"You could try removing the power from the set at the wall socket for 30 secs or so then plugging in and turning on again (cold reboot). It quite often works wonders but not guaranteed."

"Seems logical. Freeview states that a UHF (or Sat Dish) must be connected for  FOD to work. Therefore it seems logical to me that the TV must be switched to a live channel to use FOD so that FOD can achieve the necessary interaction with the…"

"No. TV will be fine. Same age as my Sony which is still going well. The only thing that's changed with Freeview transmissions since 2007 is the addition of 5.1 sound on some channels and a few more in HD so no need for your STB unless you want…"

Oops sorry.

I couldn't do an autotune on the T2200 cos I had no service! Anyway I just whizzed out and bought an HDMI lead and it worked. The guy at Noel Leeming told me none of the FreeviewPlus-approved recorders come with HDMI cables, which is a bit rich when they sell for $400 upwards. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Biggles. So why does the Aerial Box come with AV leads and no HDMI cable?
