my picture quality is good apart the it jumping and pixilating every 4 mins, any ideas please
What box are you using? Which image? What skin? What USB/HDD size etc using? Sat or cable? Wired or wifi?
Is it doing it on free channels like BBC1?
Assuming I need to reboot it regularly
Well there you go then. No need to answer those pesky questions.
maybe i should have said i didnt know that, i emailed my supplier but last email he ignored thats why i asked on here, but this time he came back with the answer,
And the answer was?

its people like you that make people like me, not want to ask questions on here, maybe simple to to you but not to me
Its only a joke, not need to be upset. :dance:
whaty box are you using? do you use Ethernet cables or wifi dongle to connect? does the freeview channels do it?
If rebooting regularly doesn't fix your problem, we'll be here.
As above, check if it's happening on BBC (or any FTA one)
If it is then it's problem on box/leads/dish
If it's only on other channels then it's your supplier or config set up - shouldn't have to constantly reboot
We have all been at the newbie stage at some point. But when you state that there is a problem but give no particulars of what they are or what it is on. It does make it a tad difficult to give you an answer.
It shouldn't need rebooting regularly, I guess you will be back soon enough to
answer the questions in post #2 and #3 to find out if it's a problem with the line
or the internet or the tuner on your box
Hi guys, I'll just jump in here... I having this sort of problem on my box atm. It's only happens maybe once every few hours and it seems to be happening on both freeview/satellite channels. I would get the freezing/pixelated screen and sometimes the NO SIGNAL message. I'm using a skybox F5s (about 3yr old)with an Ethernet cable. I have tried rebooting when it does it but still seems to happen after a while. And help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Go easy on me I'm a newbie :bye:and never really done anything with my box bar the odd channel list update.
If you are on the same Broadband as the channels you are watching it does appear that you need to change your security settings on the router. But I have noticed a lot of the big providers the security settings do have to be tweaked as well.
Might be the other equipment causing that i.e. dish, LNB, cabling, could even be a dodgy tuner.
Thank for the replys guys. I currently have Sky broadband, so do u reckon there is anything I can change on my router to see if this helps. Also is there anything I can do which is easy enough regarding my equipment like my LNB or dish to see if this was to help. I have a feeling it mite be to do with my equipment as when the weather is bad outside I get the picture jumping and freezing sometimes too.
Turn off sky shield in your broadband settings. As for checking your equipment, just have a look at signal levels in signal finder under service searching.
