Where can I get the comm 7 multiplex Freeviw Channels Download on my TV set?
I live in County Durham and get my Freeview TV Signals from the Bilsdale Trannsmitter.
There are viewers including me who have a Freeview HD TV Set. However there is a problem. I can get the following HD Channels
101 BBC 1, 102 BBC 2, 103 ITV, 104 CHANNEL 4, 105 BBC3, 73 CBBC.
However the following should be available but are not.
106 BBC 4, 107 BBC NEWS,
108 ALJAZEERA (English.)
109 COMMUNITY CHANNEL,
74 CBEEBIES, AND A Non HD Channel 84 ALJAZEERA (Arabic.)
This last group (Multiplex)
Comm 7 is being sent out by 4 transmitters including Bilsdale and Pontop Pike in the North East etc. My Neighbour can get them on her You View box. I have tried tuning in on two areials at mine and one on the other side of my naighbour etc. We are using areials pointing to the same transmitter and my out door areial is less than 60 cm from that of my neighbour. I bought the TV Set less than two years ago. It turns out that there are a number puting lightly of Freeview boxes that are not conpatibale and also some IDTV's etv. The Bush Freeview Box on the list has a Vestal Trip Set (Tuner) I have found out that the tuner in my set is a Vestal one.
The signal is indicated as being there but it does not find any of these Channels and will not lock on. I have even done an update of the downloads that are sent but to no avail. I have been informed that Firmwire might be able to help me by sending me a download on a memory stick to put in my USB Port.
The problem is that some of us already had to upgrade our Freeview systems when the Digital switchover took place when they uped the signal power, this was not put out widely. However for some now for a first time or others a second time new equipment might be needed because the Freeview signals being sent out are not compatible with all of the current systems. Freeviw have been saying that if you have Freeview HD systems you should get the whole range etc, (Bilsdale) for example but for some its yes and others no!
I not only am looking for a download to solve the problem but there will be many out there who do not know yet that the channels are available and when they try to retune some(many) will not be able to get all of them! Yet Freeview are saying you should?
Can any one help me?

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.
When you set up the recorder Freeview stations will be stored. This means that you can record TV stations without watching them. So you can say watch BBC1 on your TV and record a program on Channel Four. You need the recorder set up with Freeview to recorder channels. Otherwise you would have to have your TV on and recorder set to record via the scart lead. Which would be not great quality and messy. You should be able to loop the aerial lead so that both the TV and recorder can get the signals from your aerial, if that's what is bothering you.
Please follow these instructions to manually/automatically update the digital (DTV) channels on the Samsung LE26R73BD.
Please use the following buttons on your Samsung remote control to navigate the on-screen menus:
- "D.MENU" - Opens/closes the on-screen menu (below the numerical key "0") - DIRECTIONAL ARROW KEYS - To navigate up/down/left right through the on-screen menus - "ENTER/OK" - Selects/confirms a selected option (in the centre of the arrows)
Automatic Channel Scan / Update:
1. Make sure you are in digital TV mode - Press the "TV/DTV" button on the remote to switch between analogue (ATV) and digital (DTV) modes. 2. Press the "D.MENU" key 3. Highlight "Installation" (first option) and press "OK/ENTER" 4. If asked for a PIN code, enter 0 0 0 0 using the numerical keyson the remote. If you have set a different PIN code, please enter your own code here. 5. Highlight "Select County" and press "OK/ENTER" 6. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to select "UK" then press "OK/ENTER" 7. Highlight "Auto Scanning" and press "ENTER/OK" 8. Highlight "Scan Mode" and use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to set the value to "Digital" 9. Highlight "Start Frequency" and use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to set the value to "CH 21 . . ." 10. Highlight "End Frequency" and use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to set the value to "CH 69 . . ." 11. Highlight "Start Frequency" again and then press "OK/ENTER" to start the channel scan.
Some of the options above will already be selected so will not need to be changed. I've provided the correct settings just in case they are incorrectly set. Note: UK Freeview stations are on channels 21 to 69 inclusive.
The scan will take a few minutes to complete and the progress will be displayed. When the channel scan is complete, the menu should close automatically and the TV will return to viewing mode. If not, press either the "D.MENU" or "EXIT" button to return to watching TV.
Manual Channel Scan / Update:
1. Make sure you are in digital TV mode - Press the "TV/DTV" button on the remote to switch between analogue (ATV) and digital (DTV) modes. 2. Press the "D.MENU" key 3. Highlight "Installation" (first option) and press "OK/ENTER" 4. If asked for a PIN code, enter 0 0 0 0 using the numerical keyson the remote. If you have set a different PIN code, please enter your own code here. 5. Highlight "Select County" and press "OK/ENTER" 6. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to select "UK" then press "OK/ENTER" 7. Highlight "Manual Scanning" and press "ENTER/OK" 8. Highlight "Scan Mode" and use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to set the value to "Digital" 9. Highlight "Channel Number" and use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to choose which channel number you wish to scan . . .
UK Freeview stations are on channels 21 to 69 inclusive. In manual tuning mode, these need to be scanned one at a time. Please note, many of these channels are "empty". UK Freeview only uses 5 of these channels (called Multiplexes or MUX) or 6 if you have HD. I am unable to tell you which 5 channels these are as they vary according to whichever transmitter or repeater station your aerial is aligned to.
10. Press "OK/ENTER" to start the channel scan. 11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 for each additonal channel you wish to scan.
Please note: Manual scanning can cause some unexpected results - particularly if your aerial has a reception from more than one transmitter/repeater. For this reason it is better to use the automatical scan unless you have a specific reason for needing to scan manually.
Hopefully this will be all you need to update the digital channels on your TV. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please let me know.
If you want to watch Freeview, then you need an aerial, preferably a proper external (or loft mounted) one. Freeview signals are far weaker than traditional tv signals and so trying to receive them without an aerial or via a tv set-top aerial is usually doomed to failure. If you must use a set-top aerial then connect it directly to the tv (not via a video or any other device) and avoid using "amplified" or "booster" aerials unless you have no other choice.
I'm unfamiliar with Vistron, but usually channels are added by going into the menu and looking for "installation" or "set up". But if you have no aerial then you aren't going to get very far.
On your remote control, press 'menu'. Then select 'set up' on the screen. Then select 'Installation' on the screen. Then select 'Automatic channel scan' on the screen. The box should then scan for all channels, and with luck BBC will be included. If not, please repost. Some older Digihome PVR80s can't cope with the new multiplexing standard employed by digital freeview.
Solved the problem by connecting the freeview box back into the dvd recorder. Apparently because the dvdr was made before tvs with integrated freeview, it can only recieve decoded signals from a freeview box, ie analog
Could be that the Scart socket doesn't pass through the signals from the receiver. I had a Goodmans TV with Scart input which just didn't respond to the receiver. When I moved it to the Scart connector on my VCR it worked a treat.
Did a search and found out that my digibox along with some other makes are no longer able to receive any channels because of an update by Freeview.This has resulted in thousands of people unable to receive any programmes at all in Scotland as their signals are all digital in some regions,I live in Durham and the changes have already reached here.This is being rolled out down the country over the next week. No doubt we will not hear anything in the news about this change untill it reaches London,then people will be concerned.
