BBC 1 in the wrong place!


Standard Member

I've got two DTVs and a freeview HD recorder. All of them do the same thing; when I autotune it finds two BBC1 channels. The one that goes into Channel 1 is clicky, screechy, freezes (i.e. poor signal). The one that goes into Channel 819 is perfect. I can correct the problem by rearranging the channels after tuning, but my LG Plasma doesn't let me rearrange the channels.

1) What causes this problem?
2) How can I get the TV to ignore the poor signal version of BBC 1?

(The problem also affects BBC2)

I'm getting desperate!

I'd say its picking other signals up off the side or back of the aerial. Dont know about how to make the TV ignore it though.

Look in the manual to see whether you can erase the unwanted weak channel(s) and then manually tune in the wanted strong channel(s).

Good point, or clear the channel list and do manual searches on the individual RFs you want.
