Hi I am Vortash .. usually the problem is aerial the digital aerial is diffrent to the old UHF aerial and you will need to change it should you still be using it .. from what you say the set is working fine and you didnt do anything wrong .. it is just like unlike the old annalouge signal where you would get a picture even if it was poor .. digital systems are less forgiving of low signal and just blank the low signal channels out .. to check for sure if your not already , use a set top aerial.. and move it about to find the best signal if you get more channels problem found so update your aerial ( Or stand the kids in the corner holding the aerial ?LOL ) I hope this helps and that you will be on freeview soon .. oh and check with the ITA that your area has full Freeview transmissions .. there is a 24 hour call line .. on 0800-40 85 902 and they will give you all the information you will require hope this helps Regards Vortash

On my Techwood it as built in freeview but every other channel is right except bbc1 and bbc2 both channels say bbc wales,How do i get them back to bbc1 and bbc2 please PLEASE HELP.THANK YOU.


What you need to do is retune the TV, but when it is finished look at the regional settings. Or if the regional option is available before retuning, retune selecting your area so then you get normal BBC channels. It's likely that at the moment the channels for BBC are located at the very top end of the channel list say? - channel 800+.

You are clearly picking up signals from many transmitters. With regional settings you can change it to the area you live in.
But you will have to take into account how good your aerial is. Otherwise the signal quality will not be good on same transmitters. So the set may only suggest those with the best quality signals.
ITV stations might also change.
When done it will move the channels you mention to the top end of the guide, to 800+.

Note many HD channels have no regional options. For example here in Yorkshire we only get ITV Granada and not Yorkshire TV on the HD channel for ITV1. And BBC1HD does not show any programmes when local news comes on.

I have a Logic 22" LCD TV with DVD. All the other channels work, but it freezes on all BBC programs


Did you ever get any BBC channels on that TV and did they stop suddenly, or is it a new TV. Are you inside GB or somewhere els on the world. Does your cable company give through all BBC channels for free, or should you pay for these channels.
Just a few questions to answer one by one. I should start with your cable company.

How to tune a tv


Try the TV in a location where one of the other TVs works. That will show if it's a TV or a cabling issue.

It's entirely possible you have too much power in the aerial signal system. The mux carrying the BBC channels will be one of the strongest at each TV transmitter across the UK. This is because something like 96% of the UK mainland population must be able to receive at least the BBC and main commercial channels to fulfill the broadcasting requirements. Your old TV might not have been so sensitive. The new TV might be more sensitive. So the signal is overwhelming the digital tuner.

Try a variable attenuator. This will give you a power control to reduce the signal as it comes in the back of the new TV without upsetting the other TVs. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for this. http://www.satcure.co.uk/accs/page15a.htm

How to tune a tv channel


This could be too much signal.

Just to be sure though, try the set in another room where one of the other TVs works okay. This will help you see if it's a cable or a TV signal issue. If you pick up all the channels okay it's likely that that other TV point has some bigger signal losses due to the cabling.

The mux (transmitter channel) carrying the BBC signals will be amongst the strongest at each and every TV transmitter across the land. This is because the BBC and the main ITV channels have to reach about 96% of the mainland UK population in order to the broadcasters to fulfill their remit.

TV tuner sensitivity varies between brands and models. It may be that your old TV was just about okay with the signal power, but the new TV's tuner is over saturated.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

I cant get any BBC programs


Check and replace the tuner to this set. It is weak. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box and press "Enter".

There is not a problem with the TV despite it's age this is can be due to your reception of the digital package for BBC. Have you checked through he full listings? sometimes the BBC channel will be at a different number setting because of the transmitter you are receiving. I assume you are using a digital box, you can enter a menu which will give you an indication of the strength & quality of the incoming signal. Do you pick up some of the other BBC channels such as BBC3 or CBBC? It's possible your aerial strength is a bit weak for the digital BBC package & you may need to have that looked at.

I have a technika lcd19dvdid307 tv and a universal remote. How do O re tune for new digital channels? I have lost the original remote. Thank you, kellyanne


I think the point he is making is that he only has a universal remote - not the original, so the problem isn't not being able to find the channels, but not being able to select the retune option in the first place. I have same problem - the remotes that shipped with this TV were rubbish (I have gone through 2!) and some buttons stop working. The retune / setup memu is seperate to the other basic set-up stuff and many universal remotes don't have theis 'other' button. Best solution, get a replacement remote that is MADE to work with this TV then you can auto-tune to your hearts content.
