An aerial, or antenna, will not pick up a channel unless it is being broadcast within a range of 50 miles from your location. Regardless of the aerial type, it's functionality is limited unless it is in the area of the station broadcasting the HD signal.

SOURCE: digital channels

is the antenna a UHF/ VHF type? most of the broadcasters are broadcasting in UHF for the digital, also an antenna pre amp will help tune in those distant stations. you must point the antenna in the area of the signal. if you are able to pick up 35% of the singal or better, you will have a picture.

Do a first time installation, move the TV or bite the bullet and either buy an external aerial or extend the main house aerial cable to reach the TV. assuming your TV has no signal where it is now

SOURCE: can't get channels 4 and 5

If the TV is ok in the other room then the problem lies with your incoming signal. Check your connections. If you are on cable, then it could be a problem with the box. Can you use a scart connection from the box to the TV? If so try to connect up this way & if the problem is still the same then get your box checked.

You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

Freeview TV's just require an outside aerial. That's it.

How do i tune lg 26lc2r which is connected to cable for freeview


Freeview comes from an aerial; Freesat comes from a dish. If your TV does not have a satellite tuner, it will not tune channels from a dish.

Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSAT is the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.

Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.

If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.

If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.

This could be a problem to do with your aerial rather than the TV. However, your first action should be a "Factory Defuault" reset. Make sure the TV does a full retune rather than just looking at the channels where the stations were previously.

The TV will have a flat response through the channel frequency range. Your aerial though could be a very different matter. Depending on the type of aerial, and especially if it's a banded aerial that discriminates against certain frequencies, then the retune may well have moved certain channel into frequencies that your current aerial really struggles to pick up.

You don't say what your TV region is, so I can't be specific because you didn't give the necessary information in the question. But I'll give you an example based on my region which is North West England, receiving off the Winter Hill transmitter.

Anyone with a Group C/D banded aerial will be okay picking up most of the channel muxes because they're grouped up at the top end of the frequency range (ch 49~57). That's pretty perfect for a C/D aerial. However, the new Freeview HD channels that give BBC 4 HD, 4 +1HD, BBC News HD is down at ch 37. A C/D aerial will struggle to pick that up because it is far less sensitive at that frequency, and particularly so if it is a contract Yagi type aerial.

The majority of aerials fitted though are the so-called Wideband High Gain. These favour the upper end of the frequency range again. So channel 37 will be picked up. But is is much weaker than the other muxes.

as far as I am aware, you need a standard analogue aerial to receive Freeview, not a dish. The aerial plugs into set top box, which is connected to tv by scart. Freeview is different from Freesat

Hello .i have a lg tv which i purchased in 2008 and only watched videos,i now want to watch tv i have tried auto tune and it only finds 3 vhf channels and none digital.it has preview built in but i can not...


if it has freeview built in its usually programmes itself try turning it on and go into the menu and there should be an auto tune function hit that and it should tune up but remember it needs to be connected to an aerial if it still says no signal try moving the aerial, getting a booster for the aerial they usually plug into the mains then into the back of your tv and you plug your aerial into that to boost the frequencey if that doesn't work then you might need to think about getting a new aerial but you can get 1 for under £30

Your lack of channels is from a specific group and is usually caused by poor signal from your aerial. A new larger aerial may solve that.
Freesat is OK if you have a dish installed.

LG LCD TV 37LP1D digital freeview tuning problems


Hi - I have the same problem. Also in Cornwall LG were not interested in helping because the TV was 3 1/2 years old. There was a possible fix in the end offered via LG at a cost of £180 + vat - a hardware update that might or might not work but I was not going to pay that so I now watch my LG 42 plasma via a £25 digi box from the CO OP. LG must have sold 1000's of these Tv's so when the digital switch starts in the more populated areas of the country I exect many more web postings.

Tv with built-in digital tuner not receiving any channels


Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:http://www.stevelarkins.freeuk.com/freeview_digital_tv.htm
Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels.
This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard) signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial.
make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out.
The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable.
If you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these.
If the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the signal.
please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will only make it worse.
try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.
