Hi

ive just purchase a 2019 Q85 and it has free view and Freesat built in, when I set it up I did connect both, to the terrestrial aerial and also the satellite dish. During the setup procedure I'm sure I had to pick one or the other and I picked terrestrial, but now wish I'd done satellite (as I have terrestrial tv through my talk talk box).

does anyone know how I can no

Do auto retune and enable both terrestrial and satellite.

Once done you can switch between the two.

Have you retuned?

You then have to switch between terrestrial and sat. It took me a while to suss it out.

What should I do in order to retune? I cannot find a place in the menu to retune and to be able to choose both terrestrial and satellite tuners for picture source.

You have to make sure that you have selected either the satellite input to tune that or the terrestrial input to tune that in the settings.
does that make sense?

Where in the menu can I select it? All of the menu items for satellite are grayed. And does that mean, that I have to choose between watching terrestrial or satellite channels and that I can only use one tuner at a time? I thought it would - and taking into account the price of the unit I think it should - be possible to tune in both the terrestrial and satellite cahnnels and change the active tuner "on the fly".

Not sure why you would want terrestrial and satellite at the same time...you could only watch one lol

Pick which source you want first, I have TalkTalk on a normal aerial or the inbuilt satellitePick which source you want first, I have TalkTalk on a normal aerial or the inbuilt satellite

 

Then select settings and tune each oneThen select settings and tune each one
