    We have 3 televisions, only 1 is digital/analogue the analogue on all three is bad is it possible something in/on the ariel has been damaged. Would the lightening have damaged all three tuners?

Electrical Storm normally damage Tuner in TV.
Symptoms in tv like poor analog tv signal reception shows replace TV Tuner.

    Yes, lightening is probably cause of damage of Tuners as it carry's very high voltage comes through ariel / antenna. I'm not saying TV directly hit by lightning as if that happened TV wouldn't power up at all and got fried there and then.

Echostar t101 fta digi box retuned and lost bbc1 bbc2 itv and channel 4 all to channels 801 and above any help and advice would be very kind


This is due to NIT in DVB-T transmission

Digital UK estimates that "only 1%" of Freeview receivers are susceptible to this change - technically, the introduction of a multi-part Network Information Table within the digital data.

The effects on some of those STBs and VCRs are plainly malfunctions, such as abnormal channel numbering e.g. Channels may be listed, but they're assigned to all the same number or assorted incorrect numbers. Alternatively, no pictures are seen, despite all channels having high ratings for signal strength.

Do not understand how to set up my alba digi box to my television and recieve basic digital channels help!


Hi.

Ok
1) plug aerial in to the antena in sock on freeview box.
2) plug short aerial type lead in to rf out socket on freeview & antena in socket on TV.
3) plug A scart lead in to the socket marked TV on freeview box & the other end of scart in to one of the scart sockets on the TV.
If your TV has more than one socket plug it into the one marked AV1 or AV2.

4) plug in freeview to mains electricity & switch box on.
5) Turn TV on freeview should appear automatically if it doesnt look on your TV remote for A button marked AV or a button with either A circle or square with an arrow going through it you may need to press this several times until you see digi picture come up.
Thats basically it but do check that you dont need a new aerial etc to be able to get digi signal in your area.

I have lost the normal tv channels on all 3 of my TV's (bbc 1 bbc 2 itv channel 4 through the aerial) but freeview channel are still working on AV. any ideas?


If you have all 3 tv's in the one house and on the one antenna then it sounds like you have been subject to either a lightning strike or a large static discharge onto your antenna. What this means is that the tuner packs in the back of the tv's has been damaged and will need to be replaced. However as you have said in your question they do work using an av input. This will be your cheapest option to get them working again. Buy cheap vcr's for them and connect via av cables, as the tuner modules are expensive to buy and even more so to have fitted.

I have two problems with my DTR220 freeview digital box. Firstly every night at 11pm it stops working and I have to turn on & off the power to get it back. Secondly, The BBC 1, 2,3 channels...


First I would move the box closer to the booster (amplifier) if its furthest away from it. Do you have another box you can swap out in that location to see if the problem is the signal for some reason? I am not familiar with the boxes but, is it possible at 11 PM they are doing guide updates or possible software updates at that time? I know that here in the U.S. our two satelitte companies do guide and software updates but, those usually occur in the early morning hours of 2 AM. Hopefully that helps.

Bought freeview thomson dti6300 and installed. only have 66 of the 88 channels it found. these channels are all bbc ones and itv, c4 and other channels i got with old box. is there an update later on?


hi alot of people have been having this problem when they change boxes it seems that some of them dont have as much good signal as other boxes the best solution would be to buy an arieal booster to boost the signal strength.
Have you tried researching again just to see if it picks them up.

Also if you can get to your arial easily then moving it slghtly can improve the signal but can also make things worse but you can try just remember where it was when you started.
Failing that then an arial booster would be the best option
