I have a new 40 inch Panasonic smart tv with built in everything. I set it up myself and love it. I have just bought a FreeviewPlus recorder (aerial Box T2200) and I just cannot get it to work. UHF aerial is connected to box, AV leads to tv, box power on: tv says 'no service'. Box instructions say 'select the video input you have connected your T2200 into.' How do I do that? Grrrr. What incredibly basic thing have I missed?? Help!

Thanks all: problem sorted. Biggles advised to use (i.e. buy) an HDMI cable to replace the AV leads that came with the box. One wonders therefore why the manufacturers continue to supply AV leads and not an HDMI cable ...

If you didn't get a manual with the box it can be found here.


Pg 37 tells you how to do Auto and Manual tuning.
