The old style TV's need a converter box. You cannot just hook up an antenna directly to the TV. The TV signal in the air is now digital. Your old style TV has an analogue TV station tuner. The converter box transforms the digital signal into a usable analogue signal. Just do a online search to find out any information that you need.
Is this an analogue or digital tv tuner card.
If it is not a digital tv tuner card you wont get any channels.
UK has gone fully digital now and you need a digital receiver(freeview)
If it is a digital receiver you may just have a poor signal from your ariel
The Antenna may be in a weak signal area heres a quick cheap fix Get a Freeview Box and connect it via SCART LEAD to your tv, if the Box picks up a good signal then your tuner may be very weak.. You may want to try a BOOSTER to the TV first, and if that fails go with an external freeview. My neighbor has a 42 and the freeview box WITHOUT an antenna attached resolves all the channels..so give that a try. I have a goodmans too with a slow tuner and I have to retune it sometimes even though it gets a good signal from the antenna. I will be getting an external tuner freeveiw box.
You don't say which model or make the TV is and we are not mind readers at FixYa.
However most TV's made that are digital have on the menu somewhere digital and analogue, because they have two tunners. If you look at the set-up menu and don't see digital set-up or something like it, then chances are it's not digital. If not then the only way you can watch this TV is with the box you mention.
To hook up you need to go from the satellite box to the recorder then to the TV. If you do that then you should be able to record the show on Tv. You can get the manual on the link below. Page 7 tells you how to hook up.
The signal strength needed for digital tv is slightly great for terestrial TV I assume the HDTV you are talking about is a player. First you need to test the unit on a known good arial if this works ok then you have two options get a better internal arial or get an external arial. The other option is to get an signal amplifier for the arial you have but there is still no guarrantee. Best option is a Digital arial the are designed to give the best signal strength thus picture.
Hope this Helps.
According to the manual I looked at, this TV has only one antenna input. This means that analog is available if you let the TV do a full autoprogram of memory. It might take it several minutes to complete, but once its done you should have analog and digital if available. If you were looking for analog channel 5 then you would just enter 5-0 but digital channel 5 would be 5-1.
Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.
If this helped Vote/rate me.
Hi, Your Tv does indeed have an analog tuner for UHF and VHF reception. Remember you need to have an external antenna connected to receive anything via the analog input. On your remote in the upper right hand corner is a button labeled tv/dtv that will switch back and forth between your analog and freeview digital. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
Check the arial cable - not just the connections. Problem noted was due to an inferior cable that was not up to the job. It also ran alongside a central heating radiotor and pipes - not a good combination apparantly!
