You should adjustb it to what sounds good to you, as industry standards with a sound pressure meter says to start out at 0 db level. You should read this link and others at this other site.

Why can't I get the same volume out of channels 5/7 & 7/8 as I do from 1,2,3,4?

Those stereo channel inputs are at line level rather than instrument level.

Often ABC channels have no signal while all the others are okay.

Guessing you are talking about free to air channels broadcast by terrestrial channels.
I have the same set up , just a normal tv receiving signal through an aerial......Bearing in mind that signals come from different sources , the aerial / antenna needs to be optimally located and positioned.
I often get signals from commercial tv but lose the signal from the BBC here in the UK. I bought and fitted a signal booster and a good aerial and no longer suffer from poor reception on any channel.

Slow changing channels

Same with our Insignia (19" LCD). Takes forever to change channels, and sluggish as heck in general. The viewing angle is poor, and the screen is not adjustable... We have a paperback book under the back part of it's flat base, so we can actually see the picture, without distortion and the shiny, aka "off the optimal viewing angle" silvery look. The picture (when watching it straight-on) and sound is fine, but the slow/sluggish performance, the tiny info and memo text, etc. makes it pain to use. Yes, It was "only" $100 + tax, but it should have a better, more acceptable performance and feature set.

  • Channels 1-7 transmit these are GMRS and transmit on a slightly higher power. On these channels, in optimal conditions about 15miles. Optimal is out in the open with no obstructions. In a suburban setting with many building you may get 2 miles out of them.
  • On channels 8-11 these are FRS and transmit with slightly less power. In optimal conditions 15 miles and in a suburban setting you may get 1 1/2 mile.

Having problem getting htr 6295 to see subwoofer---what level do i set at? + or - db and at what level?---thanks for help

It's automatic or subjective.

Page 20. If you use the optimizer automatically, it's set for you.

On page 58, you can do it 'by ear'. Then it's up to you to decide.

Use following steps to reset channel, but I lost the sound 1. Unplug TV 2. Press Channel up and Volume up at same time, while plugging TV back in (two person job - it will pull up a service screen) 3....

img{-moz-force-broken-image-icon:1;} Same no sound issue happened to me; except I stopped at adjusting vertical size (unfortunately it seems horizontal cannot be set thru service mode; which was my original intent). Complete lost of sound signal processing; oddly enough speaker volume leveling did worked. (Eg, audio-in woks; so a big WTF?!) I suspect something to do with not recovering properly the data bus from muxing the volume input keys; ie, some kind of weird service/back-to-normal switch bug. I've waited for a couple of days for the damn thing to unlock itself out it (like some stubborn transistors seem to do); but to no avail. (BTW, only dif between TVs is that mine's a slightly smaller and cheaper model, a 19U-M100S; a minor branch out of the main line.) I'm afraid something did "burned out" and that the only real fix is to actually change the "defective" part. Had I known silly sh1t like that could happen, I obv would've not messed with it to begin with. It's just ridiculous, and lame. Besides being obsolete. In any case; I also think it's nowadays better to get a (full) digital one (wisely cost effective).

My 96 year old Mother-in-law has a Sears (SR) Model 580 television. We cannot figure out how to get it to Channel 3 so as to hook up a new Federally Sponsored reception box. There is a panel for...

Those adjustments were marked with letters so you could set ant position to any channel, and the channel know was marked A-L as well. The set came with labels you could put into the knob with the numbers.

Associated with each of those adjustment screws should be a small switch, labeled (if I remember correctly...I was a Sears TV tech over 10 years ago and haven't seen one of these sets since then!) VL, VH and UHF. VL is for channels 2-6, VH 7-13 and UHF 14 up. There might also be a little indicator window showing how far up the band you've gone. There may also be a switch marked AFT on/off. If you have that, turn it off to set the tuning and turn it back on when you're done. Put the switch on VL and turn the adjustment until you're tuned to channel 3. You'll know when since you'll see the programming.

I hope I haven't been totally off base. Like I said it's been a while. If this has helped, please feel free to give this solution a good rating. (If not, please feel free to pretend this never happened!)

Unable to connect with my wrt54lgl

Try changing the channel frequency on your router. You can usually do this by going into your routers configuration page and then seeing what channel it is set on.

On my router, when I had it set on channel 4 or 5 there was too many issues where it was not connecting. Was probably wireless spectrum interfering with the connection. Then I changed the channel to 11 and it connects all the time.

Optimal connection channels will vary from location to location so play around with them and see which one works for you.

(P.S your installlation Disc included with the router will help you get into the device configuration page)

Good Luck!

Distrorted Picture on all Analog Channels, HDMI and PIP Picture is fine.

Sounds like a bad DLP chip and they will prob end up replacing the light engine in the set most people dont like replacing this part. Hopefully they get you up and running.
