Machine is two years old - purchased 11/2012, replaced 12/2012 as 1st one was a problem. Do not recall any electrical storms or the like - been plenty of fireworks around (bonfire night Nov 5th) - not noticeable on day problem became more noticeable.
Machine comes on and off in quick succession - not seen a start up logo as its been doing it while other devices are "off" or on standby.
The problem was first noticed as machine kept switching off whilst watching a programme from the PVR - software was updated - seemed OK but next morning it was switching on and off 'at will'
It is of note that lately it has not been recording scheduled programmes and freezing in record mode - its a always done this but recently s somewhat more regularly?
No odour noted - today has stayed on when switched on? When problem started yesterday we also had a problem with central heating and have a wireless programming and thermostat device in the same room? Is it possible that this device has affected PVR. Not done so before but with boiler problem it would have been sending repeated signals to controlling device? Just a thought - doesn't explain previous freezing etc but maybe on and off prob.
Not needed to do this as the player - finger's crossed - is doing OK today - maybe was linked to the wifi signals from the CH controls - nothing else has changed day by day
Thanks for help - regards
