No freeview bbc channels

Hello and thank.

I have just installed a JVC AV-28E50 with integrated freeview and have run through all of the factory installation scans for both anolgue and freeview channels.

The odd thing is that the digital/freeview receiver finds a good selection of available channels with plenty of signal strength. However, when selecting either BBC1 or 2 the channel displays for approx 5 seconds then the screen goes blank. During this time I can see that the signal strength for both channels is pretty good; 60% +. This cut out does nt happen on any other station.

I have also tried my stand alone freeview box to see if the prblem was with the signal/transmission but it works fine and happily displays all of the channels the TV can find and the BBC channels do not cut out which leads me to conclude there may be a fault with the set?

Any ideas? I can use my stand alone box for BBC but it is not the ideal setup, especially when the TV has one integrated.

Thank you for your consideration and thoughts

John Kennedy

    Hello there - I have a JVC LT - 23D50BK with Free view and the same thing started happening today Jan 8th 2009 - It's only 18 months old. Screen is fine for 5 secs then a black screen and I cannot get it back without changing the channel then when I go back it happens again! It happens on BBC 1. BBC 2. BBC 3 (NOT BBC 4) and BBC NEWS. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this other than chucking this TV out the window? Thanks.

Why does my bush freeview box freezes on bbc channels why


This could be too much signal thanks to the Freeview retunes going on. Your aerial is more sensitive at some frequencies, so there's more signal power higher up the frequency range.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

My tv's freeview wont let me view any other channels apart from the bbc


Freeview? I'm not good with tv words... Is freeview a free channel you stole from the neighbors dish (don't be ashamed)? If so, then you should buy cable (Cable's better. Really. Satellite dish companies looked one thing over. Storms ruin your tv.). If your just watching what you can get through the air, well, that won't work. After a while, you start to lose channels. Just get cable. If you already have a tv network, then you should call the tv company.

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.

After retune no bbc 1 2 bbc news channels tv with


Sounds like you haven't retuned the set correctly. Use the factory settings/ default setting if poss. Look out for too much signal if you are on a booster.

Loss of BBC channels


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

For troubleshooting the retune procedure visit http://tvretune.co.uk/troubleshooting/

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.
