HD tuner will not remember memorized channels

Whenever the set is turned on, the set will remember only one, possibly two at best, channels. We have to re-search channels every time we turn it on, sometimes several times before it will tune more than one channel. Usually after searching channels it will display the same numbers in the upper left corner but will actually be changing channels. We do live in an area with a lot of digital stations that broadcast in HD.
Also, how do you manually tune this set?

SOURCE: Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.

I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:

Channel 10 analog

Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.

hope this helps u out.

SOURCE: Do these TVs have tuners that allow then to pick

The Emerson LD195EM8 has both an NTSC (analog) and an ATSC (digital) tuner with an RF (coax) connector. So you will be able to watch current OTA TV without a set top box (cable/satellite/converter).

I hope this helps.

How to switch from analog to digital


The LED LCD TV's came out in 2009. It already has a built in digital HD tuner.

Allen wants to know how to switch the TV between the built in analog tuner and built in digital tuner.

Switching between the two tuners is done by means of the "TV mode" switch on the remote control.

You will NOT be able to select analog channels if have NOT done analog tunning.

If you need to do a retuning then hit the "menu" button select "setup" then "plug and play" enter the default pin number 0000. When you are selecting the channel source to memorize make sure you select "digital and analog". This will then cause the TV to tune and memorize both the analog and digital channels.

For details refer to page 8 of the user manual.

Sony st-jx301 tuner have to keep memorizing favorite channels when turning it on


I guess you mean that it looses the memorized channels when you turn it off? It probably has a backup capacitor that's gone bad.

My problem is I have a dvd player DMR-ES 15 I live in australia is it possible to tune in the new tv stations example seven 2


It is not possible to tune in 7two, channel 11, GO! or similar digital channels with this model DVD recorder, as its tuner would most likely be analogue only. You would either need to upgrade to a model with a digital tuner built in, or purchase an external set top box, capable of SD and HD digital reception, and connect its AV outputs to the respective inputs of the recorder, in order to record the channels you want.

However, being in OZ, those digital channels are available as free to air - all you would need is the appropriate receiver to enjoy them. I recommend a set top box which offers HD as well as SD.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Element Electronics FLX2211B 22 in. LCD TV will reset every time


I have run into the same problem with a different model (32 inch from Circuit City). You may have found that there is almost no support from the co or web. I do not have an official solution but have some work arounds that have done the job for me.
WA#1 = after a channel scan tune to a HD/digital channel before you turn the set off. You need to do this each time for several times, because the set when turned on to a regular cable or analog station will default to skip all channels. After several times the set should remember your channels.
WA#2 = after a channel scan, go to the skip channel section of the menu, and if your remote has the colored buttons on the bottom scroll through the channels using the red and green (up and down on this menu) buttons. This apparently helps the set remember not to skip your scanned channels.
These are not glamorous solutions but appear to trick the TV into not re-setting the skip function for the channels.
Best of luck.

No transmitting with Raymarine Ray45VHF


Hi,

Re your queries:
1. how to memorize channels?
The channels are pre-programmed that a channel number corresponds to a frequency setting. Ex. Ch16 is 156.800 . If for some reasons some channels are missing, perhaps your best course of action is to reset the unit to factory default, that way everything would be back to  normal. Master reset is performed by pressing the 16PLUS button while powering the radio. The LCD will display "CL" indicating that the memory has been cleared.
If you  want to memorize a certain channel/frequency, you can only store it as a replacement for 16PLUS assignment. Ex. Instead of Ch16 as your priority/emergency channel you want say Ch14 (156.700), you can do this by pressing the up/down key till your desired channel; press & hold the 16PLUS key for 3 seconds or until you hear the confirmation beep that your desired channel has been memorized in the memory as the new 16PLUS.

2. Why I cannot transmit?
There could be 2 possible reasons:
2.1 You are transmitting on a channel that has been assigned as receive only. Examples are the weather channels, Channels 1,2,3,  also 70,75,76, and possibly others.
2.2 Your TX module/circuitry has a problem. More often it is the finals that gets burned.

3. When i use the PTT Channel 16 is automatically set ?
The mic has an identical 16PLUS button (similar to the radio's front panel). If you pressed the PTT switch on the side and the radio switches to Ch16 (as if you pressed the 16PLUS button on the front) then you have a wiring problem from the mic to the radio. Possibly a shorted or open connection.  It is also possible that you have a break in the small PCB (in some versions) inside the microphone.

The user's manual can provide a more detailed instruction.  It is available at the RayMarine website and the link is >
http://www.raymarine.com/SubmittedFiles/Handbooks/Legacy_Handbooks/communications/RAY45MANUAL.pdf

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
