Question about Sony KDL-26S2010 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Hi I have just retuned my tv but have found that the identity number(ie BBC1 is D.001, ITV is D.003) for channel 5 is D.800 which Guide plus uses but the TV recognises channel 5 as 005! therefore I cannot set up a recording from the Guide plus channel 5. How can I change the Guide plus channel 5 id from D.800 to D.005? Thanks

The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

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.

On my Techwood it as built in freeview but every other channel is right except bbc1 and bbc2 both channels say bbc wales,How do i get them back to bbc1 and bbc2 please PLEASE HELP.THANK YOU.


What you need to do is retune the TV, but when it is finished look at the regional settings. Or if the regional option is available before retuning, retune selecting your area so then you get normal BBC channels. It's likely that at the moment the channels for BBC are located at the very top end of the channel list say? - channel 800+.

You are clearly picking up signals from many transmitters. With regional settings you can change it to the area you live in.
But you will have to take into account how good your aerial is. Otherwise the signal quality will not be good on same transmitters. So the set may only suggest those with the best quality signals.
ITV stations might also change.
When done it will move the channels you mention to the top end of the guide, to 800+.

Note many HD channels have no regional options. For example here in Yorkshire we only get ITV Granada and not Yorkshire TV on the HD channel for ITV1. And BBC1HD does not show any programmes when local news comes on.

My humax won't;t record bbc channels. I have tried retuning the tv.


This could be too much signal thanks to the Freeview retunes going on. Your aerial is more sensitive at some frequencies, so there's more signal power higher up the frequency range. The signals for BBC and ITV are among the strongest ones broadcast. If they are now at a point on the aerial's range where they are too strong for the TV then the tuner will over-saturate. The result is the same as no signal.


Have a look online for a Variable Signal Attenuator. It's a device that can be added to a aerial signal cable just before it goes in to the tuner. The adjuster allows the signal level to be reduced. Watch the TV's signal quality and signal level displays if it has them. As signal level (power) reduces you'll actually see signal quality increase. If you go too far then quality will start to go down again. The optimum point is where quality is highest.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

I have tried to retune my tevion lcd 1507id because of the change in the granada area. The tv retuned but i have no itv, channel4 or channel 5


These will have been rolcated to a different channel number. You can select the programme guide & scroll through all the channels until you find thier new location number, then you could either take note of these new numbers or go into the set up menu where you can re-arrange the channel numbers back to 4/5 etc or set them on your favourites listings

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
