What does the manual advise?

The Humax Foxsat box has two operating modes: one gives you all the Freesat channels complete with the 8-day EPG, while the other gives you all the non-Freesat channels and no EPG. The non-Freesat channels start at 5001.

I think you may have accidentally switched your STB to non-Freesat mode.

Try selecting Menu, then Settings and look at the bottom item (STB Mode) in the Settings menu; I suspect that yours will say Non-Freesat. You can change it to Freesat by pressing OK, followed by 2 x EXIT.

Hope this helps.
