When Channel 5 came along they had to call at each house and re-tune any equipment using channel 68 where it would cause a conflict. Many older units had small screws to alter them but some just have no user control as to what frequency they use. Looked at old games machine the tennis type and there is no option to re-tune.

Even with current freeview there are problems with old people loosing channels and not being able to re-tune my mother lost TV for a week before some one could re-tune it for her.

As said RF should not be broadcast anyway it should be contained within the coax but often it is and I have seen where Sky boxes have blocked a signals to near by houses. If some one is still using old RF output equipment it is unlikely they will read any internet posts as to how it needs changing so only way will be same as when Channel 5 came along they will need to send people door to door to alter equipment for them.
