hello.
Just brought a DSE HD freeview reciever and having issues setting it up to my Sumsung TV.
I'm connecting it though the HDMI cable but its not appearing in the list of channels (My PS3 appears if I plug it into the HDMI). There there something wrong? I could set it to the TV channel on my TV - but I do a digital scan and
How do I access the freeview reciever to tune it?.
THX!

The DSE freeview|HD boxes do not output anything over RF (so you cannot tune it to a channel on your TV), they just have an RF output to pass the UHF signal through to other devices.

As said above, the light on them is ON when the unit is OFF (silly, but hey). Other than that, it should just work over HDMI. Have you tried a different cable? Was it a brand new unit, or had someone else used it before (I don't know if you can turn off the HDMI on them, but if it isn't brand new, this may have been done).

Id suspect its forcing to component or similar and HDMI is off.... try conencting it via another method and see what happens.

With DSE DVD players (or the ones I had used), a lot of the "good" features are turned off by default.
Probably similar with the FV boxes...

Silly question, but didn't they supply any kind of user manual with it?
Most user manuals have a decent, set-up or getting started section.

You can download a copy of the user manual for the DSE Digital Terrestrial Receiver DSE-620 from the Dick Smith website here: http://www.dse.co.nz/dse.shop/4bd507e2020eb03a2741c0a87f3b068f/Export/catalogs/SUPG7503

No manual needed on the ones I have set up, plug in turn on, few clicks of the remote that were so simple that I cant recall what they were and it was working.

IMO it was either off or it is faulty.

What model TV do you have? If you can do a digital scan it's probably got a Freeview|HD tuner built in so there is no need for an external box.

Those boxes can also take a minute or two for a signal to come out of them.

My Sony LCD does not seem to recognise an HDMI source if it is turned on after the TV.  If the DSE Freeview receiver is set to HDMI output try turning it on and, after a few moments, turn on the TV.

I know it is not a likely fix but maybe, just maybe.
