OK - please follow these instructions carefully to setup the Freeview box. If you get stuck at any point in the instructions - or anything I've said doesn't make sense or match what you can see - just post another message here and I'll deal with each problem as it arises.
1. Switch the TV and Freeview box to STANDBY. There should be a red light on the Freeview box; 2. Connect the aerial cable to the freeview box. Make sure you are connecting this to the correct socket. This should be labelled "RF IN", "IN" or "Aerial/Antenna". If you have connected to a socket marked "RF/TV OUT" or "TO TV" or something similar, it wont work; 3. Connect the SCART cable to Freeview box and the back of the TV; 4. Switch the TV on; 5. Switch the Freeview box on - you should get a green light on the front of the box;
Most TVs will automatically switch to the external input when a SCART device is switched on while the TV is already on. This is why you should switch the TV on first.
At this point you should be able to see the installation / setup screen for the Freeview box displayed on your TV. If you cannot see this:
A. Press the INPUT button once on your SAMSUNG remote control once. This is the button in the top-right corner of your remote control. B. If you still cannot see the installation / setup screen, press the MENU or SETUP button on the remote control supplied with the Freeview box.
The instructions from this point forward will be different if you had to press the MENU / SETUP button on the Freeview remote before anything appeared on the TV screen. If this Freeview box has been used before the installation screen will not appear, but you will get at on-screen menu after pressing the MENU / SETUP button. If this happens, please let me know and I will provide alternative instructions for setup.
Assuming you have been able to access the installation screen, it should be easy enough to follow the instructions on screen from this point. Use the UP / DOWN / LEFT / RIGHT arrow keys on the Freeview remote to highlight the relevant options and then press OK / SELECT to choose that option.
I don't want to make this too complicated by providing alternative instructions for every possible scenario. Please run through the instructions above and make sure you are getting an installation screen or "menu/list" displayed on the TV. If you need further instructions from there, I will provide them in another message.
hi mines is doing same from digital switchover theres a red key flashing and it wont record,although i can still use it as a freeview box.i bought from morrisons but because its just over a year old they told me to phone techwood and techwood told me they only deal with tvs even though its a techwood help number on the box!!
Are you in a poor signal aera? The Lowry box is shockingly bad at picking up low signals. <br />
I had lots of problems with it, including a missing/intermittant itv channel.<br />
I swapped mine for a phillips
There are a few problems turning up as a result of the update. Do a factory settings on the box if it has the option to do so. Be aware of the actual transmitter you are on and the channels/frequencies it uses so when tuning you know whether its finding channels at the bottom, middle or top of the band. Sometimes you may need to unplug the aerial upto or after a particular channel to stop the box tuning unwanted transmitters. If you are picking more than 1 transmitter up you will often get extra channels in wrong locations
You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/ If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box. For troubleshooting the retune procedure visit http://tvretune.co.uk/troubleshooting/ For specific model information visit http://tvretune.co.uk/productmanuals
Have you done a channel search on both tv sources(atv and dtv). most new tv's will automatically start will "New Install". If you havent had a digital installed recently then this could the problem. set top boxes and TV's will pick up the signal ok but others wont.
You can only record freeview channels through your box.
Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:
Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV
To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
