    Here are the results of a manual search on a Sony KP-41DS1U

    The search was compiled by utalizing two transmitters Wenvoe & Mendips
    as both these transmitters are accesible from my location in South Wales.

    Anyone have any idea why the Sony fails to fid a number of transmitions, example: Discovery, UKTV Gold, Boomerang etc, the channels were picked up by my Pace Freeview receiver, I cant work out why :confused:

    Phone Sony and ask for an update card you are not on 2.14 - as The Hits is missing.

    Would I qualify for an update card, as the set was purchased recently via ebay,and as such is not new.
    Also how would one use an update card, how can I find out if the set is 2.14.

    Hi
    Channel 18 (the hits) missing is a known fault with some of the earier digital CTVs, contact Sony for your next course of action.

    Contact Sony on 08705 111 999. They send you a card. You slip it in the back of the TV. The TV updates the software. You send back the card. They can also talk you through checking the software version.
