Want six receivers at home

I want six seperate tvs to be able to view different channels at the same time. what is the cheapest way for me to get hd on at least 3 of these tv's? wireless through the wall does not work well here since my home has metal lath in all rooms, also i don't have but two phone outlets and dont't care to have anymore cords stapeled to my baseboards. i have no need for a dvr or pay for view. I currently have 4 301 receivers, none of which are connected to a phone line. long question, hope someone can wade through it and provide me with help.
(i am willing to purchase the extra receivers if needed) emma

The 301 is a standard receiver, so it wont give you HD programs. You will have to buy at least 3 HD receivers. (they're about $300 a piece:(). The vip222 HD reciever has 2 tuners so it will allow you to have seperate programs on 2 television.

How do i get hd channels with no cable ? just antenna


If your TV has a digital tuner, you can get any HD channels if you use the correct antenna pointed at the transmitter and are close enough to the transmitters. (Antennas labeled as HD are not always appropriate for your location.) Your TV will downgrade the signal to 480i if the TV can't support a 720p or 1080i resolution.

First where do you live? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to determine the correct placement of your antenna for your area/stations. AntennaWeb uses a very conservative signal strength calculation despite assuming an external antenna. Tvfool will give the antenna color rating which is also provided on the antenna package. When properly installed (with no trees or hills blocking the signal), the matching antenna should receive the listed channel.

If you use a splitter to share the signal with several TVs, you may need an amplifier to bring the signal strength to that needed for the tuner to interpret the digital signal. (Note: amplifiers and splitters can fail and the amplifier may become a signal filter blocking the signal; test the antenna strength on a direct connection if there is a problem.)

If you do not have a digital tuner in the TV, you may have gotten an SD digital to analog converter. These are the more common (and available with the government coupon) converters. You will need to get an HD capable tuner to see the full HD signal.

Please add a comment with your TV model and antenna choice for additional support.

(antennaweb indicates that my external antenna should only get the stations 10 miles away. We actually receive the channels from 30 miles away. We use an amplifier splitter to feed the signal to several TVs. I set up two indoor antennas for a neighbor's TVs. One gets the signals from the transmitters 30 miles away and the other from the transmitter 10 miles away. Both get HD from the stations with HD broadcast (not all channels are in HD here). The difference is totally due to antenna placement.)

The aspect ratio on the HD channels are full screen - which is correct. However all other channels have the incorrect aspect ratio. (reduced size) A solution please???


Many times HD channels will come in more clear, but with a smaller picture or widescreen view. There should be a button on your remote called 'wide' or 'zoom' and it will let you adjust the size on the fly. If you adjust the view while watching an HD channel, and you switch to a standard channel, you will have to change the ratio back.

How do i get local chanles on direct tv anywhere i go?


You will ONLY receive the same channels you receive at home with the poretable receiver. This assumes you are in a market where DirrecTV and Dish are required to provide the local channels. Not all TV markets require this.
If you want "local" channels in a different market, buy a seperate RF antenna. Suggest one with a built in amp that clamps on some sort of pole. This all presumes you have a TV that has a digital tuner or a converter.

With converter box only receive 2-3 channel


They have powered antennas that give you more stations. I added a HD antenna I bought off ebay for 19 dollars and I get 10 stations. Please give me good rating It means a lot to me.

Am i getting hdtv with just cable feed?


Depending on your cable provider, some of the HD channels may be present. If so, these are ususally located in the upper channel numbers. It sounds like you are receiving some of the HD lineup. A cable box will probably allow you to view more HD channels including the premium HD channels if you subscribe to them. You should not be noticing a delay with the HD channels only. If this is what you are experiencing without a cable box, then it would be an issue with the HD tuner built into your TV set. LG customer service can let you know if there are any software updates available for yourmodel that can resolve this. Additionally, if you are getting your sound from an Home Theater system then you will notice an echo if using the TV's built in speakers at the same time. This is sometimes mistaken as an audio delay. If you are using a home theater system, be sure to disable the speakers that are built into your system.

I have two Sharp Flat Screen TV model # LC-26SB14U. One is hooked up to a regular Dish Network HD receiver. The other is hooked up to a HD DVR receiver. Both are hooked up to the same Phillips DVD player....


if you using the component input on both tvs I will check the settings on the receivers, "HD setup", the difference is because the settings are set one on 480i and the other on 1080i

NO HDTV


There are many variables here that could cause the problem. I can receive a few local HD channels ( within about 60 miles ) on my 57H94. I am not aware of any "HD specific" settings- it's all part of the receiving circuits in the TV. The first thing I would look at is to be sure you have a secure antenna connection. Then be sure you have selected the correct antenna input on the TV (there are two). HD channels, as an example will show up as 10-1, 10-2, etc. Most TVs have different sensitivity thresholds, regardless of size. Usually digital signals, including HD, are either there or not. In most cases if a TV picks up a decent analogue signal, a digital set should receive the digital signal, including available HD channels, as well. If you are going to use an antenna, rather than cable or satellite, try to get the best antenna you can afford, that will meet your physical requirements ( indoor / outdoor,etc.). Keep in mind that not all digital TV signal are HD. All of our local stations in this area transmit a digital signal, but true HD broadcasts remain variable. I hope this has helped in some way-Good Luck!

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Combining output from dish home distribution with ota antenna


You should have your system setup in the following manner below:

You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.

Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.
