Hay everyone my friend has a goodmans 15 inch tv with built in free view, during install the free view will not find any channels, the ariel is new. I have attached another freeview box between the aerial and tv which works fine. The internal digital channel unit doesn't seem to be working....help. Normal tv channels are working but we'll lose them soon and was wondering if anyone else has had the same fault?

''weak signal' means exactly that, however it can also mean the signal is too strong.
If you have a booster installed into the ariel remove it, if not, try one. Make sure the TV is directly connected to the ariel, not via a DVD recorder or any other devices which require an ariel input.
Sony tv's have very sensitive tuners installed so its just a case of making your aprticualr settings compatible.
I have a Maxim 15" Portable LCD TV with built in DVB-T Tuner.
It has worked well for 2 years.
Now when you switch it on set to DTV
Starts to reload the channels
Once it has found 90 channels it moves to Add and will not add any.
There are no stored channels from the built in freeview.
However we still have the normal 4 on ATV.
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
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
