That's because your video is not incompatible with HUMAX 4000T. You can convert your video to HUMAX 4000T supported video like H.264 MP4 with Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate.

Humax FVP -4000T box worked fine at first. Now picture fragments, freezes sound continues. TV works fine not connected to box. Only 6 weeks old.

As it is so new, your best option is a replacement from Humax. This is assuming that you are sure that the signal to the unit is OK.

Humax 4000t when set on demand category's come up with Dec date been told to change date by Manuel but can't find how can anyone help.

Your best option is probably a factory reset. This will not affect recordings, but you will need to reset your timers, so make a note of them first.
