However, the wireless transition to my Fetch TV box results in a TV screen with 'no signal' - I presume this is a Fetch problem rather than an internet problem. Communicating with Optus has not generated any useful advice on how to fix the problem. Up to today it has worked well for 24 months. I've done the standard things of disconnecting everything and rebooting but it hasn't fixed the problem. Solved: Go to Solution. When you say you have rebooted the Fetch box did you perform a reset, either soft or hard as per these instructions.
Yes you can access your activation code from my account or from the fetch box. Can't remember the menu but if you go to manage you should find it. The Optus shop can't help, support number is inaccessible and live chat has died. It seem also that the only service optus supports is mobiles. We need fixed phones to work too.
Have services returned to normal for you? Thanks for reply. ADSL now delivering 5. Would it be worth buying more filters? I already have three older ones in the other outlets. It could be an issue with the lead in cables, joint, internal wiring, phone socket itself, cracked filter - the list goes on. Have you tried any of the other sockets within the home if they're wired?
Thanks for your thoughts. I had read that the cordless set could suffer from crackling emanating from the ADSL signal so I removed it entirely and found that I could then get a faint dial tone without the noise.
That's the situation at the moment. I hope this represents a solution! Turn on suggestions. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.I have or had a Fetch box, likely the Mighty, which is coming up to 2 years old.
It was on firmware Daintree 2. I ran the channel scan and it picked up the first 11 channels and promptly hard rebooted the unit. Once it booted I was left with only the SBS channels as it had only read the first part of the scan up until when it rebooted. I tested both systems on a second TV, through a secondary aerial socket and ethernet via a powerline unit, again with no success. I cannot do the full channel scan. I am worried that when I call the call centre again I am going to be issued yet another replacement and be told that I am just unlucky as I was the second time around.
Hi Von, I have the same problem with my two year old fetch box. I contacted the Fetch Technical Team directly and found them very helpful, we didn't fix it but found a good work around. First do a channel scan with no aerial connected in my case the scan completed - no channels found of course. Reconnect the aerial do another scan and note exactly which count it crashes on in my case it was the ninth channel found. Then start a scan and unplug the aerial just before the crash point and reconnect it quickly, the aim is to miss the channel causing the problem.
This will take some practice but on the tenth go I obtained all channels except the WIN network suite. So for me the box is usable. I believe the problem is caused by the TV channels opting for new compression systems requiring different codecs in the receiver it looks like WIN here in Hobart is my problem area.
The Fetch team have referred this to their programming guys and a futire update may have a fix. Will I be game to do another channel scan - I dont think so. I hope this may help someone else with the same problem. Thanks mate, appreciate the heads-up.
Am in Hobart too so maybe not just me having issues. Will try Fetch Support as I got zero from Optus aside from the generic 'reset your system' and sending me additional boxes, twice. If you're ever needing assistance with your Yes TV by Fetch, or are facing any difficulties, I'd advise taking a minute to complete a Fault Report.
I'm still having the same issues, opened port forwarding to allow Fetch to inspect box but nothing further Hi Bucas You should look at my post on a way to fool the Fetch Box by removng and repalceing the antenna at the right times.

