This has been a problem for well over 2 years now.
Why isn't anyone closer to a resolution to it?
.... and still Ch 7 locks up.
This is totally unbelievable!

Wow, the memories...
The Wintal/Supernet Digenius-clone PVRs are essentially obsolete. As far as Wintal goes, Radio Parts Group *never* supplied any support at all for them, and refused to even fund firmware fixes.
The Channel 7 lockup bug was fixable with a firmware update from Grobi, a German company that also sold Digenius-clone PVRs. However this update caused problems of its own with Channel 10. Grobi's many subsequent firmware updates were German-language only, presumably to stop Australian users from nicking them
Sadly, despite the Digenius clone being a really nice, lean and fast SD PVR, it's been consigned to the dustbin of history in Australia.
Of interest, by the way: Channel 7 is also causing problems with the Beyonwiz series of PVRs. Under certain conditions, the 7Sd and 7HD streams can throw the Sigma Designs decoder in these PVRs into a tailspin, rendering every other channel AND recordings unwatchable until either the PVR is rebooted or an MPEG video file is played over the network.
