THIS IS FOR ITV CHANNELS - NOT THE ITV HUB !!!
I had 175 channels, then as usual ITV and a few other channels start going distorted and then "No Signal" !!!
Soon as I do a channel search, total channels has gone from 175 down to 148?
I had tried a factory reset and played with several of the hidden menus also,
So there isn't much I can't try !!!
I have a good outdoor aerial and cable and everything else is good,
I will add this is now the 3rd box in under a year, YES that's 3 boxes since I have had NOW TV, Im tired of this now !!!
Any advice guys?
Does anyone else have problems with ITV Channels?
If you connect the TV aerial directly into the back of your television in built tuner and do a fresh retune of your TV, does the missing channels show ?
Also, i would double check on this website link below that there is no planned maintenance work of any TV transmitters or Relays in your regional area which may be causing the loss of channels.
Although I don't watch as much freeview TV as I used to, however I had noticed that CBS Reality + 1 (freeview channel 67) and Pick + 1 (freeview channel 91) recently vanished.
There may have been other leavers and some new joiners but, I must admit, I'm not that bothered because I find myself watching quite a good amount of YouTube nowadays.
PS. I find myself facinated by the machinations of the US president.
It could be possible that there are more than one transmitter in your regional coverage area, where the smart box is latching onto one of the weaker transmitters that doesn't carry all the mutiplex COM (see this website for the different mutiplex which carries the various TV channels).
Does the missing channels on your smart box match any of the mutiplex on the list ?
If the smart box is picking up more than one TV transmitter, it doesn't usually give you an option in it's TV scan menu settings to select / save the best suited transmitter.
A few smart boxes owners have mentioned that they have had various success by adding a Y splitter on the incoming TV aerial and sharing the TV signal with another Freeview TV device such as the inbuilt TV tuner on your television which filters out the weaker transmitter and forces the smart box then to automatically latch onto the main transmitter in your region.
If you have a TV Y splitter knocking around in the house somewhere, then it might be worth giving it a go (no garantee it will work mind) and also make sure that you rescan the TV channels on the smart box afterwards.
I cannot get any ITV channels on my TV this evening tried retuning TV but can only get BBC channels ?????
Is there a NowTV box implicated in here anywhere?
