How to set digital terrestrial (DTT) channels on PANASONIC TX

When DTT (Digital terrestrial television) updates, as in April 2016 when it launched HD channel access, you need to set up DTT channels on your TV PANASONIC TX.

This setting consists of a channel search on your PANASONIC TX so that these are received by your TV.

In this article we present how to search for channels in three major cases: automatic search without DTT adapter, automatic search with DTT adapter, and manual search in case of difficulties.

Automatic channel search without DTT adapter on PANASONIC TX

If you do not have a DTT adapter, here’s how to proceed: start by turning on your PANASONIC TX, and press the “Menu” button on your remote control. Select “Setup”, which can also be called “Main Menu”, “System Menu”, “Tool Menu”, “Setup Menu” or “System Setup”.

Then select “Installation”, or “Scan” or “Rescan” depending on the software installed on your PANASONIC TX.

For the next steps, please do not select “update” on your PANASONIC TX!

After going to “Installation”, choose “Reinstall-Find All Channels” or “Automatic Search”. For some models of PANASONIC TX, this may also be called “Erase Channels”, “Reset Channels”, or “Service Setup”.

A password can be requested, enter yours or the one written in the manual of your PANASONIC TX.

It is normal that a message warns you about the erasing of old channels, just accept and press “Start” or “Search”.

Manual channel search on your PANASONIC TX

It may happen that after the automatic search, you no longer have your local channels or a main channel displays a black screen. No panic, manual channel search on PANASONIC TX is your solution! However, it is a complicated manipulation that takes a little more time.

If you have an adapter, connect to the screen of your adapter as seen above, and then follow the steps below.

If you do not have one, use the remote control of your PANASONIC TX.

Retrieve channel’s canal number

To start the operation, you must have the canal number of the channel you wish to search manually on your PANASONIC TX.

To do this, use the “My DTT coverage” search engine on the Ofcom official website.

Be careful, this is not the number you want to enter on the remote control to watch the channel but a canal number between 21 and 60 which indicates the frequency on which this channel is broadcast in your area.

You may then be able to watch it on your PANASONIC TX.

Start manual channel search on PANASONIC TX

Start by pressing “Menu” and go to “Configuration”.

It can also be called “Main Menu”, “System Menu”, “Tool Menu”, “Setting Menu”, or “System Settings”.

Then, select the “manual search” option and enter the canal number of the desired channel. Select “Ok” or “confirm”, or “exit”.

The hardest is done, you can now go check the presence of the channel on your PANASONIC TX!
