Re: I have a jvc tv model av27530. Disconnected cable...
You probably have to find your original remote to the set and go through setup in your menu. On most sets, there will be a menu item which will allow you to switch from Cable mode to Air mode. If you have no Cable connected, then you must set tuner in Air mode.
If you are using an external device to run on channel three, then try this:
Make sure device (rather it's a vcr or game console), is hooked up to your Antenna Input connector. Also, some of these devices will have a small hidden switch on back that says 3 and 4. Move the switch to 3 position. Turn on device. Go into TV menu and do a Channel scan. This should auto program any device hooked up to the TV antenna input jack to channel three.
Keep in mind that you may not receive anything by Feburary of this year without an HD converter box to tune in channels with and outdoor antenna.

It depends on your setup.
Think of the Philips DVD3460 as an independent, standalone television set. It has its own analogue tuner, and its own video input.
If you have an analogue RF TV signal (coaxial cable) going in to the Philips DVD3460, you can watch whatever you want on any other TV connected to the TV signal coaxial cable, since the regular analog TV cable carries all of the channels.
However, if you are using a cable or satellite box and use the "Video in" function of the DVD recorder or just have the DVD recorder tuned to channel 3 or 4 to record from a cable or satellite box, you can't record one channel and watch another unless you have a second cable box..
If you are trying to watch a diffrent show than from the main tv you will need to get another satellite box. If you do not want to get another box you will only beable to watch what the main tv with the box is watching. To do this just put the tv on chanal 3 and watch wat the main tv is watching.
I have been installing satellite Tv for the last 15 years. If you would like more help please ask. I will try to help you more.
Yes, with the Direct TV box it did all the tuning and your TV had only to be on one channel, normally ch 3 or ch 4. Now that it is not there any more your TV tuner must do the work. You now will have to tell the TV to search for channels. Use your remote and TV menu to do this. You will be able when the search is complete to see some of the cable channels but other premium cable channels you won't be able to see without a cable box.
ok, The issue will be in the sequence you have things connected. The connections sequence is going to be controlled by what connections are available. I assume the Set Top controller is connection to your Antennea connection on the TV. Your TV should be on channel 3 or 4. The next step depends on what type of connectors you are using for the JVC DVD. I have an Antennea output on mine so I connected them in series. If you don't have an Antennea output from teh DVD player you will need to connect the DVD using Audio/Video cables which means you will need to connect to the TV alternate Source connector and to watch DVD's you will need to change to that source. Much like you would switch between regular TV and VCR tape on a VCR player connected to the Antennea connector.
> I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume. That is because your TV is looking at the output of the cable box (probably on channel 3 or 4) so the TV has to be statically tuned to see the cable box's output. On the second question; I, and perhaps others, can't answer this without spending a lot of time to download manuals for both systems while you have them (presumably, since they are new) on hand.You didn't include the TV's model number anyhow so even that wouldn't be adequate. The home theatre may have a receiver but what does it receive? Unless it also has channel capabilities that correspond to cable channels, it can't.The typical routing should be from the cable box to the TV S-video input and the sound can be routed separately from the cable box to either/or both, the home theatre's and also the TV's audio inputs. When I am installing new stuff, I make a sketch of the routing I want (or have) to use.To me, this is less confusing than the supplied instructions.
Try plugging your cable box in using a/v cables (red,white,yellow) and see if you have a picture on a different input from the box. If so, go into your general settings in the box and change the output channel to 4 instead of 3. Then try your TV on 4 and see if your picture comes in. I have seen TV tuners go out on just one channel before.
This may indicate a problem with the RF tuner. When you are using the DVD player is the output of the DVD using the F (RF Coax) Conncetor or is the DVD connect to the TV using the Video/Audio cables (either Composite (Red, White, Yellow) or Component (Red, Green, Blue)). I am do however believe this to be a RF tuner problem. Make sure that the TV is set to channel 3 and the cable box is connected to the TV (set to channel 3). What you could also do is get digital cable and use the video output jack as the input to the TV on one of your aux positions.
I would first make sure the tunner is on channel 3 when using the regular cable box, or if you are using the TV's cable ready features make sure the tunner is working correctly, this might have to be done by a qualifide TV repair person.
