    Have you asked the warden at all Stephen ?
    And have you done a full search on both ATV and DTV ?
    We was on a site up near Scotch Corner that was weird.
    They received DTV but their system converted it to ATV for some reason !

    There lays your answer.
    The whole of the country is now digital....you either need a set top box or a new tv.
    No other way round it.

    If you are using a sat reciever you must have the signal source set to SCART or HDMI.
    Neither of which will allow terrestrial digital broadcasts without a digibox of some description being connected by scart or hdmi.
    There WILL be an option for DTV, which is the internal reciever, within the source menu.

    What make and model is the tv ?

    My Avtex TV has two aerial connection, one for satellite and one for terrestrial. It doesn't need a separate box for either but of course not all TVs are the same.

    You need to look for source on the remote and press it
    Select digital
    Once selected look for menu on the remote and press that
    Look for either tuning or installation
    You should then be able to figure out how to get channels

    This is always presuming your van has actually got a tv aerial on it ?

    I think the aerial is provided by the campsite....communal aerial in a poor reception area.
    This also makes me wonder...is the sites post connected to the vans external aerial point via an aerial hookup connection lead.

    Have you set the TV to retune itself? On mine you access this through the remote by pressing setup.

    If the aerial is plugged in to the telly then it should work providing you go through the set up as I mention in #12 post Stephen :)
