What are you trying to do, And when you "say free to air box"
Do you Mean European Satellite ?
(free to air) boxes Can mean loads of things.
If it's European satellite go to my webpage. download my software to your dragon cam.
Or do you mean freeview ?
Do you have a Wideband Aerial.
for freeview If your running the set top box off a normal old Tv Aeriel this is your problem
The old TV Aerials Are not designed really for freeview But in some case's you can get away with it if the signal is strong enough
Check your freeview Signal strength here by post code.
please explain more detail if you would cheers

The Quasar VV-2002 only has an NTSC (analog tuner). Very few stations with NTSC transmitters are still broadcasting. Only low-power stations were allowed to continue broadcasting an analog signal. Unless you are very close to one of the transmitters, your TV will not tune in the station.
You'll need to connect the TV to a digital-to-analog over the air converter box. (The low-end ones that were free or cheap with the government coupon are harder to find; a few models are still available.) These convert the ATSC (digital) signal to NTSC. Then use an appropriate antenna and follow the instructions to tune in the available OTA signals. Send these to the TV either on the RF or composite Line-in. Set the TV to the appropriate input and use the converter box to change channels.
I hope this helps.
(20" TVs weren't required to have an ATSC tuner until 2007. Since there are reviews for the VV-2002 from 2004, it obviously is an older set.)
Finally sussed out how to (re)set presets, overall you need a little patience: Probably best to press Autotune before we set off and let it do its thing. Press 'presets' and find a free channel or the one you want to change, leave it until you can hear the station its on play. Now, press 'jog/select' and WAIT until it says <SELECT> (but don't wait too long when it says this or you'll have to start again) Use dial to find station you want AND LEAVE to tune in. Press AND hold presets down until number flashes. Press jog/select once briefly (normally). Press presets once briefly...it should now say "Saved" Leave to save for a few seconds. Voila! You can now change station either by pressing Presets and moving dial...waiting for the station to load OR press jog/select to manually tune to the station of your choice using the dial.
Ur tv is not getting a strong enough tv antena signal that,why ur tv is not getting,all the free air DTV broadcasting all the tv stations.Try it with a better antena like a roof antena or a digital antena.After have a better antena install and hook up,rescan all the DTV tv stations again,will appear.
Original manual found - note the Model No. is listed as SC-EN38DB i.e. complete system (main unit = SA-EN38DB; speakers = SB-EN38; remote control = N2QAYB000245):
"Press and hold (PLAY MODE) until 2DAB AUTO SCAN' appears. When a frequency is tuned by Auto scanning on this unit, the ensemble corresponding to the frequency is displayed for approximately 2 seconds"
I know where you have gone wrong. When you turned your tv on it was on the terrestrial channel. Which allowed you to tune in the normal Analog channels.
If you look on your tv remote you will have a button that says DTV click this if there is not one press you source / av button until you get to your freeview tv screen. Then what I would like you to do now is press the menu button and this will allow you to tune in your Freeview tv from there.
Hope this makes sense.
Please leave a thumbs up when you get it sorted out.
Hi James, Here is a link to the instructions below to download the Siemens Gigaset Manual for free or for Siemens repair services. However, on the 4000 model you can easily set the time by pushing menu, scroll down to base settings push OK, push OK again for clock, then scroll down to TIME, and push OK and make your changes. Also, you can change the date, as you saw in the menu. If your using a 4200 handset, the menu is slightly different, but similar. And if you get caller id, the phone will automatically read the system date and time from the phone company so you never have to set your time again. Here is the link for the manual, you may need to go to a different manual depending on your base station model. Good Luck, CG http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%204000%20Quick%20Start.pdf
