TechniSat HDFS EPG Issue Fix Underway

TechniSat have confirmed a fix for the HDFS EPG issue is underway. The fault appeared a few weeks ago which prevents you accessing programme information more than 12 hours ahead, where as the standard Freesat EPG should allow you 8 days listings.

TechniSat have confirmed that they have located and solved the issue and the revised software will be tested week commencing 31st October 2011. Providing all goes well, they will be released shortly after via their website and presumably by over-the-air download too.

Good to see manufacturers still supporting existing products.

    This seemed to have rectified itself a while back but has reared its ugly head again in the last few weeks. It’s getting ridiculous at this stage which is a pity as this is such a fab receiver in all other respects and I would expect better from a German company.
    Any thoughts admin? It’s gone beyond a joke at this stage!

    Are you using the latest software I have that was never officially released? Resolves the EPG problem. Please contact me if you want it.

  2. Yes I would love that. Can u mail it to me or provide a link where I can download it. It seems rather bizarre that it has not been released.

  5. todate 21/05/2012 my box is still losing programme informatio regularly at the most i get a few hours info when i run the software up date it says it is update.
    have reset to factory default then search channels it sometimes bring it back but not for long have to do this to get the radio channels also.
    when i tried to contact technisat support my e-mails come back undelivered.

  6. Hmm, my HDFS seems to be OK – you just have to leave it on for a while & it will get all the epg. Radio channels seem stable now. For what it is and for the price, it’s still a good box – the HD is great and the PVR function for free is good (have a 16 GB SD card in now). The iPlayer stuff is also good and works fine but there’s no radio catch up . . . is this the BBC or Freesat?
    There have been times when I wanted to chop it up into little pieces but as I say, it’s working fine at the moment.

    Could you please email it to me/send me a link too please?

  8. EPG seems a lot better now and all the Lympix channels are fine
    Even managed to recordthe 3D ch.
    I hva e a problem in that a new Hitachi 1TB HDD doesn’t seem to work on this box as a PVR when set to timed recording – it briefly powers up then shuts down! My other HDD (WD 500MB) worked fine. Is this a problem with Hitachi drives? Is there a fix??
    Cheers

    I would be grateful if you could also email me a copy. The EPG problem makes the box unusable for recording. Thanks.
