Are you using the freeview tuner, I only ask as it looks like your having a similar problem that I had a few months back. I moved into a new house and plugged in the tv. Using the freeview tuner I wasnt able to get any channels. It turned out although the aerial picked up regular analogue tv it wasnt the correct aerial for freeview.

I have a freeview build into my tv which is Panasonic plasms tv Model no. TH-46PZ8BA and wish to know how I can receive HD channels BBC or ITV. Please advice and help.

HD Ready just means the tv can display HD images from an HD source.

The built-in Freeview box on your tv is not Freeview HD compatible so you'll either have to buy a separate external Freeview HD box or subscribe to an HD satellite or cable service.

In any case, most built in Freeview receivers are of barely adequate picture and reception quality. An external box is usually far better in both respects.

Hi, I have a digital tv plugged into an extension cable in an upstairs (Toshiba) bedroom; it works perfectly - receiving all channels. I have a digital tv downstairs (Samsung) where it seems the wall...

Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas

I have a sony tv. It only has sound on some chanels. I have checked the cable connection with another tv;it is ok. What should I look for

Hi It sounds like a signal problem, I'm assuming its Freeview channels you are dropping, I have had the same problem on some of my TV's especially since the re-tuning channel 5 fiasco. Have you tried Re-tuning the DVB-tuner from the freeview menu, then settings or set-up or installation, then choosing the First Time Install option as it will wipe all previous channels. If you have a portable you can try it on the same aerial see if you have the same problem with that, then if it is the signal, buy a booster and put that on the RF input, which is what I did with the same problem. I am in a poor signal area and have had to have my aerial raised to get even an average signal.

We have had our tv for a few years, cant remember exactly, it is a CTVL26W34ID and we need to know if it is digital ready. Thanks for any help you can give.

I cannot find a manual for that number.
If it is digital you would be able to receive more than the 5 analogue programmes.
It would probably mention freeview on some part of the tv.
If you can get some of the extra freeview channels but not clearly then the aerial will need changing.

I presume you are from the uk, I had to change my aerial to get reception the cost for that was £240(i needed a indoor roof aerial so needed extra boosters).so aerial will be £150-£240.
You can turn your tv into a digital by adding a freeview digital box £20-50 .
Or purchase a new tv with freeview incorporated in it.
So i `m pretty sure if you have read the above you can decide whether its digital,but i think not.

Tv with built-in digital tuner not receiving any channels

Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:
Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels.
This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard) signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial.
make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out.
The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable.
If you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these.
If the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the signal.
please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will only make it worse.
try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.

There is not a problem with the TV despite it's age this is can be due to your reception of the digital package for BBC. Have you checked through he full listings? sometimes the BBC channel will be at a different number setting because of the transmitter you are receiving. I assume you are using a digital box, you can enter a menu which will give you an indication of the strength & quality of the incoming signal. Do you pick up some of the other BBC channels such as BBC3 or CBBC? It's possible your aerial strength is a bit weak for the digital BBC package & you may need to have that looked at.

Setting up my freeview box- NO CHANNELS FOUND


The cable & wireless system is not capable of picking up the digital freeview frequencies.
Idealy you need to put a new aerial on the roof,
If this is not possible try an indoor aerial that you to plug in to the mains electrical supply.
