My Freeview reception is very good and I do not suffer from pixilation or picture freezing while watching live TV.
However on several recordings I have made I get picture freezing (not pixilation) that takes quite a few seconds (20 ish) to clear. Rewinding and replaying gives the same issue.
As I am deleting recordings after watching I have started to wonder whether there could be an issue with the Youview box's hard drive (i.e. I am recording programmes over the same bad sectors of the disc).
Is this possible?
Are there any hidden disc utilities to check the hard drive?
I've jsut swiched it off at the back and restated and all seems to be fine now. Worth a try!!
