The problem of convective magnetohydrodynamic channel flow in a vertical channel subjected simultaneously to an axial temperature gradient and a pressure gradient is examined when the thermal and the electrical conductance of the channel walls are arbitrary. The effects of wall conductances on the flow rate and heat transfer are found and discussed. When the vertical temperature gradient is negative, which is the case of heating from below, there exists a critical Rayleigh number at which the fluid becomes unstable. The critical Rayleigh number is also found as a function of the wall conductances.
