Question about Panasonic PV-M1349 Combo

1 Answer

Can receive only channels 1 thru 27 although connected to cable with 70 channels.

We have 4 TVs in our home. Three work perfectly with our cable system and are much older than the one we cannot seem to set up to receive all available cable channels. It is a Quasar TV/VCR combo model VV-2009. Only 7 years old, and unfortunately, we lack the original owner's manual. The cable service rep did not set up this TV at the time since we did not have a remote. Recently, I purchased a remote and thought I could work my way thru the set up using the action key (gets me to menu), but nothing seems to be working and all we can auto set is 27 channels. It is an original Quasar Tower remote. We checked the back of the TV, and there is only one connection opening and it is labeled UHF/VHF. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Re: Can receive only channels 1 thru 27 although...

First you need to check if your set is in the cable mode and not antena mode,if the set is in cable make sure is in the standard cable mode and not another type of cable like HRC,if it is change it and try the autoprogram to set the available channels.I hope it helps.

I have a toshiba mw27f51 27 in tv and want to hook up to dish network. There is a cable from the dish network box but the tv does not get reception

I am hoping that you have gotten this resolved. But if not, or if you have trouble in the future, here are some simple steps to run through. If you are at TV1, the location where the receiver box is, then you want to make sure that your tv is on channel 3 or 4. Depending on what cables you have, the tv may also need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2. In this case, it sounds like 3 or 4 would be sufficient. If you are in TV2, where there is no receiver box, you want to make sure that your tv on channel 60 or 73. Hope this helps!!

There are three ways you can connect a DVD player to a TV. Component video gives the best picture quality, but requires 3 cables for the video signal alone. S-video needs only 1 cable but it isn’t as good as component video. Composite video is the easiest connection to make, but gives the lowest picture quality.

Connecting a DVD player to your stereo receiver (or television, if you don't have a receiver) involves making two basic connections: audio and video.
The first connection to make is for the audio portion of the signal. There will be several options depending on the receiver you have.
  • The best choice (if available) is either to use an optical (also called Tos-link) or coaxial (RCA) digital connection. These two choices are equal in quality. In order to use either of these, you will need to have both an output on the DVD player, and an input on the receiver. Only receivers with built-in Dolby Digital decoders will have this type of input.
    The audio outputs on a DVD player

  • If your receiver does not have a built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, but is "Dolby Digital ready," look for the 5.1-channel Dolby or 5.1-channel DTS. This connection involves six cables, corresponding to different speaker channels: left front, center front, right front, left rear, right rear and subwoofer.

  • The last option to connect the two components is with analog RCA outputs. This is a two-cable connection, with one cable delivering the left speaker sound, and the other cable delivering the right. This connection will deliver only stereo sound, but it may be your only option if you are hooking up directly to a television, or if you have an old receiver with only two channels.
Now let's take a look at the video connection.
  • The best quality choice is to use component connection. This connection consists of three cables: color-labeled red, blue and green. The quality is superb. However, these connections only exist on extremely high-end receivers and television sets.
    The video outputs on a DVD player

  • The next option is s-video. One cable connects the DVD player to the receiver in this setup.

  • The last option, similar to the audio setup, is to use the analog RCA video output, usually color-labeled yellow on both ends. This will deliver the lowest quality, but will suffice for most older, analog televisions.

How can an old vcr analog connect to a new digital tv

Although the TV is digital, the market has not dumped the analog compatibility (yet). You can connect your VCR through the RF input, using channel 2, 3 or 4 (depending on your VCR) to view your video collection. Or, you can connect your VCR by RCA cables to the composite video input. Most TVs now have only 1 or 2 composite inputs (Yellow, White, Red). They are sometimes shared, serving as a component input as well (Green, Blue, Red, White, Red). For these TVs, you will notice a yellow circle or some other marking around the Green connection indicating that it is also a composite input. When connecting to such an input, remember to connect the white (and red if your VCR has one) to the white (again, red applies) to the audio input jacks of this video input. I hope this was of some assistance and not too confusing.

Won't show cable channels

First thing I would try is taking the set to a different location where you have cable and see if it works,if it does not make sure the conector in the back is not loose,make sure the cable you have selected is the standar cable and not another kind like HRC or other and last the set might have a tuner problem and for that you will need assistance from a servicer.
