don't know what ariel is... or local broadcasting, so I assume no. we have the basics only. and a cable to DVD machine . there is also a box DFV19U
TV remote ...
yes i checked the airial which goes into the DFV19U box. it is securely plugged in . i have pulled all the plugs out and pushed them in again. The DFV has a red light on it so i assume it is working.
there isnt a power button on the DFV19U . there is a red light on. if i unplug the DFV 19u the light goes off. plugging it back in makes the light go green momentarily then back to red. i dont unfortunately know what colour the light is normally. red?
this doesnt account for why the status box says 'database empty' this means i suppose that all the info about the available channels has been wiped. additionally when i run automatic programming the sequence is not as i have seen it in the past.
sorry , i dont think we are doing well here. none of this accounts for the fact that this set up has been working well for years until yesterday. i have checked all connections and they are all ok.
"since TV isn't connected directly to arial that is why it doesn't show any channel nor the auto tuning works to get channels in TV". so why was it working fine until just now? it cant be a conncetion problem. it must be a problem inside the set.
when i try to reprogramme it automatically the usual features dont appear. there is a gradual appearance of the transmitters in the area. now i have a box with channels up to 20.
I pressed DTV menu. it suddnely worked... (it didnt work before) i got the menu for reprogramming i was looking for. it is now working again tho why it went wrong in the first place i have no idea.....nor why it didnt work when i pressed DTV Menu. any way its ok now.... thanks for your help!
