Hi

 

I have a VEON 22" TV as per this instruction manual
http://docs.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/pdfs/other-info/9420040603268%20VEON%20VN1912LED.pdf

I have tried both auto and manual digital tv tuning but only 8 channels are received and none of them are TV 1, 2, or 3. They are channels such as Al Jazeera or The Shopping Network.

 

I have connected the TV to the bottom left port on the wall outlet shown below. Does anyone know how I can pick up the other channels?

Have you confirmed that there is actually an antenna on the other end of that cable?

Freeview digital is broadcast using the concept of a mux (short for multiplex).
A mux can carry a group of 'channels'.
This means that you might be able to receive one mux ok and pick up tv1,2,duke etc but nothing else if there are signal problems with receiving other mixes clearly.
So you have tuned in the mux that carries those channels you have found.
Roughly from memory the TVNZ channels are on one mux, tv3,4 etc are on another and prime, Maori TV are on yet another.
You probably have issues with your wiring or aerial alignment.

Digital TV is perfect picture, but requires a quality signal. Good signal = reception. Poor signal = nothing.

Does anyone know what the top two points on the wall outlet are for? At my previous home these were connected together via a small curved white cable and if the cable was removed the TV stopped working

They are satellite connectors, with two of them there I can only assumes one is an input and the others and output?

They are f connectors which are normally for satellite but often for UHF too. Without pulling the plate off the wall and tracing where the cables go there's no way of knowing. What sort of antennae are there on your roof?
