I am looking for channel 34 as it used to be - ITV3+1
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
there seems to be a few channels that have altered over the last few days
OK, working on it and get back to you in 5 minutes, is it OK?
Please press Menu to get home screen, go to setup and find Auto Setup, select it and press OK to run channel scan so TV can update available channels data in memory.This process may take several minutes so let it finish itself. Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.Thanks.

OK but after 11pm I will leave it till tomorrow. I have tried that but there is not an auto setup on the screen, several other items but not that.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am going to have to leave it for now and try again tomorrow, how will I be able to get through again without paying again?
This is odd, please use the search option in home screen to find auto-setup OR you would need to reset the TV to restore default settings and run first time setup wizard so TV can do fresh scan for all available channels in area.Go to Setup option of Menu and select Shipping Condition and press OK to proceed.Please bookmark this page/ save the page link to reopen it in your convenient time to proceed further.Thanks.

I have only just come home and am trying once again to sort my tv out, there is no auto setup on the screen
Press Menu on TV remote to get menu screen, go to Setup option and select Shipping Condition and press OK to proceed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sorry but there is not a Shipping Condition either, would it come under something else?
This is odd, is the TV input source is set on TV mode (not any HDMI input etc)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have no idea, sorry
Press Input button to get input source list, select TV in that list.Now press Menu and again check Setup menu for shipping condition option that might be located down the list so use down-arrow button on remote to check all options in Setup menu option.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The list on menu is Eco Navigation, TV Guide Settings, USB Device Setup, Child Lock, DVB Tuning Menu, Language, Display Settings, Viera Link Settings, System Menu, and Other Settings.
Check System Menu and Other Settings menu.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have already tried them with no success
OK, please check Tuning Menu for Auto Setup option, is it available?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have at last found shipping Condition, but it says all channels will be erased - yes or no, is it Ok to press yes?
Nice, go ahead and press OK to proceed. You would need to go through initial/ first time setup process like you just have the TV out of box now.
BTW, where the shipping condition option was hiding in menu?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There was a notice that said the connection had failed and now I have a keyboard on the screen with an Encryption key .
Apologies for all the problems
Is it Network connection failure and asking you to put router password?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No. Maybe I had better leave it and get someone in to look at it, but will I still have programmes in the meantime?
No, previous channel data has been deleted and TV will run auto-setup to scan channels. You can skip the netwrok setup option at this stage, press Back/ Return OR Exit button on TV remote to go to next step of setup wizard in TV.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have easy setup that did not work previously, but how do I get Wizard setup from here?
Have you tried the buttons on remote that I mentioned in previous reply to skip the existing screen and to move forward to next option?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes and it is not playing with me!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what is WPS wireless router, is it the computer router?
Yes, it is router setup, please check WPS button on your router, press it for a while till the message on TV screen change/ go away to finish the network setup.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Nothing is happening
This is odd, I would unplug TV power cord from wall socket for few minutes, replug back in and check if it works to go through setup wizard in TV.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
still nothing - how do I enter the router password ***** where?
I'm not sure what type of screen with keyboard is appearing on TV, can you get me the picture of it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Success at last through dogged determination, thanks for your help

Can I get Catch up TV on this set? This is just a casual question as I have never tried to find it.
You would need to connect media streaming device to this TV to get lots of more video streaming services available over internet or get Sky box for catch up TV, please check following link for more details.. hope these info will help, please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.Thanks.
