Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I need to be able to use the entire channel selector.

I need to attach a digital box to this television. The box needs the tuner to be set at a particular channel. The channel selector switch on the tv bypasses that channel. How do I unprogram the channel selector so that I may tune it to the needed channel?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of possibilities:

  • on the remote press the channel number;
  • in the MENU/SETTINGS, add that channel to the memory;
  • in some models/version of the digital receiver box, there is a selector switch at the back between 2 channels for the RF output.
Additionally, post back the brand and model number that we can figure out more detailed steps should it be necessary.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Welcome to Fixya! On My Combo, I went into the Channel settings and Manually Set the Channel . Also on some models you can have it set to When you Push Input it will go automatically. My 36 inch did this Automatically with no setting Changed.

Using a digital antenna to channel scan for broadcasted channels


It is no different that channel scanning for cable or analog over-the-air channels. You simply ensure that you have selected the digital tuner of the set prior to scanning. Some older flat panel sets do not have integrated digital tuners. A digital antenna alone will not allow these sets to receive digital broadcast channels. A converter box is needed to convert the digital broadcast signals to analog for the tuner in the set. Also, sets that do not have digital tuners may not support the resolution rate of digital TV broadcasts. Most digital HD broadcasts are 720p and a few are 1080p.

What settings do my Samsung tv need to be on to link a digital cable box


The digital cable box will most likely connect via an HDMI connection. Simply ensure that the SOURCE selection for the set matches up to the HDMI port that the digital box is attached to. There is no need for any kind of channel scan when using this type of connection as the cable box acts as the digital tuner. If you are coming into the set on the coaxial cable line, then that is a different story. Ensure that the digital cable box is turned on, then do a channel scan to locate the channel that the cable box is using to send the signal.

Attach tv converter box


Everything is digital now. You will need a digital converter box. You will connect an antenna to it, and then connect the box to your tv. The box will come with it's own remote. Your tv will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on the converter box you get), and you will control the stations with the remote that came with the converter. You can get them at any electronics store.

Tv stays on one channel,no color or picture just ghost or outline, i have a Sharp lc46sb 54u


Check the settings to see if it is locked on channel 3 for external tuner source to have an input from a cable box ant in that needs 3 to function or from some other externally decoded signal like a vcr. Does the TV have a Digital tuner or the old analog tuner? If it's digital you can hook up a rabbit ear antenna with the UHF output on it & should be able to tune in some stations. If it's the old style then you will need a converter box to get it to receive any stations.
Fist check the settings to see if it has it set to lock on channel 3 for external tuner source.

Trying to hook up a digital antenna but no channels coming in


You need to get a connection from a local cable or wireless service with a set top box to be connected to the input. Please check with your local operator and see if the set top box is needed for the digital feed.
Otherwise you might need a dish with the LNB to be used to the TV. Digital tuner means that the tuner is working to scan and memorising the full band width of the channels with digital processing and thus faster and crisp.
Check the details of the TV from a forum:

PROBLEM WITH GETTING LOCAL hd CHANNELS


You need to have a set top box.

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 $150.
