First time posting here as I bought this TV on Monday. Amongst a few other problems I've noticed in the short space of time I've had it.. (Game Motion Plus Off makes colours more washed out - Game motion plus on causes stuttering/juddering in FIFA) The most obvious one appears to be that it wont find any normal terrestrial channels.
None at all. Zero!
It only finds the 70 channels from Samsung plus tv.
No BBC, no ITV, nothing else free to air.
It's only now coming to my attension through a lot of sifting through these and other forums, that this tv might need a dedicated aerial to tune in freeview channels. Is this correct? I haven't been able to find anything concrete, no matter that I search. Currently I'm just plugging in the cable from the tv wall port in my room directly into the tv.
Nothing is found when scanning and manual tuning is greyed out and unable to be used, no matter what I've tried.
Plugged the cable back into my old Sony and rescanned, picked up all the old freeview channels fine. Still nothing on the Samsung.
Is this just an oversight on my part, and samsung assumes everyone has Sky/Virgin/Cable these days and the tv isn't freeview ready? Forgot that was even a thing if I'm honest! lol
Oh dear I was hoping you had solved it. I have been all over the web trying to find answers unsuccessfully. Samsung themselves seem unclear. Freeview says newer Samsung tvs don't have it built in but sales staff and one person who has a q95t say 2020 models do. I wonder if they mean Freesat not Freeview, Would be interesting to hear what they tell you! I was looking at q95t but also others. Am really struggling with this as do not want to buy a tv and find it doesn't work unless I start subscribing to Sky and but boxes/satellite dishes etc!
That's good to hear that you like it so far but surely to get Netflix, etc you are subscribed to something like Sky, etc? I thought from what you said originally that you did not subscribe to any packages so were trying to tune in just Freeview channels. I just have BT broadband so no other way of picking up signals apart from wifi and/or my ordinary outside tv aerial.
