Retuning (or rescanning) your set-top box is fairly straightforward. But, some set-top boxes and TVs retune automatically, others need to be manually retuned.
To manually retune you need to press “Menu” on your remote control and follow the on-screen instructions or those printed in your manual.
The process may differ slightly depending on which manufacturer box you have however typical sequence is:
- 1. Press MENU on your remote control.
- 2. From the Menu options, select the ‘Tuning Menu’
- 3. Select ‘Auto Setup’ or ‘Update’ to retune your digital TV*
- *also referred to as ‘Update’, ‘Rescan’, ‘Replace’ or ‘Store Channels’
If you need any more information, have a look at your manual or get in touch with the set-top manufacturer.
