Do you have your set connected to a terrestrial aerial as well as your Virgin cable box, if you do, try unplugging the Virgin box and let the TV retune itself ...alB

"1) no i dont have a terrestrail aerial":

You need an External Aeriel to pick up Standard TV Channels & Freeview Channels.

As MCE2K5 has stated you do need a terrestrial aerial for freeview, I think the channels you have at the moment are stored in your Virgin box, hence the reason you are using channel 6 and the Virgin remote to change channels, how is your Virgin box connected to the TV at the moment ...alB
