I have an LG Flatron TV about 15 years old. I have moved it within my house and attached an indoor antenna. I want to automatically retune to Freeview but the advice is to select menu on the remote and then elect setup and go from there. But my remote does not show me setup
JA: What is the model of your TV?
Customer: LG Flatron
JA: What menu options can you access, if any?
Customer: I just get Auto programme, Manual programme, Programme edit and Favourite programme
JA: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that's it

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today. The auto program option should scan for available channels. Have you tried that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The auto programme option gives me System, Storage from, and Start

Select Start and see if it will scan for channels.

If you have a Freeview box connected, that is what you will need to use to scan for channels.

It scans for BBC1 but after 100 % gives me just gives me very loud static and no picture

That may very well be due to the quality of your antenna?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have a freeview box connected

Were you able to receive your channels before you moved the TV?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
bu the TV was then connected to a main aerial in the roof

I have bought a new Digital HDTV Antenna and that is the one connected at the moment

Okay. That is your problem then. You need a better antenna or try to connect the TV back to the roof antenna.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could it be the positioning of the new antenna?

Possibly, but indoor antennas, in most cases, work poorly for digital broadcast stations.

Each time you re-position the antenna, you will need to re-scan for your stations.

Okay thanks

My pleasure. Good luck!
