Loss of Freeview channels

I have just lost ITV, ch 4 and a few others (3,4,6,8,10). TV says this number not available. Sony say I need an aerial upgrade. But I have a pole top amp and it has been fine for weeks! Any ideas???????

    Thanks for this

    Eventually traced to an old coax between my booster and the set. Now replaced with a gold plated one, and all is OK.

    up any freeview channels. Is there a special setup for this.
    I have good picture on my normal channels@?

    Anyone knows what i have to do ?

They are probably engineers working on your local digital transmitter or the wind has moved your ariel slightly.
This message is always to do with signal and is not a fault with the tv.

Sony VHS model no: SLV-SE710G isn't recording now that we have a freeview box. It just keeps changing back to L1 whenever i try to record anything!! I only want to record channels 1,2,3,4 !! HELP!!

Its hard to work out without looking at your cables. I assume the problem started when the freeview box got set up. I would guess that the aerial cable is now in the set top box instead of the vcr as the vcr sounds like it is unable to record when there's no signal (a common feature) so there shouldn't be a fault with the vcr,

just unplug the aerial from the set top box & plug it back into the vcr. Ch 1 2 3 4 should be back on vcr but set top box wont have any Ch.

most set top boxes have an aerial output, so you'll need another aerial cable, plug this into the aerial input on the vcr & ch 1 2 3 4 will be there but these will be analog (if your area has stopped analog transmission thats the prob rite there)

If you plug the matching cables from the set top box into L1 on vcr you'll be able to record digital tv as L1 use a signal from another tuner eg set top box, dvd player whereas the vcr channels 1 2 3 4 use the vcr's built in analog tuner. so it shouldn't be a biggie another cable should fix it,

Hope this is helpful, ask if you need more info

Lost ITV channels and C4

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
