So I got the LG mentioned above as a replacement for my Philips 50PUS7505 on which the Freeview apps stopped working. I received 171 Freeview channels plus over well over 500 Freesat channels on the Philips. On the LG I'm getting approx 130 channels for both Freeview and Freesat (130 for Freeview and 230 for Freesat). A big reducton. That disappointing figure was through the satellite connector and aerial. The aerial hadn't been moved at all. As for picture quality, I'm m loving the blacks and contrast levels, but sharpness and brightness has been a serious issue. Soft pictures, very dark picture in all picture modes except Vivid annoy me. I'm sure the brightness in vivid creates the soft images. And lastly, many of the advanced user features in the on screen user manual seem unavailable. Am l doing things wrong? Any help is appreciated.
