You will need a Vhf/uhf combiner to attach to the antenna to new TV's. Check with your local TV repair shop, they should be readily available.

I have a RCA D52W20 rear projection HDTV. This TV was purchased in2005. I cancelled my cable and I just hooked up a digital antenna but the TV isn't finding any channels. What do I need to do? I was...


HDTV indicates the number of lines that are shown by the TV. (HD means that at least 720 lines can be displayed in a given picture.) To receive OTA signals, you need an ATSC tuner (digital) of sufficient power (with a clear path to the transmitter) these days. The RCA D52W20 was released in 2002 and only has an NTSC (analog tuner). You will need a digital-to-analog converter to receive OTA TV (unless any low power analog stations remain in your area).

Please note that the basic digital-to-analog converters that were available with the government coupon back in 2009 were SD (480i lines of pixels used) units. HD d-t-a converters exist but are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(the phrase "digital antenna" is meaningless; check with tvfool.com or antennaweb.org for the direction of local transmitters. TVfool.com will give more information on the type of antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplifier) that you will need to receive channels in your area. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the stations that it will indicate that you can receive. Antennas are given a color rating based on how far away the transmitter can be to get a watchable signal. Since digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or you get a "no signal" message, you often need a stronger signal than was needed to receive a watchable analog channel.)

I'm wanting to drop my satellite service. Will my projection tv pick up stations with a digital antenna?


Sorry but I've never heard of a DIGITAL ANTENNA, ALL antennas are ANALOG NOT DIGITAL, and yes you will be able to tune in some TV stations if you live close enough of TV stations that still transmit ANALOG signals, with a GOOD VHF/UHF antenna you can have good reception and viable TV time... (best of all it's FREE)

Good Luck!

I have an RCA DLP tv and it is on an antenna attached to the house the mast kind. I guess what I want to know is the picture comes in fine but then the picture breaks up or freezes. I am guessing it is...


You are correct in saying that it is a signal issue. There is not a lot you can do about it when using a outside antenna. You should be getting the best quality HD but you will always be limited by the reception. Since the HD signal is broad casted across the UHF spectrum, you may want to change the type of outside antenna you have to a UHF/HD type.
It will be a cost but the only other thing you can do is to get cable installed and that will also be a cost also.
Hope this helps,

Vhf/uhf jack broken


You can try to attempt to solder it back on, but the metal is thick and hard to get it to stick with a solder iron..

Most likely you should get a new tuner, which depending on your expertise, may require a pro.

You can take your model number to www.partstore.com and search for your tuner and order it.

Otherwise look to spend between 200 to 275 bucks for a pro to do it.

I have a Motorola Quasar TV and an outside UHF Antennae. I have coax coming from Ant. There are 3 coax connectors on the back and one pair of screw terminals for 300 ohm flat lead in cable that is...


You are losing a VERY small amount of signal using the transformer. It won't even be noticeable I'm sure if you switch to the coax in but the fewer connections you go through the less the chance of a bad connection. Use regular " Ant. In " coax connection or " RF in" whichever the wording is on the back of your set. Good Luck!

Cannot get uhf stations


I am going to assume you have a Yagi antenna since you did not specify. There is a connection at the top of the antenna that sends the UHF and VHF down the wiring. This could be damaged. You also may need to repoint the antenna. www.antennaweb.org can assist with that matter. If you have another tv connected to the same antenna and it receives UHF then you may have a defective internal component on that particular set. Depending on your location an age of the set it may be cost prohibitive compared to purchasing a new set.
Hope that helps.

RCA D56W20 picture problems


More information is required to properly troubleshoot this problem. How is your television connected when you are watching HD? Do you have HDMI for this, do you have a satellite or digital cable box? For analogue are you using regular coax antenna (cable TV), or are you going through a cable or satellite box?
This could be related to the aspect ration setting. perhaps you ahve changed your aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 or some other setting. If you are connected via HDMI, then the digital signal may be "normalizing" your picture during HD, but reverting back to the other setting.

Check you video settings very carefully. HD televisions are very difficult to tweak properly.

You will need to connect your antenna and do an auto search. When the search is over you might have to choose the broadcast option over the cable selection. That might bring in the picture.

I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!
