According to the manual for the 42LC2D it should be able to receive local channels through a normal analogue antenna connected to the anntenna/cable coax input connector. You can get the manual here http://us.lge.com/download/product/file/1000001586/60PC1D-UE.pdf

How do I get sky from my set top box to work in a different room, I am trying to get my sky to work on a TV in a different room ? I have wired up TV coax cable from my sky box in sitting room and run


Hi Jim,
Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.

TV won't pick up channels 7-13


These are what once were VHF channels and are still mostly assigned to local stations.
You didn't mention the source for your received signals, if antenna, cable or satellite and it does make a difference as to the possible source of the problem.
If you are receiving via antenna, then the problem is within the set itself. If from one of the other two sources requiring a 'box,' then the problem is likely within the cable or satellite box that is between your incoming signal and the set.

I am unable to record digital tv channels on my LG RC389H dvd recorder. I have a new tv with a digital tuner and have hooked them up but unable to view any digital tv on my LG player only the old analogue...


The RC389H is only deigned to receive standard TV signals, not digital. If you are routing through a straight cable line you usually can't access anything above 100 if you don't have a digital tuner. Try using a cable/satellite box if you haven't already, this bypasses the requirement for a digital tuner because the cable/satellite box has one of it's own.

Invalid format


If you get that across all inputs or channels then your digital board is bad. If you get it only on one input such as HD cable box, HD satelitte receiver or Blu_Ray player then they are set for the wrong output on that connector. The TV most likely will only accept up to 720p or 1080i....

Not able to get digital channels


A lot of "digital LCD TVs did not have a digital tuner. All you can do is channel up and down through the normal analog channels. You may still have to get a convertor box or subscribe to a cable or satelitte service.

Check the Find Manuals link below on fixya.com or if you can't find your model, you can also check www.retrevo.com for owners manuals and specs.

Am i getting hdtv with just cable feed?


Depending on your cable provider, some of the HD channels may be present. If so, these are ususally located in the upper channel numbers. It sounds like you are receiving some of the HD lineup. A cable box will probably allow you to view more HD channels including the premium HD channels if you subscribe to them. You should not be noticing a delay with the HD channels only. If this is what you are experiencing without a cable box, then it would be an issue with the HD tuner built into your TV set. LG customer service can let you know if there are any software updates available for yourmodel that can resolve this. Additionally, if you are getting your sound from an Home Theater system then you will notice an echo if using the TV's built in speakers at the same time. This is sometimes mistaken as an audio delay. If you are using a home theater system, be sure to disable the speakers that are built into your system.
