Cable using built in tuner.
I have always been able to select HD channels (ex. 1-1,1-4,1-6 ect)
When I key in the HD channels the tv doesnt repond. If I use the channel up or down button the volume cuts off but it doent show mute.
When this first started happening I could power off and then on a few times until I could press the channel up button and it would scroll through the channels. For the last month every time I press the channel up button the volume just cuts off. (not mute because mute displays mute)
Any help will be appreciated.

Re: Olevia 537 - wont select HD channels
I assume the control panel on the tv still works correctly?

I don't know this model of TV, however, you may find that you need to use the Source button on the remote to cycle through the available inputs & select digital tuner as the input source before you press the Menu button & go into the setup section.
Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.
I was able to allow whatever cable it is my apartment provides by using the tuner to auto-search channels. I did this without the remote in case anyone is missing theirs (I found mine). By selecting the tuner from your source options, I (?) think (?) it says 1:1 on the tuner, being the start of the channels, just in case you or whomever may be over-looking the source - tuner - option. From there do an auto search for channels. The more you have the longer it takes. Not more than 10 or so minutes,it's no big deal. This should work, it did for me.
Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable? Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.
I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.
I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.
I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.
Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.
My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.
Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.
This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.
Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.
Try to connect the ROKU player to the television directly Make sure that the internet connection to the player is from your router Use your television remote to select the proper input to your television Try this and check if it works. It should work
you said you are using composite cables..? that means you have some kind of cable box ? if you want to get HD channels you have to use a HD box that is supplied by the cable company.. the HD cable box then has to connect to the tv with component cables (green,blue, red cables) or HDMI cable.. to send the HD signal to the television.
By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a
built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive
high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an
external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition
programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least
