We have a motor home with a tv in the living room and one under the coach in the bay (factory installed). We have Direct TV and both are connected to one satellite receiver. The TV in the bay has a blue screen so that it is not getting a signal. It did this last year and we forgot what we did (by accident) to make it work. It seems that the insde TV remote was used but we can con remember what we did to make it work. When working they both receive the same channel and turn off the power to the inside tv and watch the outside tv. Any ideas????

This is a problem with the shielding on the television the other signals are interfering with the reception. Call the television maker and ask the for advise on how best to shield the television from the other signals. You could also try shielding the television with tin foil wrapped around the critical area of the television. This might work, but it better to talk to the television customer service they may have some filters that can block the noise causing your interference problems or go online and check their website for the frequently ask questions and see if a problem like yours has been answered. Hope this helps you with your problem.

      Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5," "Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing when you turn on the TV.

    • 2
      Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable (though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables or S-video cables).

      Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).

      Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.

      Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select "Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter" again.

      Exit the menu and watch TV as normal.

Sharp Aquos 46" HDMI problem


I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

Changing TV set up to cable from "air"


Try setting tv to channel 3 or channel 4, this should coincide with the back of satellite box (a little black switch with a 3 or 4). then switch channels with your satellite box. I would recommend using another output off the satellite box to feed the other tv, a splitter loses some signal quality an can go bad as well. get a long rca cable to feed tv!

Flashing boxes on screen


Regardless of what the satellite company says, I would find a way to try another satellite reciever to start with. I have seen this from cable boxes and satellite recievers many times. I have also seen this with a bad LNB, distribution amplifier, or a bad active splitter, or a bad cable, or a bad connector.

There is a data loss somewhere, and the set is seeing what we call aliasing. This is a loss of data, and it shows as blocks.

It is possible for your set have internal aliasing if there is a fault on one of the processor boards. The only way you will easily know if the problem is external or internal to the set is to try another source.

From your description, if other sources work with the set, then this strongly rules out the set. To easily know if the fault is on the input that the sat reciever uses, if possible swap the position with the DVD player.

On the sat system, a defect in the reciever, the LNB, or any LNB splitters or a relay, or a bad connector, can also cause aliasing because of a signal loss.

Recording instructions


First, whether or not you can do this will depend on cable box useage, and how the VCR is hooked up. In the earlier days of cable TV, & off-air reception, this was a simple task. If you have a satellite receiver box or cable box which is used to tune the channel, rather than using the TV itself or the VCR tuner, then recording one channel while watching another may not be possible. While I don't know the capabilities of newer sat/cable boxes, older ones sent just one signal out to the external equipment (TV etc.) That one signal (channel) is all that is available. If you received a manual with the sat/cable box, see if it says anything about this issue. That being said- if you don't use a sat/cable box, but instead use your TV or VCR to select the channel you are watching, then assuming the VCR is hooked up inline with the TV, just setting the VCR/TV option to TV will pass all channels through to the TV, and you can then use the TV to select whatever channel wished, while the VCR is recording something else. Hopefully I haven't confused you. If another contributor has some additional info on the capabilities of sat/cable boxes of today, please read their contribution.
