How To Setup Digital Freeview

All digital boxes come with instructions on how to set up.

With your Freeview digital box you should have the following items:

Power lead
Remote control and batteries
Scart lead (some Freeview digital boxes don’t come with a Scart lead, but they are available from most electrical retailers)

GOTO STEP BY STEP GUIDE

Still having problems, just follow the simple steps below.

STEP 1

Take out the aerial lead from the back of your TV (this connects the aerial socket in the wall and your TV) and put this end into the aerial socket on the digital box. The socket should be marked ‘RF In’, ‘Antenna’, ‘Aerial’ or ‘Ant In’.

STEP 2

Put one end of the Scart lead into the digital box, this socket is usually labelled ‘TV’ or ‘Scart 1’ and the other end into the first Scart socket on your television. If your TV does not have a Scart socket, then certain digital boxes with something called an ‘RF modulator’ will allow you to use another aerial cable to connect the digital box to the TV.

STEP 3

Put your TV on standby and then switch the TV on using your television remote control.

STEP 4

Plug the power lead into your new Freeview digital box and turn it on. Most televisions will automatically detect the digital box, if not go to the AV1 channel on your TV remote control.

STEP 5

Most digital boxes are ready to automatically start tuning. If you have problems with tuning see our Retuning Guide. Once your Freeview digital box is tuned, you’ll be able to save the channels you have found and go to BBC1. You can now use your Freeview remote control to explore the range of channels.
