Hey guys, I’m trying to setup this TV so the antenna works. I have a cable and Sat line both active but tuning is not working. Basically I’m using the lines connected to the adaptor and plugging it into the Antenna port on the tv. I’ve tried both Sat and Cable with the adaptor and I can’t get it to work. Any help please!

TV model is -Samsung UE55K5100AK 5 Series

Yes mate try that I use indoor TV areal for a quid and does job pmsl

I'll try this. If it fails and I buy that indoor junk aerial from Poundland and that fails. I'll pray Man City smash Chelsea 7-0 on Weekend!

TV probably can only tune terrestrial TV not sat or cable.

Could you possibly see in the spec. I've looked myself but couldn't find a definitive answer.

Your TV only has a DVB-T2 tuner according to above specs so you can't use sat or cable feeds. Even if your TV had a DVB-C tuner, they don't work on Virgin, I think they are more aimed at other countries.


EDIT: I missed the C at the end of tuner type so it does have combi terrestrial / cable tuner but as I mentioned above, in the UK tv's with cable tuners dont work on virgin

What is the point in trying to scan DVB-C, you will only get 3 free channels.

My misses gets Eastenders and I get the Football in peace that's the point!

You've missed remote and batteries and power lead off your long list pmsl

LMFAO I didn't realise it was that long.
