Favourite setting lost when switched off

I have set numerous channels under the favourites option but channel seven keeps dropping off the list. When i re-add it to the list it is lost again next time i switch on the unit - all other channels stay fine. Very annoying.

I think it is actually Channel 7 causing the problem. I have the same TV and have noticed that Ch7 only drops off the Favourites list when 7 telecasts a program in Standard Definition (SD) on the High Definition (HD) channel 70. They usually seem to do this when broadcasting sporting events. You can check if they're broadcasting in SD on the HD channel 70 by pressing the "INFO" key (also labelled "<<", just above the "TEXT" key). The channel description will read "70 7 SD Digital" instead of "70 7 HD Digital". (You will also see this when you change to channel 70 during these times.) Every time they've done this, I've lost the 7 HD channel from my favourites list. If you re-program channel 70 into your favourites list while it's broadcasting in SD, it will disappear from the favourites list when 7 starts broadcasting a HD signal again. I think I read somewhere that this happens because channel 7 isn't really transmitting a SD-resolution (576i) program on the HD channel, but instead just redirecting your TV to the SD channel's signal (Ch 7 on the tuner) - or something like that! I haven't yet found a way to stop this from happening other than to not change to HD channel 70 when they're telecasting a SD program! I have to admit, it's annoying, but it's a minor glitch in what I believe is an otherwise outstanding TV. I intend to email Network 7 about this problem. Maybe if the problem is their fault and enough people hassle them about it, they might do something to fix it! - Mav (Australia)

How to retrieve lost channels on digital tv

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.

We purchased an LCD TV very recently (2 days ago) and when we turned it on it automatically stored the channels in our area. However, after our initial excitment of the picture quality etc we discovered...

Manually type in channel 9 and then hit <enter> so the TV switches to that channel. Then go to the "setup" screen and navigate around until you find the "channel setup" section. There you will find an option to memorize channels, including the channel you are on.
