      Have you tried turning your box off and on again?

      I got the same problem. My picture was the last viewed before pressing the TV Guide. A box reset (power off at wall) did the trick.

      Possibly related to boxes losing signal lock during bad weather yesterday (and today).
      My box refused to switch to BBC3 yesterday evening to record Eastenders (after we lost the BBC1 Eastenders due to rain fade).
      I ended up having to reboot.

      Don't mock me lurgy man! I'm drinking Murphys tonight, you?

      I don't watch Eastenders, but the boss, and the Outlaws (went home this morning!) do watch it, and its my fault when they miss it. A happy boss makes for a quiet life and a happy Proppin.

      I have man flu not lurgy.

      I must confess I do have a nearly full fridge of Stella's in my room at the moment. Depends if I sacrifice my lemslips or not I suppose.

      OH MAN, I'M SO SORRY!

      I didn't realise it was as bad as man flu! I hope you have Mrs NewsreadeR typing your messages for you. That Manflu is serious, women have it easy.
