This seems to be a common question - its actually caused either by no signal at your aerial (which is the most common as Freeview are constantly changing frequencies) or at the worst case scenario by a faulty tuner on the i/o board - you will probably find connecting a pvr to the hdmi slots works using the tv aerial so that could mean its the tv - if the aerial doesnt work with a pvr or other box then its most likely the aerial not pulling enough signal.
The check is to plug the aerial rf into a youview or tivo box and then see if you get a signal through hdmi to the tv - this can prove its the tuner circuit on the tv i/o board - sometimes it can be cured by reloading the firmware even if its the same revision as the firmware may have been damaged but 90% of the time its a hardware issue and needs an electornics repair or buy and swap a i/o board from ebay!
The best way to check is to have the aerial checked either using a meter you can buy from Amazon or get an installer to check the aerial. In most likelihood if its in the UK its the aerial not pulling in enough signal because of recent changes to freeview channels - you can check if your area is affected on their website and in some instances they can replace your aerial for free if their changes have caused the problem!

Do a first time installation, move the TV or bite the bullet and either buy an external aerial or extend the main house aerial cable to reach the TV. assuming your TV has no signal where it is now
