    I have a sharp 60" led tv with built in tuner, running through a panasonic freeview hd recorder.
    This set up has been fine for the last 6 mths, until a fortnight ago
    when tv is first turned on there is no hd channels available and no signal message appears.
    if i leave it on a hd channel it comes on after approx 15 mins, pixelated and broken up picture for 5 mins and then it is ok
    I had a new aerial 6mths ago so dont think its that
    i am on the lancaster transmitter whom reports no faults.

    does this sound like my tv or my aerial
    thanks in advance

    Test the TV with a different signal source.
    Sounds like faulty capacitors warming up, to me.

    Test the TV with another signal source, such as a DVD player.

    It might be a faulty component in the TV or in something else (e.g. Panasonic Freeview recorder) or an aerial amplifier (if fitted). But no point in guessing. Test everything.
