    when new its daunting but after a while it does get easier,one thing you forgot to go on lappy or pc have a folder on desktop think you said miraclebox? inside have a copy of your mg_cfg and newcamd.list.
    when crap happens and you reflash box you have a stored copy to send back to box.

    Might want to edit your post as you're not allowed to mention a provider.

    How can i set up Program recording on H1 box.
    is there a limit to the size of USB stick you can use?

    Any help appreciated.

    Wouldn't use a USB stick over 128GB but there's not really a limit for external hard drives.

    Hi Folks, My bouquets disappeared.

    My channels disappeared I got a message " tuner failed fatal"

    so I did a channel rescan
    and in case
    So I deleted my last bouquet and then done another bouquet and I get a message

    "Tuner Failed fatal"

    Ive never seen this and I'm not use to the mutant 1500 but this is def new to me.

    any ideas.

    Ive thought it might be the usb key so I put in another one and initialised it and the same problem

    are you using autobouquets maker [ abm ] if so rerun the scan.presume you rechecked your feeds cable.
    sat or cable tuners ?

    Thanks for the guide. as far as i can tell it's mostly setup but some channels don't work. I have an Edision OS mini (cable only). when i do a scan am i meant to be using a provider or one of the frequency settings? I have the correct netid setup.

    In tuner configuration type in your net id and symbol rate.

    In providers, select your area, there will be a net id next to the area, both should match.

    Then scan using ABM.

    If you have missing channels you are probably using the wrong net id.

    definitely using the right netid, I got it from one of the other v boxes we have in the house.

    i will try that cheers and make sure thats correct.

    Then make sure in providers the area net id matches the one from your virgin box.

    my area is described as Manchester 3, i'm not in Manchester but that's what matches the correct number if you get me.

    Yeah i have 1 and 2 of my area, my proper box says im in 1 so I've been using that. 95% of channels seem to be working now, just 1 in every say like 10 channels says tune failed. do u happen to know what this might be? I'm scared to mess too much now I've got this far, don't wanna break anything down which isn't faulty.

    Sounds like you have the wrong net id.

    Did you go into the engineers menu on your official box to get the net id ?

    Just delete the scanned channels and put in another net id in both tuner configuration and providers
    and re scan, it is the number on the net id that is important not the area description.
