I have a problem with my Samsung TV's Freeview.

My dad had recently changed the arial cable connecting to the TV, there was no problem with this and I was able to watch all my channels. However, today when I turned the TV on the screen was black and an on screen noticed said that there was a problem with the connection.
None of my channels worked so I decided to re-tune the channels using the auto tune option. But after the searching was completed
, I only had BBC channels(every BBC channel!). So I decided to tune it again and this time I noticed it only found channels on Channel 45 (frequency-666000KHz Bandwidth:8Mhz).
I can't seem to get the other channels back. Please help :D

I also has sky connected to the same TV.

jb38: Hello, I have tried the factory rest option a couple of times. But each time I'm still only getting the same BBC channels.

jb38: Thank you for helping, I've tried your new advice to search manually on both the channels. However, the TV still doesn't find any channel.
