Question about Akai LCT2721AD 27 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Conversion to DTV from analog

Would you please walk me through what I need to do to connect an outside antenna and be able to receive HDTV on my AKAI model LCT2721AD flat screen. I am going to discontinue cable service as most of programs we like are being broadcast locally in HD.
Do I need a HD topset box or anything like that? Or do I just connect the coax cable to the d-cable post on the back of the tv?

My DTV channels say no signal. This happens quite often and usually i can hit the input and go to HDTV or AV1 for a short time and when i go back to DTV my stations are there but today it is doing...


i have same problem,control if analog programs are received -if you have them.
You should use Antenna amplifier,better the ones that are fixed with no adjustment needed -those have preamp also and a good gain over whole band .

I have no cable how do i program this tv set?


I assume you also have no satelite dish. You are probably on an antenna (or rabbit ears). If you don't already have one, you need a DTV Digital to Analog converter box. I am assuming you want to snag broadcast signals from the air, like in the good old days before the massive digital conversion of most broadcast stations. Might be hard to find one in retail stores, but start with WalMart or Best Buy, and if that fails you might check eBay (I think it is too late to get the government rebate which absorbed almost the entire cost of the box, but you might check around on Google searching on 'DTV Digital Analog Rebate'). The DTV converter will change the digital signal now being broadcast on most stations to an analog signal that your antenna connection will recognize. Without a signal, you can't program the channels because the tuner has nothing to latch onto. After getting a signal you just follow instructions for your TV to search for channels -- if you don't have instructions you might have to play around with the menus on-screen until you find what you need, but essentially it will be obvious when you see it ... the on-screen instruction will say something like select or program channels, and may let you choose manally or search automatically (choose automatically after hooking in the DTV converter to find all channels). Hope I understood your problem, your description is a bit vague.

Need a manual for Insignia LCD22


You need a digital converter box. Since the DTV transition, the broadcasting of analog (i.e. signals you get with an antenna) have ceased. You can still get them only by purchasing a digital converter box.
