Deleting a channel?

by tfierens / January 8, 2009 8:40 AM PST


I've recently got a 40' Samsung Series 6 and I want to know and how to delete channels that were created via the auto-store?

It has duplicate channels and I simply want to remove them as I do not like have to flicker through channels I already have defined elsewhere.

I've looked through the manual, the web and the Menu of the TV and I cannot find anything on how to do this?

Can you please help?

Sorry for the delay, and thanks for your patience.

Page 37 lists how to erase and add channels that were loaded during the auto-tune function. This should help get rid of those unwanted channels.

Keep me posted.

As far as I can see at freeview is a hardware box, totally independent of your TV. That box lets you choose from channels, and any channel you choose is just displayed on the TV, be it a Samsung or a LG or a Sony. So blocking channels (or password protecting them) should be done via the box. How to do that should be in the freeview manuals and help stuff.

It might matter what kind of subscription you have: normal, HD, or +HD. If you can tell that, maybe one of our UK members knows more about the blocking.

Parental Controls.
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / March 3, 2011 8:49 PM PST

Well I use Freeview myself so next time I am using it I will check the options, but I found this at Freeview's own web site;

"Does Freeview have a parental lock facility?

All programmes are broadcast without viewing restrictions. Some digital boxes and TVs have a parental lock included in their specification which will enable you to control what can be viewed. We recommend speaking to your local retailer for more information

So it looks like it depends which digital box you have.

An alternative is to add the channels in the same group of favorites, then in the function "smart hub" there is a option "favorites" where you can select the group( "enter" in one channel inside), this action leaves only active channels you had selected previusly.

have the same problem, I have a un d40 6000 series, serial no.z2zf3ceb418787. In the "tools" there
is no DELETE option. My series 6 LED tv user manual has photos and
playing multiple files on page 37??? I note that several posters are having the same result, vis a vis that when "tool" is activated in the channel mode, there is no "delete" option in the pull down menu. I have an ln40a650 which does have the delete option under tools, but no such option is apparent on this model. Is it a software glitch?

The only way to delete channels is as follows:

1. Press SMART on your remote
2. Select "Channel"
3. Select the channel you want to delete
4. Go to upper right hand corner and select the small icon on the right with check mark symbols on it
5. Now you can delete that channel.
