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 do you connect rabbit ears to a tv


First you may need a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer if you have a flat wire with 2 leads coming out of the rabbit ears..you can get one at walmart, I attached a picture of what they look like...hook the 2 terminals from the rabbit ears to the transformer and plug it into the round terminal of the tv, set the tv to cable or antenna, what ever it has for settings, unfortunately though you may not get all that much with old rabbit ears as they are lower frequency pickup than the new HD channels run on.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels


It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

Trying to get DTV, I can't figure it out


If you are in the US you need a digital reciever, rabbit ears or otherwise and have since February. That when all US broadcasters switched to digital broadcast. If it's more than about 5 years old you will likely have to purchase a new TV.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

TV won't work with rabbit ears


You must change the input on the system to be AIR/Antenna , the way it was before was set to cable/dish/DTV.
The tv sees the input different.
