During the Freeview digital re-tune some set top boxes stopped working.
The owners of set top boxes made by one manufacturer, Humax, found that their equipment stopped working all together.
The issue was that although Freeview did list all the set top boxes they believed were too old and definitely would not work after the switchover, Humax equipment was not on this list, which has caused much distress to the owners of this equipment.
However, according to Humax, this problem has now been solved and the equipment should now be working fine.
This is great news for the owners of Humax set top boxes, but there are some reports of owners still calling out engineers, so when the problem is finally fixed is still up in the air!
