    when i moved house the tv came too. when i retuned digital channels itv and channel 4 did not retune but all other freeview and radia stations did. both stations do tune in analogue mode (terrestrial stations only). the freeview box on my other tv is also missing these 2 stations.
    thanks

I think i get the jist - you've moved, and now you're missing a couple channels. from what you're saying, i assume you are using a digital converter box, or have a digital ready tv. i personally have seen many problems since the digital change, specifically loss of channels. even though digital tv is supposed to be 'all that', and it is fine when it works, the quality and placement of your antenna is still critical. you are still receiving a signal on the same channel, only with digital, they have reduced the bandwidth. this action was not done with the consumer in mind, it was done to free up air space for other communicatiomns. try an amplified antenna [available at radio shack for about 20 dollars], and try different positions. if this doesn't work, you might try an outdoor antenna. with digital signals, if there is an obstruction between you and the transmission site, rather than getting a weak, snowy picture, or shadows, as you would back in the days of analog, your receiver will simply not receive the station

JVC LT22HD32J DIGITAL TV WONT HOLD CHANNELS AFTER RETUNE


It's October 2012 and I have a problem with my exact same model of JVC TV which has worked fine since i bought it in January. In fact it has worked the best out of the four that we have in the house working off the same aerial until 4 days ago. I tried retuneing and then the problem expanded to more channels. I tried to reset to factory options and then do a retune but lost all the channels. I have again reset and retuned and I'm back with channels that I can only tune into for between 4 and 15 seconds before the screen goes blank. None of the other televisions are affected. Digital UK website show no works to transmitters in our area and JVC are impossible to contact. Their site sends one around in circles in a most frustrating and unhelpful way. I will not be buying JVC again. Any help offered would be gratefully accepted!

Itv and ch4 channels have no signal on my digital


First check with some of your neighbours to find out if they have the same problem if you are using a communial aerial, if thiers are ok, try re-tuning the TV from "Auto tune" in the set-up menu, this will retune the entire TV & should pick up the missing channels.

Cannot get ITV or Channel 4 on newly aquired DTV, why is that?


The only thing I can think is happening is for some reason it's ignoring these stations. I suggest you try going to the factory settings for it. Then retune, it might clear the tunner's memory.

No BBC channels available after retuning Sony Trinitron TV


When TV channels are moved from one frequency to another frequency that was previously used by a different channel (sorry, but there's no simple way of saying that !) as has happened recently in th UK, some digital TVs and digiboxes struggle to sort the channel list out properly and channels can go missing as you describe.

If your equipment has the option to delete all currently stored channels (normally in the tuning menu options) then do so and then do a full re-tune.
Sometimes, this solves the problem as the equipment is no longer aware of any previous use of a frequency and just loads every channel it finds.

If this doesnt work, or your equipment doesnt have the option, then there is normally the option soemwhere in the menus to retore the item to "factory defaults/configuration". This will clear all previously stored channels and after a full re-tune your missing chanels should be there. However, any other configuration changes you previously made, e.g picture size, output type (RGB/NSCT/etc), etc will be lost and you'll need to set these again.

NB. some regions of the country have lost some channels temporarily now until after the switch over programme completes at the end of 2012. If you visit the Freeview website, this will tell you if your area is affected.

We have a Thompson box in the lounge and until recently we had a Technix box in the conservatory. Both gave full coverage and good quality until a few weeks ago, when the Technix box gave very poor quality...


Can you try a non-working box in the Thompson box's location in the lounge? If you swap the boxes in the lounge and they both work normally then you must suspect that the cable supplying the conservatory must be the problem.

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
