How to tune in your freeview box
Here's a cracking little tip I picked up today, about re-tuning your freeview box when you lose channels after the digital switch over in your area.
I have spent the past three weeks or so, running "update channels" or "search for new channels" on our Humax freeview recorder, when channels go missing from our freeview menu.
Yesterday, all the BBC channels went to a blank, black screen.
Fearing the worst, I contacted the manufacturers, only to find the answer was right under my nose all the time.
Don't ask me why, but if you go into your menu option on your freeview box, select "Restore to default factory settings" or manufacturers settings, etc, it will reboot and then search for channels again.
Hey presto, all my channels came back on in order and all working just fine!
As luck would have it, halfway through the football tonight, a neighbour came over asking if I knew how to tune a freeview box in, as they had lost all their BBC channels, they have a basic budget freeview box, however switching back to default settings, did the trick, all channels restored.
I was then informed that my neighbour's sister was having the same problem, a phone call later and she too was sorted out. Result!
