Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

Can't get TV to recognize the digital signal from cable connectio

When I hook up the digital cable connection the TV does not recognize it. If I hook up the regular antenna it receives the local HD broadcast fine. I noticed that it has the station number and then shows " (air)" next to it. It seems like there is some kind of setting to change to recognize the digital cable input, but I can't find it -- any ideas on this? Do you think it even has the capacity to accept the cable input? Any help on this is really appreciated -- can't really afford another TV right now.

    Thanks Lone99star, but I still can't find how to change it. When I get to the TV menu, it shows either air on or off (shows rings attaching the air to the category). Can't find anything else. I'll keep trying. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'm willing to listen. Thank you.

You will need to go to the Video Menu, change the tuning band option from Air to Cable, I do not have the manual so I cant give you the exact path to the option but if you search through the menus you should be able to find it.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

    I finally found the manual, I downloaded the manual for Protron PLTV-32C, not sure if that is the same as you have.
    This manual shows to have a TV Settings menu, if you have that menu Air to Cable can be changed from there.
    Let me know if I have the right manual, if not I can get another.

How do I hook up Coby 5" black & white TV to my digital converter box ?


You will need a digital to analog converter which you can get at Radio Shack, Best Buy and most big box retail outlets or online. Your Coby is most likely analog and will require the digital signal to be converted to an analog signal from the digital converter box to the TV. UNLESS the digital converter box has analog (round connectors on the back) then you just need an analog RCA cable (which you can also get almost anywhere even your local CVS/Walgreens) to make the connection.

This tv has analog tuner and you need digital tuner in tv to get digital signal in UK, alternate way is to hook cable box with this tv that will convert digital signal into AV output that will connect to AV input of tv to get cable channels.

Try going into your setup menu. Look for a setting for "Cable/Air". Try switching it to Cable and then doing a channel search. If you are using a cable box try setting channel to 3 on tv. Those are the two easiest things I can think of off the top of my head without seeing it.

I want to hook up my computer to my tv. Is there a plug.


Check your tv for a blue DB15 port. That would a direct connection for your computer. All you need is the monitor connectio cord from your monitor. If you monitor is hard wired you can buy monitor cables at local electronic stores for about 10 dollars.

Satellite stations


Make sure the satellite receiver is properly connected to the television and that you are on the right input. Then make sure that the satellite receiver is properly connected to the cable outlet (common problem; people get the co-axial hook ups on the box mixed up).

If you are still not getting any signal, see if you can find the signal quality or signal reading in the main menu. Make sure that you have a signal at least over 80% (a few 0's on individual transponders are fine). IF you are getting some of your transponders, it's probably an issue with a connection, the dish, or the multiswitch. If you are not getting any signal at all, the cable is probably not connected to the system.

Sometimes, satellite receivers do go bad (just like any other electronic). If you know that the cable is good and that it's connected to the system and you try to hook up another receiver to the cable and that one works, then you can conclude that the receiver in question is faulty.

No signal


Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.

I was given this tv I need to connect cable


your t.v will hook up directly to cable. if you are asking how to hook to a digital box then you can hook it up the same as you had it hooked on your previous t.v. but if you want to get high def channels then you are going to have to take your digital box back to Time Warner and swap it for a high def digital box. or you can just call Time Warner and have a technician go to your house and swap/ hook things up for you. Hope this helps you.
