This is a fault of your digital tuner on the mainboard on some models they can be replaced alone others you may need to replace the whole board

How do I set up this TV for receiving digital channels


Hi, it the tv has an integrated digital tuner it is simply a matter of going into the settings menus available from the remote control and electiong autotune, the set should then serach for / intall the chanels and the you will save the search and that is it...done. The set may have the option of eaither digital or analogue reception in which case you should select digital and then search for the tuning options menu in the settings screen.
For people who do not have digital reception, digital channels can be got by obtaining a digibox, a DVB receiver. This would be connected to the tv via a scart lead. On switching the tv and digibix on the box installation guide will take you through the installation procedure. It is all very straightforward

Want to know if u can tape one channel while watching another


I haven't met a DVR or a PVR that doesn't have twin tuners. This is the only way for digital reception to be acceptable for a lot of people used to watching one channel and recording another for the last few decades with analogue tv and the trusty VCR.

You should indeed be able to record one channel while you watch another or if the equipment is of premium quality it is possible you could record two programmes while watching something already recorded.
I hope this helps.

I connected the HD Antenna and did the scan and analog finds zero channels and Digital scan never starts. Does a Vizio GV42L have a tuner? it was built in 2006


Of course, every TV, whether it is digital or analogue will have a tuner. If this tuner get defective, there will be no reception to any channels. Check and replace it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

How do i tune the channels on a toshiba rc3910


Hi
Before tuning the set to auto tune mode, make sure the antenna or cable, whatever may, connected to its appropriate sockets at the back of the set firmly. To make it autotune:

As new services are broadcast, it will be necessary to

re-tune the television in order to view them.

Auto Tuning will completely re-tune the television

and can be used to update the channel list. It is

recommended that Auto Tuning is run periodically to
ensure that all new services are added. All current

channels and settings, i.e. locked channels, will be
lost.

[1] Select the SETUP from the main menu by using

Up or Down buttons. Press OK and Setup menu
will be displayed.

[2] Select the Installation from the Setup menu

by using Up or Down buttons. Press OK and
Installation menu will be displayed.

]3] Select Automatic Channel Scan from the Installation

menu by using Up or Down buttons and press OK.

A screen will appear warning that previous digital

programmes and settings will be deleted. Select Yes
and press OK to continue with the Auto tuning.

The television will start to search for all available

stations.You must allow the television to complete

the search. When the search is complete the Auto

tuning screen will display the total number of
services found.

* After search is completed for digital channels, a

message asking whether to search for analogue
channels appears on the screen

** Press the OK button to search for analogue

channels. The following menu appears on the screen
for analogue channel search
OK.

You mention you have tried a digi box and it made no difference. If on the same aerial point, it will be the aerial. Check the cable as there may be a "ghost" on the digital frequency causing errors and picture freezing.

I have lost digital reception. I can play DVDs and get analogue TV.


You need to make sure your reception is strong enough to receive digital reception otherwise you will only receive analogue reception and dvd playback ability is normally nothing to do with the TV's reception.
Ensure you have strong reception before doing an auto tune to search for the channels. Good luck.

I have just moved house to Reading and previously was able to view freeview tv using my old indoor aerial in my 2nd floor flat in london. This indoor aerial didn't pick up any signals, not even analogue,...


You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

There is not a problem with the TV despite it's age this is can be due to your reception of the digital package for BBC. Have you checked through he full listings? sometimes the BBC channel will be at a different number setting because of the transmitter you are receiving. I assume you are using a digital box, you can enter a menu which will give you an indication of the strength & quality of the incoming signal. Do you pick up some of the other BBC channels such as BBC3 or CBBC? It's possible your aerial strength is a bit weak for the digital BBC package & you may need to have that looked at.

No digital picture on digital TV


Are you getting a snowy picture, If so, you`re still on analogue. If you are on a digital channel with say no signal, you should get a blank screen with either a message saying no signal or a dot on the screen. Ian
