    The 250 is hooked up to an ancient 40 inch plasma but watching 720p True Detective on it you'd think you were watching a 2016 4K OLED monster, it is a seriously good media player even by current standards, better than my Smart Samsung even though its a few years older.

    Any way to "Press the Red Button" on the Ariva 250? For the times when things like the snooker is coming to an end and they say press the red button to keep watching?

    No but if you scan the active transponder (tuning guide may have this info) you can bring up the channel

    If someone tells me the latest patched version that is stable on the Ariva 250's I'll do up a channel list with the various fav categories including a red button (given the frequencies are known for the 7) one.

    Users can then just add their Irish channels to the top of the channel list.

    Is that the STB I know?

    BBC RB1 10773 H 22000 DVB-S

    BBC RB 2-7
    12422 H 23000 DVB-S named 6802 - 6806 and 6811.

    You can always rename them to bbc rb 2 etc.

    These are the ones for the Euros/Wimbledon/Olympics.

    Hi,
    Sorry to resurrect this.....but was wondering has the patch for CCCAM and/or NEWCAMS!?

    By the way, updating the firm with the patch loses you all channels?

    Thanks.

    The ferguson website has all the official firmware versions for each box. If its patched firmware you want, then Google is your friend.

    ... Hi Greendragon 3. You posted some time ago about zetor restoration. Looking for a bit of info please. I pm'd you but you may not have seen it and the old zetor thread is probably long dead.. Thanks


  • Registered Users Posts: 372 ✭✭blondeonblonde


    Hoping someone can help with this box. I'm at my wits end with it trying to schedule a recording. Has anyone else had issues with this?

    Using the guide I navigate to the programme i want, press green timer button. This brings up the record menu. Next I change timer service to record, change offset so it begins and ends 5 minutes later and then press save.

    BUT it seems no matter what options I select, it always brings up the error invalid input!Continue to edit?

    I can see by the times that nothing is invalid so.I just don't get what's wrong. Anyone else experience this? This has been the case since day one with the box.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,927 ✭✭✭✭Thargor


    Is the time set right on the box?

    Yep, the time is correct


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,927 ✭✭✭✭Thargor


    The only time I think I ever saw that was when it was clashing with some other timer setting, theres an option in one of the menus to bring up a list of all currently set timer events, can you see if you can find that and delete everything on it and try again?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 5,515 Mod ✭✭✭✭Nowso


    Yep, the time is correct


    are you on the newest _1.31B2_patch

    Can anyone help with this issue?

    I have an elderly relative who pressed a few wrong buttons on the remote of this box, and now it won't change channel. I have tried all the guides online to get the STB button to work, but it seems to be trying to change over on the TV instead of the remote (also not working - but not required).

    Any idea how to get the remote to control the box again. Tried taking out the batteries, resetting the remote and various sequences recommend in other threads, I know the remote is working because the power light flashes when I press buttons.

    Thanks

    Thanks Tony, I stared at the button for hours, never thought of pressing it. Yes, first thing I tried LOL


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,327 ✭✭✭✭Tony


    No worries, a lot of people have been caught out on this . Its not the most logical designation , SAT would be a better option.

    Thanks anyway, I just saw STB and 'assumed set top box'. Looks like a new box then! Or universal remote!

    Actually satellite . ie have them so I'm going to order her a replacement and hope it works


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,327 ✭✭✭✭Tony


    Cool, you can also use the ariva 153 remote which is a lot simpler as it does not have the universal functions.

    Hi,

    I've got an issue very similar to the above. Erderly relative who has two Arriva 250 boxes. She says niether remote control is functioning or causing any repsonse from either TV or the box. Batteries have been replaced.

    I can't believe that either remote control is broken - as like most elderly people she is quite careful with these things.

    I'm thinking that if her observations are correct that it has somehow lost sync with the box - is this possible and if so how do you correct it?

    Alternatively, what could be the cause for this - I don't want to sheel out for additional remote controls if she doesn't need them.
    She is currently changing the channel using the manual controls on from of the box.


    Thanks.

    Could it be as simple as just needing to press the "stb" button at the top right of the remote?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,676 ✭✭✭zg3409


    I replaced the supplied remote with a universal learning remote bought off ebay. I programmed it so the power button works the TV and volume is TV while channel up down is the ferguson box. It works great and far less support issues. I went for the Universal remote control Seki Slim, it has only 6 buttons and takes ordinary batteries. Setting it up is not too hard

    Yes! :pac:

    She was a bit miffed when I turned up at her house today and both of them worked without a problem!

    Saved her nearly £30 for another 'non-working' remote!!!

    Does anyone have a TV that works with HDMI CEC to turn the TV on and off? I bought my old dear an arriva 253 and it still confuses her that the TV and Box need to be turned on separately. CEC from her Samsung TV only turns the box off, not on again. Am prepared to replace the telly with one that actually works.
