The digital tv reception has stopped working all of a sudden, which means that I can no longer receive Freeview Channels, though the terrestial TV still works ok, and I can also switch to a freeview box.
When this happended the last time I re-sinatlled the digital TV cannels via the menu, but for some reason, that option is now greyed-out so that I cannot access it.

Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSATis the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.
Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.
If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.
If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.
DV3 is actually DVB meaning Digital Video Broadcasting. The stylised design of the DVB symbol makes it look more like DV3. If the TV has the DVB symbol, then it has a digital tuner and can receive digital channels, i.e. Freeview.
If you need assistance with tuning the Freeview channels or have further questions, please let me know the model number of the TV. This can be found on a label on the back of the TV.
When you say free view i assume you mean all the free to air digital channels?
Simply make sure you have good reception and do a channel search and you should gain all the free to air channels, including digital channels if your tv has a built in set top box. Good luck.
I cannot find a manual for that number.
If it is digital you would be able to receive more than the 5 analogue programmes.
It would probably mention freeview on some part of the tv.
If you can get some of the extra freeview channels but not clearly then the aerial will need changing.
I presume you are from the uk, I had to change my aerial to get reception the cost for that was £240(i needed a indoor roof aerial so needed extra boosters).so aerial will be £150-£240.
You can turn your tv into a digital by adding a freeview digital box £20-50 .
Or purchase a new tv with freeview incorporated in it.
So i `m pretty sure if you have read the above you can decide whether its digital,but i think not.
Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception? I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.
