Did a search and found out that my digibox along with some other makes are no longer able to receive any channels because of an update by Freeview.This has resulted in thousands of people unable to receive any programmes at all in Scotland as their signals are all digital in some regions,I live in Durham and the changes have already reached here.This is being rolled out down the country over the next week.
No doubt we will not hear anything in the news about this change untill it reaches London,then people will be concerned.

We have a toshiba tv it's about 5 years old. Today we noticed a green tint to the screen tried everything in the TV settings with no effect. Is it broken or can we fix it?


In the first instance, when a digital tv starts, or appears to be starting to go wrong, the first thing you should do is reset it to factory default. That will cause a reversion to factory settings which sould be correct. If, after a resett, a problem persists it will usually be a hardware fault.
You could also check the tv with just the aerial/antenna attached to it in case an attached device has caused the effect. The aerail/antenna can also be checked by attaching another set to it to check it's own functionality.
It may be that the set is suffering from interfrerence from a device/field of some kind. Try moving it away from it's current location.
As regards repairing should it prove a fault, it probably can be repaired but economics obviously determine whethere it is sensible to go down the repair rather than replacement avenue.

I have a Panasonic tv model TH 42PZ80B; a Panasinic Blu-Ray dvd model DMP-BD50; a sky box (not as yet HD) and a Sony video SLV-SE 830G. I have a Satellite dish and a normal TV aerial. In the loft I have a...


You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

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

RECENTY PURCHASED SECOND HAND TV WITHOUT REMOTE OR HANDBOOK CANNOT SEEM TO SET UP MY SKY BOX TO IT ANY SUGGESTIONS?


Does the S/H TV have AV1 & AV2 settings and a scart socket? If so just connect the a scart lead from Sky box to TV and select AV1.

If you have no scart socket on the TV you need to connect a coaxial (aerial) cable from the sky box to TV and tune in to a channel. It is possible to tune in your sky remote if you have the TV code.

Do not understand how to set up my alba digi box to my television and recieve basic digital channels help!


Hi.

Ok
1) plug aerial in to the antena in sock on freeview box.
2) plug short aerial type lead in to rf out socket on freeview & antena in socket on TV.
3) plug A scart lead in to the socket marked TV on freeview box & the other end of scart in to one of the scart sockets on the TV.
If your TV has more than one socket plug it into the one marked AV1 or AV2.

4) plug in freeview to mains electricity & switch box on.
5) Turn TV on freeview should appear automatically if it doesnt look on your TV remote for A button marked AV or a button with either A circle or square with an arrow going through it you may need to press this several times until you see digi picture come up.
Thats basically it but do check that you dont need a new aerial etc to be able to get digi signal in your area.

Tv-- signal strength normal but signal on all channels "blipping" down intermittently causing freezing of picture. Have replaced aerial with high gain antennae together with aerial cable and...


When ever the picture freezes intermittendly the problem is usually poor connection on the signal line (antenna or connection on tv) or poor reception. Could be the tuner if the tv has one.To eliminate the tuner possibility try anther tv set if possible.
If you still cannot figure out the problem,let me know what kind of set up you have connected to your tv set.
Do you have a satellite or cable box and if you have splitters.

In London, Uk. I have poor reception of channel 5. have got recently a one for all powered aerial. how do I set it up? Model sv-9140-00-002


Your reception would be much improved by using a free to air digital set top box - only about £20. If you are in east London especially near docklands channel 5 reception with a conventional aerial gives a lot of problems. sv-9140-00-002 is an interior aerial booster - I doubt whether this will improve things much. Best solution is a good outside aerial - if you live in flats is there no communal aerial available?
