Hello
I have a wisi or03s fransat box, and sometimes when I change the channel, it restarts completely (displaying code l507) and turns on displaying the channel I tried to switch from, then works after that for a while, then starts doing it again (it is very rare but very annoying). I sent it back to the shop I got it from (TPS) and they sent a replacement, which did the same thing. I then sent it again to be repaired (I thought it was the viaccess card because I kept the one from the old box) but they found no problems, saying it was fine. I turned it on thinking they had fixed it, and the moment I changed channel it did it again! Do you think it something to do with my tv setup? I have the SCART cable connected to the 'tv in' on my sky box, which then connects to the tv via the 'tv out' slot, so I can watch both french tv and sky without changing the scart lead (recommended by TPS), or do you think it is another problem (ie firmware or capacitator)?
Please help me!

I've noticed with my Openbox that when I make a cabling error, ie the shield comes into contact with the copper core, the box restarts itself and/or refuses to turn back on until I unplug the cable and resolve the problem. Presumably it is protecting itself against my idiocy.
