It to do with the analogue being turned off and the digital changeover taking up new channels using different standard. I think that the free part can be updated via the CI clot.

You can only get the freeview / digital channels through cable by subscribing to a package which includes them. They will then supply the necessary decoder to get the channels. Otherwise you will need a digital aerial and a freeview box if you tv is not dtv ready.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Can you tell me how to tune in a channel when ppreparing to use a freeview box on a onyx sw 1536 ld


Unless you've got an "expensive" Freeview box that modulates its output on to the RF (Aerial) connector then you can't. Most Freeview boxes have 2 aerial connectors - 1 IN from the Aerial itself and 1 OUT to connect to the TV - BUT this is ONLY a PASS-THROUGH connection. This means that the digital Freeview signal which is decoded from the aerial signals is NOT output on the OUT connector and sent down the co-axial cable to your TV. Only the "old" ANALOGUE (not Freeview NON DIGITAL) comes down that co-ax. What you should do is connect the Freeview box to your TV with a SCART cable via the SCART connectors on both. You need to select the AV input on the TV using the remote.
Even if you do have an "expensive" box that does modulate the digital decoded programmes and output these of the RF OUT connector, you should still use a SCART cable as the picture produced will be far better
Hope this helps

TELEVISON MODEL:SAMSUNG LE32B450C4W my gran just recieved this tv today she also use virgin media digital on tuning in the television i noticed i could not find digital tv and that i had to go through...


In short: No.

Virgin Media is received via an external box and there is no way to simply program the tv so that your gran can just press one number.

There is a complicated way, but it would be even more confusing. Some Virgin boxes have an RF (i.e. regular tv aerial) output in addition to the usual Scart output. The RF output can be tuned into a regular terrestrial channel, but reception quality is poor compared to using the Scart. Your gran will have to remember to ensure the tv is set to terrestrial reception and to use the source button and ext when she wants to go back to Virgin. This also will not work when the tv uses it's own inbuilt digital Freeview receiver so it's both confusing and useless after the digital switchover.

Either leave the TV permanently set to ext and tell your gran to only ever use the Virgin remote to change channels, or be patient with her as she takes time to learn how to select between terrestrial, Freeview and Virgin.

It's less than ideal and when I worked for a tv rental company this kind of complication was a major pain for older customers (and younger non tech savvy ones!)

It may also be worth looking for a simplified universal remote control with clear buttons. There is one which has large buttons but the controller is almost the size of a sheet of A4 paper.

How do i set up atv without inbuilt digital a seperate digital box and a video recorder?the tv digital tuner and video all have scart leads.Should the aerial cable go to the video or digital box?


Aerial to digi box first then video then tv (not strictly necessary)
Depending on what you want to do with the vcr and the digi minimum scart connection is
digi to video - video to tv

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 ;)
