Twinham dvb

I have purchased a Twinham Magicbox DVB. I have installed it in accordance with the instructions and all channels appear on the list. The preview channels only shows about three channels. When I click on a channel I get a message saying"Timed out. Try again later". The quality of my reception is 80% and the frequency is 60%. Why can't I view any channels?

Preview channels only show the channels being transmitted on each MUX.

Yes I know, whether you click on the preview channels or on the list of the 33 channels I get the same result.

You should get a lot more than 30+ channels.

Make sure that if you make any changes in the TwinHan software you click on Apply first and then OK - it can make all the difference.

TwinHan's software is usually excellent - I had the TwinHan Freeview DTV-ter card for about nine months before switching to the D+A version - and it brought in all 80 Winter Hill TV and radio channels (now even more in number).

I've tried it this way and everyway possible but I still cannot view any channels. I get the radio channels also but again they don't play. I've tried emailing Twinhams but they are very slow to respond.

Thanks, I have already looked at this but it doesn't solve my problem.

I see the MagicBox uses BDA drivers like mine. Have you downloaded the latest BDA drivers from the website?

The only other thing I can suggest is that you try ShowShifter along with the new drivers; I found it better speed wise than PowerCinema, which is what I have to suffer with my card...:-(((

May is in sales, but seems to know her stuff and responds very quickly.

Sorry, I'd assumed earlier that the MagicBox used the DTV 2.43 and upwards software.

Thanks,I have just shot off an email to her.
