    Getting hundreds of the following line in my tvlog log file:

    TmkMediaswitch::Trace[144]: Lost VBI lock

    I have checked out the links that appeared when I started searching (cool feature btw) and one seems to be the exact same as mine which links to something in the archive from 2002:

    Archived lost VBI lock post

    This seems to think it might have something to do with teletext. I know there is something to do with a teletext fix as tivocentral and tivoland I think both mention you have to request different image or something if you buy a new hdd from them.

    So questions are, anyone know anything more about this since 2002/2007 threads on it?

    how do I know if I am using the teletxt fix thing or whatever it is? from memory pretty convinced I am not but this unit has been in operation continuously pretty much for 8+ years.

    Finally do I need the teletext fix and if so what is it?

    Any help would be appreciated even if it's just some idea of what or where to search for further info.

    If the only problem is the log file, then just forget about it.
