Finally got around to moving our old LCD into the living area for the kids today.

Previously had my Zinwell Freeview Receiver (ZMT-620HD) plugged into our old TV and simply unplugged it from the old one and plugged into the replacement TV.

That's where the fun begins.

Swapped to the appropriate channel for Freeview and suddenly getting "No channel available".
Hmm, strange.

So I went and did a automatic scan for channels and it came back with nothing, and just displays "No channel available".

I can confirm that the antenna cable that I'm using will give me Prime, Ch4 etc when plugged directly into the TV.
So it appears that I'm getting good reception (perfect picture on Prime and C4 as well as 1,2,3).

Any ideas?
Googled "no channel available" and came up with very little (when combined with Zinwell).

In our bedroom we have another TV (with built-in freeview) so I plugged the freeview receiver in there (my logic being that it was a different antenna cable AND I knew that the freeview signal was definitely being received). Sure enough, got the same error.
Will email next, but suspect this receiver is due for the bin... 8-(.

Emailed Next electronics (as they are the listed service centre).

Hmm, Next went into receivership on Jan 18.
