If you see the logo she has directv. tune her t.v. to channel 03 or 04 and she should have a picture,if she lives in a apt. her feed may be coming from her provider or her t.v. is hooked up to another t.v. that does have a directv receiver. if this doesn't solve your riddle get back with me as i work for direcv in the tech dept. hope this helps you...

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD


Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

Hi! My mother gave me an Insignia HDMI TV, and I can't figure out how to hook either my Wii console or Sony DVD player to the TV. I transfered all of the audio/visual cables from the old TV to the new TV...


Hey there!
Is there a button on the set or remote that says "input" or "source"? That will change the input settings from cable, to HDMI or RCA (aux).

I have just hooked up set top box to Sharp TV CX5182 and need to re-tune it? Can you send me instructions please as I can't find my operators manual. Many thanks.


By set top box do you mean a digital tuner box? If so and your tv is a newer flat panal than more than likely you wont need it anymore. That tuner will be built in. If this is the case than hook your anntena up to the new tv and go to the menu to do an auto channel search. That should do the trick. If it is an older tv and doesnt have the tuner then hook up the box the way you hooked it up before IE if you used cable than hook it up with cable if you used it with Composite cables(RCA) than use those the reason is some of those boxes you have to set that part up in the settings and that disabled the other output so if you had it set for cable than hooked it up with Composite(rca) nada, nothing would show. Once you hook it up and you see it on the screen then your good to go simple channel search from there. Also if you use cable then your tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 if you use Composite(rca yellow red and white) then your tv has to be on the input channel that coencides with what input is hooked to.

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?
