                            "Disappearing" Channels on Vestel PVRs

           (Goodmans, Grundig, Digihome, Hitachi, Sharp, Onn, Wharfdale etc).

If you own a Vestel T810 or T816 based PVR, (Goodmans, Grundig, Hitachi, Sharp
Digihome, etc.), you may be finding that channels are disappearing from your channel list
overnight or after powering off/on at the mains. Exactly which channels disappear is
dependent on your local TV transmitter. Basically, these boxes are currently limited to a
maximum of 100 channels and as of 03/02/12 there appears to be at least 110 on the Freeview

The recommended solution for avoiding this is to perform an automatic channel scan and
immediately manually delete any unwanted channels from the channel list, so that you have
100 channels or less. T816 owners should also ensure that the "Scan encrypted" option in the
setup configuration menu is set to "No" which will ensure that most of the channels that
cannot be viewed on non-Top-up TV boxes anyway will not be added to your channel list.

It is suggested that the following channels be removed if they appear in your list

Chs 307, 309, 310, & 311:- Top Up TV 1, 3, 5 & 6.      (4 Channels)

Chs 113, 114 & 115:- Connect 1,2 & 3.                         (3 Channels)                           

Chs  189, 193, 194, 199:- Adult Section.                       (4 Channels)

Chs  92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98 & 99:- Adult Section     (8 Channels)

Chs 102, 103 & 104:- Dating Channels                         (3 Channels)

Chs 34, 41 & 42 :- Subscription Sports Channels          (3 Channels)

Removing all of these TV channels will reduce the list by 25 and should leave 85 channels
remaining which is well under the 100 limitation
