      ITV HD Playback Freezes

      Hi, I have noticed that whenever I record anything on ITV HD, recently xfactor, and play it back, it often will freeze and I have to cancel out and go back into it for it to play. Im not recording anything else at the same and thought it must be my equipment but a few mates have also experienced the same problems.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks

      Same here.

      PIN required on daytime records - blue screen on playback - freezing on playback.

      Always on ITV1HD recordings.

      When I had the problem blue screen, it didn't ask for a PIN, so it's nothing to do with the PIN. See the following threads over on AV Forums:

      Some ITV1HD programmes are also appearing twice for future recordings in my planner.

      I phoned up itv this afternoon to ask why itv hd won't play back (blue screen) as reported by others on here and on AV Forums. They said phone sky so I did. I went through some pointless procedures and it still happened. I demonstrated that it doesn't happen on the other 4 HD channels I can receive on my sub. Sky are going to call me back, and have offered me half price sky talk line rental for 6 months as compensation for the inconvenience.

      Sky called me back the same day and said the blue screen problem when playing back recordings from ITV1 HD is a known issue.
      This seems to have been fixed as of today.

      Would that be "fixed" for new recordings or for programmes already recorded as well, because I have only just discovered that my recording of Downton Hall, episode 2, made last Sunday won't play. But the repeat of episode 1 recorded that afternoon played OK.

      New recordings. There is always ITV Player though for anything you may have missed prior to the fix.

      Thanks. I'll keep fingers x'd.

      Actually, just noticed episode 2 of Downton to be repeated next Sunday afternoon.
