Philips DTR220/05 digital freeview reciever not recieving anymore

Hey guys. for some reason, over night, this box has stopped recieving our previous full channel list and now only lets us watch bbc 1 and 2...nothing more! out of 72 previous channels.

restored back to factory settings, searched for software updates and still nothing.

its simply happened over night!

i know the information maybe a bit vague but thats all i can give at this time :(

    i ran the first time instilation again, twice and had the same effect. (only found 6 channels, and 2 radio)



    i took out the signal amp from the aerial and splugged it directly into box, same reception. Plugged aerial into back of tv, crap picture but reception.



    so, this leave me wondering as weather it is something to do with a service issue.



    on the otehr hand, my housemate downstairs using a different freeview box, is having no problems apart from a few signal losses during viewing.

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.

    If the reception is the same without the signal amp, then its possibly the amp at fault.



    Try your box on your housemates aerial point & TV.



    The Philips DTR210 & 220 both have a more sensitive tuner than older models, and so, should give best possible reception.

Recieving no digital channels in my LCD TV


hi there alot of the updates for the system should automaticly download via ariel to the tv to keep you up to date some times if the strenght of the signal isnt srong enough then you might not get the update they send out , one thing i have found is that if you use an ariel booster then this makes the signal stronger this helps particularly if you have more than one tv set up with the same ariel, you could try unpluging all ariels to other tvs making sure the ariel lead you are using has no conections in it as this also gives you loss of signal if there are multiple conections in the lead runing from the ariel to your tv set hope this helps some

Cheers ;)

Cannot find freeview/digital on our new TV


You can only get the freeview / digital channels through cable by subscribing to a package which includes them. They will then supply the necessary decoder to get the channels. Otherwise you will need a digital aerial and a freeview box if you tv is not dtv ready.

How can I get Freeview Channels?


I have a Bush 6690D and I can confirm that it does have a built-in digital decoder for terrestrial signals (Freeview).

Have you checked whether ***********'s TV is set to digital mode ? The "Mode" button on the remote cycles between analog, digital and AV inputs.

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
