Any pointers would be most appreciated before I have to pay for a technician.
Look for a SOURCE or INPUT button on your tv remote. It will either toggle between TV inputs, or bring up an input selection menu. You use it to select different inputs on the TV, like the internal tuner or external connections, like a cable or satellite box or a DVD/BluRay player.
If you've connected your UPC box to your tv using a HDMI cable, choose one of the HDMI options (which exact one will depend on which HDMI socket you have used). If you've have connected using a SCART cable, choose that (will probably show as EXT or AV)
