Will not find digital tv stations


Hi,

I'll be glad to assist you in locating the digital channels in the TV.
Make sure that the Cable or Antenna Input is connected to the TV. The Cable and Antenna input can be connected to the VHF/UHF Input on the TV. The TV can search for the channels only if the VHF/UHF/CABLE input is connected to the TV. If you're connecting the Cable box or the Satellite Receiver to the Video or HDMI inputs on the TV, then it is not require to auto program the TV. Here, the auto program may be required in the cable box.
To Auto Program the TV, select the Manual Channel Search option from the Menu option and then select the CABLE, AIR or Digital Add-On option depends on the connection. The Digital Add-On option adds any new digital channels that are found to the Channel Scan Database.
This should resolve the issue. Please feel free to get back to us for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I need to set digital channels on my Sony Trinitron system. It will not auto-program on digital on analog. model KD-27FS170


Hi,

You need to switch the TV to digital mode before you run the auto-program. Press the "DIGITAL/ANALOG" button on your remote before you run the scan. After switching to digital mode please complete the following steps to run the auto-program:

1. Press the "MENU" button on the remote
2. Press the right arrow ">" button on the remote once to highlight "CH" (looks like 3 boxes)
3. Press the "+" button (in the center of the arrow keys) to select.

You will now be in the "Digital Channels" menu. If you are in a menu called "Channel Setup", you are in the wrong mode. You should exit the menu, press the "DIGITAL/ANALOG" button on your remote and start again at step 1.

4. Press the down arrow on the remote to highlight "AUTO PROGRAM"
5. Press the "+" button (in the center of the arrow keys) to select.

The auto program will now run. This could take a while to complete but a progress bar is displayed so you can see how far it has gone.

If you can't get this to work or need further assistance, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a Philips TV, model HD2717 C101. All channels do not display--Why? It skips quite a few channels on scan, the only to get them is to actually select the channel individually.


Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable?
Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.

I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.

I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.

I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.

Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.

My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.

Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.

This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.

Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.

Hope this helps sorry about my rant.

Since they switched to digital TV, my VCR/DVD player will not record a TV program.


The DR-MV150B has both a digital tuner and analog tuner. Since the digital conversion you more likely have not run a channel scan for the new digital channels. Plugging in a digital tuner would work, but is unnecessary. What you probably have to do is run the 'auto scan' feature through the recorders menu. Hit "Home" button go to the "TV" icon and select "Auto Scan". It will take a few minutes, but recorder will scan for digital channels and memorize them.

Digital channel numbers are different


The channels for a digital stations are really just "names". Thy will be the number for the old analog channel followed by a "-" and a number 1 through 4. The actually frequency can vary
from the old frequency. You can see this at;
http://www.tvfool.com/

To set up your tv, you will have to connect your signal source (Antenna or Cable) to the set.
Go into the menu and select the Signal source (Channel) to match what you connected.
Go into the menu for scan or auto program and SCAN in the channels in your area.
Now you can watch the stations on your set.

If the broadcast frequency of any station change, you can re-scan it in again. The "name" will not change so the change will be invisible to you.

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)
