    Hiya, Not technical savvy so here you go. Got a digihome TV, got a WI FI connector/booster but getting no network signal - any ideas please? Even when I change source still getting the same thing. Tried both sockets on the side of the telly.

    Digihome TV, full model number?

    Wi-Fi connector / booster, again full model number?

    "Even when I change source still getting the same thing."

    What source to what source?

    "Tried both sockets on the side of the telly."

    Tried what in what sockets?

    Telly is a 39180SM FHD LED TV
    USB Dongle
    2 x USB ports on the side of the telly
    No 1 x HDMI port on back of telly
    No. 2 x HDMI port on back of telly


    On remote there is a source button that comes up with a list of TV, HDMI 1, 2, Ext. When I press the youtube button on the remote then that's when I get no network connection. Ta.

    Sorry. Told you not technical. USB dongle is a VEZZY2000 802.11 2 x 2 that's all that is on it. Connected the end of the cable that is part of the booster that the dongle fits into either of the 2 USB ports on the telly. Anthing else I'm struggling.

    The TV and associated parts came from friends and it worked for them.

    Sounds like you are missing a step.

    After you plug the dongle into the TV, you need to go into the MENU on the TV and find NETWORK SETTINGS.

    Then you should be able to set up the WIFI connection and put your password in.

    THEN try the YouTube button.

    In that case follow lammy82's post.

    But reading the reviews on Amazon for a four year old TV , I doubt YouTube will still work as it has been updated several times over the years and I doubt Digihome offered any updates for it..

    Can be that the software for the digi home tv are not compatible other than any issue with the connectors.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Nope. Will probably have to drag friends over. That seems the best I think.
