Question about LG 42PX4DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I don't know whether anyone can help me with this problem, or whether I am just imagining it. Yesterday I added a new Freeview box to my LG 42PX4DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma and it is working perfectly. However, when I switched the Input channel back to DTV to view the integrated Digital (Freeview) channels, something seemed to be missing! The Guide button still works and I can still see times and details of other Digital channels, but when I select a channel to view, I no longer see the blue bar at the bottom of the screen showing the name of the channel, the programme details and how much time is left. I am sure that this used to appear before I altered the connections at the back of the set. I have tried removing the new FreeView box and restoring the original connections but this hasn't helped. Have I perhaps accidentally turned this display off, and if I have how on earth do I switch it back on again? Can someone please help?
The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

When you boot up your tv for the first time, you get to choose between home and shop-mode.
In your case, he TV is set to "shop-mode".
Then it will go back to factory settings after 5-10 minutes. (so that customers won't mess up the settings all the time)
So change the settings from shop to home, and your problem is fixed!

Just because your'e in a Freeview area doesnt necessarily mean you can recieve Freeview signals successfully without having to make other changes.
The most common other change you need to make is to install a different or higher performance aerial, or it needs to be re-located somewhere where it can get a better "view" of the transmitter, e.g. if it is currently mounted in the loft space then this may well give a good enough signal for the old analogue TV but wont be good enough for digital. It will need to be relocated outside, as high up as possible, and accurately pointed towards the transmitter.
Unfortunately without being able to examine your particular installation, it's impossible to say whether your current aerial is good enough for digital, but hopefully this gives you some ideas where to start, and if nothing else, help you discuss your problems if you engage the services of an aerial/TV engineer.
