The cable & wireless system is not capable of picking up the digital freeview frequencies.
Idealy you need to put a new aerial on the roof,
If this is not possible try an indoor aerial that you to plug in to the mains electrical supply.

Are you using the freeview tuner, I only ask as it looks like your having a similar problem that I had a few months back. I moved into a new house and plugged in the tv. Using the freeview tuner I wasnt able to get any channels. It turned out although the aerial picked up regular analogue tv it wasnt the correct aerial for freeview.

How do you tune in the freeview channels do you need a freeview box?

if you are using a standard television and not connected to FOX or cable then you are already receiving FREEVIEW channels There is no Freeview Box as such. Tivo allows freeview and digital reception maybe that is where you are confused

Freeeview update has not allowed BBC1, BBC2 Channel 7 and 8 to be viwed. They have been deleted from the menu on digital. I can get BBC1 and BBC2 on analog.

Make sure all cables are securely connected to your Freeview Box or Freeview TV before you begin

Do a Factory Reset of your Freeview TV and then do a rescan of new channels. If successfull then all channels should be back and working.

Freeview - No transmitter found

The signal from the communal aerial might be weak, since other people are using it, or it is experiencing interference with a power cable or something.
Try a signal booster from **** Smith or Harvey Norman, RadioShack, Tandy, Walmart etc ( I assume you are Australian - Freeview :) )
Get your own aerial, if you don't live in a concrete shoebox....

Lost channels due to power outage channels were cable. screen is blue for channels we want but on top of screen will give channel# we lost channels 16 & uo.

do you have set top box or basic rescan the channels if its a box call your service provider and since its cable depending on the provider and what type of housing you have it would most likely be the connection out side coming into the house may have a short and will cause channel loss would suggest making them fix it make sure it is not only that tv first also

20 year old Quasar colour TV (no remote)

That is because the switches of the front panel buttons are stuck or defective.

Try first unplugging power for ten minutes, this probably wont work.

To fix this the TV must be taken apart from an expert, and front panel replaced.

You can enquiry here for parts.

What you can do at home, is getting a replacement remote and using TV with a remote, or buying a freeview box, and watching and changing channels through the box.

You can get a replacement remote here: Replacement Remote Control orReplacement Remotes

My suggestion, if it is supported in your area, get a set top box with 30 channels : Freeview - digital TV from Argos.

No sound

If I remember correctly, this model can only have sound from either the SCART or the standard input. The solution for this set is to have all the devices work through a common A/V switch box.

The best solution is to update the set to one with more active inputs that are adequate for your needs.
