You can purchase a converter box that will allow you to pick up the digital broadcasts.

This should only apply to you if you were getting your tv shows over the air with an outside antenna.

If you do need the converter box, you have until July 31 09 to apply for a $40.00 coupon that you can use to help offset the cost of the new converter box.

You can apply for the coupon at this website https://www.dtv2009.gov/ which also has a lot more information related to the digital conversion.

I am trying to re tune to my local radio station radio Merseyside on dab but it says station not available or goes to another station ?


Have you checked the frequency of that Station?
Also check your aerial.

I have also found this:
Listeners to DAB digital radio in the Merseyside area will need to retune on Wednesday 20th April following a frequency change that will affect local radio stations.

The local DAB multiplex carrying BBC Merseyside, Radio City 1-3 and Capital Liverpool among others will be moving to a new frequency in order to allow better reception over a wider area. The current frequency will be turned off late on Tuesday 19th April. The new frequency will go live from 6am on Wednesday 20th April, after which listeners will need to rescan their DAB radios in order to continue listening.

How do I change my service from analog to H D?


Most LCD tv's built in the last 4 years are HD compatible. Most cheaper brands tv's are 720 HD and some are full HD 1080 a little more money. Since their is no more analog broadcast as June 2009 all tv's manufactured around 2006 started incorperating the digital tuner (DTV) along with the analog so that the tv would still receive analog broadcast while the digital transistion was ongoing. All tv's with a Cathode Ray Tube (glass picture tube) are not HD compatible. First you will have 1 or 2 ports on the tv ethier on the side panel or rear panel of the set. They a marked HDMI 1 HDMI 2 or HDMI A HDMI B. If you have these ports your set is Hd Compatible. You may also need to upgrade your cable or satelllite equipment and subscribe to a HD package to be able to get HD service. You will need a HDMI cable to connect your cable or satellite receiver to the HDMI port on you tv. Call your local cable or satellite provider for options to upgrade to HD. Most over the air broadcast stations depending on your area transmit some stations in HD free of charge. A good quality outdoor antenna works best to give you stable signal. You may need to change the settings of the tv as some sets default to the 480i this is the standard digital signal.

HD Tuner


The Gateway GTW-P42M303 can display HD content. However, you will need a set-top box to get that content. The TV only has an analog tuner (NTSC or PAL, depending on the area where you purchased the TV). Thus, you will need to connect a digital-to-analog converter to get most over-the-air stations. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) Most of the common d-t-a converters only provided SD (480i) output. There are some HD tuner boxes available; you may have a hard time finding them.

If you have cable or satellite service, then you can get the HD programming package and view it on this TV.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...


Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

I have 42 inch toshiba, my husband cancelled our cable, is there a way to get the tv to work for just local channels??


The instructions are in your TV manual, but because of the complexity of the TV and it's features, it may be difficult to find. I believe it is on P. 31 (at least of the manual I got online). You'll need to connect a TV antenna appropriate for your area. If broadcast sites are close (line of site) a simple bookshelf antenna will work. With the antenna connected, and the antenna input selected in setup, you allow the TV to scan for local channels in your area. I hope this helps you.

Cannot get bbc 1 2 3 have retuned several times. it is a television with built in freeview


Do you use off-air signals (the bunny ears) or a cable/satellite/fiber-optic box?

With off-air signals, it is most likely that
A. the station is broadcasting 1080i content to a 720p TV or
B. the station in experiencing technical difficulties, is currently unavailable in your area, or is being blocked by a large tree.

Otherwise, this is a problem with your receiver. Check your settings and ensure that the station is currently available in your area.

BRAVIA TV KDL-40V2500


i had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.
