If you are only using a TV antenna, then the air signal that you are receiving is not sufficiently strong enough to present a full data frame to your receiver. If you are on cable, then your cable company is not sending a strong enough signal. This could be the Cable company's fault, or your cable connection could be at fault. In that case call your cable company and complain.

If it is over the air, then you will have to put up a better antenna, and perhaps an enhanced antenna with a db gain that will give the signal a boost such as http://www.target.com/GE-Indoor-Outdoor-TV-Antenna/dp/B0026SSAOM

When the FCC mandated that the US TV signals switch to digital, then the frequency was upped to a higher level. Those higher level frequencies have a disadvantage in that they are affected by line of sight interference from trees, houses, other structures, in that they bounce off. Also weather interferes with the signal. There is a move afoot to increase the strength of the signal, but that is years away.

Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels


It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Color went in and out, no i only get fair black and white picture often grainy


I'm assuming here that this tv is being used for analogue reception because on digital you either get a perfect picture or when the signal is weak enough, nothing at all (common when trying to use rabbits ears or in poor reception areas). Assuming analogue then, when the signal is weak (grainy or snowy picture) the colour (called chroma) is automatically turned off because grainy colour is unwatchable. This is normal. Solution, a better aerial to provide a stronger signal.

Dish VIP 612 breaks up when playing back recorded shows.


Edy, I am not going to say that this is the definite issue but Dish only has receivers that are 1080i compatible at the time which will give you some blurring and possible pixellating. 1080p will resolve these issues in the future. Therefore if you still need help let me know.

Wish to record on analog VCR and not affect digital TV reception


I don't think it will affect the digital TV reception, but if you try to use the VCR built-in tuner it is still analog and you won't be able to record digital channels that way. If your digital TV converter has video-out and audio-out connectors, then you can connect those to the corresponding connectors on your VCR to record.

Poor FM reception


The Phone must be on.
The SIM card must be a valid one.
The station you listen to and the network operator you use, must support the service.
The headset or enhancement needs to be attached to your phone. for the FM radio to function properly, it's an aerial as well as a headset.
Therefor if you are in a poor reception area for making/receiving calls it will also affect the radio signal.
