Question about Televison & Video
I have a "Next Wave" High Definition Set Top Box attached to my "Hicon" TV-which is analog plasma. I have had the set top box for nearly three years. It worked perfectly in my old address....but now at my new address in a ground floor unit it only picks up channel 10 and all of the SBS channells including the radio channels. I have a splitter powered by electricity where I plug the antenna cable and have antenna cables going traight into each piece of equipment eg: VHS , DVD players and Burner and Hight definition box. All other pieces of equipnent work perfectly, except for my Set Top Box not picking up all the channels. I would be grateful for any comment or ideas. Regards Maria
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.

I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

SOURCE: Unable to pick up local
first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.

My set top box has setup menu, channels, autoscan to scan for channels. They changed some of the channels here after the original switch to digital, and a fresh autoscan was needed to again find the channels that moved. See if your box has autoscan for channels, and do it.
