My son used the cord from a kettle for our LG plasma TV (we cant find the TV cord) it isnt working properly. The pixals breakup. I said we needed a audio/video specific cord.Is that right?

Hi if the cord fits the kettle and the television then great, They both run off the same electricity current meaning the electricity won't harm television or cord... Smart kid :)

Problem with digital tv

The Antenna may be in a weak signal area heres a quick cheap fix
Get a Freeview Box and connect it via SCART LEAD to your tv, if the Box picks up a good signal then your tuner may be very weak..
You may want to try a BOOSTER to the TV first, and if that fails go with an external freeview. My neighbor has a 42 and the freeview box WITHOUT an antenna attached resolves all the give that a try. I have a goodmans too with a slow tuner and I have to retune it sometimes even though it gets a good signal from the antenna. I will be getting an external tuner freeveiw box.

I cant receive freeveiw channels

I don't know what make of TV you have but some manufacturers have two tuners at the rear of the TV. One for terrestrial signal & one for digital signal. If this is the case put the aerial into the digital input & try retuning. If this does not work then if you could provide the details of you TV eg. make & model, then I will try to help you further.

I have a Samsung LCD HDMI 37inch TV series 5 do I need a set top box

You have a really nice TV, you have a built in ASTC tuner(digital).
If you want to recieve OTA(over the air) signals, all ypu will need is an antenna.
Visit this site for some great info on digital TV.

Let me know if I can provide further assistance

Recieving no digital channels in my LCD TV

hi there alot of the updates for the system should automaticly download via ariel to the tv to keep you up to date some times if the strenght of the signal isnt srong enough then you might not get the update they send out , one thing i have found is that if you use an ariel booster then this makes the signal stronger this helps particularly if you have more than one tv set up with the same ariel, you could try unpluging all ariels to other tvs making sure the ariel lead you are using has no conections in it as this also gives you loss of signal if there are multiple conections in the lead runing from the ariel to your tv set hope this helps some

Cheers ;)
