Hi there,

I'm not sure what we could have done to make you leave!

There's no obvious technical reason why this TV wouldn't work in NZ, so I would expect it's just a setting (or two) that needs to be changed as a result of the move. The TV has both digital and analogue tuners and is compatible with both UK PAL-I and NZ PAL-B/G video and audio systems.

Please check the following settings in the on-screen menus according to whether you are trying to tune analogue or digital channels. Then try the channel scan again.

Analogue channels:

1. Make sure you are in TV mode (analogue) and not DTV mode (digital); Use the SOURCE button on the front of the TV or the remote to change modes or the TV/DTV button on the remote;
2. Press the MENU button on the remote to open the on-screen menu;
3. Use the VOL+/- (volume) buttons to select the "TUNING" menu;
4. Use the P+/- (channel) buttons to highlight "TUNING PROGRAM" and press VOL+ to open this sub-menu;
5. Use the P+/- buttons to highlight "COLOUR SYSTEM" then use the Vol+/- to set this to "PAL";
6. Use the P+/- buttons to highlight "SOUND SYSTEM" then use the Vol+/- to set this to "BG";
7. Go back to the "TUNING" menu, select country and set this to "NEW ZEALAND / NZ";

(NZ may not be available as an option but this setting is non-essential)

8. Run the "AUTO SEARCH";

If no channels are found, go back to step 5, set the "COLOUR SYSTEM" to "AUTO" and then run the "AUTO SEARCH" again.

Digital channels:

Digital transmissions are "universal" and do not follow PAL-I/B/G format. If you are trying to tune digital channels, simply make sure you are in DTV mode using the TV/DTV or SOURCE buttons on your remote control, then run the channel scan as follows:

The DTV menu uses different buttons to the TV menu. There are the UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT arrows towards the bottom of the remote for highlighting options and "OK" to select. If asked for a password during this process, the default is 0000. If you have set your own password you can use this instead, but the default should work even if you have forgotten it.

1. Press the "D.MENU" button on the remote control to open the Main Menu;
2. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight "Installation" and press "OK";
3. Highlight "First Time Installation" and press "OK" - you may be asked to enter the password;
4. Set the "Menu Language" to "English"; - or anything else you can understand ;)
5. Set the "Country" to "New Zealand / NZ";
6. Set the "TV Type" to "16:9";
7. Press "OK", then highlight "YES" and press "OK" again to start the channel search;

That's pretty much everything. If you've done all of the above and still can't get any channels on this TV, you should verify that you have a signal from the aerial by connection one of the known working TVs to this aerial connection.

If this checks out, please post back here for further assistance.

Mp3 player

First, plug it into your computer using the USB cord that should have came ith the player, then goto "my computer" or "computer" if using vista, then clik removable disk, or the name of your mp3 player, if there is a folder or directory called 'music' open, and drag the music in there, if there is no music folder, drag the music in there.

Getting playstation 3 sound coming out of dvd surround

This wont be very helpful, but, it is worth noting that although you may think you bought a "Wharfdale" product, i'm afraid you haven't. Chan bros. bought the rights to the name some time ago and so what you have is a cheap non-descript chinese import. sorry.
