    1) Turn on TV
    2) Press 3 on remote control.
    Sorted

    If you were looking for an intelligent response, I'd try posting in the correct forum.

    Can't it auto find? I've had a look on their website and there is no frequency listings at all. I think it depends exactly what area you are in, and to an extent the exact location of your aerial. It could always be a dodgy tv card, too.

    You may well get better answers in the computing section.

    You never know, Susie might move it to the computing section.

    (he says while moving closer to getting a formal warning, though hoping he wont)

    Hmmmm

    Sorry if wrong firum- was just in a rush and seemed and Anything Goes topic to me!

    Cheers for replies.

    Well managed to get BBC1 (711.312), BBC2 (655.312) and Channel 4 (679.312) working fine now but still the problems with ITV Anglia. Actually got hold of it once earlier but forgot to save and lost it and havent got it back since!

    Those cards are often quite fiddly to work with, but there should be quite a few channel listings in the manual. If not, you live somewhere that doesn't have TV and you should probably move your caravan on :p

    Tbh most of them have auto-scan which will find all the available signals and lock them in, you just fiddle with the channel numbers.

    The problem with PC TV cards is that they can't draw much power from the computer, so they don't have enough power to pull in a good signal, and can be buggers to tune. I had similar problems with mine. The quality isn't fantastic either, unless you recieve a strong signal. But they're useful. I watch mine most of the time as a small 5" picture in the corner of the screen. I only use the proper TV when watching films, etc.

    As for which frequencies to use - well, that depends upon where you live. Different areas of the country have different transmitters, transmitting the TV stations on different frequnecies. *nag time* Why not just use Google to look for them.
