I had the same until this mornin. It installed the Freeview channels (we no longer have an analogue signa), and we loved it! Since then, "no signal". We also DO have a Freeview PVR, so we could watch through the EXT1 sourse.
The "Source" button on the remote control handset offers you input option (TV, DTV/USB, DVD, etc etc). I was using TV, which is for ANALOGUE signals. I have just selected DTV/USB and omg! success!! And relief!!!
If this sorts you out too then my work is done. x

Bought second hand, having no luck trying to tune (search for tv channels) is it because it'san analogue device?


Quite possible as to work in UK it needs to have a digital tuner if it doesn't it could be used as a monitor for one of the sat or freeview boxes if the TV has the required connection socket
Scart =SD only
Component = HD upto the resolution of the screen in analog
HDMI = HD in digital signal unlikely on your panel

Have had digital installed and cannot get tv to work through digital. Any advice?


Hello
Thei Orion model Tv is not equipped with a digital tuner inside. There is only an analogue tuner fitted and only analogue channels can be received by this set. To get digital channels, you have to buy one settop box, which can convert digital signals to analogue signals. In short, a Digital to Analogue Converter should be bought, if you want to get digital channels. OK.

The screen says that the signal is weak and shows snow.


Is this a replacement set? Plugged in the same antenna?
Is this the analogue tuner you're using or it's DTV (Digital TV tuner)?
If you're in the USA and Canada there are no analogue transmissions.
You'll find the tuner selection in Menu and a sub menu headed Inputs.
If in the UK some regions have closed down analogue signals already and some are coming up to doing so, concluding with my region, London in June, 2012.
If you're not in these countries you'll get your area's info. by entering 'Digital TV changeover' into Search on your web browser.

I have just moved house to Reading and previously was able to view freeview tv using my old indoor aerial in my 2nd floor flat in london. This indoor aerial didn't pick up any signals, not even analogue,...


You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

No signal


Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.
If this helped Vote/rate me.

No digital picture on digital TV


Are you getting a snowy picture, If so, you`re still on analogue. If you are on a digital channel with say no signal, you should get a blank screen with either a message saying no signal or a dot on the screen. Ian

I'm confused about HD (high definition) and digital


In Australia analogue TV signals will be phased out and finished by the end of 2009 (I think).
If you have a standard analogue TV you won't be able to receive any more free to air analogue TV programs when they stop brocasting these TV signals. To recieve the new digital signals you need to buy a digital set top box (which receives digital TV signals and converts it to analogue signal that can be displayed on your old TV). The set top box will only receive Standard Definition signals and this is a lower screen resolution that is available from High Definition signals.

Digital TV signals offer approx. 15 TV channels ln High definition and Standard Definition, different programs channels will be available from the same TV broadcaster, although the High Definition pograms will also be repeated on one of the Standard Definition channels.

High Definition gives a sharper image than Standard dedinition, but you may not notice much difference because it depends much on the material you are viewing, You will notice how clear DVD and BlueRay movies are compared with the VCR tapes. To get the best images from DVD movies your player must be connected to the HDMI connector on your High Definition TV (provided your DVD player has one, usually BlueRay players will have one, they also will play normal DVD disks).

If you purchase a new High Definition TV you will also be able to receive all the Digital TV programs. Currrently these TVs are avail in Plasma or LCD screens and there are newer technologies within a few years. The Plasma screens use twice as much energy (electricity) as a LCD screen. It is suggested that the viewing distance to the TV should be 3.5 times the size of the TV screen.

Hope this answers your query.
Get back to me if you have any more questions.

If you are using an analogue signal then check things like DECT phones, Wifi / DSL modems, power cables, power convertors / UPS, washing machines, dryers, microwaves etc are kept as far away from the cables as possible.
Have you bought anything new recently, when it happens think what things are turned on... is it the garage door being opened etc.
If you are using a digital signal (and ideally something like a DVD player or a games console rather than a cable TV box) then check the HDMI cable.  If all appears well then it could well be a fault with the television, especially if you get interference from multiple source (i.e. cable TV, DVD player, console etc)
