    didn't it come with a manual?

    Look for "HOW TO TUNE THE TV IN"

    You need to scan for channels, as it will explain in the manual that came with your TV.

    Good advice.. RTFM.:whistling:

    If it is the same as my Samsung press the TV/DVT button to switch into Digital TV mode.

    Press the D.MENU button to bring up the menu screen.

    Scroll down the left hand side boxes using the D-Pad until you reach what looks like a picture of a ariel.

    Press the right D-pad button to highlight Auto Store.

    Press the right D-pad button again to start the search.

    Wait and hope it picks up some channels.

    If it doesnt pick up many channels then you need to start looking at your ariel system.

    Go to the front of the manual.

    On page one it should say "plug aerial in".

    That should solve the problem. :thumbsup:

    :thumbsup: You need to take the aerial out of the freeview box and plug it into the tv. Then tune it.

    I already told him to read the manual but OP just ignored me.

    And my comment was are people really so dumb that they won't have plugged the aerial in. I doubt very much this is the case! :whistling:

    Or does your freeview box have an aerial loop through? If it does you only need a aerial fly lead.
