Loss of sound is often a SCART connection problem. Check that the SCARTS are pushed in securely. Or if the SCART is old, it may be faulty. Try a newer one, or one that you know is definitely ok.

I just did a factory reset this morning and I had the same problem until I realised that you have to use the "Output" button to get the Video Outputs to DVI Digital (see page 17 of the manual), if that's what your connection is, then I could select "menu" and do a channel search. Hope this helps.

Hi, will my LG LST-5100P work in England?


Yes the digital set top box should work in the UK. When it arrives just re-scan for the channels as the UK are currently in the middle of a digital switch over.

Digibox remote does nohing, receiver cg5660-m,

Oh dear. In my opinion and based upon experience, Durabrand are simply awful in general, a really cheap and nasty American brand which Wal-Mart foisted on the unwitting UK public after buying Asda. The clue is in the name, it's like buying a used car from "Honest John Motors". If you recall how appallingly poor Amstrad and Bush were like in the 80's and 90's then you'll get the idea.

Ribbing aside (but I am serious about Durabrand's atrocious reputation), the best you can do is to hope that it's still under warranty or to assert your rights to a possible refund under the Sale of Goods Act. Try to get a refund, avoid an exchange.

Alternatively, you may wish to invest a tenner in a new compatible remote control, but given that you can get perfectly good new Freeview boxes (anything but DB) from just £20 (or free on FreeCycle/Freegle) including a remote it may be the better choice.

I hope that you have found my reply to be of use, if so please rate my answer.

Why doesnt the lowry freeview box have itv channel 4 or 5 whats the point of selling it?

Are you in a poor signal aera? The Lowry box is shockingly bad at picking up low signals. <br /> <br /> I had lots of problems with it, including a missing/intermittant itv channel.<br /> <br /> I swapped mine for a phillips

No signal on my goodmans xpro freeview on the flat screen it says

hi there the first thing i would make sure you have a wide band ariel capable of receiving free view if the ariel is old and was there before you moved in and you have been there a while theres a good chance that the ariel isn't a wide-band ariel,

also check here with your post code to make sure free view is transmitted in your area

if you know you can get it and you have a wide band ariel make sure all connections are secure and that you don't have many leads connected together because you will lose a vast amount of quality though many leads to a point where you wont get a picture also make sure its the only tv on the connection as having a few will also do the same thing. ariel boosters can make a massive improvement on the line these can be bought any where even you local asda/walmart, make sure you have one secure connection right to the ariel socket to your tv. this eliminates any other problems

make sure you have your tv tuned in right if you have just moved house you will need to rescan for Chanel's as they can be on different frequencies from where you last lived

I hope this helps you if you Need a maual for your set please leave make and model number from the back of the set and ill try and get u a online manual for this set

Good Luck Hope You Sort It

Sagem pvr 6200T UK freeview box, display frozen.

I left the box and went for a walk!!!

About four hours after having freezed an error 09 message came up on the set top display and then everything returned to normal, after an on TV screen message that update had been successful.!?!

No difference in in any operation of the freeview box.

Note to self and other users

Updating the channel tuning does seem to work ok, though I have to vary between where channel 4 can be found - or learn welsh!
