Question about TV Receivers & DVRs

1 Answer

Are there any boxes that don't require 'autoscan' for setup?

Looking for a converter that doesn't require a scan or rescan to receive channels.

Have amplified rooftop antennas that I turn to receive multiple stations in opposite directions; the magnavox TB100MW9 requires a rescan whenever the antenna is turned. Current channels in memory are erased and then replaced with new ones---- which has turned out to be completely hit-and miss...mostly miss.

The magnavox won't allow any other channels to be added after it autoscans(channels CAN be added to the list but no reception is possible on these channels) The manual implies channels can be added manually, but apparently not so...
.

Have tried disconnecting antenna, running autoscan, then reconnecting antenna-----result was that ALL channels were being locked out with no reception possible even on local digital stations......

Thanx for any help!

HOW DO I AUTO SCAN CHANNELS ON VIEWSONIC VY2430


Do you mean the VT2430? Viewsonic doesn't list a VY2430.

For my Viewsonic TV, first make sure that your input is TV. (Press the Input button on the remote (upper left) or the TV (furthest right). Use the arrow keys or multiple presses of Input to change the current input.) Next press Menu. Use the up/down arrows to navigate to the TV menu (the icon looks like a TV). Press Enter. Set the type of incoming TV signal (Cable or Air or let the tv figure it out with Auto). Then go down to the line labeled AutoScan and press Enter. You may be prompted to begin the scan or to select the type of channels to scan. Press Enter again after making the selection.

Viewsonic has the manual for the VT2430 available on their site: http://www.viewsonic.com/products/vt2430.htm#tabbox_downloads . The direct link is http://www.viewsonic.com/assets/041/11502.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Can't get abc2, abc3, etc. we have a digital set top box. how can we get it to show the chanells?


My set-top box has an 'autoscan' function in the channel menu under setup. Try that to see if it will be able to find the missing channels. Here, some time after the initial changeover to digital, they changed some of the channels, and a new scan was necessary to get all again.

My set top box will no longer pick up certain channels such as itv and channel 4 stations !!


My set top box has setup menu, channels, autoscan to scan for channels. They changed some of the channels here after the original switch to digital, and a fresh autoscan was needed to again find the channels that moved. See if your box has autoscan for channels, and do it.

Cant get all channels


Instead of doing auto scan the should be a option for channel list or add\delete or manual scan. What kind of tv is it? You don't have a cable box right? If you still have trouble, just comment on this.
