Hi, right now as your plugging it in via the aerial socket then this means you wont be using any of the input channels or source channels such as av ok.

now what you can try is when its plugged in and switched on go through the channels on the telly using the telly remote try channels you dont use such as 0 6 7 8 9 10 if after trying these you still have no picture then you need to put the telly on a channel you dont use say 0 then make sure ps is switched on with a game in then on telly remote choose menu or setup then you need to use the tv setup function to search the frequency as if you are tuning a channel in so do this till you see the game then store it onto that channel, now when ever you want to play the ps you just plug it in and put it on the channel you tuned in.

or an easier option would be to go to the well known auction site and buy a ps1 scart lead then when you plug this into your telly you just choose av1 or av2 and then you can play it without tuning the channel in so this owuld be the easiest way

let me know if you have any problems

I have an old school Curtis mathes TV for my son Xbox 360 can not get right channel no code works any suggestion


The XBOX360 does not connect via any RF channels (TV aerial). It connects through either the analogue video & audio inputs e.g. SCART or PHONO connectors, or via HDMI (which will not be supported on your old TV). If you have connected via the SCART or PHONO type then you can select 'AV' or 'EXT' via the remote to get input from the SCART/PHONO.

Why can't my TV find a digital signal when connected to my digital ready aerial? Tuning for digital stations finds none. Does this TV require a set top box? If not how can I make it find and play n


hey, when connect any aerial in the back of the TV make sure you have a look for the name of the connection you use ( Skart,ext1,ext2,usb,hdmi1, hdmi2 etc.) so you can do a search on that extension. if you connect something on Hdmi1 and search on hdmi2 you won't find anything. you have to search on Hdmi1. PS: good luck.

My grandma has recently been gifted a Polaroid TV as a Christmas gift. When the free view channels had the TV reset she lost the signal to an outdoor cctv camera for the building. We can't seem to get it...


probably the camera is either analogue or video . How was it connected to the TV via the Aerial Cable or via an AV input
If the camera is Analogue it may be on a ATV channel. So you would need to switch the input Source on the remote for the tv and check the ATV channels. If it was on a AV then try checking the AV input sources.
The free view channels is probably DTV source . .

No picture just av1


If the cat sat on the remote, it is likely it changed the tv to AV1. Just find the AV button on the remote and press it again and again. It should cycle through the different AV channels your TV has - my TV has 6 AVs, 2 HDMI and a PC channel so if yours is anything like mine, you may need to press several time to get back to your Sky/freesat/virgin box. Alternatively, some HDMI connected kit just needs turning off and on. That then sends a signal to the TV which changes the TV automatically. For example, my Blu-ray player does that.
Experience - I have a cat that sits on my remote and does the same thing!!

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

While watching tv No Signal box appeared on the screen. tried to auto tune but to no avail tv is a 22" LG connectoin is aireal which is ok for digital


Hi, it maybe the TV transmitter has gone off air temporarily check with a neighbour, check that all connections and cables are undamaged and aerial plug has a good connection and if you have an aerial amplifier make sure that its switched on, if you live in a communial building check with you neighbours, again it could be the buildings distribution system down.

Otherwise it could be a problem with the tv internally.

P.S. check the tv is not in AV mode by selecting the AV button or making sure that DTV is selected.

hope this helps.

Please let me know the outcome, Thankyou.

Just got logik ldvr 1608 dvd but it cant find any


You need an aerial to tune the freeview.
However, to record from satelite you can connect a scart lead from the satelite vcr out to the dvd in and it will record vie the av "channel" on the dvd.
Depending on your location, regarding signal strength, you can purchase an indoor, boosted aerial to tune the freeview.
Also, if the scart connection on the dvd is a 2 way connection( allowing a signal to the tv as well as from the tv) you can connect the tv to the satelite and the dvd to the satelite only and the dvd will play through the satelite even when the satelite is off.

My TV is stuck on video and i don't have the original remote


Most TV have controls on them - usually hidden on front of the TV via pull down flap. Worth checking the side and top of TV if you cant find it on front .

When youve located the controls - press the source or AV button to reach the channel you want. If you not sure about the button go for the one indicated by a square box symbol.

If theres no control panel on your TV then try unplugging it and leaving it for a few hours. Disconnect any devices (such as DVD/VCR player, consoles etc) just leave your aerial/cable/digibox plugged hopefully your TV will have no choice but to pick up TV channels once its switched on.




All the best
