Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

hi,
First of you have to check the Atenna connection in the rare of your tv. Check for any loose contact on the connection of the wire to the pin. may be its the cause for showing signal as 0%. you can confirm the same by connecting the tv at the place where you doughters tv is connected. If there you get the picture then there is some thing wrong with the atenna connection.

If want information how to tune your tv then need information like BRAND and MODEL NUMBER of you TV.
ok

How to Get Freeview?


First check you have the right ariel on roof or you have a good indoor digital type.
Check you can get a good signal in your area, ask a neighbour perhaps.
Make sure your TV has Freeview receiver built in or capable of accepting HD Top box Freeview.
Tune your device...auto tune or whatever and save the channels to TV memory.
(If you have a Satelite dish you can get Freeview that way but you will need a FreeSat box)...Aim for the Astra 28 degree Sat, you will get stacks of channels and all the Plus+1s and even more stuff from the rest of the world which is good if you're learning Hindi, French, Russian, Chinese etc etc...English even
It's all very easy to get going...

Why wont my tv tune in the digital chanels using just an Ariel, its a Grundig about 6 years old.


Unless you have built in freeview then you won't be able to receive digital channels. Sounds like that's the problem here.
You'll need to buy a separate freeview box, you can get a basic model for ~£20.

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ...

Recieving no digital channels in my LCD TV


hi there alot of the updates for the system should automaticly download via ariel to the tv to keep you up to date some times if the strenght of the signal isnt srong enough then you might not get the update they send out , one thing i have found is that if you use an ariel booster then this makes the signal stronger this helps particularly if you have more than one tv set up with the same ariel, you could try unpluging all ariels to other tvs making sure the ariel lead you are using has no conections in it as this also gives you loss of signal if there are multiple conections in the lead runing from the ariel to your tv set hope this helps some

Cheers ;)

Digital TV not picking up all channels


TV is searching for over the air channels. Select in the main menu to go from over the air to cable channels and you should be fine.

this is because most new lcd tv's have a poor tuner built in and require a stronger ariel, to pull in the analogue or digital signal. Check that your ariel is freeview capable whether using freview or not, as these ariels are better at pulling in the signal, or do what i have had to do and buy a mains plug in signal booster from Asda for about £6.00, this did the trick, especially if you don't want to replace an ariel costing about £30.00