Thanks in advance. All forum topics Previous Next.Update : Fetch TV now supports the reality and lifestyle streaming service Hayu. Find out more in our updated review below. The options for pay TV in Australia have always been somewhat limited. But the problem with both Foxtel and Austar is that historically neither of their PVR recording options offer a lot of support for the free-to-air channels that make up a significant percentage of most Australians' viewing habits although Foxtel is trying to change that with the iQ3.
Well, that and the fact that they are both relatively pricey for even the most basic starting package. They also require installation, either through HFC cable or by the installation of a satellite dish. Fetch TV is a completely different approach.
Fetch TV review
Instead of basing the service around pay TV, the Fetch box is first and foremost a traditional PVR for free-to-air television. Inside there is a 1TB hard drive, plus three terrestrial tuners for recording two channels and watching a third simultaneously.
But where Fetch really shines is by the addition of a properly integrated IP entertainment service. This takes the form of a pay TV subscription service that includes a heap of channels at a pretty decent price more on this laterplus the ability to rent movies directly from the box. Even better is the fact that you can also stream Netflix and Stan directly from the Fetch box, meaning that all of Australia's major streaming services are represented. Presto was available on the Fetch TV, however the Australia streaming service is no more, having officially been shuttered as of December If reality television and lifestyle programming is more your cup of tea, the Fetch TV box now offers the ability to stream the Hayu streaming service, giving customers more Kardashian antics than they can possibly handle.
No, that isn't a dare. And, as ofa few new channels have made their way into the Fetch TV's arsenal. If kid-friendly fare is not your bag, you can catch up on all the latest news on the CNN International app, which was added to Fetch TV's lineup in October The rollout of Fetch has so far been fairly subdued.
The company initially partnered with ISPs like iiNet and Optus to offer the box and the service, allowing the telcos to offer unmetered streaming for the entertainment services, while making it an appealing value add for bundled broadband services.
This finally changed in late though, with Fetch TV launching a version of the box direct to retail. While this means that Fetch TV is opening itself up to mass market adoption, you'll need to ensure you have a robust internet data plan to stream the content. Also worth noting is that anyone buying the box outright doesn't get any unmetered content, even if they are an iiNet or Optus customer.
Measuring in at x x 50mm and with no obviously visible buttons on the front of the boxy design, the Fetch TV isn't an eye-catching device that will form the visual centrepiece of your home entertainment setup.
In fact, the entire device is designed to vent heat out, and thanks to an external power supply, it doesn't get too hot in the first place. Obviously this type of minimalistic industrial design is somewhat subjective, but I can say that the box does appear to be a little bit lost in a traditional component slot of home entertainment furniture.
That said, it's so small you might be able to whack it on top of another device and save yourself a slot.Joinsubscribers and get a daily digest of news, geek trivia, and our feature articles.

Want to turn that old monitor with integrated speakers into a cheap little video box with a Chromecast? Want to record your video game sessions or stream them live? Console makers have gotten better about recognizing that players want to record and stream their content, but HDCP is still problematic. The Sony Playstation lineup is a perfect example of this problem. Their only advice is to buy a capture device that supports component cables and use those instead of HDMI.

How to Troubleshoot HDMI Connection Problems
Hi chris I have two separate remotes. It would all have to do with your current set up. One of my Fetch Mighty's has a critical hard disk error - I think due to a local power spike - but is out of warranty by 6 months. Fetch have absolutely no repair facility or service agents. I presume I could get a good hdd out of one of my working units and copy it. Has anyone ever successfully cloned the Fetch hdd and installed it to resolve an issue like this?
How can i get the next video to play automatically when I am in MyHub? I have multiple videos in the folder but it just plays one and stops; how can i get it to automatically play all the videos one after the other? Can I take my fetch box to my mum's when I stay there.
I do not see any reason why not. Test it out and report back. Can I watch the 5pm version of the news at 6pm on the same day or do I need to wait longer such as the next day? Thanks TriciaV. Maybe let me say it another way. If I go to watch some news how do I watch the most recent version but not live so no ads.
Eg if I sit down in front of Tv at 6pm and want to watch 5pm edition of news so I can skip ads. How do I do that. I have not used fetch before so I need to be stepped through it. Sounds like you need to read the manual. Short version :- 1. The Fetch has the ability to record shows. Press TV guide and select the relevant show then press the red R record to record your 5pm news.
At 6pm playback the pre-recorded news. PS: my info is based on my current unit and remote. Your may have an older model with different controls.
If so you will need to check the manual that applies to your unit. Are the movies running later than scheduled? These units are very temperamental and ,like PCs, require restarting. Try it out first, then either contact your service provider if applicable or Fetch directly if it persists.I've been trying to connect Optus Fetch TV to the lifestyleI have used a number of the options available but all I get is sound no picture. I have used cable, sattleite and numerous more.
I have 2 other sources connected Blue ray recorders that dont have the same problem. We want to start with making sure the issue isn't with the source device itself. If you do get a picture when connecting directly to the TV, let's reconnect it back to the Lifestyle and try the following steps:. To reset the source, disconnect the source power cord and wait 30 seconds.
Then reconnect the power cord. This may correct minor problems with the source device Note: It is possible some settings may be lost or take some time to return after a reset.
Check the condition of the cable and connectors. The video cable may be defective. If there is any damage to the connectors or cable, the cable should be replaced.
