Question about Televison & Video
Not getting all channels on LG 42PQ1000. Shop has replaced first unit and antena company say I'm receiving too much signal from roof-top aerial and will need an in-door attatchment to reduce incoming signal. Is this true? The aerial was adapted a year or so ago to pick up DTV reception.My previous flatscreen worked and still does work perfectly. Nothing has been changed in terms of plugs or cables.

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.
Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).
If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.
Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

I install a lot of magic eyes etc.
You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.
the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.
Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.
If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.
Hope this sorts out your problem

SOURCE: Tvs get reception from an
The tuner on the LG TV may be right on "the hairy edge" of being able to receive that signal. Therefore the processor won't acknowledge and display it. You may want to try the LG on one of the other antenna feeds were the TVs DO display that channel. You might want to try the LG with no other sets hooked up. You may have a problem with any of the following. - staple through a wire - cracked lead-in wire or damaged coax - problem with a distribution amp/splitter.
