Trying to get Giga Pocket to work

First time trying Giga Pocket 5.5.

Tuner works in that it properly scans and adds channels. 
But when attempting to use... clicking on TV icon - just briefly displays channel 2.. then reinitializes

    Did that... and it got the tv picture where it's supposed to be. Now the issue is no sound when in "tv" mode. 


    I tried a recording last night and it plays back with sound that is fine. 


    Any ideas?

    Did some more searching and got the sound working, thanks to info on this link:

Digital tv tuner not displaying picture


. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

DOES THE SHARP T V MODEL lc46sb54u HAVE ADIGTAL TURNER, IF SO HOW DO YOU ACTIVATE THE TURNER


it has a digital tuner that also does analog channels. You dont need to active it. I fyou are trying to get the channels over an antena, go into the menu and do a auto scan for channels. Set the auto scan as "cable". If you are trying to get cable channels over 19 it wont work without a box. The digital channels are scrambled for cable.

Hi,

Your TV has a dual tuner - one for analogue and one for digital although they are contained on the same tuner board. It's possible that the digital tuner has failed, in which case the tuner board will most likely need to be replaced, but often this problem can be resolved with a "hard" reset. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Remove all the cables from the back, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then re-connect only the cable from the tuner source. i.e aerial/antenna. Make sure you are in Digital TV mode (DTV), then run the channel scan again.

If it works turn the TV off, re-connect all of your other devices and you should be able to resume using the TV as normal.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have the digital tuner replaced. The analogue and digital channel feeds are from the same source. As the analogue channels are working there is no obvious fault with the feed or cables.

Please try this first and then post back for further assistance if needed.

Regards,
BElectric

Hi Ryan,

Sorry to hear about your troubles, but I think I have something that can help you:

1. Don't shoot me, but if you haven't already, go to this link and download the package. You don't need the Giga Pocket update (is useless so I assume that is where you are having problems) BUT the MPEG encoder drivers are necessary.

2. Get the Giga Pocket app and all the frills for XP from here

3. Although I could leave it here, I know that a lot of problems arise when people install both the drivers and Giga Pocket app such as getting a grey screen for all your channels despite this whole process being such a pain. All you need to do to make it work is a little bit more work from a command prompt by registering the *ax files. Since you installed the HD, RAM and a new OS, I think you can handle it.

To register the Sony *.ax files (after installing the initial drivers and Giga Pocket):

Note: There seem to be a lot of *.ax files, so I am giving you the automated option. If you have issues and want to do each manually, let me know and I'll guide you.

1.) From the command window, type as follows:
cd "c:\Program Files\Sony"
dir /S /B *.ax

This will give you a list of all of the .ax files in all of the subdirectories.

2.) You need to copy this list into a text file. First, click the window icon at the top left-hand side of the command window. When the menu drops down choose edit-> Mark. Now you can drag the mouse to select the entire list of files. Don't forget to scroll up and start with the first file in the list. When you have selected the entire list, press enter to copy the text.

3.) Next, open Notepad and paste the text into a new document. Now use the search and replace feature as follows. First, replace all instances of c:\
with the following
regsvr32 "c:\

Then, replace all instances of
.ax
with the following
.ax"

4.) Finally, save the file somewhere easy to remember would the file extension .bat. For example, you could save it as c:\giga.bat

Now all you have to do is run the batch file that you just created. You can either double-click it or run it from the command window. To run it from the command window simply enter the filename by itself on the command line. When you run it, it will display a dialog box for each file that was successfully registered.

Locked out of digital antenna in setup. I had it


1. ensure that you are on the TV tuner when you are trying to scan channels
2. if analog tuner works, but you cannot access digital tuner....the digital tuner is broken

When you turned channels before, did it switch between analog and digital channels seamlessly or did you need to press a button to acces digital channels seperately?

If you accesed digital channels seamlessly, #2 is not likely
If seperately, #2 is very likely.

Re-Loading Software


Since they installed a generic copy of xp, there are none of the sony installed add-ons present on the computer. go here to view the available downloads for your system provided by sony, you will have to select the "EVERYTHING" tab to see the giga downloads if it does not load there.
Otherwise you will have to contact sony for a recovery disk specific to your system.

This one took me a while to figure out as I had the same problem.

The answer is rename/delete the D:\GigaPocket directory and restart GigaPocket. It will regenerate the directory and will work fine....or at least mine did.
