A recent Freesat software update has caused some problems for the owners of Bush, Grundig and Goodmans Freesat set top boxes. The three set top boxes come under the Harvard International brand.

You might try pulling the plug and leaving it of for a couple of minutes, if that fails then try leaving it of for 1/2 an hour or so, failing that leave it unplugged for a night. I know that there had been a bit of trouble with the non Humax boxes at the start, but thought they had all been sorted out. Hope you get it sorted out soon mate. Please remember that the box must be unplugged from the wall socket and not just turned of at the switch.

Thanks for your reply. Yes have tried all of the above but with no joy. The box was unplugged for a few months due to moving house and when i reconnected it had the problem i mentioned

Well we can rule out the IR sensor as it will not turn on from the box, so it i not just the remote which is having the problem. Just had a quick google and have not found anything like your problem mate. Did you try phoning Bush and having a word, might help?

NP just wish could have been of more help and that you had got it sorted. The Humax is the pick of the freesat receivers, never had any trouble with mine.
