My tv's freeview wont let me view any other channels apart from the bbc

Freeview? I'm not good with tv words... Is freeview a free channel you stole from the neighbors dish (don't be ashamed)? If so, then you should buy cable (Cable's better. Really. Satellite dish companies looked one thing over. Storms ruin your tv.). If your just watching what you can get through the air, well, that won't work. After a while, you start to lose channels. Just get cable. If you already have a tv network, then you should call the tv company.

  4. Click Edit Channels.

The "Auto Select" option tests each channel. Based on whether a strong or a weak signal is found, the "Auto Select" option puts a check mark in the box next to the channel. As soon as the detection process is complete, you have to click the "Save" option to save the newly selected channels to the EPG.

Windows media center can not find ir receiver

be sure you have installed the driver. If you are using windows 7 you still need to install the winTV driver. I know this because I had the same problem. It should work then. Just go to TV setting in the media center setup and it should scan for channels.

Just to make sure, you do have analog tuners setup right?  Media Center 2005 requires analog tuners be working before digital tuners are allowed.
