Do you have an indoor or outdoor aerial? Indoor aerials will not have the strength to pick up television broadcast signal. Double check your connections, as you could have a loose wire or connection somewhere. You might need to speak to someone who, can take a look at your aerial to see if it is configured correctly. Also to make sure it isn't a problem with the aerial, do you have another TV that you can try using on the aerial. to see if you can get signal?
If you are trying to use the ariel that is supplied with the unit you will never find any channels unless your house is next door to the transmitter. You will need to connect to your normal roof ariel.
The best type of aerial for digital reception is to use a wideband aerial this will give you a better spectrum to receive the signal. To locate the aerial position, if you know in which direction your local transmitter is situated, then point the aerial in that direction. The best way to find out which way to point is to simply look around at any of your neighbours aerials & then aligned yours in the same direction. If you are using a spectrum analyser as your sattelitte finder then you can use this to find other frequencies in the signal range.
You may need a digital booster when sharing 1 aerial. They are quite cheap (£5 on e-bay is the cheapest I've seen) and easy to fit. Also the coaxial cable can make a differance, you really need shielded and with as few joints as possible. I hope this helps. P.S. try tuning with just the problem set connected to the aerial direct.
Seeing as you can't put an aerial outside, can you put one in the loft space, if you have one. You could use a standard FM aerial. It wouldn't be as good as mounting it outside, but it would give you better results then a wire.
There are several things to consider re this fault.....
Normally on small systems there is a selector switch to allow you to select what you need to listen to...for example if you want to play a CD then you select the CD mode, insert the CD push play and away it goes....
In your case you need to select Radio, or maybe select AM or maybe select FM, one of these should be accessed from a digital read out menu where you select your requirements.
Please have a good look at the operating manual to see if you can work out how to select the required listening mode, and you will be sweet...
