The dvd recorder (also panasonic has developed a fault, its well out of warranty and i need to arrange repairs ) so I have therefore disconeected it fromm the TV . But having simply linked the tv to the terrestial ariel as per the instruvtion manual there is no sign of dvb channels . Not available as an option in set up menu and nothing on guide.

My husband is short of strangling me so any tips are v welcome. The TV has a live warranty, but I am worried there is something damned obvious
Hello, my name isXXXXX be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.

- Can you please get me the model number written on back of TV and DVD Recorder?
It will help to trouble shoot the problem.

Hi- the TV is Panasonic TX-L32X3B. The DVD recorder is Panasonic DMR-EX75EB. If its of any use, the recorder started displaying U81 code on Friday night, having undertaken some research i established this would require a professional repair. So in preparation for getting this in motion, I (regrettably ) disconnected it earlier today.


Thanks for getting back so swiftly

Thanks Karen for model numbers info.

let me look into related manuals, get back to you in an hour.

Thanks for waiting.

Please press AV to select TV as source then press TV button on side panel of TV or its remote control and select DVB option, now press Menu and select DVB Tuning Menu then Auto Setup option to run auto tuning that will scan available channels through connected antenna.

Please reply back how it worked.
Thank you.

I had tried this already, I only get analogue tuning option, nothing for DVB tuning.


I just tried again but still not showing DVB tuning option.



There is a button on TV remote says TV, what happens when you push it?
Does TV show analog and DVB selection?
