    Daewoo DS608P - Working fine then as of 31st July 2008, no channels found. Location Borehamwood. There appears to be no solution either as it seems that this unit is suddenly uncompatible due to signal changes.

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.

Recently installed two Philco TB100HH9 Converter boxes. Both worked well at first then both lost a major local TV station within days and cannot reprogram it into the box. Have two other TV's without a...


I just had a similar problem with this box - For the first month or two, I got the local NBC affiliate (KING-5 in Seattle) just fine on 5.1, then, after fiddling with my antenna setup, I lost it completely - NOTHING I could do would get it back. I tried a bunch of stuff - Multiple types of antenna, adding an antenna amp box, a handful of "homebrew" antennas - Nada. Yet all my other channels came in fine (although a couple were right on the edge - This box seems to need a "17" or higher on the signal strength - Some of my channels were reading in the 15-18 range, and suffering the "blockies" and sound dropout)

After hitting TVfool.com, found out that the KING digital signal is actually broadcasting on channel 48. Punched in 48.1, and there it was, clear as a bell, using nothing but a "wick" antenna (Basically, strip 4-1/4 inches of the outer braid off one end of a piece of co-ax cable, leaving the center wire alone, then plug the other end into the box) getting me a 23 signal strength. But a second or two later, the box is displaying "5.1" - Weirdness...

Reconnected a near top-of-the-line Winegard Yagi/Log-periodic antenna - VERY directional, and has some gain all by itself - and the signal jumped above 50.

Still couldn't "channel-up/channel-down" or punch in "5.1" to tune it, though - Channel 5.x was a "dead zone" as far as the box was concerned.

Re-did the "autoscan", and now, it's back to normal - I can channel-up/channel-down to it at 5.1, or I can punch it in as 5.1, or I can punch it in as 48.1, and it's all good.

So, try re-doing the auto-scan. Worked for me...

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

I recently bought a converter box DTA800 to go with my sony tv Triniton mod.KV-20FV300. It doesn't seem to work; programing, set-up. Please advise.


Ah, the problem is likely your antenna. Make sure everything is properly hooked up, and that your TV is on and turned to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever the unit requires, or you can try both and see which works) then turn the converter on, and check the manual that came with it for a way to check for your antenna's signal strength.

If your signal is good, then use the menu button on the remote and look for an "autoscan" feature, or "autoprogramming", something along those lines, and let the unit look for channels for you (mine requires this before you can use it, not that it matters because my antenna signal is weak). From there you can access the channels manually.

Hope this helps.

Bought freeview thomson dti6300 and installed. only have 66 of the 88 channels it found. these channels are all bbc ones and itv, c4 and other channels i got with old box. is there an update later on?


hi alot of people have been having this problem when they change boxes it seems that some of them dont have as much good signal as other boxes the best solution would be to buy an arieal booster to boost the signal strength.
Have you tried researching again just to see if it picks them up.

Also if you can get to your arial easily then moving it slghtly can improve the signal but can also make things worse but you can try just remember where it was when you started.
Failing that then an arial booster would be the best option
