The Sony kitchen tv had no reception of about 15 channels including sky
news this morning. Retune, no better. Check signal with analyser. Power
cycle, retune, everything except ch52 mux. Manual tune, puts sky news on
844. Move it to 132. This is a telly of course that was made at a time
when it was thought digital wouldn't catch on.

Put kettle on.

Ah yes, My Smart talk box sometimes does this sort of weirdness. I have a
feeling its a software issue, as you stand the best chance of getting the
right result if you can convince it it has no signal at all. Sadly where I
live that is easier said than done, but if you can, it instantly says it
needs setting up and will go through find no channels and then give up. At
this time you put in the aerial and although the number of channels it
announces is nearly always wrong, all the channels work. No dead, obviously
not enough debugging.
