Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture

I appreciated the answer, but I guess I didn't make myself clear. I have the new tv tuner and just don't understand how to hook it up. The s-cable, the coaxial cable, the y cable.....I guess I am saying that I know how to make the DVD's, I just can't figure out how to hook this up. I had a really old TV tuner attached to my laptop and had no trouble hooking it up, but it was fuzzy and thought I would just get a new one....but this one had too many cables or else I just don't understand the directions. Thanks, Betty

Hi Betty, First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver

Tv is hooked to cable but still gets no picture or sound...only a blank blue screen


Verify that the source is set to "Tuner", "Cable", "Antenna" or "TV". (I don't know which of these names Maxent uses, and the site formerly used for their downloads is now a generic search page.) Make sure the TV format is correct for your region (in the US it should be ATSC, sometimes called HDTV).
If you have a portable TV, bring it over and connect the cable to it to verify that the cable connection is good.
Check the other inputs to verify that the internal video switch is functioning properly. If you don't find a problem with any of these tests, you likely have a tuner problem. Note: do not use a tool to tighten the cable on the tuner connection. I've seen a lot of tuners broken that way, including some with the circuit board ripped apart inside. Use your fingers, and just make the nut snug enough to hold the cable in place and secure the ground connection made through the nut.

Is there a direct cable tv connection on a mx-50x5 i want to just connect my cable from the wall right to the tv?


I don't believe this tv has a tuner, so no I don't think you will be able to hook up directly to your cable from the wall. Most newer units do have a built-in tuner, tho some do not. Make sure to check the specs first.

No picture on TV and can't get autotune table up


The TV is obsolete now.

You could go to Best buy and get a digital tuner.

I got one. Actually worth it. Perfect picture, but its like letterboxed.

You could subscribe to Basic cable.

I'm finding it strange that this far into the situation, that people don't understand
that their tuners are useless now.

Get a digital tuner.

Or a Brand NEW High Definition TV!!!!!

I am unable to record digital tv channels on my LG RC389H dvd recorder. I have a new tv with a digital tuner and have hooked them up but unable to view any digital tv on my LG player only the old analogue...


The RC389H is only deigned to receive standard TV signals, not digital. If you are routing through a straight cable line you usually can't access anything above 100 if you don't have a digital tuner. Try using a cable/satellite box if you haven't already, this bypasses the requirement for a digital tuner because the cable/satellite box has one of it's own.

My Brand New 40" westing


To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.
Learn more about Clear QAM cable signals:

Did you use the correct setup during the tuner setup to scan the availabel cable channel per user manual?

I have a Sylvanis VCR/DVDcombo and a Standard TV.


The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).

Hope this helps,
Dan

Hitachi 57G500A DTV & upcoming analog to digital changeover


To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.

To simplify:

Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter
