All Freeview equipment must be retuned at midday on 30 September 2009

Published on by on UK Free TV

If you have ANY type of Freeview receiver, you will have to retune it on 30 September 2009.

To allow the introduction of Freeview HD, and to ensure that FIVE can be watched from the public service digital TV transmitters, ALL Freeview equipment must be retuned on WEDNESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER 2009 AT LUNCHTIME.

A simple "Add channels" scan will NOT be sufficient. This will result in channels being allocated the wrong numbers.

IF YOU NO LONGER HAVE ITV3, ITV4, FIVE, ITV2+1 or QUEST or they appear on channels numbered 800-899 then you have only "scanned for new channels". Go back and scan again using the "First time installation" option.

If you have a Daewoo DS608P, Labgear DTT100, Triax DVB 2000T, Portland DP100 set top box or these VCR/STBs: Daewoo SV900 or Bush IDVCR01, you need a new box.
