7-Day EPG Crashes on Sony KD-32DX40U
In message , Paul
As a software writer, I can tell you that a receiver should be tolerent of
any old crud being received. What did you need to do to restore the TV
after the "crash"? Did you need to retune etc. etc. or was it just that it
gave up trying to display the EPG?
Mine's a Sony KD32NX100U and suffered a similar problem. Using the OK
button to bring up the channel list (channel name and current program
title) was okay. Using up and down scroll buttons worked fine too. Press
the Info button and the full EPG layout appeared but blank (no text).
The layout was correct, top-left box for current program description,
top-right for small picture area, bottom half showing about 6 channel
lines. The small picture displayed but the text areas stayed blank for
about 5 seconds. Then the screen went grey, then stripy, then blue.
After a further few seconds the original picture returned full screen
and the EPG was gone. I tried this several times on two evenings last
week. By the weekend it had returned to now&next and was working okay
again. The fault looked like a reset or reboot condition to me. Hope
