    How to Recover Deleted TV Channels

    This time in we are going to teach how to tune the channels deleted from the TV in a simple way. No need to know about technology, or have a latest generation smart tv, in this post as long as the TV is color

    is enough.

    After a tiring day at work, you have sat in front of the TV, trying to watch some of the programs broadcasted by your favorite station. However, after a few minutes you realized that the channel you were interested in no longer exists and you suspected that you had accidentally deleted it: for this reason, you immediately opened Google in search of a guide that could teach you how to remedy the problem, which happened right here on my website.

    If that's the case, I'm happy to tell you that you're in the right place at the right time. During this tutorial, in fact, I will explain to you

    how to recover deleted TV channels

    , quickly and easily, using the functions built into the TV itself.

    So, without waiting any longer, cut out a few minutes of free time for yourself and read everything I have to say on the subject very carefully: I am sure that, within a few minutes, you will be able to put into practice the "tips" I am going to give you, thus solving the inconvenience that has arisen. Good reading and good viewing!

    Preliminary information

    Basically, there are two possible ways to recover TV channels deleted by mistake: manually tune and place channels on the TV set or opt for automatic resetting

    . In the first case, you can manually indicate the "data" relative to the channel to be added to the pre-existing list (frequency, band, etc.), so that the TV set can perform a specific search.

    In the second case, instead, tuning is automatic: the TV performs a new channel search and, after completely deleting the previous list, automatically adds them to a new list.

    Depending on the number of deleted channels, it is convenient to choose one or the other: if, for example, you have accidentally deleted only one channel, I suggest you put the channel back by performing a manual tuning; if, instead, you have deleted several channels together, or you have deleted the entire list of channels, then I suggest you recover them by performing a new automatic tuning of the TV set.

    How to recover deleted TV channelsOnce


    have clarified the differences between the types of tuning that can be used, it is time to take action and find out, in concrete terms, how to recover deleted TV channels

    , both through manual and automatic tuning. Everything is explained in detail below.

    Manual tuning: I can't see mediaset channels

    To recover deleted channels by mistake

    , the first step is to find the correct frequencies for them, so that they can be put back after manual tuning.

    You can obtain this information by visiting the websites of the stationsyou are interested in and looking for the section dedicated to frequencies operating on the national territory: for example, by connecting to this page of the Mediaset website, you can search for the frequencies of the group's stations by selecting the region, province and municipality to which you belong and clicking on the View channels


    Alternatively, you can use the Dtti website, which allows you to identify the frequencies of almost all the digital terrestrial channels in each city: to use it, connect to the home page of the service, select the name of your region and then click on the name of your city

    , to see the complete list of channels with the relevant digital terrestrial frequencies.

    If you cannot find the information you are interested in this way either, you can also search Google using a key phrase such as [station name] frequencies [region/city]. In any case, make a note of the clear information about the station you are interested in (channel, frequency, band and mux

    ), as it will come in handy shortly.

    Once you have gathered the necessary information, to manually tune the TV, first access the main menu of the TV, then go to the channel screen and , from there, access the section dedicated to manual tuning/tuning. Next, use the proposed screen to specify the channel, band, frequency and mux mentioned above and, when ready, press the button to start the search


    For example, if you are trying to find out how to recover deleted LG TV channels, follow these steps: after turning on the TV, press the gear-shaped button on the remote control, select the All Settings (⋮) option from the menu that appears on the screen (right) and press the OK

    button, to access the management area dedicated to the TV settings.

    Next, select the Channels button (left), then the Tuning and Channel Settings item and check that the programming mode is set to Antenna (otherwise it is) and go to the Manual Tuning section, entering your TV's security PIN

    if necessary.

    At this point, select the DTV Antenna item to indicate that you want to search for digital terrestrial frequencies, use the indicators shown below to specify the channel, frequency and bandwidth and, after checking that the signal strength is acceptable, select the Update button and press the OK

    button on the remote control. Repeat the same steps for each channel you want to retrieve and you're done!

