Possibly. Try rotating the antenna a little bit and retry tuning. Keep on doing this until you get your channels. If this doesn't work, raise the antenna as high as possible and try again.

I bought aRCA air ultra thin multi directional indoor HDTV antenna,I cant get this to work with my tv, a 32mf330b/f7 no matter what I do no matter how many times I run the autoprogram,can You help.


Indoor aerials are exclusively for areas with a strong signal and the way digital tv works a good signal is essential.

I expect the signal where the aerial is sited has a poor signal strength and a high gain outdoor aerial will be needed. I suggest you have a look around and check what the neighbours are doing but bear in mind the signal strength in built up and fringe areas can be the radio equivalent of micro climates where moving a few yards in any direction and you could either be freezing or growing pineapples.

If you can take your tv to a good aerial and do a retune and store the found channels you might be lucky and discover your indoor aerial might receive a few channels well enough for viewing.

UNDEFINED HAS COME UP ON BOX


Check the aerial connection onto the box is firm and the wire is not pulled tight. If it looks ok disconnect it from the box and connect it to the TV aerial input and then see if the TV can show any channels at all when you tune it in. If there is nothing coming to the TV, the aerial feed or actual roof aerial may be damaged, or not pointing at the transmitter mast.

Technika flat screen tv forgets digital channels found if switched to standby


Channel memory of stored channels is contained in a Eprom which may be part of the microprocessor------voltage when set is shut off is often from either the standby supply or even a filter cap that holds sufficient charge to maintain voltage for the memory.

Look in those areas first.

An alternate way would be to go to a box and input signal to rear audio and video jacks---the box would then retain channel memory etc and this would bypass your issue.

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a sharp aquos 32DH500E TV and have difficulties with receiving all the freeview DTV channels. I've used the auto tune function and get most freeview channels but not ITV, C4, C5 and the signal on...


Your lack of channels is from a specific group and is usually caused by poor signal from your aerial. A new larger aerial may solve that.
Freesat is OK if you have a dish installed.

Just got logik ldvr 1608 dvd but it cant find any


You need an aerial to tune the freeview.
However, to record from satelite you can connect a scart lead from the satelite vcr out to the dvd in and it will record vie the av "channel" on the dvd.
Depending on your location, regarding signal strength, you can purchase an indoor, boosted aerial to tune the freeview.
Also, if the scart connection on the dvd is a 2 way connection( allowing a signal to the tv as well as from the tv) you can connect the tv to the satelite and the dvd to the satelite only and the dvd will play through the satelite even when the satelite is off.

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna...


I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

No colour when digital set top box attached


Ensure the set top box is set to the correct video out. Probably RGB if scart lead or CVBS if coax lead.
