Hiyaaaa! My Freeview TV has gone a bit to pot since 1st Jan. First it started saying no signal, now it says No carrier when i try to auto tune and also Database empty. I'm LOST!!!!!
I've tried to do a manual tune, but not sure what carrier No. to put in. Any ideas of the best one for Rosemarkie?
I'm pretty hopeless with these things!!!!
