You can now change the value so that it does not clash with an analogue TV channel or a Freeview multiplex.

mazbar:
Maybe the software differs as mine does not even try to tune any analogue signals in Bands 4 and 5! Even if I have none of the options (Digital, Cable, Satellite) selected! It doesn't even try to tune then. Plus LG make no mention of any of these models having an analogue capability. If I select just one of the mentioned options, that is all it tries to tune, so by selecting all of them it tries to tune all connections but still does not show any scan for analogue signals on channels between 21 and 68 that were used for the analogue transmissions. It finds all the digital signals available locally, all the satellite signals being received by the 60 cm dish and looks at the 'cable' option but as we do not have a cable connection it finds nothing.
This response based on a recheck this morning having read your comment.

I am a retired 'professional'! I don't follow why you mention Sky as that is a digital satellite service, unless you are using a Sky box with an RF output and you are refering to that 'local' source being seen on your TV?

MikeP: I'm using rf2 to feed the whole house I have 2 lg TVs each picks them up on the analogue channel 35, picture is perfect and magic eyes work just fine. I mention sky as that is now the only thing that outputs an analogue signal. That is what the other person wanted to know.

Other equipment outputs RF signals and some later Sky 'boxes' do not unless an 'add on' modulator is fitted.

MikeP / (Mazbar) : I feel that the confusion surrounding the issue of analogue reception on these LB580V models is basically down to the fact of this mode not being specifically mentioned in either the set menu, or indeed the manual, even although the model "is" capable of analogue reception, as verified today by LG's technical department.

I think that the secret of successfully storing an analogue channel is for the analogue source to be there in the first place, as mentioned by Mazbar, i.e: coupled into the Sky boxes RF1/2 output socket (or I.O. port modulator) and with said Sky box (or modulator) switched on and outputting a signal.

The second stage being "not" to select any particular mode to scan, as doing so would then restrict the box from going through the "full" scanning mode which includes analogue tuning, albeit that this mode, or anything received in same, is only revealed (TV/ Radio button) once something has been captured.
