Problem Setting up Digital Box
« on: 23, September 2013, 08:41:56 AM »

I just bought my digital box (Loranz freeview HD LZ0031STB). I also bought a UHF antenna as required. Plugged the digital box into the UHF aerial cable, the initial installation menu comes up, all the settings are the same as the instruction manual, it scans for channels, but it then comes up "database empty" and there are no channels at all!

Does it mean I am not getting the Freeview signal that's why no channel is saved?

I plugged in the UHF antenna in either the coaxial or the RF slot but didn't work. I also tried to position the antenna (vertically outside the house) but no luck.

My location is in Karori, Wellington.

Any other remedy I can do?

I wanted to ask help from an expert antenna installer but his pricing is a rip off. Wanted to DIY first and make sure I have the correct equipments before I do any consultation.

Make sure you are plugging the UHF aerial into the RF in socket (left most connector) - not RF out or the coaxial connectors
