Hello, I'm hoping someone can help. I have a Series 5 Samsung TV, and it won't find many/most Freeview TV channels when I connected to the aerial. My old TV (which was a Finlux) found all Freeview channels with no problem, so I know the signal must be good enough. Any ideas why the Samsung TV cannot find them? At the moment it is finding most BBC, Channel 4 and ITV channels plus a handful of others, but missing all the rest. I'm wondering if there's a setting somewhere that limits the type of signal it receives, or requires signals above a certain strength or something?
One thing to note, I read elsewhere on this forum about disconnecting any other connections and rescanning. I did that, and it was an improvement. Before, it only had about 3 or 4 channels, disconnecting my Xbox and rescanning improved it, but I'm still missing many. Any help very much appreciated!

I've tried retuning a few times. Some channels it picks up but they just come through disrupted, with broken image etc. Some are missing entirely: CBS Reality, Local channel (8), Pick, Quest, Q, Really, Dave, Drama, 5USA, Create and Craft, ITVBe, ITV2+1, 5Star, Paramount, Sony Movies, ITV+1, there are more but is that enough to go on? A few are coming through with poor quality, including 4Seven and Yesterday. All these were present with a clear picture on my old TV. When I retune, if I enable clearing old channels, they just disappear from the list, if I disable that then they are still in the list but have no image or sound. Software version is 1242.
