The channels are most likely part of a premium package and are scrambled. Talk to your service provider about this.

Depending on the age of the TV it's possible the tuner is limited.

It's also possible the region the set was intended for didn't allow TV's access to these frequencies (Asia or Europe).

Lastly, your tuner maybe bad. You'll need to compare the specs for the Sony set to one of your other sets.


Here's some info I dug up on your Bravia TV (foreign market version):

For the Foreign market: UK Specs and the tuner info: DVB-C

For the US market model US Specs and the tuner info: Clear QAM

As you can see the tuners are not the same which could explain things if you are using this set in the US (north america).

Here's a good guide on the different countries TV frequencies: Television channel frequencies

Lastly heres a good reference on the US cable TV frequencies: Cable Television Channels vs Frequency in MHz

Answer is very simple: When you select Macedonia, Croatia and some other countries TV does not search all frequencies. Because of some lazy and hasty people in Sony , Philips , LG... which didn't check all cable providers in those countries. So when you select DVBC (or before) you have to go to digital settings and choose fully

For Sony

(Channel Setup -> Digital TV Settings -> Digital Setup -> Auto Search Range -> Fully)

(in Croatia: Postavljanje kanala->Postavke za digitalni TV->Digitalno podešavanje->Raspon automatskog pretraživanja->Potpuno)

For Philips

After you select DVBC and Digital or Digital and analog or analog instead of start (pokreni) you have to go on settings (postavke) and channel search method (metoda traženja kanala) Full (Puno )
