Hi guys I previously posted a thread about this tv & dvd setup but don't know how to find it.
I have an lg dvd/vcr combo plugged into an old tv with a coaxial cable as it has no av outputs.
When I first connected it I had pretty good reception but have since moved the tv and now when I play a dvd or a video the reception is so bad that I can't see the picture at all but the sound is fine. No amount of moving the tv or cables etc seems to make a difference. Can someone please help me with how to get a semi decent picture back?
Thanks very much,

I'm assuming that you have a channel on your TV that is tuned to the DVD player. In this case there is a chance you TV has slightly de-tuned the channel.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Hi and thanks for your reply
Yes I have a channel for the dvd player, so I need to tune it again to fix the problem?

Yes, if you are outputting through the coaxial, make sure that the channel number is nowhere near those transmitted, they would cause interference.
