I recently pressed add new services on this set top box. The new services were added but the existing channel numbers were changed by the box. Channels numbered 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. are now in the high 800,s. Is there any way to renumber these channels?
Hopefully those of you who still own their DTI550 had it operational this last weekend and picked up the download that fixed this? If not, it should be repeated some time soon. So don't throw your 550 away yet!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

YOu cannot ADD channel to a CRT TV anymore because Analogue transmissions no longer prevail.
You must use an HDTV digital set top box connected to the antenna input. These have an "Auto tuning" facility which you access from the MENU options. Any new channels which come into being will automatically be added into the memory of the set top box. You just need to remember to do a retune every so often to find out if other channels have come "On Air".
you will need first to configure the antenna sources where you want to program channels. and then you can add channel through your remote control. to add channels in the channel memory, first press MENU and open the set up menu and then highlight installation and press enter. a new set of installation menu icons will appear on the screen. open the terrestrial menu highlight channel add, and then press enter. the list of channel program from the antenna source that you select will appear on the screen. to add now a channels to the channel memory, highlight unchecked box next to the channel number you want to add, and then press enter to check the box.to save new settings highlight done and press enter.
Here is how to try and get them back if they are available. On the original TV remote do the following- 1. Press the MENU button 2. Use the channel down button to select channel set 3. Select channel add/delete 4. Press volume up 5. Select channel you want to add by using the channel up/down buttons on remote. 6. When you get to the channel you want use the Volume up button and the color of the channel number should become either blue or green if it is added and it will be red if it is deleted. 7. Repeat until you have added all the channels you feel you are missing. 8. Press MENU button to exit. If the channels are still available this should get them to return. If not contact you cable provider to see if they have moved some of their channels recently or check their web site for the current channel line up.
You can still record all the freeview channels. What has happened is you've run out of room on your hard drive. First you must deselect all the top up channels; menu > 'Setup' > 'Customise TUTV', and
un-ticking all boxes releases space and produces a report of '100%'
free for recording. The time available for recording depends on the
size of the hard drive and amount of data saved in each recording and
15% of disc space is not counted. This is for software or programme
information etc. and, even when not subscribed, ads from TUTV are
downloaded to library. However they are replaced or removed
automatically, and messages are deleted after a week. Also delete all the recordings in the library you don't need anymore.
maybe a defragged hard drive follow this procedure:
1. Select Menu, Set-Up, Help. 2. Press the Green button on the remote control. 3. This shows the Advanced Information screen. 4. Now press the Blue button which will prompt you with a warning box. 5. Now press the Green button if you wish to proceed. 6. The DTR will take around a minute to complete the reformat, and will then automatically restart itself.
Next do a channel rescan.
Updating the Channel List Automatically You can update the channel list when the broadcaster adds new Services or if you move the TV to a new location. 1. Press the MENU button to display the menu. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Digital Menu", then press the ENTER button. 2. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Channel", then press the ENTER button. 3. Press the ENTER button again, to select "Country". 4. Select the appropriate country by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button. Press the ENTER button to confirm your choice. Even though you have changed the country setting in this menu, the country setting for Analogue TV is not changed. (Refer to page 11 of the user guide) 5. Press the ▲ or ▼ button again, to select "Auto Store". Press the ENTER button. When it has finished, the number of scanned services will be displayed. The existing favourite channel list will not be deleted when the channel list is updated. To stop the scan before it has finished, press the ENTER button with "STOP" selected. 6. Press the EXIT button to exit. If the signal status is poor, the "No Service found! Check the aerial connection" message is displayed. Check the aerial connection and the try the procedure again. If the channel icon is greyed out and you cannot tune the channels press the TV/DTV button on the remote control unit so that the icon is visible again and not greyed out. This will allow you to tune the TV.
make sure you have your tv set to cable, if you have a set top box unplug the box plug it back in reboot it, like i said make sure your tv is set to cable then do auto channel scan should work good luck!!
