Pete :

Hi there,

Pete :

What area are you located in?

Pete :

Which transmitter are you tuned into? (e.g. Black Mountain, Carlingford)

Pete :

What channel numbers do the RTE stations appear on?

JACUSTOMER-sqg84882- : Newtownhamlton Newry BT35OHR. Carlingford transmitter channel numbers RTE1 no5. RTE2 no6. TV3 no7. Tg4 no8
Pete :

Ok, if you haven't already done so, try retuning the channels.

Pete :

To retune this system, go to Tuning - Auto Setup.

JACUSTOMER-sqg84882- : Retuned the system - auto Setup no change. Very annoying , thank you
Pete :

How do you set up the series timer?
There are two ways: by tuning in to the particular RTE channel and setting it up, or by setting it up from the programme guide.
Can you try a different method from the one you normally use, and let me know if it works?

JACUSTOMER-sqg84882- : I have tried it both ways over and over .
Pete :

Do you know what version of software is installed on the box?

Pete :

The firmware on the box may have gotten corrupted.
Try re-installing the firmware by downloading it and following the instructions from the Panasonic website:

Pete :

Let me know if you need anything else.
