but if you do it, then you take the chance that it might never work again.

Mark: Put something like ?> or ?> into Google.

I read that the firmware for GDB2 is NOT compatible with GDB3 and vice versa.

As I say, upgrade at your own risk.

Mark: The information you have been given is quite correct as its a well known about issue concerning these Goodman's boxes, and any owners of this model of box who do not find it necessary to complain is simply because that they reside in an area where the Freeview transmitters they are receiving their signals from do not have any negative offsets on their operating frequencies. This is the original link / http://www.digitaluk.co.u….pdf

Thank you both for your help.
I think it is easiest to just buy a new box.
Any other models to avoid/recommendations?

Mark.A good quality Freeview+ HD box such as a Humax HDR-Fox T2/1TB is one to be recommended as such !
Avoid all Technika and inferior supermarket branded boxes as such !

Mark: And just addition to the top class device that Mark Fletcher has mentioned and which admittedly is in a higher price bracket, although you do get what you pay for! however should you not at the present time wish to stretch to that level below is a link to the company concerned (Humax) where you will not only see the model mentioned, but a standard Freeview HD box with the same reliable receiver circuitry as is used in all the Humax ranges including the more comprehensive PVR's.

It has to be appreciated that all digital devices can play up now and again, but not only are Humax models less prone to the types of problems that others can suffer from, but the company provides excellent back up facilities for their ranges in the form of frequent OA (over air) downloads, these being for the purpose of keeping their devices up to date with the latest software.

Thanks Mark,
Have bought a Bush freeview digital tv recorder earlier today.
Can now get ITV4, but only when I am touching it!
Infact some channels are fine, but on others the reception breaks up unless I touch it.
I think it might be an earthing thing.
Any ideas anyone?

Mark: That is something that generally happens when using an indoor aerial, or if an outdoor type the coax used from the aerial being of poor quality with minimum screening whereby the cable reacts to capacity changes caused by anything coming near to it.

Because of your proximity to the transmitter you don't really want anything elaborate or you could overload the new boxes tuner resulting in signal blocking, so maybe you could advise regarding what type of aerial system you are using.

By the way is your new box a Bush B320HD?
