Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Viewsonic n3290w-au Initially digital audio and video were out of synch, and epg was showing no information for all channels. Ran the auto tuner again and it won't find digital channels at all. Analogue is fine. Have checked cable from tv all the way back to antenna on roof, can't see any problems. What can I check next? Trying to get hold of another tv to check if signal from antenna is okay. Haven't tried a different fly lead, but if analogue reception is perfect then surely the cable is fine.

SOURCE: Can't pick up all the signals

I always tell people to carefuly read their instruction manual and consult the product tech support before determing that there is actualy a fault with their unit.

If sounds like the tuner module or the controler board for the tuner may be failing, or there is a power supply distribution fault to the tuner section and or its controler. This has to be service by the manufacture.

One of the criteria I recommend when people buy an expensive appliance or TV is to make sure that there is local authorized service. I also recommend an extended warrany for expensive items. The warranty is like insurance. You may or may not need to collect!

SOURCE: LG LCD HDTV 'NO SIGNAL'

To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru

SOURCE: I have a Seanix LCD

Your remote control should have a button to select the Source signal, which should bring up a menu with the list of available soures. If Digital or DTV is shown as one of the soures then you should be able to select this and attempt to tune in the digital signal. If this is not present in the source list then your TV is unlikely to be digital. A digital TV remote control will also have extra buttons for digital TV e.g. GUIDE, SUBTITLES, EPG.

Hello
you haven't given the brand name and model numbe of TV here. yet I posts this solution assuming that it to be LCD tv. You says that the Tv works with converter and not works with digital box. Check the digital box for any malfunction. I can oly give you this much advice as your post does not tell exatly what the fault is. If you want anymore assistance from me, please be clear out the situation you faces now. OK.

TV/VCR Recording of TV Programs Using a Digital Converter Box


Hi Rick
I think you are painting yourself into a corner. So to Speak.
Why buy a SetTop Box to convert to an old VHS Tape when you can buy a Digital Recorder for probably the same price.
The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
  1. Main Features:
    DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
    DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
    2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
    Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
    HDMI Digital Output
    Digital Audio Output
    CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
    Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
    Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
    EPG searching and auto download
    Recorded program edit
    Parental Control
    Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
    Built-in WiFi
    Network Playback
    USB 2.0 Interface


Now
This was my original reply until I saw the light.

So, Hopefully one of these will answer your queerie.

A digital TV picks up the new Digital Transmission and stores it in memory, then supplies the high definition to the input of your TV.
With a STB, once the digital broadcast signal is captured by the Set Top Box tuner, it is stored in memory and then it is converted to Video Format and comes out of the back connectors as a standard video & audio signal on the Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) as a composite signal that can also be attached to an older VCR tape recorder.
If the STB output connectors have a Red White & Yellow RCA plugs then it is all ready to be picked up by an older TV or VCR.
Most set top boxes also have HDMI Output for high definition video & sound in the one cable, which attaches directly to the back of your TV (assuming it doesn't already have a tuner (STB) already built in).
HDMI is the state of the art cabling for modern devices. But probably not on the old VCR.
It will either use Component, Composite or SVideo cables. Match one of these cable standards up with your VCR.
Cheers.... Trevor

I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

Follow this steps and try

in windows 7
On the start screen, scroll to Tasks, click settings, click TV, and then click Set Up TV Signal.

Follow the steps to connect a TV signal, depending on the type of tuner or tuners that the cable is connected to

********
else try

The Windows Media Center TV Pack has an "Auto Select" option which removes channels that have a weak signal from the EPG. To run the "Auto Select" option to check the list of available channels and to evaluate the signal strength for each channel, follow these steps:
  1. Start Windows Media Center.
  2. In the Start window, scroll to Tasks, click Settings, and then click TV.
  3. Click Guide.
  4. Click Edit Channels.
  5. Click Auto Select.
The "Auto Select" option tests each channel. Based on whether a strong or a weak signal is found, the "Auto Select" option puts a check mark in the box next to the channel. As soon as the detection process is complete, you have to click the "Save" option to save the newly selected channels to the EPG.

Does this particular television have a digital tuner built in? If this is the case, try to search for your channels. There should be a section in the manual for this. If you have an external tuner, check and make sure you have the correct input selected and then change the channels on that device rather than the television.

Loss of BBC channels


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.
