Are you sure your cable coax source is broadcasting any unencrypted digital channels, and is the signal strenth relatively good? In the Channel Scan, you need to also specify the source/input type as digital, and be sure to use the coax connector marked DIGITAL Cable (or similar). Begin the autoscan--it will take a while as the TV tries to tune any/all digital signals--most of which, if you're cable provider is like 90% out there (interested in profits), this might take 15-20 minutes, and will likely end up in lotsa black non-broadcasting detections (placeholders for on demand content), but hopefully, you'll find a 1/2 dozen or so 'clear' unencrypted. If you know the channel of a KNOWN digital local, tune to it, even if the picture is not initially visible. The lock-on takes a few seconds and if a signal is weak, it may take a long while if it can lock on at all. Usually, you'll find your local PBS stations on unencrypted channels from your cable provider, along with major network tv stations (NBC,ABC,FOX,CBS), but it all depends on what the cable provider allows. Don't expect them to tell you what exactly is free either! Underground webs will list your provider, Google to find out what to expect, and don't expect what you find to be all accurate. If you're in a decent reception area, and have any sort of an antenna, you'd likely pick up some of the OTA HD broadcasts, maybe even with just a coathanger :), just to verify that your QAM/OTA tuner is functioning.

How do i select the channel menu


Many times the re-scan tune option goes away if you've selected an input on the TV other than the "tuner", "Antenna" or similar (ie: AV1, HDMI1, Sat, Cable, etc.do not make use of your TV's internal tuner).

Make sure you select an input on your TV, ( tuner, etc.) that will use the tuner and have an antenna or non-digital Cable TV coaxial cable connected. Then attempt to scan again.

What can a tv tuner do, dose it work on a blank


A tv tuner card is a device usually inserted into a computer screen or tower. this device has a "Coaxial Cable" jack in the back so that "Cable" can be hooked into the monitor. Along with this most come with an input selector. this enables you to switch between tv and computer with the push of a button.

My Sources ( I simply Google'd "What does a tv tuner card do") (lol just so i dont answer incorrectly and look like a fool lol.

OK GL!

and btw i have one and love it! it came in my monitor and i didnt think of it much till my TV went out on me. after hooking up the coaxial i havent gone without for a while :)

PS ive got built in speakers in my monitor. when i turn cable on it comes through them. the nice thing is my USB headset stays sending sound from my PC (so if im running a scan ill heard the BEEP at the end and know its done :)

GL

any further clarification required just comment and ill check back

***A TV Tuner Card NEEDS cable to be input into it. You cannot connect to the net or run it off your pc :S

Hot to hook up cable


This monitor with a television tuner does not have a coaxial connection. I was able to get cable by connecting (buying if you don't have) to my dvd/vcr which had the coaxial connectors. Then I ran the video component cable (green, blue & red - had to buy that) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. Then I ran the audio cable (red & white) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. A little tricky figuring out where on the tv to actually connect but eventually got it. YUV2 on the side.

If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.

If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).

Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture


Hi Betty, First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver
