Problems tuning the tv in my London flat (N7 8EF - uses the Crystal Palace transmitter). Can tune most channels but ITV1, Channel 4 and other channels on the same band (UPH 22 I think) are not being picked up. Other TVs in the house running off the same aerial are picking these channels up.

Re: LG M227WDP tuning problems
Hello sounds like the memory IC to the TV has damaged. It is an IC, which stores all the cunsumer adjusted data, as digital signals, and retrives thme to the main system control IC, each time the set is switched ON. It is an 8 solder terminal one, a small IC. Even though, its size is small, function of this part is very crtical, when the set works. This IC can be located very near to the main system control IC, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. The only thing you need is, to locate this component on main baord, and desolder it out, and resolder a new one in place. Somewhat skilled work indeed.

You might have more than one transmitter. Some TV's etc only store a certain number of channels and have a max amount!. When weaker transmitters are present sometimes the memory of the TV will only store the stronger signals first from these weaker sites, with the two BBC channels being too weak to be detected. The solution is to do a manual search on the transmitters you know are very strong. For example if channel 43 has strong signal you would search on that. The auto search will start at 21 and work it's way to 69. But if your area transmitter with the strongest signals is high up the scale the weaker transmitters will be selected first!
These numbers are the LCN (Logical Channel Number) assigned by the broadcasters. It will only be at 350 if it is the same channel from a different transmitter. You need to know the 'channel' of the frequency to manually tune it in. You are talking about the program number not the channel (frequency), a common mistake. i.e ABC in Sydney is transmitted on CH12 (226.5Mhz) and the LCN's for each program are 2,21,22,23,24,201 & 201. If your antenna also picks up the signals from the Kings Cross transmitter ABC is CH30 (543.5Mhz), as these are later in the spectrum they are put in the LCN list starting at 350.
You can get a manual here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-lcd-tv-32LG30.jsp . Click on the Support and then on the right hand side look for User's Manuals. Since the TV has a tuner for ATSC, NTSC, and Clear-QAM, the next question is what is your signal source? (analog, digital and unscrambled cable)
If you are using OTA, make sure that the input is set to Antenna. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the direction to point your antenna and the appropriate antenna for your distance to the transmitter. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the list of channels you should be able to receive. tvfool gives the stations available with different antennas. If you have several tvs connected to one source, you may need an amplifier in addition to the splitter. This also can help marginal signals come in since digital is either enough for the tuner to resolve or no signal. (Check splitters and amplifiers if you suddenly can't get a signal that you used to receive. Also check if the antenna has been turned.)
Menu > Channel > Auto Tuning or Manual Tuning. If Lock System is active, you will need the password. Auto Tuning only searches for digital or cable channels. The manual tuning option should provide the signal strength as well for digital stations (as well as letting you search for analog signals or all signals (digital, analog, cable).
Use the input Cable for coax cable connections. Other inputs will not allow you to search for channels since they are meant to be controlled by the set-top box feeding the system.
You simply need to perform the auto-setup when you first use the television. The freeview HD channels will tune in at the same time as the standard def. (SD) channels. You will find them in your channel list but there are only 3 freeview HD channels currently available - BBC HD (Channel 50), ITV1 HD (Channel 51) and Channel 4 HD (Channel 52).
If these channels are missing, it's may be because the HD broadcasts haven't started in your area yet. Please visit this page and enter your postcode to find out if you can get these channels:
There are a few problems turning up as a result of the update. Do a factory settings on the box if it has the option to do so. Be aware of the actual transmitter you are on and the channels/frequencies it uses so when tuning you know whether its finding channels at the bottom, middle or top of the band. Sometimes you may need to unplug the aerial upto or after a particular channel to stop the box tuning unwanted transmitters. If you are picking more than 1 transmitter up you will often get extra channels in wrong locations
I had a similar problem. You need to press the 2nd button down on the remote 3 arrows should appear on the screen. then use the volume + and - buttons to tune to correct channel. once the correct channel has been reached you need to enter the number of the channel u want stored ie 03. Hope this helps.
no problem occur on your set but the only problem is you can not lock the fine tuning (in manual procedure) but is it better to set the program to AUTOSCAN OR AUTO PROGRAM and authomatically tune and save to the memory all the program channel
