To restore missing channels, you need to retune your digital receiver (box or TV).

The retuning process runs a scan and finds all the available channels. Your box may have an Add New Channels option that you can use, but this may not pick up other changes such as channels being moved to a different multiplex or removed altogether.
How to retune

  1. Switch on your digital box and/or TV.
  2. Press Menu on the remote control.
  3. Select the Setup or Installation option.
  4. Select the 'First time installation' option (sometimes called 'Factory reset', 'Full retune' or 'Default settings').
  5. Press OK if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry, this is normal.
  6. If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
  7. Channels will be automatically installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart.
  8. After retuning, you will have to redo your Favourites list and other settings. If you retune a digital TV recorder, you also should reset future recordings.

Is this TV digital? I've lost channels since the change to digital from analogue


I doubt it has a digital tuner but the owner manual should show that or Google the model number.

I Have a 15inch acoustic solution telly with built in freeview model number astv15id , however it has lost most of the freeview channels how do i retrieve them back.


Go into main menu set up and navigate to option to rescan. (might be called install or re-install stations)
Note - if it has lost channels it may be due to poor signal quality - check the quality of your aerial connections. You may also have lost channels if your area has recently been subject to 'digital switch-over' . Although they are already on digital tv all Freeview boxes will need re-tuning after switch over because this entails a change of some channel frequencies post analogue.

Have lost most of digital channels


I had similar problerm.
Solution was to go to Functions - to Others - to SETUP - select Shipping Conditions.

After the unit has been reset to shipping conditions, switch off.
When next switched on it will autosetup like when you first got it and all channels should then reinstall.

You need a digital to analog convertor box to recieve the digital signal.

All UHF+VHF signals will be digital starting in June.
