    Slow switching channels

    Hello, A few days ago I bought the TV 39PFL3508G (in Argentina). I noticed that it is very slow in switching channels when pressing channel "+" and "-" buttons. When I press it once, it changes to the next channel fine, but sometimes I have to press the channel "+" button twice so that it changes to the next channel, because the first time it shows the image of the current channel, and I have to wait various seconds until then change takes place. Is there a way to configure the speed when changing channels? Thank you in advance.

    Hi MjoseFV,

    Changing channels can take up to several seconds when using HDTV. On top of this signal strength and quality also affect how fast the TV is able to tune into the next signal and therefore change channel.

    This is the nature of digital broadcast and normal behaviour. If your TV takes longer than 7-8 seconds to change, please have a look at the incoming signal information.

    Best regards,
