    Is it the Xbox that says you have freeview? Can you delete freeview from xbox if it's there?

Although the Freeview box is correctly installed with my TV,when the men button is pressed the only message to appear on the TV screen is No Signal,HELP!!


Ok, if you have "No Signal" that can only mean you must be selecting the wrong INPUT, when it is hooked up yo the TV, essentially the TV, is just a Display Monitor, and it doesn't use "Channels" anymore, it uses the AV, or EXTERNAL Inputs, any channel changing is done on the Freeview box. Make sure you are connected color to color, cables are connected. The antenna, goes into the freeview, the AV cables go to TV, taking the Video 7 Audio, from the Freeview box, to the "Screen" TV, set to the External input, that the "Box" has been connected too. Check your manual out.

Problem with digital tv


The Antenna may be in a weak signal area heres a quick cheap fix
Get a Freeview Box and connect it via SCART LEAD to your tv, if the Box picks up a good signal then your tuner may be very weak..
You may want to try a BOOSTER to the TV first, and if that fails go with an external freeview. My neighbor has a 42 and the freeview box WITHOUT an antenna attached resolves all the channels..so give that a try. I have a goodmans too with a slow tuner and I have to retune it sometimes even though it gets a good signal from the antenna. I will be getting an external tuner freeveiw box.

if you have connected your sky box as per instructions, putting the aerial coax to it and a fly lead(as in a male to female coax as used on a vcr to tv) from the output to the tv's aerial input, then disconnect the aerial from the sky box and put it back to the tv. The skybox will weaken and even loose the signal.

Built in freeview doesn't work but digibox does


Have you done a channel search on both tv sources(atv and dtv). most new tv's will automatically start will "New Install". If you havent had a digital installed recently then this could the problem. set top boxes and TV's will pick up the signal ok but others wont.

Acer L5100 and TV Tuner


Try normal arial first.
If OK, try freeview box again.
Check what tuner card you have fitted in Device Manager and check specs on google. Can it receive satellite freeview?
May be new drivers - check Tuner card website for driver updates and latest info.
reply back with what card is fitted.

Yes

If the Freeview box is not connected to the main aerial socket, you cannot get a signal.

Also, you will need a digital aerial, if you don't already have one.
