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.

How to record digital tv thru reocrder

You need to go into the menu and set the "av-2 out put" to DTV, that should solve the problem, remembering to connect the "in" scart on the recorder to AV-2 on the tv.If there is only 1 scart on the recorder it will be a 2 way connection, sending and recieving a signal.
