Sorry, but I think you have to contact BT close to your granddad and ask them to send a tech to restore the settings.
In the mean time you can check if all cables are still in place, but I can't come over to do that.

SOURCE: Can't set up my new Nikkai 5.8GHz video sender.

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.

Hoe do I connect a sonytv KDL26EX302 to bt tv


In order to connect your TV - any sort - you need:-
1. A BT broadband package.
2. A BT YouView box.
3. A network connection to your HomeHub or other router.
If one of these is missing (or if your broadband connection is too slow) you will not be able to connect to BT TV.
If you have all 3, then on the TV select the signal source to the socket that the YouView box is connected to and it will be installed automatically.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How do I access bt sport using my remote ?


H
Please bear with me as I do a little explaining since I've just got it sorted myself ! BTSport is available to anyone with BT Broadband, however you cannot get it on a normal TV. I have a YouView box and with BT Infinity I can BTSport1, BTSport2 & ESPN on my YouView box (Channels 507, 608, 509) played through my TV. My TV however will not pick up the channels. Just says they are "scrambled".They also appear to be available on Sky (channels 413, 414, 417) and Virgin (channels 547, 548, 529).
I strongly suspect that the only way to see these channels without a YouView box, Sky, or Virgin is on line through your computer.
Hope this answers your enquiry.

Icannot get channels BBC1 & BBC2 on BT Vision....why is this please?


Freeview occasionally adds and removes channels. Sometimes, Freeview juggles some of the channel numbers around too. To make sure your box or digital TV has the correct channels and channel numbers, you have to rebuild the channel lineup.

Yourview com support


There's been some rearrangement of the existing Freeview channels to make way for even more rubbish. YouView boxes are affected just the same as any Freeview receiver

Btbt com help btvision


BT Vision uses Freeview plus catch up TV. Freeview requires a retune because they are making way for new channels. Retune the DTV part or your BT Vision box.

My youview has taken over my humax channels


Put BT box into standby. This is probably due to the scart connection. Try to connect both boxes via HDMI if possible.

Can't tune Alba 7395 VCR into a Goodmans GDB12XIT Freeview box


Has the box got a scart socket? If it has connect the VCR to that via a scart lead. If the alba has two scart sockets then use the second one. When recording set the channel as AV1 or AV2.
If you don't have enough scart sockets to connect your TV, VCR and Box, then get one of these Scart Switching Box from places such as Amazon or Argos.

Cant get my bt vision [freeview] to come on. my box doesnot let me view freeview . on my bt vision box.


This system can only be used if you subscribe to BT Vision.
They have it configured so that Freeview only works once the box has checked your subscription.
I think this is a bit mean of BT because with their system Freeview is not free as you cannot access it without paying the monthly fee.

How do you connect bt vision to a sony bravia kdl 37v4000.I have it working ok on freeview only but the bt vision appears on analogue channel 6 and the vision remote changes the tele channel not the vision...


Sounds like you cant have set up the scart cables properly. Im unimpressed with BT for not setting it up for you, why didn't they?
Plus you will not need the freeview box if you have BT Vision, so i would take out the freeview box and just connect one end of the Scart lead into the back of the BT Vison box then put the other side of the lead to the Back of the TVs scart socket. Then all you need to do now if change the channel to AV1 OR AV2 or whatever channel you have.
