I have a panasonic viera 42 in plasma. It has a built in freeview receiver. It is in the bedroom and receives a signal through a booster from the main sky box. I can get free view channels on it but can't...


switch tv to analogue tv and auto tune on tuning menu making sure sky is on. It should find it around channel 69. If quality poor then change output frequency to a lower channel. You do this with sky menu and instruction book. Info is changing RF output in book, or google it.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.

Regards,
BElectric

Cannot tune all digital cahnnels on Sharp aquos


Start by doing a factory settings/ defaults on the Sharp rather than a normal automatic retune.This should then be ok. You need to empty the existing presets first so it will find the new type of signal BBC is now using.
If still not working for BBC1 +2 then look at whether you have too much aerial signal strength. (ie a booster/splitter that you could bypass)

Samsung 42'' LE40S86BD WON'T WORK ON DIGITAL OR ANALOGUE BUT WILL WORK WITH SKY OR FREEVIEW BOX,IE ,IT WILL NOT WORK ON ITS OWN.ONE YEAR OLD


Hi,

Sounds like the tuner is faulty or if its a seperate module the cables might have worked themselves loose, the video/mainboard is ok as its still able to produce an image.

If your up for it whip the back off and checks the cables as there is not much inside these models and a cable could have worked itself loose.

If everything looks fine inside, reset the Plug and Play settings and if that doesn't sort it out, then I would personally not worry about it as a seperate freeview and sky box is more than work well if not better.

Thanks

Samsung LCD TV LE26R51BDX - No analogue TV or Freeview


Are you sure the TV has a built in tuner? Does your country have digital over air broadcasting like my country or not?

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

Will this tv work without a converter box when everything goes digital?


Hi.

If your set only has Analogue tuner you will need either Sky. Virgin, Freesat, or freeview box to be able to watch TV channels.
