Thank you for confirming. Was this ever working before via aerial, or is this the first time trying to set that up?

my tv was working on sky in my bedroom but i replaced iti with a smart tv and put the bush in my spare room i haye never used it as a freeview before

Thank you for confirming.The issue here is the tv itself. This is an older (2008) model, and the Bush brand tvs tend to be very basic and low quality. The tv lacks a digital internal tuner. While it is HD ready, that means it can accept a hd signal from an external source, it doesn't mean it can pick up all the current digital channels, and back when it was made the channels were primarily analogue. Those analog channels are no longer broadcast so it finds no signal. What you would need to do is either hook it back up to a sky box or connect up an external hdtv tuner. Here is an example: Best regards,Nathan
