Terrestrial digital (Freeview/Freesat) box or Sky Satellite box, not responding to remote command or frozen?

Technology is not just there yet so they need to be "re-booted" just like a computer. Try disconnecting the device from the electrical supply for 5 minutes, then re-connect to power.

Digital terrestrial reception from wrong transmitter?

This commonly happens when unwanted signals are prior to wanted signals ie: if you require high frequency's from the Midhurst transmitter. When a "auto scan"is requested try plugging the aerial in the input of receiver approximately 60% though it`s channel scan, this will cause the receiver to ingnoor the unwanted channels.

TV or Aerial/Satellite fault?

Try a DVD or video on the TV, if these do not work then it could be the TV.
Other TV's working off the same system? If these show the same problem or fault, indeed the aerial or satellite reception system may be the cause.

Problems with Audio (sound) & or video on TV?

Typical cause could be a loose or un-connected lead (HDMI or Scart) from receiver/video/DVD/etc to the display TV, many Scart leads are prone to coming adrift, try pushing in the connector firmly at the device end & the TV connection input.
