Open Question

Can't receive UHF using my UHF/VHF rabbit ears

I received a Sony KLV-26 in. HDTV-ready LCD TV to replace my aging analog TV. I plugged my UHF/VHF rabbit ears cable into the UHF/VHF designated port on the back of the set - but I only get VHF.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

depend on what you wants to do. if you wan to get sound from your tv on receiver connect out from tv to in on receiver if U have optical out from tv send this to optical input on your receiver and set up your receiver to impute to digital HDMI carrie sound and video...

(My Denon receiver set-up shows an HDMI cable going from the Video Out on the TV to the HDMI MONITOR OUT on the receiver)
OUT TO OUT don't make sense ...could be out to impute you may have HDMI going from receiver to TV and other HDMI imputs on receiver to use receiver as distribution unit say you have satellite HDMI, DVD HDMI, Computers HDMI IMPUTE all of this connected to your Receiver and the HDMI monitor out from your receiver connected to TV so now you may select any of this sources to wach In your TV and lessen trough receiver speakers

hi..It's probably a loose cable. The first one to check is the
green connection but make sure they're all tight. RCA cables
tend to pop out part way which is enough to stop the signal.
If the green signal is lost, you get no picture. If the red or blue
are lost, you get a picture with bad coloring.

If you still have the problem check this
LOOK in the back of the TV when you have it turned on. Look in the slots near the top for a white glow coming out of it.

IF you see it, you need your signal board replaced...

IF NOT, then you need your power supply board replaced...

Look in your manual for a channel scan entry. It should be an item in your setup menu. What this does is re-scan for all the signals it can receive.
Once the scan is done, it should display all the channels that are viewable in your area

SOURCE: Indoor antenna problem with Magnavox LCD TV Model 15MF605T/17

I have found most of these indoor antennae to be ineffective and a waste of money, however, I do not know anything about this particular antennae. I to have a Dish DTVpal, which I love! It's ugly and probably won't fit in your kitchen, but the best solution is to make your own "bow-tie" antennae, mount it indoors or on the roof and run a cable to the kitchen. Directions can be found on You-Tube. I live in SE Idaho (Pocatello) and can get 13 channels, most without having to adjust the antennae.

When I hook up my sanyo model#clt1554 to my hdtv rabbit ears it does't work why?


Rabbit ears are a poor man's antenna. Maybe you have no analog stations in your area. If you do, then the signal is likely very poor.

Sanyo hdtv model do 42647. 1080P tv


TV rabbit ears are for analog TV settings. You need an analog TV transmitter very close to the TV to get any good reception. Otherwise you need an antenna with more gain and more height to receive any analog TV transmitters in your area.

I bought HDTV/UHF/VHF/FM INDOOR PASSIVE ANTENNA please help me to install it it is not working


Is the antenna the correct one for your environment? Do you have the antenna pointed at the stations you want to receive? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get an idea of the location and likely channels you can receive at your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the list of channels you can receive. (These may match the limits of the indoor antenna.) TVfool lists the stations and the appropriate antenna that will likely receive each station.

Tall trees and buildings will block the signal. Get the antenna as high as possible. Move the rabbit ears and UHF loop to maximize your signal strength. Then make sure the TV is set to use the OTA tuner (ATSC for digtal stations). (That may mean changing the source in the setup menu.)

Then scan for channels. Move your antenna or parts of it and rescan or edit the channel list. (For some TVs there is a weak signal setup option that will let you manually enter the station number (including sub-channel). Then it will provide the signal strength information as you move your antenna.)

I hope this helps. An amplifier may help you bring in weak stations with enough signal strength for the tv to see them.

Since the digital switchover, I have lost channels, despite re running the setup and tuning. Any suggestions as to why this is happening?


I have a similar issue. When the digital switch happened here some of the local TV stations changed frequencies from UHF to VHF. I do not have a VHF antenna so I am unable to receive these channels. I do have a great UHF antenna, but it will not receive VHF. The fix is of course is a new UHF/VHF antenna. I am 50 miles away from the TV transmitters.

This may or may not be your problem. I hope this is helpful to you.
