      Thing is you can't choose which input its using for recordings. With the box not recording, whats the signal strength reading?
      There is no p in Thomson.

      This is perfectly normal with the HD Boxes and one feed. By default they use Feed 1 for the EPG data and Feed 2 for viewing (these switch around during normal use). In order to make it work correctly you would need to enable single feed mode:
      Servies - 0 - 0 - 1 - SELECT (Ignore onscreen until sequence has been pushed on remote)
      Press Down
      Scroll down to single feed mode and change it to "ON"
      Press green to save settings.
