Important information regarding the digital TV switchover
Television in the UK is going digital, bringing us all more choice and new services. Starting late
2007 and ending in 2012, television services in the UK will go completely digital, TV region by TV region.
How the switchover affects your TV equipment.
Your new TV has a digital tuner built in, which means it is ready to receive the Freeview signal by simply
connecting it into your aerial socket (you can check if you can get digital TV through your aerial now or
whether you will have to wait until the switchover at www.digitaluk.co.uk)
When the TV switchover happens in your area, there are at least two occasions when you will need to re-tune
your TV in order to continue receiving your existing TV channels and also to pick up new ones. Digital UK, the
body leading the digital switchover, will advise you when you need to retune during the switchover.
How to retune.
Retuning your TV is a very quick and simple process. We recommend that you retune
every few months to ensure you are receiving the very latest TV and radio channels
that are broadcast.
• In digital/freeview mode, on the remote control press ‘menu’ quickly followed by 8-8-8-8 (so
press the number 8 four times)
• You will now enter the ‘First time installation’ mode. (if you do not, please refer to the section
called ‘getting started’ later in this user guide)
First Time Installation
Country
UK
Language
English
Please ensure that the aerial is connected to the connector
labelled ‘ RF In ’ on the rear of the TV .Ensure that OK is
highlighted in yellow and press ‘OK’ on your remote .If after
this scan ,not all digital channels are found ,your aerial may
require a signal booster .alternatively ,upgrade your aerial
to a high gain digital version .
OK
Cancel
• Simply press ‘OK’ or ‘Enter’ on the remote control and your TV will retune.
If you do not retune your TV when advised to do so by Digital UK, you may lose some or all of your channels
until you do re-tune.
If you are missing any channels, it may be that they are not available in your area, or that your TV aerial
needs upgrading.
For help and support regarding the digital switchover, please contact Digital UK:
Telephone: 08456 50 50 50 (calls charged at local call rate, approx 3p per minute daytime or 1p per minute evenings from a BT landline)

Signal Booster
Once you have connected a 'Signal booster' you will need
to retune the TV in order to receive all of the channels.
If the TV finds some, but not all, of the Digital channels, the TV is
functioning correctly but the signal being received is not strong enough.
(The signal strength needs to be above 85% - you can see the signal strength
the TV is receiving when you change channels/ programmes) you will
need to increase the signal reception in order to recieve all of the channels
available. The most economical way to do this is by purchasing
and connecting a 'signal booster' in between the TV and the TV aerial socket.
If this does not solve the problem, you will need to upgrade the TV

CONNECTING A GAMES CONSOLE
Connecting a games console can
sometimes seem very difficult. We have
simplified it to three options depending
on the cables that you have.
Option 1 – Connecting via Scart
to AV adapter
If you are supplied with a cable from the
console which has YELLOW,
RED & WHITE connectors you must
connect via a SCART to AV adapter
(Some consoles include this)
Option 3 – Connecting via Component
cable
If you are supplied with a cable from the
console which has RED, GREEN, BLUE,
RED & WHITE connectors you must
connect via Component (for picture)
and by 3.5mm to phono cable (for sound).
TV Source should be set to Component.
TV source should be set to SCART.
3.5mm jack
to phono
cable adaptor
Option 2 – Connecting via HDMI cable
If you are supplied with a HDMI cable is
the easiest option. A HDMI cable can
output both video and audio and enables
you to enjoy digital-quality video and
audio with minimal loss of picture quality.
TV Source should be set to HDMI.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question:
Solution:
I have tuned in Digital TV but
I am not receiving any or all of the
channels and/or the channels I receive
are breaking up
1) Check you are in an area that can
receive Freeview. Visit
www.freeview.co.uk or call
08701 111 270.
2) Check you are using an aerial that is
able to receive a good digital signal. In
most cases, you will need an outdoor
digital hi-gain/wideband aerial. In areas
that have excellent Freeview coverage,
you may be able to use a loft type aerial
but it is highly likely that you will also
need to connect a booster between the
back of the TV and the TV aerial wall
socket. Unfortunately, to receive a good
enough digital signal, it is not possible to
use a portable/indoor type aerial.
This may change once the analogue
signal is switched off in 2012 and the
Digital signal strength is increased.
The sound quality is high pitched?
Go into the sound settings menu as
shown earlier in the manual and increase
the level of the bass and decrease
the treble
I have inserted a disc but it is not playing
1) Ensure you have inserted put the disc
in facing the correct way
2) Ensure the disc is clean and is not
scratched
3) Some copied discs will not play.
4) Check the DVD is a region 2 disc – to change
the region of the DVD player, refer to section
‘Changing Regions’.
The subtitles are switched on
when I am watching a DVD
Each time you press [Subtitles] button
you switch between the different languages.
Off is one of the options. If you still have
subtitles on, access through the DVD disc
menu and switch off
I have connected the TV to my VCR via
SCART but it is not recording
In addition to connecting via SCART, you
should connect the aerial cable from the
wall socket to VCR and another aerial
cable from the VCR to the TV
If you are still experiencing problems please contact the Helpline
