Question about Televison & Video
When I reprogram the TV, I'm supposed to get (in-the-neighborhood of) 50 channels. I only receive (maybe) 30 channels.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: now using satellite dish
Not likely - - there is nothing on the remote that would cut-off the signal, unless you have selective inputs and you were not viewing the correct one. However, "cable" CH03 is correct if your satellite is attached to the screw-on "F" connector in the back of the Tv... When you press menu on the reciever does a menu appear on-screen??

You should have your system setup in the following manner below:
You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.
Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.

The official line on this is that you should try and retune again, but there are some Panasonic models with similar model numbers to yours which have been specifically identified as having incompatibility problems with the Freeview retune.
However, your model is definitely not one which appears on the problem list, so it's worth checking that your aerial wasn't misaligned or damaged during the gales last weekend. In addition the Winter Hill transmitter is currently undergoing work until December which will significantly boost the digital signal and give it HDTV capability, so your box may have have been knocked out of kilter if the current digital service was temporarily operating at restricted capacity. Digital signals are by their nature much weaker than analogue tv and if you have a marginal aerial system which has been up for many years and which feeds a number of televisions in the house then it's definitely a good idea to see about upgrading your aerial system.
The difference in actual parts costs between a top spec aerial system and a poor one are surprisingly low, it's also easily possible with careful design and installation to get a better performance with poor parts than you can get with a poorly designed and installed system using top quality parts. One thing does hold true though: a well designed and installed system using poor parts will only last a few years before needing serious attention but a proper job can last up to thirty years.
If you're sure about your aerial system and retuning does not help, then you'll need to contact Panasonic directly. The first web address below will give you their contact number along with a list of Freeview boxes with known retune issues. A second web address which I've given takes you to an excellent Sheffield based tv aerial company which has an incredibly informative website.
I hope that you've found my answer to be helpful and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.
