Hi there, I am Pete and I'll be happy to assist you today.

First, ensure your TV is set to the correct input for the source that you are trying to watch.

If your TV channels need tuned in, then go to the settings menu and run an auto scan to check for available programmes.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this topic and I'll be more than happy to help.

Have a good weekend and stay safe,
