Philips digital freeview receiver DTR25/20 with card slot

Box locks up {freezes} have to switch off for at least 6 minutes before I can switch on again, then just repeat over again it seems as if something gets hot and then needs to cool down before it is ok again.
No apparent sign of any excessive heat feeling the top of unit.
Remote and batterys ok, when it freezes station can be changed with manual buttons on Box but no teletext.
EW,,,,,,, any idea`s? Box is only 5 month old.

Why wont my tv tune in the digital chanels using just an Ariel, its a Grundig about 6 years old.

Unless you have built in freeview then you won't be able to receive digital channels. Sounds like that's the problem here.
You'll need to buy a separate freeview box, you can get a basic model for ~£20.

I do not get any channel when i search even though all the connections are ok

Is this an analogue or digital tv tuner card.
If it is not a digital tv tuner card you wont get any channels.
UK has gone fully digital now and you need a digital receiver(freeview)
If it is a digital receiver you may just have a poor signal from your ariel

Cant get my bt vision [freeview] to come on. my box doesnot let me view freeview . on my bt vision box.

This system can only be used if you subscribe to BT Vision.
They have it configured so that Freeview only works once the box has checked your subscription.
I think this is a bit mean of BT because with their system Freeview is not free as you cannot access it without paying the monthly fee.

I Bought a Goodmans 250Gb Digital Freeview box in

As it's only May, I would take it straight back to the shop and demand a new one/alternative.

If it is bust, and it's in warranty, I certainly wouldn't try and fix it as you may invalidate the warranty by opening the case to check wires etc.

If the picture & sound are ok in analogue mode then chances are you have problem with digital tuner.
This may be expensive to repair so I would advise connect external freeview box or sky etc to get digi channels using scart to connect to your TV.

Philips DTR220/05 digital freeview reciever not recieving anymore

If the box is still receiving some channels, then the box is probably not at fault.

If you have done the full "First time Installation" rather than search for new channels, then eithe the aerial, connection or signal is likely to be to blame.

There have been several changes with the Freeview service over the last few months, and there will be more in the run up to analogue switch off.

In some cases, channels have moved, and in other cases the service has been switched off for a short period, low power etc.

Check the aerial on a standard analogue signal, if the quality is poor, then this rules out the box.
