Before I install a converter, I want to clear up the picture on my TV. When I first turn on the TV, the picture is good, but after a few seconds it gets a lot of horizontal interference on the screen. This occurs on all channels. I have standard rabbit ears antenna. Please let me know if there is a service charge and if so, how much.

Re: Do not get a clear picture on my Memorex Tv
If you have Bright House networks as your cable provider, im pretty sure there is no charge for them to install any of the equipment. With other companies, im not sure so I would call to find out. But, yes, if you convert to cable with the converter as you mentioned, the picture will clear right up to your liking.
Thanks and Happy new Year!

Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerful the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.
4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good idea to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.
your RCA jacks from the DVD player....should be connected to the Vizio a/v 1 in the back of TV (yellow to yellow, red & white to red & white)... now to view using the remote to TV switch to a/v (play a DVD, you should now have a picture and sound)
I am going to assume that you have not already found the answer to this problem. It is actually pretty common for flat panel televisions in the winter to be too cold to turn on. What I did when faced with this problem on my 32 inch memorex was turn it on for 30 minutes while covered with a fleece blanket, than turn it off. When you turn it back on it should work...did for me!
Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?
