After scanning the box should save the channel automatically. If the box does not save the preset after scanning channels, then it is probably faulty.
Some box has a pinhole reset button at the back, if you have this reset button keep it pressed with a pencil for 10 seconds to reset the freeview box.
If it does not work, the nbox is probably faulty.

With freeview you only pay for few scrambled channels, the most of them are free and do not need any additional fee.

Freeview is not available in all areas, check that you have freeview in your location, and that aerial is well connected to the box, otherwise not finding channels is normal.

How to tune freeview for digihome PVR80 it wont record bbc how to fine tune it .when we had to re-tune for channel 5 it worked perfect so please tell me how to do that again


On your remote control, press 'menu'.
Then select 'set up' on the screen.
Then select 'Installation' on the screen.
Then select 'Automatic channel scan' on the screen.
The box should then scan for all channels, and with luck BBC will be included. If not, please repost. Some older Digihome PVR80s can't cope with the new multiplexing standard employed by digital freeview.

How do i save my scan on a Bush BTU160DTR freewview please


On some freeview boxes i have found the only way to get it to store a fresh scan is to find in the menu a factory reset,this deletes all stored channels and the saves the new scan(can be called new installation) i hope this helps?

I can get channels 1 to 4 can't get channel 5 and no freeview


Hi, I had the same problem, try removing your aerial from the box - retuning and saving so it blanks out all previous channels and then reattaching the aerial and doing another retune, this worked for me. Good luck.....

On the Library section of the DT16300 I have approx 8.5 hours of saved programmes yet the display says there is only 18% of disc space left! out of 60 hours recording time?.


After Re-loading the Freeview Channels on 30th Sept, the disc space was nearly full on The Thomson DT16300. Go to Set up in the Menu, choose 'Personal Favourites' this will bring up all the stored Channels, For some reason a lot of the Channels are marked 'ON' each one takes up disc space. De-select every one, the channels stay in the recorder but release disc space. I now have 86% free. Trevor Rushton

Set top box installation


RF is the normal round coax cable in black.
Further you need to select your video channel on TV to watch the set top box RF signal. Usually you change the RF channel frequency also on these things. If you don't know channel number let TV scan it.

Freeview box (Duraband)


Hi Sandra , it could be poor signal ,worth trying another box on your aerial , also the aerial lead could cause this even the one from the wall plate to the Freeview box ,if your analogue picture is snowy then I would suspect the aerial have you looked for a signal strength meter in the menu , might show how good the signal is
hope this helps
cheers John
