SOURCE: cant retune my digtal freeview as my picture keeps freezing

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.

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:

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

My 32inch Murphy LCD TV can not find the new


This could be a problem to do with your aerial rather than the TV. However, your first action should be a "Factory Defuault" reset. Make sure the TV does a full retune rather than just looking at the channels where the stations were previously.

The TV will have a flat response through the channel frequency range. Your aerial though could be a very different matter. Depending on the type of aerial, and especially if it's a banded aerial that discriminates against certain frequencies, then the retune may well have moved certain channel into frequencies that your current aerial really struggles to pick up.

You don't say what your TV region is, so I can't be specific because you didn't give the necessary information in the question. But I'll give you an example based on my region which is North West England, receiving off the Winter Hill transmitter.

Anyone with a Group C/D banded aerial will be okay picking up most of the channel muxes because they're grouped up at the top end of the frequency range (ch 49~57). That's pretty perfect for a C/D aerial. However, the new Freeview HD channels that give BBC 4 HD, 4 +1HD, BBC News HD is down at ch 37. A C/D aerial will struggle to pick that up because it is far less sensitive at that frequency, and particularly so if it is a contract Yagi type aerial.

The majority of aerials fitted though are the so-called Wideband High Gain. These favour the upper end of the frequency range again. So channel 37 will be picked up. But is is much weaker than the other muxes.

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!

it's the aerial, tv has nothing to do with channels. it's the signal that carries the channels. i'm pretty sure if you had it hooked up to a cable box, you'll get all the channels, so i'm sure your tv is fine. i would double check on the aerial and positioning the attenna has some factor into it.

Cannot get any digital channels since local digital switch over


The official line on this is that you should try and retune again, but there are some Panasonic models with similar model numbers to yours which have been specifically identified as having incompatibility problems with the Freeview retune.

However, your model is definitely not one which appears on the problem list, so it's worth checking that your aerial wasn't misaligned or damaged during the gales last weekend. In addition the Winter Hill transmitter is currently undergoing work until December which will significantly boost the digital signal and give it HDTV capability, so your box may have have been knocked out of kilter if the current digital service was temporarily operating at restricted capacity. Digital signals are by their nature much weaker than analogue tv and if you have a marginal aerial system which has been up for many years and which feeds a number of televisions in the house then it's definitely a good idea to see about upgrading your aerial system.

The difference in actual parts costs between a top spec aerial system and a poor one are surprisingly low, it's also easily possible with careful design and installation to get a better performance with poor parts than you can get with a poorly designed and installed system using top quality parts. One thing does hold true though: a well designed and installed system using poor parts will only last a few years before needing serious attention but a proper job can last up to thirty years.

If you're sure about your aerial system and retuning does not help, then you'll need to contact Panasonic directly. The first web address below will give you their contact number along with a list of Freeview boxes with known retune issues. A second web address which I've given takes you to an excellent Sheffield based tv aerial company which has an incredibly informative website.

Lost bbc1 on digital only. retune and factory rest fail to fix problem. bbc1 received by another digibox on same aerial.


Try retuning again and then look at the EPG as it may be allocated to a different number than you are used to. If so then you will need to edit your channel list.
