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

    Hi Mark,

    I will downlosd the manual and we will get it right.
    I will get back with you ASAP.

    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.

Esa tv digital to analog

Hi.I assume you can watch some channels, using your indoor digital antenna. As far as I know, you need an intermediate "box", or interface between the cable TV coming in, and the decoder. This has to be installed by the cable company. Between the decoder and the interface, there are two connections. One signal connection and one UTP wire connection for communication between both units.At least, that's how it works in Belgium and most other countries.

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.

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.

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.
If this helped Vote/rate me.

Problemw with digital TV signal using an arieal

I recently purchased an ilo 32 inch tv and am having problems because when I first purchased it I had it connected to a cable box now I no longer have the cable box just the cable and am unable to hook it up because the connecter does not hook up to a regular cable cord is there a special connection that hooks it up directly to the cable cord? I read in the manual something about a F-type connector where can I get one?

Hook the cable to the back of the unit.. Go into the customer menu and make sure you've selected cable (as opposed to air). Then do an auto-program and that should solve the problem..
