Like myself, many others have been reporting that digital antenna tuning crashes, hangs or bombs out. This is a new fault as it all worked perfectly for everyone before about a month ago.
No-one can tune their slingboxes in the UK using the internal freeview tuner.
There must be something new being broadcast ( HD ? ) that slingbox isn't prepared for.
Even though Slingbox may claim the fault is not theirs, they should really produce an update else all UK Slingboxes are useless if the internal tuner is the only video source available ( eg no PVR or satellite boxes ).
Hi Greg240170, I would suggest you the following go ahead and hard reset the Slingbox, then go to Setup.slingbox.com and reconfigure the Slingbox there, when you get to the point of the channel scan go ahead use the option detailed scan.
Make sure that the coaxial cable is properly connected to the Slingbox and the main coaxial source.
There are other threads about this issue.
Hard resetting etc will NOT help.
There is an incompatibility with the way Slingbox scans digital antenna channels, and the current UK settings. ( Since about early December )
There is NOTHING a customer can do ( other than pull out the aerial mid-scan then plug it in after the lingbox is past the multiplex ( "SDN" ) in question )
Either the UK authorities need to say what they have changed and put it back ( for example renaming Fiver as 5* ), or Sling must provide a fix.
Sorry to have to tell you that you cannot expect any reply, help, or even an acknowledgement from any one at the Company regarding this issue, especially on this Forum.
It is a problem that has been spreading with the SlingBox PRO and PRO-HD for almost 2 years. It is a firmware matter a but despite being fundemental to the advertised properties of the boxes, or perhaps because it is, SlingMedia will not discuss it here.
You will see that they reply to many threads on the Forum about other matters, and must have monitored the threads regarding the Freeview Tuner, but have steadfastly ignored it.
In particular look at my last comment, and if you ever hope for the matter to be resolved consider the action I have suggested there.
