HI I have bought low energy digital set top box fro freeview- GUD1500X12. I have connected all required leads to my flat screen tv. However the only signal i get is all the radio stations. Is it not possible to watch freeview in analog tv ?

MARIO: You won't get any Freeview until 2012. Freeview is a digital service.

I used to live in Newcastle, and my Phillips tv worked fine on digital. It has digital built in to it. But since iv moved to Glasgow I can't get any digital tv. The analogue television gets like 3 channels and they are such bad quality that it's unwatchable. Iv had the maintenence guy out to have a look at the areal socket in the wall and he took it apart n back together but it made no difference. Any suggestions please !!!

Daniel Peake: Have you just moved in the last week?

The last Scottish analogue transmissions were switched off last Wednesday morning. You will need to do a full retune on your TV if you haven't already. It might be called Full Reset, Default Setting, or First-Time Installation, and it might be under the Software Update menu rather than the tuning menu. Add Channels is not enough, you need it to completely remove everything it previously knew about where the channels were.

TV Re-tune may have a guide for retuning your TV, or a copy of the manual.

It's possible that your TV cannot handle the 8K mode used for post-switchover transmissions. Check whether it's on the list at , and check with Philips whether any software/firmware updates are available.

Daniel Peake. If you get no results with the advice Mike's given you, you could try removing the aerial connection to the set. Again follow Mike's directions above,once done, re-connect the aerial and run First-Time install again. Hopefully the process will have wiped the memory as it was when in Newcastle and give you a satisfactory re-install of the digital channels from Blackhill.