    For more information about tuning channels on LG, Samsung or Akai TVs, please take a look at the specific guides I created for you.

    Unfortunately, I cannot give you very precise information on all TVs on the market, as the pages of my site would not be enough to cover all the different cases! If necessary, I suggest you consult the user manual of your TV, or Google a phrase similar to "manual tuning" [TV brand and model]


    Automatic tv channel tuning

    If you are interested in recovering the channel list of your TV because, for example, you have accidentally deleted it (or because many channels have suddenly disappeared), I suggest you opt for automatic TV tuning

    : it allows you to create a new channel list and fill it completely automatically.

    The steps required to retune a TV vary from one manufacturer to another: generally speaking, what you need to do is press the Menu/Settings button on the remote control, go to the channel section and , from there, access the screen dedicated to automatic tuning, taking care to activate the automatic sorting of channels (on some TVs, this function is called LCN


    If, in particular, you are interested in how to recover deleted Samsung TV channels

    , you will be pleased to know that the big South Korean TVs have a handy menu dedicated to automatic tuning.

    Then, first, press the Menu button on the remote control, select the Transmit item (on the left), using the arrow buttons on the remote control, press the OK button and select Auto

    Tune twice in a row.

    At this point, aware that the search will clear the existing channel list, press the Start button to move to the next step: then set the Antenna menu to Antenna, the Channel Type menu to Digital, and finally the Channel Sort menu to Auto Sort. When you are done, press the Scan button and

    wait for the TV to complete the channel scan.

    If you see any warnings about numbering conflicts, press the OK button several times to resolve the problem. When you are finished storing channels, press the Close

    button to exit the menu.

    Of course, the menu items and buttons to press may vary between Samsung TV models: for further clarification on this aspect, I suggest you take a look at my guide on how to tune channels on Samsung TV.

    As I mentioned above, it is not possible for me to provide you with the specific information for TVs marketed by other manufacturers: if you need an extra hand, you can take a look at the user manual of your device, or do a Google search using as key how to tune channels [TV brand and model]

    Because tv channels are lostWith

    digital terrestrial TV many new channels have arrived.
    Through the automatic tuning of your set-top box or your TV set, you could easily receive them in the days after the transition to the new digital TV.
    Some brands and models of new generation TV sets with integrated digital terrestrial tuner, on the occasion of the blackout and in the following days, reported some strange malfunctions: once turned off or put on standby are no longer able to be stored in memory . automatically tuned channels .
    Why everything worked before the blackout and now not? Did the new TV set broke down?
    Before you rush to take the device to the service, maybe it's not a technical failure, and you can try to unlock the memorization of channels directly with your remote control through simple operations.
    In fact, this problem is often encountered in new TV sets due to the duplication of digital terrestrial channels , which are tuned and stored several times in the lists because they are transmitted by several repeaters that are not synchronized with each other.
    The duplication of channels therefore generates errors in the automatic tuning memorization of the TV.To solve this annoying problem you can opt for two solutions:

    Reset your TV to factory settings and download the latest software update (firmware) available


    Then perform the automatic tuning again.Or always after factory reset , set the automatic tuning and, in the middle of the tuning operation, stop it and tune the other channels with a manual searchIn case of problems when synchronizing channels

    Sorry? You followed the instructions I gave you in this guide but, despite that, you could not find the "lost" channels?

    As a first solution, I suggest you scroll through the list of TV channels, checking if the channels you are interested in have been placed in different numbers than expected. If so, simply reorder

    the channels so that they are in the order you want them to be: I have explained how to do this in my guide to reordering TV channels and in my tutorials dedicated specifically to Philips and Samsung brand TVs.

    If, on the other hand, you could not pick up again the channels you are interested in (or if the signal is disturbed), then the problem could be due to a malfunction of the TV

    antenna: if you have some experience in this, you can try to adjust the orientation of the antenna by following the steps I have given you in this guide.

    If the situation does not resolve itself, I recommend that you contact a technician specialized in the installation of antennas and televisions, who will be able to find a solution to your problem.
