    Thanks again for your help,but I do have dishnetwork now. The problem came about when I became unable to continue the service,due to financial problems. The satellite is still hooked up but only can

    watch ppv sport channels,previewchannels,shoppingchannels.and nature and sceince channels. There are no basic channels like cbs,nbc,fox,upn,abc,and cw. What do I need to do now?

    I know this is a problem but any advice is will take.



    Sincererly,

The Model D10 and D12 recievers cannot record shows.They are not DVR's. You could hook up a DVD/VCR recorder to them to record shows. You would need to call DirectTV and upgrade your recievers to DVR capable ones.

    let me know if you need instructions on how to hook a dvd/vcr recorder to them or have other questions.

  • muebe Oct 02, 2009

    You can only use those recievers with directTV and they will not work with cable or any other dish service. So if you do not have DirectTV then those recievers cannot be used. Do you have cable now or another satellite provider like Dish Network? If so you can contact them to get a DVR reciever. DVR recievers have a built in drive and can automatically record shows and movies for you...but they are only available thru your provider.

    The only way you are going to get basic channels is thru the cable service,satellite service, or over the air with an antenna. If you live in a major city you might be able to get those basic channels from an antenna on the roof of your house and a digital converter box. You can apply for the $40 dollar coupon from the goverment web site and the boxes usually cost $50...so you will spend $10 after the coupon. Otherwise cable and satellite will charge you for even the basic channels...CBS,NBC,ABC ect.

Not enough info in your Q to help you.

1) What's the source?; TV tuner (digital terrestrial, cable, satellite. Internal or external tuner/receiver box)

2) One channel - some channels - or all channels affected?

3) Just this TV, or are other TVs affected in the house too

4) Are your neighbours having the same issues?

5) What have you done so far to troubleshoot the problem yourself? (retuned, checked cables, checked signal level, realigned aerial/antenna etc)

Have problem with Philips On digital terrestrial receiver (DV3). Since the digital switchover in Bolton, where I live, it wont let me do an update. Can't get any channels now. Stewart


Try unplugging the unit from the wall, unplug the Aerial cable from the box. Plug the mains back in and switch on. Do a channel scan (with the aerial still unplugged). Reconnect aerial and do another scan. With luck it will have flushed the old settings and pick up the channel changes.

I had all 5 terrestrial channels on channels 1 to 5 on my television and Virgin channels on channel 6. I was sitting watching the television when all 5 channels stopped working and I am left with the...


I don,t where you live & therefore I don't know which transmitter you will be picking but this sounds as if your local transmitter has now stopped transmitting the analogue signal. You maybe aware from a lot of advertising that this form of signal will be getting turned off in different areas around the country so unless you have cable or a digi-box or a digital TV then you will not receive any signal. As you have the Virgin box you will still receive channels 1 to 5 on digital but not on analogue.

I cant receive freeveiw channels


I don't know what make of TV you have but some manufacturers have two tuners at the rear of the TV. One for terrestrial signal & one for digital signal. If this is the case put the aerial into the digital input & try retuning. If this does not work then if you could provide the details of you TV eg. make & model, then I will try to help you further.

Digital Converter Box


Hi William

You TV is able to receive Free to air Terrestrial Analog broadcasts by just connecting the antenna. However if you wish to receive Digital Terrestrial broadcasts (DVB), you need to obtain a digital receiver for Terrestrial Digital Broadcasts. It can be easily connected to your TV.
