Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Philips hdt8520 has lost BBC 1 and BBC2 in the last few days. When I retune, 2 new channels are found but the signal strength is now poor for BBC1 and BBC2. This was not the case a week ago? Will installing the latest software update help?

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

Cannot tune all digital cahnnels on Sharp aquos


Start by doing a factory settings/ defaults on the Sharp rather than a normal automatic retune.This should then be ok. You need to empty the existing presets first so it will find the new type of signal BBC is now using.
If still not working for BBC1 +2 then look at whether you have too much aerial signal strength. (ie a booster/splitter that you could bypass)

Ferguson DV3 set-top box not finding BBC channels


I have solved the problem by selecting Manual Tune in the Menu. This means selecting each channel one at a time beginning at 21. The indicator shows the Signal Strength and Quality for each channel. If both show a green bar (strong on both counts) give it time to identify the new programs on each channel and add them. It will show how many found and added if you wait a few minutes. When each channel is done, move on to the next one. The last channel is 65 I believe but there is not much up the top end.
When I had finished going through this routine I found it had indeed added all channels I needed including BBC1 and BBC2

Echostar t101 fta digi box retuned and lost bbc1 bbc2 itv and channel 4 all to channels 801 and above any help and advice would be very kind


This is due to NIT in DVB-T transmission

Digital UK estimates that "only 1%" of Freeview receivers are susceptible to this change - technically, the introduction of a multi-part Network Information Table within the digital data.

The effects on some of those STBs and VCRs are plainly malfunctions, such as abnormal channel numbering e.g. Channels may be listed, but they're assigned to all the same number or assorted incorrect numbers. Alternatively, no pictures are seen, despite all channels having high ratings for signal strength.
