Hi Ibrahim,

It's underneath the telly on top of a SkyPlus box. Do you reckon it might be something to do with that box? I don't use Sky any more but the box is still there because there are programmes on its hard drive I want to watch.

Hi Sunil.

I had a similar problem with my TVonics some time ago, what I did was to
remove it from the TV stand where I had a subwoofer and my speakers as the
vibration was playing hell with the hard drive and its worked floorlessly
since then.  Do you have speakers nearby which could be causing magnetic
interference or excessive vibration?

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi,

The speech on my TVonics box has become sluggish to the point where it takes
about 45 minutes for it to announce the channel number, programme and next
programme when I switch channels. So it'll start talking, pause, pick up
again several seconds later, grind to a halt and struggle to the end of the
info.

It's also taking ages for anything to happen when I press the library, menu
and TV guide buttons.

The only thing I've done recently which is anything from the norm, is that I
set it up to record Match of the Day on Sunday. When the programme was about
half way through I switched to it and wound it back and watched from the
beginning while it was still recording.

I can't think why that might have affected it but it's only started playing
up since then.

I only have three pages of programmes stored on the hard drive. One film,
and a few 30 and 60 minutes programmes.

If anyone could suggest what the problem might be and how I can fix it I'd
appreciate it.
