    i have my samsung le32b450c4w 32" set up ok on the dtv, but my problem is sometimes it changes itself back to atv channels only, why does it do this , only happens every couple of weeks or so, rather strange and frustrating having to set it up to dtv channels all the time. anyone know of any permanent fix for this.
    many thanks in anticipation.

    I have a 15" lcd TV 'Akura' branded that does something similar, but as it's now in the guest bedroom it doesn't bother me.

    Have you checked the TV has the latest and correct Firmware? See Search results | SAMSUNG

    yes i have looked at all of that and all seems ok , what may be happening is that we are not digital ready here in henley-on-thames in oxfordshire, so maybe they are interfereing with the tv signal , do you think this is possible ? thanks

    What aerial are you using for the TV? It may be that sometimes reception of a 'distant out-of-area' digital transmitter is (just) adequate enough to be tuned but the TV then finds it drops below the required threshold so 'forgets' them... You then force the TV to find those weak signals again and the cycle repeats.

    Check your digital reception predictions here Digital UK - Postcode checker

    Crystal Palace or Hannington are the most likely sources of digital TV until switchover converts the local Henley relay.

    Or replace/upgrade/improve the aerial system to receive the digital from CP or HAN if you can't wait :smashin:
