This neat little TV works fine from my home aerial on freeview, but when I try to tune it to terrestial TV, it only finds channels 1,4 and 5.
When I watch it auto tuning, it finds channel 3, but doesn't store it.
I have set it to PAL-I, which I believe is correct for the UK.
I have another TV which works fine on my home aerial.
Any advice would be welcome........
I returned my original TV/DVD to the suppliers who then sent me a new one.
I experienced exactly the same tuning problem with the new TV.
The only way I could tune it, was by using the fine tune facility to find and store the missing stations. This took a lot of time and continuous button pushing, so patience is essential.
Once found and stored, the previously missing channels are perfect.
It would appear that the DVD player doesn't like DVD- recordings from my home recorder. If they are re-coded they work.
Anything recorded on DVD+ is fine.
In my opinion this is a good unit let down by a couple of niggling faults.

If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions
You require a satelite decoder/receiver for your dish and an aerial for your TV. The choice is yours. Plug a satelite receiver, for freesat, into the A/V input on the TV or have an aerial installed for freeview.
Plug your aerial into the freeview box. Connect a scart lead from the freeview box to your TV and switch on. The freeview box, if new, will search for channels itself and as your TV will recognise that it is plugged in, will auto switch to the freeview box. If it is not new, select menu on the freeview box and follow the instructions for tuning. There is nothing to tune on your TV as you are using a scart lead. Hope that helps.
It's not clear what you mean! So one of these answer might solve it. If you are talking VCR recording it must either have a freeview tuner or have a freeview box connected to it via a scart. Otherwise it will only record the five terrestial.
Digital TV -you must have a good aerial otherwise you will not pick up all the stations. If it has a hard disc drive the same will apply.
If the terrestial stations have any grain or the picture is not as clear as a bell on all, then your aerial will not be good enough. The type of aerial should be for freeview. See image below also you need to have CT100 cable (the stuff used for satellite) not the old brown co-axial cable (see below).
Ensure you have a working aerial connected to the back of your TV.
With you Tv remote press the tv button, then MENU go down to setup and then to auto tune. Once this has auto tuned. then press your DTV (freeview) on the remote then press the MENU button then go to setup and then auto tune. This will do the same as before but with your built in freeview.
