Connection problems with Philips DTR220

Having connected up a Philips DTR220 to get freeview, I cannot access any freeview channels. A message appears saying no signal, check antenae and cable. I've checked and am in a freeview reception area, my tv aerial which was in the attic is now high up on an outside wall but I'm still getting the same message. No problem at all with terrestial tv. Any ideas? Do I need a digital aerial (is there such a thing)?

There is such a thing as a HD areial, but in this case it sounds like you need to point the antenna in the right direction. If your freeview is digital then there is a diredtion the areial needs to piont, and there is a front and a back to it. You need to find where the signal source is located and point the areial in that direction.

Can you tell me how to tune in a channel when ppreparing to use a freeview box on a onyx sw 1536 ld


Unless you've got an "expensive" Freeview box that modulates its output on to the RF (Aerial) connector then you can't. Most Freeview boxes have 2 aerial connectors - 1 IN from the Aerial itself and 1 OUT to connect to the TV - BUT this is ONLY a PASS-THROUGH connection. This means that the digital Freeview signal which is decoded from the aerial signals is NOT output on the OUT connector and sent down the co-axial cable to your TV. Only the "old" ANALOGUE (not Freeview NON DIGITAL) comes down that co-ax. What you should do is connect the Freeview box to your TV with a SCART cable via the SCART connectors on both. You need to select the AV input on the TV using the remote.
Even if you do have an "expensive" box that does modulate the digital decoded programmes and output these of the RF OUT connector, you should still use a SCART cable as the picture produced will be far better
Hope this helps

All freeview channels except BB1, BBc2, ch7, ch70 and ch 80, have been lost overnight. I have tried to re-install but nothing happens, and a message keeps coming up saying that the channels are not found...


i doubt it, i think there maybe a network problem, just hang on and see if they come back.
I'm on cable and that sometimes happends to me, what i do first is unplug the freview from the mains for 10 mins


kind regards

I have a Wharfedale Digital Freeview Receiver LPDV832B, having set this up following the instructions provided it appears I am not receiving all the freeview channels available ie BBC1, please advise.


It is very possible that you require an aerial upgrade to receiver all the digital channels available, you should check with a local aerial installer.

After attaching a freeview box to my Acoustic Solutions LCD32NK750HD 32" inch LCD HD TV the picture started to scramble and **** about the screen, this would stop when I turn the TV off and back on...


How have you got freeveiw connected to your set and what input are you using?
when connecting the freeveiw unit to the tv did you have the power connected and turned on to either tv or freeveiw?
how many sets are connected to the freeveiw unit,
All these things can affect this equation,

it sounds like the set had a power surge from the plugging in of the freeview,
the f connection output from the freeveiw set has a live voltage feed that powers either the mast head amp or the balun in the center of the dish,
for these to work correctly the cable between the freeveiw and the aerial/dish needs power,
this annoying little fault can only be remedied by taking it to the repair man,

Let us know the outcome thanks ,
hope this helps,

No channels can be detected have tried 2 Daewoo DS608P boxes connected to same telly but same thing happens. Signal strength seems fine boxes have been working fine for years.


I am the same. Not a sausage from my same model Daewoo freeview box today. Scans and re-scans and not a single channel to be detected.

I connected my Philips DVDR 3576H to my Sony Bravia TV and it looks like connection doesn't work. I used cables provided by Philips but I can not get access to this empty channel, on which I could get the...


The source is E1, unless you are trying to display something froma camcorder or security cam.
Philips does not provide enough cables with this product - they only provide you one set with which to PLAY a movie. You will need another red, white and yellow cable with which to RECORD. If you have a cable/satellite box, connect a 2nd red, white and yellow cord from cable box OUT to Philips AV IN. Switch the SOURCE on the Philips remote to E1, and your TV to whichever source you have the original red, white and yellow plugged into. You should get picture, and be able to record now.

I cant get past the blue screen that appears when turn my television on


Make sure your cable or satellite box is turned ON before you try this:

If you have a cable box or satellite box plugged to this television with a regular cable wire, press 0-3 on your Philips remote (unless you have a dual tuner system - in which case, you will have to press Ch + on the Philips remote until you find the right channel).

If you have any other connection, press the AV+ or SOURCE button on the Philips until you see your cable or satellite box.

This is the best I can tell you without knowing your exact model # of TV.

I have two problems with my DTR220 freeview digital box. Firstly every night at 11pm it stops working and I have to turn on & off the power to get it back. Secondly, The BBC 1, 2,3 channels...


First I would move the box closer to the booster (amplifier) if its furthest away from it. Do you have another box you can swap out in that location to see if the problem is the signal for some reason? I am not familiar with the boxes but, is it possible at 11 PM they are doing guide updates or possible software updates at that time? I know that here in the U.S. our two satelitte companies do guide and software updates but, those usually occur in the early morning hours of 2 AM. Hopefully that helps.

Same problem with Channel 71 CBeebies. Tried rescanning which worked initially for a few weeks but it's back and rescanning does not fix the problem now.
