I have exactly the same experience as Deana Alliston. Have gone to 8day as she has but experiencing same symptoms. I have noticed that the TV guide is up to date but when you are watching tv and change channel,the programme info that comes up is lagging behind,ie it is 17.15 but saying it is now showing the mentalist at14.15! This could have something to do with it but I don'know how to fix it....Feeling VERY frustrated and although don't need another monthly bill am toying with the idea of sky as am at my wits end and missing my favourite programmes as I work shifts and can't rely on my box to record them for me anymore. Can anyone help me please?

MikeB: thanks,and to Michael as well. I will think seriously about your suggestions as I want to avoid sky if at all possible. My box was fine up until the evening of Tuesday 12th Nov' when suddenly listings were lost,planned recordings vanished etc. My box is tHomson digital TV recorder250gb and has a Top up TV card slot,although I didn't subscribe. When it went wrong,I rang top up tv and they said they weren't't doing it anymore and to go from 14day setup to 8day,which I did. Things improved slightly but did what I described in original post and as Deana Alliston described in her post. I rang top up tv back and had to go somewhere in menu to change something to pass...still no better. Phoned again and they said it was the box! The box had been fine before, so that is why I thought freeview had gone wrong and contemplated sky.
