    Get a taller antenna if it's an exterior antenna.



    Otherwise stop being cheap and get cable.

Kestermai,
There are a couple of t hings to consider that will affect your picture. There is more info needed to be sure but I will point you in the right direction.

First, I suggest you go to www.antennaweb.org and click on the button labeled "Choose and Antenna." It will ask your address and about tall buildings or trees around your home. A chart will be produced to give you an idea of what stations you can receive depending on the strength of antenna you attach to the HDTV set.

Second, as Tech Jenkins pointed out without much explanation is that it is possible you may need a better and/or taller antenna to receive the stations you want to watch. Use your preferences against the chart in step one above and this should get you in the right direction.

Last, to make things easier, the industry has adopted a color codification of antennas to help compare one to another. These are the same colors that show in your chart referenced in step one. Don't worry about whether an antenna is marked as "HD" or not because it doesn't matter. An antenna simply pulls the waves out of the air within the allowed video bandwidth and sends them down a wire.

Good luck on your endeavor.

Input signal.


You should be able to connect the TV to the antenna without the tuner converter box. If you still do not get signal you may need some type of signal amplifier between the antenna and TV. Hope that helps.

I suspect you mean by disconnecting the box and running it by itself you mean you tried to run audio from your TV by itself? Somehow you need to go through the menu on your TV setup to see if the audio output isn't either turned off or muted. THere may also be a switch on the back of your TV near your output jacks which gives a option of Speaker on or off. If the speakers are on and your TV audio works I would suspect a issue with either your patchcords or the Cable Box. I am not familiar with the Comcast Digital Cable box (I have analog). But you may want to refer to the manual or to them to see if something in the menu may turn on audio for that as well.

After doing all that (whew)... and if nothing works you may have a issue with the TV amp. If nothing is hooked up to the tv (as if you were just watching "On Air" with an antenna and no stereo connected can you hear audio?

Let me know.

Kindly, DAVID

Trouble with Channel setup


It is important for the TV to know what type of
signal-Cable TV (CATV) or a normal antenna
you are using. Choose your signal (Antenna or
Cable):
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight Setup.
Press OK
to enter the Setup submenu.
TV/CATV is highlighted. Press VOL+ or
VOL-
to select TV or CATV.
Choose CATV if you have Cable TV
service. (See page 4 for connection
details.) If you do not have Cable TV
service and you connected an antenna
to the TV, choose TV. (See page 5 for
connection details.)
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.

And here is the manual if you need .

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Durabrand DU1901 digital ready?


The digital Cable conversion only effects those who still get their TV channels through an antenna or rabbit ears. If you get it through a cable provided like Comcast, you SHOULD be fine. For more information, look at the FCC website.

Happy viewing :)

Weak or no signal


you would need to know if the tuner is picking up analog signals in the air well( stick a wire a little bit in the tuner connection to see if channels pick up good or use an antenna , if so there should not be a problem with the cable being hooked up to it , if there is a problem even with an antenna then the tuner is bad and will need to be replaced , and the cable could have caused it to go out , but make sure that the tuner is working or not first.

No signal


I had a similar problem. I then noticed that my antenna has a RG6 cable. This is good. My TV requires RG6 and requires TV(RF) cable that is also RG6. Insignia comes with a TV(RF) cable that is RG59! That's a cable with a smaller diameter center connector than RG6. Consequently, when that smaller RG59 was run from the converter box to the TV's larger RG6 female connector, no signal connection was completed since the center connector made no physical contact with the TV's female connector. I found a RG6 cable to replace the RG59 cable supplied with converter box and all worked then. Also, you must force the antenna's RG6 male plug into the smaller RG59 female connector, but it'll make it.
