Question about Toshiba CF27H50 TV
I have an old Toshiba Model nr: cf27h50
I had to get a Digital TV Converter the other day adn when I am trying to connect it the manual for the converter tells me to: Turn on the tv and switch it to external AV mode, and then I will see a picture coming from the box. My problem is, I cant find how to get it to AV mode. I ahve connected so many things through my reciever with this TV, so i did not think it was going to be that hard to connect this one. Again, I don't know how to find the AV mode. Anyone who can help?
The converter that you have will only work thru the tv cabel. If you have a s-video you can use that for the picture but you still need to use the red and white audio cables for the sound. This converter will not give you HD but it will make the picture you recieve better. The picture will play thru your TV on chanel 3 or 4 and you need to use the remote that came with it to change stations. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem just now trying to get my Tivax STB-T8 converter to work the 1st time I tried to set it up. I couldn't see anything on the TV or VCR that indicated what "external AV mode" is or if either unit had it.
The ONLY change I made -- on both the TV & the converter box -- was to switch the "ch 3 or ch 4" from ch 4 to ch 3. (I'd always used my TV & VCR on the ch 4 setting.) Once I did that, I got the menu & was able to proceed w/the next steps & it appears to work.
One caveat: I have yet to figure how the VCR works in all of this. I have it hooked up in the mix, but have yet to attempt to have both the VCR & TV on. (Maybe I don't need to do that anymore -- I may have done that cuz my external antenna was hooked up to the VCR & then the VCR to the TV & that's how i got a decent signal.)
I have no clue as to what the difference is betw ch 3 & ch 4 or if it would solve your seemingly similar problem on your particular TV & converter combination, but it would be worth giving it a shot.
If it works, I'd be interested to hear your feedback.
Fingers crossed -- Jim
