Icannot get channels BBC1 & BBC2 on BT Vision....why is this please?


Freeview occasionally adds and removes channels. Sometimes, Freeview juggles some of the channel numbers around too. To make sure your box or digital TV has the correct channels and channel numbers, you have to rebuild the channel lineup.

Tv is 4 years old yesterday it lost its built in freeview channels. when trying to get the menu up it appears for a second then goes off. Tv still receives sky and picture is good


Hello pip_o

It's possibly a defective digital tuner, but the vanishing menu suggests a more serious (and expensive) fault with the main/AV board, assuming it's an LCD TV. It's impossible to be certain which one without doing some testing, but due to the inherent dangers with high-voltage electronics, I don't advise on self-repair for TVs.

If you're looking for an inexpensive solution and the TV is no longer covered by any warranty, I'd suggest buying an external Freeview box to connect to your TV. This would also enable you to upgrade to Freeview HD. Being 4 years old, your TV will not have been fitted with a DVB-T2 (Freeview HD) tuner.

If you want to try this solution, I can recommend the following box, which is great value at just £25.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270828771661

They are described as "reconditioned", but I've bought and installed 2 of these for my own customers recently and both have been brand-new. The majority of these are unused returns which Tesco are consequently not allowed to sell described as "new". For a lesser known brand, I've been quite impressed with some of the recent Technika products and they are easy to install and come supplied with all the necessary cables, etc. Additionally, if it doesn't work for any reason, you will be able to return it under UK Distance Selling regulations.

Before purchasing this (or any other) Freeview HD box, please check your TV has a spare HDMI input socket as SCART cannot carry an HD signal. If you don't have a spare HDMI socket, I'd also check your TV has a spare SCART input socket or you will need to disconnect your Sky box every time you want to use the Freeview box - which brings me to my final point . . .

. . . Off the top of my head, I can't think of any Freeviews channels which aren't available on Sky, so as long as you can still use your TV for Sky, do you really need to spend any money on it?

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

BElectric

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

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 think you need to get Sky because it will give you 100% coverage of all terrestrial channels. You may need to retune the television otherwise just get sky
