LG Channel Menu Settings LG TV Channel Menu Settings

The Channel menu option allows the TV tuners to tune to available Over The Air or Basic Cable Stations and store the results in 4 distinct groups; DTV, TV, Cable DTV, and Cable TV.

Channels are not registered properly unless the antenna/cable is connected correctly. If you move the outdoor or indoor antenna, you will need to run the Auto Tuning facility again, as Auto Tuning only sets channels that are currently broadcasting. If Lock System is turned on, a pop-up window will appear asking for your password.
