Hi.
Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.

SOURCE: No BBC channels available after retuning Sony Trinitron TV

When TV channels are moved from one frequency to another frequency that was previously used by a different channel (sorry, but there's no simple way of saying that !) as has happened recently in th UK, some digital TVs and digiboxes struggle to sort the channel list out properly and channels can go missing as you describe.

If your equipment has the option to delete all currently stored channels (normally in the tuning menu options) then do so and then do a full re-tune.
Sometimes, this solves the problem as the equipment is no longer aware of any previous use of a frequency and just loads every channel it finds.

If this doesnt work, or your equipment doesnt have the option, then there is normally the option soemwhere in the menus to retore the item to "factory defaults/configuration". This will clear all previously stored channels and after a full re-tune your missing chanels should be there. However, any other configuration changes you previously made, e.g picture size, output type (RGB/NSCT/etc), etc will be lost and you'll need to set these again.

NB. some regions of the country have lost some channels temporarily now until after the switch over programme completes at the end of 2012. If you visit the Freeview website, this will tell you if your area is affected.

SOURCE: unable to retune digital stations on sony

Open the drop-down panel on the front of the set and push the recessed button using a pen or similar item. The retune screen will ask if you want to rotate the picture, press OK which brings up the retune screen iteself. Press OK for auto retune to start

Freeview


I think you are here in good old Oz?

Freeview is a collective advertising name for free-to-air stations, as opposed to Pay TV like Foxtel. So if you can already watch Ch 2, 7, 9, 10 etc etc through the STB you are watching Freeview.

About the only thing different in a Freeview STB from any other STB is that they disable any features which allow you to skip the advertising.

If you can't get a picture yet you should hook up the STB to the aerial as shown in the user guide, and then connect the aerial socket of the TV to the STB. Then turn it all on and select "Search" from the Menu on screen.

The STB should then find all clear stations you can get, and arrange them just as in the TV Guides.

We are unable to receive radio stations on our recently purchase lcd26advd, is this tv set up or how it should be. The instruction manual makes no mention of radio stations.


Digital TVs or set-top boxes only receive the digital TV signals not the digital radio signals. To receive digital radio, you need a digital radio (DAB+) receiver. The ABC does broadcast two of its digital radio music stations-ABC Dig Music and ABC Jazz-on digital TV and they are available on channels 200 and 201.
If this is helpful a vote of the thumbs up would be appreciated

I have re-tuned my TU-CT20 Panasonic set top box several times, successfully in that I have a new list of stations, but every time BBC1 and BBC2 are omitted. It starts with ITV1 at channel 1.


If you have all the cahnnels updated then you will have to manually edit the station list and change the order of the channels. refer to your manual for instructions.
