I was given a Thompson set top box and remote control a few years ago with no destruction booklet.
Well i connected it all up with the appropriate wires and things to my beautiful Matsui CRT TV and had instant ag,long screens,short screens,letterbox screens,on the long screen Bruce Forsyths chin would have been on my floor,however fixing the remote control i was able to correct all that as mentioned below.
First of all the remote control was acting extremely remotely and was rattling so i took it to bits and fixed it.
Now the instruament works wonderfully ''a joy to beHOLD'',''BUT'' whatever i do concerning manual or auto tuning it completely dodges and doesn't recognize ITV 1,or the old channel 4 or 5. ITV 1 i never ever watch,its all soaps and game shows,but 4 and 5 i quite like. I can get everything else under the sun including loads of channels not even Freeview.But those three channels just don't seem available.Any ideas would be appreciated before i splash out on a new wretched box thing.

I've just discovered that i'm getting Channels 4+1,5+1 whatever they are plus some ITV plus 1's.None of these are in TV Choice.
