    Thanks for your comments. I notice by searching that at least 2 other owners have this problem but have not been given answers on the forums.

    I have tried the TV on 2 different aerials and other TV's - run a B&B- so not the aerial- Not on cable. So if bad DTV tuner what options have I?

Ok do you have a aerial antenna or are you using your cable service provider?

Possible causes:
1. aerial antenna not DTV compatible
2. You using your cable providers DTV traffic that is locked
3. you got a bad DTV tuner in the tv.

There are good antennas that WORK with this rollover

If you in a rural area where the DTV conversion hit you may need to BOOST that signal. Make no mistake here not all antenna's work for the new DTV signal trust me I have done my homework and research.

Now in rare instances here your tuner could be the issue so I would check that as well.

Now if you using you cable providers signal from there cable plant you need to call them to ask if they do or do not block those signal until you get a converter. See this is the issue with cable companies they want you to rent there box. fight with them hard enough they will left the restrictions on your line.

I gave you 3 scenarios and 3 solutions. I hope these find you a resolve.

    I can give you several options:

    1. $60 bucks radio shack external DTV tuner can hooke up to a RCA in the back or to a standard DEF co-axe connection.

    2. Repair of the TV $250 for your part labor might be a little high at the time of this economic down spiral.

    3. Hate me! A new TV $600-infinity almost ;) Depends on what flavor tv you want.

    Roll your dice, Pick whats behind whatever door 1,2 or 3 but there all options and they are on the table and they do satisfy just like a nice butter finger bar. (being sacarastic)

    Hope this helps please press the accept button for my efforts.

    Well Humax might not have been the brand for you. I heard about them but saw lots of issues in the past with them nto just with DTV tuners but other issues.

Hi there I have a humax lu20-td2 won't scan for channels

If it wont scan anything, you possibly have a broken tuner. On some models you can change the tuner yourself , on others you will need to send back the unit for repair.
If its build in then forget about the " diy" repair, however if you see 2 screws (each one on the left and right side of the cable input) you can take the faulty tuner out, and replace it with a new one.

I have a Humax LU23 TD2 television and have now got Sky tv. I would like to know how to use the Sky remote to control all the functions such as power on, volume etc. for the tv. Can you help...

These are the setup processes for Sky TV.

Follow the steps below

1. Select any channel on the TV.

2. Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.

3. Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.

4. Input the 3 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.

5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.

If this works try the other TV functions.

If these work then the correct code has been selected.

It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.

If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 - 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky+ remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press "TV" followed by the "Stand-by" button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the "Sky" button followed by the "TV guide" button.
