Recorded film / episode is shown in the library as recorded but when you play it all I get is a black screen. This happens one in ten recordings and is always the one that isn't available on catch up! I have re-tuned the box but it hasn't solved the issue - in all other aspects it is first class. What can I do to improve reliability?


Problem with Goodmans GV101YRH32 recorder. Asking for remedy please for very elderly neighbour. Can't get alteration of volume through box. Sound can only be heard by putting ear against TV. Can only be watched with subtitles. Please can anyone help as it did work previously. Many thanks


while programmes are running a voice in the background keeps coming up describing what's going on, I may have pressed a button to make this happen...it's just knowing which one.

Since the freeview update 3/9/14 my remote does not connect with the box - tried turning all power off and on with no result - please helphelp


display lights stopped working also buttons on unit do not work


Goodmans GV101YRH50 .. when I set the device to record a program, it highlights this in the " Library 2 but also adds another line as " Scheduled " so this tkes up both Tuners or something, because if I try and program another recording it fails. VERY ANNOYING - anyone know a fix please ?


hi i have forgotten my pin tried 0000, 40000 and 2112 recommended by help desk all to no avail any clues


Hi, I've bought a STB GV101YRH50, its asking for a PIN number before a retune, I've tried the generic 0000 and the recommended (By the helpline) 4000, which is the engineers code, but neither work - is there a hard reset?

Problem: The unit has just frozen up. It keeps freezing and then shutting itself down.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: It can be extremely frustrating when this happens. Most of the time, there isn't much you can do other than turn it off and then on again, at the mains if the power button isn't responding.

However, there are a few things you can check to help prevent it in the future. Number one is check how hot it is. Freezing can happen when the unit isn't properly ventilated or is in a hot place. Make sure all the vents are uncovered and there is nothing on top of it.
You might also want to check for system updates.
Finally, you might consider turning the unit off and then on again regularly to reboot it. Freezing often occurs when it has been running for a long time, so once a week or so you could try to reboot it by switching it off and on. If you don't want to do this yourself, you might consider buying a timer switch to do this for you at a time you know you won't be using the machine, e.g. 4AM.

Problem: Recordings keep failing. Sometimes when I record a programme, I get an error message and I lose the recording.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: Recordings fail for a number of reasons. If you schedule the recording and it records - but records the wrong thing - the box might be tuned to two different regions. Reset the channels and manually tune them if you suspect this to be the case.
If the unit is on a series record but has missed the programme, check the programme guide to see if future episodes are being recorded. It may have identified the programme as a different series for some reason, so set a series link on any future episodes that are not being recorded.

Other failed recordings can show a problem with the unit. One or two failed recordings do not necessarily mean that your unit has a fault - it could be due to a power cut or your box could have (unluckily!) frozen or crashed prior to the start of the programme.

However, if there are numerous failed recordings and it continues to occur even though you can watch TV OK, it sounds like a problem with the hard disk and this will need to be either repaired or replaced.
