DVB has caused Freeview channels to disappear on Panasonic Viera

A message came up on our approx 10-year old Panasonic Viera t.v. that there should be a DVB update. Had never used that before and now there is no channel three, four or five - or some others, though all BBC channels and most +1 channels remain. Instructions for generic 'return to factory settings using function key plus one or two others have no effect. How can we simply return to Freeview settings and get rid of DVB altogether. There were no problems previously.

DVB is Freeview in the UK. If you don't use DVB, you won't have any channels anymore.

Sounds like you need to setup/retune/scan for channels again. Have a look in the menus for something along those lines.

Lots of changes in the broadcast channel setups over the last year, so probably related to that.

Thank you for your assistance with this. I think we face the additional challenge of getting a signal from two different transmitters - one up in the north of Scotland and one in the north-east.
Progress is challenging, but we are very grateful for your response and the interesting article which was attached.
