I bought the same TV wich is in fact a Seiki TV, see the warranty paper. The television has digital and analog tuners so is able to receive digital channels.Our television receive signal thru a rabbit ear antenna and we had some trouble to scan all the digital channels. We had to change the orientation of the antenna to receive correctly the signals and we had to scan many times. We finally conected the TV to a roof antenna so we where able to scan all the channels of Montreal, north Vermont and north New York areas since we are living in the south shore in front of Montreal. After the scan was completed we conected back the TV to the rabbit ear antenna and the television is working correctly receiving all the stations of Montreal area with a very good picture quality.
The channels are going off because the signal is not stavying strong enough to keep a regular picture. If you are having this with several channels, there are several things you can check. First, make sure all the antenna wires are not loose. Then find the signal strength option in your converter box (each is different thus you need to check the manual on how to use) to see how strong your signal is. If all channels are low, you most likely need a outdoor antenna. These can be bought at any home improvement store. There is no such thing as a digital antenna. The signal for the channels are still being sent over the same tv spectrum (most will be over UHF) thus walk away from any electronic store that is selling a special digital antenna, there is no such thing. I am using a outdoor antenna, and the picture I receive is just as good as cable. It is some effort to hook it up correctly but the improved picture is well worth the effort. Very heavy rain, wind and clouds at your home and near were the tv broadcast antenna is will also effect your picture. These problems go away as the weather gets better. Directv also has the same problems with weather.
It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.
why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.
You have diagnossed the problem by moving the antenna imput,the problem might be a loose conection in the tuner itself,the grounds ussually get loose and need to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service you can resolder all the pins and grounds,there is another possibilty and that is the conector itself where the antenna screws is loose and it has broken the solder conection inside the tuner and the will have to be taken apart and resolder,the conector has to be solid .You have an option and is using the aux,1 or 2 and coneting you vcr to either one those imputs then you will need to change the channels thru the vcr,this way you will not have to worry about the tuner.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
The set has loose power conections to the tuner and judging by the model it might have other loose conections in the chassis,the loose conections need to be resoldered and might not be easy to find,try taping the side of the set to see if it reacts while is doing the problem.Be safe and call a technician unless you are familiar with tv service.
