Re-tuning your TV does not require the TV aerial to be adjusted or changed it is simply changes within the TV settings , please read your TV manual or search your product number online if you have trouble.
Simple steps are normally on your digital TV remote:
- Press “Menu” or “Digital Menu”
- Choose the menu that best matches “first time installation” “New Channel Scan”
- let the TV search through all channels then “Store” or “OK”
Remember you need to carry this out on all your freeview TV and set-top boxes, so if you use a freeview PVR or youview box make sure these are re-tuned as well or you may well miss some recordings and series links.
