Good evening Gents, my freeview box channels disappeared on saturday night,it read no signal,I thought the box had gone so went to argos sunday and bought a slightly more expensive settop box, have gone through the scan procedure over and over there has no channels I have checked all cables and aerials, have split the aerial with my daughters her is fine, have spent hours yesterday and today swapping cables and I still have no freeview on my samsung slim tv about 3 years old, could my tv need updating before the switch over or how can our reception from crystal palace transmitter work on one tv and not the other. any advise helpful, thanks Thea

Thanks jb38, I have a N12 postcode, as you say my tv seems more sensitive, in the meantime I am going to assume I can no longer get freeview reception on my 2 set top boxes and will have to watch the 5 channels until I get a signal again, or wait till the switch over and get a new tv.

just to add there is an exit option but it won't let me exit, only lets me choose ok (to rescan)Thea - watching tv through a blue rescan message

Linda: I have the same problem I posted the issue ealier this morning noone has given answer,
for now I am watching the small pic on the EPG, also turning the box off to change volume and channel for now just so the blue box doesn't block the screen,,, we're not silly it's not allowing the exit option after retuning, wonder if we have to wait until the switch over is finished on the 18th :(

Dave: I have just given that a try, the blue box came back it seemed to take a bit longer and the signals on other channels seem to be weak, turned off and back to square one, any other suggestions...

Dave: the tv is a Samsung Slim about 3 years old, the digital box is about a month old and is a (argos)bush BU11FVZS2/A, do you think I need to replace anything...
