Send it back ASAP and get a replacement! I'm serious. You wouldn't want to baby sit this lemon by missing work because you're waiting for a home service tech provided by the company. When the tech comes, he will not have the part required to fix the unit and you'll be waiting at least a week to get another service call. That's another day missing work. You are one lucky guy if the servicer can totally fix the unit to your satisfaction in two visits. Days missed at work could very well add up into buying a new TV. Do not take ownership of this problematic unit especially if you just bought it. Send it back!

You may not have the resolution set to hd even though you are on the channel. Confirm that you are using hd cable and your set is displaying 720p or greater. This will sometimes pop up on the screen when you tune to a hd channel. it sounds like you are on 480 i or p. good luck
I have dealt with Lg in the past regarding screens and they are unable to sell them as a spare as they are so expensive, they are only used in production and a complete new HD TV is cheaper to buy than a screen.
for example LG37LP1D £900.00, a replacement screen £1500.00
I think the problem stems from the HDMI port and scart ports, i have read somewhere on a sound and vision web site that these two conflict and when HDMI is in it only sometimes blocks out the scart signal.
This could be what the problem of the freezing is, as when all said and done its just a very large pc monitor; and look at the trouble they can get in!.
