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.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a freeview build into my tv which is Panasonic plasms tv Model no. TH-46PZ8BA and wish to know how I can receive HD channels BBC or ITV. Please advice and help.


HD Ready just means the tv can display HD images from an HD source.

The built-in Freeview box on your tv is not Freeview HD compatible so you'll either have to buy a separate external Freeview HD box or subscribe to an HD satellite or cable service.

In any case, most built in Freeview receivers are of barely adequate picture and reception quality. An external box is usually far better in both respects.

Is it possible to tune the channels of an integrated freeview digital box within a tv to a recordable dvd player


No!

However, i see what your trying to accomplish - being able to record the freeview pictures you recieve form the Sony inbuilt tuner onto the recorder.. whilst being able to watch a different channel..?!

Well, you cant. If your Recorder has an inbuilt digital tuner then of course this would solve your issues, whereas if it is purely an analouge recorder and your in an area that has switched over then youll need some new hardware unfortunatly,.

Loss of all BBC programes during re-tune been done 3 times working the just vanish need to re-tune again Any advice This TV is not connected to Sky


This is impossible to answer without knowing which make and model of Freeview receiver you're using (or the make and model of TV if it's a built-in receiver).

In the meantime, check channels 800 to 810 as this is often where the missing channels get relocated to on some equipment which has a slight incompatibility with the recent retune. If that's where your channels have gone then you just have to live with it as it's a hardware limitation of the receiver chipset; the only cure is to buy a separate external Freeview box which often has the additional benefit of giving far better reception quality than most inbuilt receivers.

If this has answered your question then please return the favour by rating my answer; if not then please add a comment with the required additional details and I'll provide additional assistance.

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.

My freeview needs retuned


If it is built in. Do the following.
Press the button on your tv remote that says TV/DTV.
Make sure it says DTV on the screen normally at the top corner of the screen.
Now with the Tv remote press the menu button. you should now see a menu appear go down to Auto Tune / Auto Store and press select or enter. T
his should now start searching through for you Freeview Channels. Dont be alarmed if you dont see many channel appear at the beginning of the scan as it normally goes past 75 % before they start filtering through.

If your box is a standalone then Just use the Freeview box remote and then press the menu button. go down to Install. this would then prompt if you would like to do a full search or add channels. I would do full search this will Delete all the channels previously installed and search from scratch.

I hope this sort out your Freeview
