I would try the tv on another known aerial and then re install on the new aerial. as what you describe sound like a signal fault.

On my Techwood it as built in freeview but every other channel is right except bbc1 and bbc2 both channels say bbc wales,How do i get them back to bbc1 and bbc2 please PLEASE HELP.THANK YOU.


What you need to do is retune the TV, but when it is finished look at the regional settings. Or if the regional option is available before retuning, retune selecting your area so then you get normal BBC channels. It's likely that at the moment the channels for BBC are located at the very top end of the channel list say? - channel 800+.

You are clearly picking up signals from many transmitters. With regional settings you can change it to the area you live in.
But you will have to take into account how good your aerial is. Otherwise the signal quality will not be good on same transmitters. So the set may only suggest those with the best quality signals.
ITV stations might also change.
When done it will move the channels you mention to the top end of the guide, to 800+.

Note many HD channels have no regional options. For example here in Yorkshire we only get ITV Granada and not Yorkshire TV on the HD channel for ITV1. And BBC1HD does not show any programmes when local news comes on.

Can get bbc picture but not the other channels


Hi,
BBC1 and BBC2 are among the strongest signals you could simply have a low signal reception, try a channel dump and re scan for all digital signals, try re tuning on a different aerial if that's possible. If all this proves fruitless the fault will most likely be on the Main AV Panel where the tuner an IF stages are found. Post your Brand and Model Number for more specific help suggestions

How to tune a tv channel


This could be too much signal.

Just to be sure though, try the set in another room where one of the other TVs works okay. This will help you see if it's a cable or a TV signal issue. If you pick up all the channels okay it's likely that that other TV point has some bigger signal losses due to the cabling.

The mux (transmitter channel) carrying the BBC signals will be amongst the strongest at each and every TV transmitter across the land. This is because the BBC and the main ITV channels have to reach about 96% of the mainland UK population in order to the broadcasters to fulfill their remit.

TV tuner sensitivity varies between brands and models. It may be that your old TV was just about okay with the signal power, but the new TV's tuner is over saturated.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.
