jan: Does your Freesat box connect via wifi or does it have an ethernet cable plugged in to the back?

My location is Yeovil.

I have recently lost all BBC stations being broadcast on Medip Channel 32.

I have tried a manual tune of Channel 32 with no joy. This morning signal strength was 68% with quality at 100%.

I had previously tried a factory resent of my Humax set-top box.

This morning I tried the procedure to clear my box but still have no BBC channels.

From the box start menu, I can load I-player but from that front screen any programme selected will not select. The buffer' wheel rotates but after a short period I get the problem screen.

Any ideas and suggestion would be very welcome.

All other Mendip Channels appear to be functioning correctly. It is only channel 32 that is not functioning

bruce tearle:

Bearing in mind my response to you on the Mendip page and your previous issues, I think it's time to consider if you have a problem with your aerial installation (including downlead) or any flyleads you may have between your aerial wall socket, TV and Humax box. If you have several flyleads try checking them/swapping them to see what differences there may be. Breaks in connection (usually at the back of the plug) will NOT necessarily affect reception of ALL multiplexes, it can affect only one or two (this is due to something called standing waves in the cable due to an impedance mismatch as a result of any bad connection).

Maybe I might be correct in assuming it might not be a TV but a monitor in which case you need to also consider an issue with the box itself (similar to that which you had before?).

If it's a TV rather than monitor, it might be a good idea to try and check, in the tuning sections, the signal strength and quality for each multiplex with the aerial direct to the TV as well as direct to the Humax. You could maybe see any differences which would perhaps indicate a problem with the aerial installation or the Humax.
It could be a process of elimination.

Otherwise, visit Humax | No.1 subscription-free set-top box brand in the UK to see if there is any known problems for your model. You could also try several Humax forums if it looks like an issue with the box itself -
