published on UK Free TV

The problem could be one of:

- the aerial has been moved or damaged;

- the cables or connectors that connect the digibox to the aerial are damaged;

- the digibox has broken.

If you have a "spare" digibox you use this to test the aerial connection. Can you still watch analogue TV OK?

Well I suspect something was wrong with the Pvr. I unplugged it completely and removed all aerial cables for at least 10 minutes and the set top box then worked fine. I plugged the Pvr back in and it then worked. I was reading the analog interference article that made me think to do this. I hope I'm posting in the right place as I can't find my original comment, Just wanted to give you an update as I know how annoying it is giving advice and not getting a response
Cheers, dan

I have a Sense 42" Model No 51-42 which has been working off our Sky box and BT when I switched. I have now moved it in to another room without a sky box or BT so it is plugged into the normal aerial socket( which works as we had another television in there until yesterday working fine. I cannot find any channels when going through auto search it comes up with no signal on every channel I change to.
Any ideas what to do please.

Steve Leah: From google: "The Sense 51-42 LCD TV has ... built in DVB Freeview and analogue TV tuner."

You need to select Digital TV before scanning as Analogue TV is no longer transmitted.

A factory-reset or 'First Time Installation' may be appropriate.

jayne: That said suggests that your TV carried out an auto-scan as soon as you switched it on, the percentage figures referred to indicating the progress of the tuner carrying out a rescan, the fact of it reverting back to the beginning again meaning that the tuner hasn't stored any channels. Of course that is "if" nothing is being received?, if not check your aerial connections, if though they are, then the auto-scan was most likely for purpose of channel updating.

Further advice as / if required.

From what your state it seems as if the splitter might be the cause of the problem. Try a different one and check all the cables and connections.

It is likely to be saying no signal because it has not yet been tuned to your loacl services. Set it to find Freeview Ddigital TV signals and then run the automatic tuning option.
