    Yeah, same for me. Except it didn't do this as recently as a couple of months ago. Luckily I only ever watch timeshifted material & never live tv so it only affects me if I want to quickly record something.

    Assuming you are referring to the Freesat Foxsat (rather than the Freeview Fox T2) that was one of the "improvements" in the recent update. You might want to read this digital spy thread

    Did some testing around the woeful r/c signalling. The remote is more responsive to off axis signals with the front door down but fresh batteries made no difference. However I programmed a couple of keys on a Philips Pronto and that communicates off axis, door up and even pointing in a different direction! It certainly makes the usability a lot better and navigation is now seamless and fast. I intend to try a Harmony One next to see if that improves things and I will create a shortcut key to the EPG (schedule>red button) to by-pass the slow response there. More I play with it the more I am starting to like it.

    The Humax remote eats batteries and after a while the red LED still shines but the box does'nt respond.

    The layout is awful.

    I bought a Logitech Harmony 300i and never looked back. It also controls the TiVo and the TV.

    Harmony One arrived and was quickly set up to control all my equipment using the online configurator. Works very well with the Humax, has an excellent re-charge base station and the layout hints at the TiVo peanut.

    Excellent piece of kit. Had mine two weeks now and have it working with VM Tivo, S1 Tivo, WMC7, Blu-ray,DVD and AV receiver. Got mine for £63 direct from Logitech.

    Took me a little while to get the colour icons to appear for the Red,Green,Blue & Yellow buttons that the remote doesn't have as hard buttons like my old Harmony 655 did.
