    Have a problem with one of these .. it's got the integrated Freeview.

    Basically when switching into Freeview mode the picture freezes (usually static) and I can't access the menu. I can switch back into AV/analogue mode, but just can't do anything with Freeview.

    Could a low signal from the antenna cause this? Seems odd that it doesn't indicate "No signal received" as the manual states ..

    Possibly, or it could be the RF cable is not adequately shielded (you need double-shielded RF cable) and is picking up noise. The noise can sometimes confuse the Freeview decoders and cause it to crash. My Philips (CRT) IDTV behaves in the same way- if I get too many glitches in the picture the Freeview part of the TV sometimes gets stuck i.e. cannot change channels, no MHEG-5, no EPG though most of the time the picture/sound still carries on as normal. I can still switch inputs, change to analogue, adjust picture settings, etc.
