Hi you clever wiki people . I moved house over the weekend and my problem is my tv will only work on Bbc and 2 no other channels. I have done a retune and still the same, when I first tuned it it was getting all channels but all but Bbc were breaking up . Tried it again this morning and all other channels come up no signal. Thinking it could be the arial i tried my bedroom tv on it and that works fin. Tv is around 12 months old so will be out of guarantee frown . It has not been damaged in the move. Any ideas please. Thank you. smile

It could possibly have been damaged by shock or vibration. The removal company will probably be insured against damage like this so I'd ask them.

Watching BBC2 can be dangerous. It can turn you into an intellectual quicker than you can switch it off!

Done the removal myself so no chance of insurance. As for being turned into an intellectual, well you obviously don't know me but intellectual I will never be smile

Dilly did you know that you get two-year warranty under EU rules you only have to prove the purchase, so you could supply a bank or credit card statement instead. smile

It could be the aerial feed into that room
If it works in the bedroom, that seems to be pointing to the coax cable being the problem in the other room and not the TV causing the issue
That is my 2 bobs worth anyway

Some technical advice, not, make sure the coax plug is secure at the end of the cable, also try moving the cable about at the back of the telly and see if affects the picture, my last dalliance with a telly was many years ago moving an indoor ariel around to get a better picture, went to look over the back of the telly and the ariel poked me in the eye and it had no little plastic bit on the end, off to casualty, doh smack

Have you checked the Ariel is digital,We had a similar problem, TV would only scan a few of the channels in my lads room, His problem was not having a suitable digital Arial on the roof and was using a small portable one, maybe worth a look into Dilly .

I think the aerial wire itself from the aerial to the tv has to be digital as well as the aerial.

Wires several years old are not digital

Cheers Derek but I still don't understand how the smaller tv works fine on it. Both tvs are modern flat screens.

are you using an aerial splitter to get tv to the bedroom and your living room - if so try switching the aerial leads over.
Have you tried your big tv in the bedroom?

What about the setup menu on the remote as I think you wipe the existing channels when doing a new setup

I've just moved into this property and the only connection is in the living room . The small tv was used in the bedroom of my last place. So what I don't understand is why the smaller one works fine on the same connection.
