What are the messages on front of box?
What is a Freeview 8000?
Could be something corrupted somewhere. Factory reset might help.
What messages are you getting?
Also check the batteries in the Remote are OK.
I often wonder why people turn their units off. I leave mine such as my Sky Box and Panasonic Recorder running 24/7. All I turn off is the TV. I've never had any problems and don't have to wait for them to boot up.
Yes I read your enquiry. You said it won't turn off so you obviously want to turn it off.
You still haven't said what the messages say.
Without full info it's impossible to try and diagnose a problem.
If you want help then provide full information on the problem.
Otherwise don't bother asking.
I'm not being arrogant, maybe a little sarcastic, but just trying to elucidate more info.
Maybe someone else can help.
P.S. I'll see your 3 Tower PCs and raise you one plus a Media Player.
Good Morning Derek
Thanks for contacting us via Freeview Forum, to start things off on a side note Biggles have been a huge help here on the platform and has played a massive role in aiding viewers to resolutions, however I will leave that conversation between yourselves.
A new manual is due to be released which will explain what the funny LED displays mean, as this has been mentioned a few times in the past, so will get onto that straight away. Have you had a look to see if the satBox S8200 has been updated to the latest version, the latest is the 29th Jan and you can check for updates via Menu > Software Upgrade as we are having no issues with other customers regarding this with this unit.
I will look into this with the team and see if there are any developments or reports not seen by me about the unit.
I hope this helped, regards
