I have a JVC G40 DVD home theater system and when I play DVD's the voice and picture don't match up. Specifically, Peoples lips move and then a second later what they say is heard...how do I fix this?


When viewing on Digital TV:-
Sometimes Audio and Video signal can not be transmitted simultaneously due to additional process time for the video signal compared to that of the audio signal.
Often video signal takes more time than the audio signal to convert from analogue signal to digital signal in the Digital TV.
It may result in mismatch of the picture and sound.
In the TH-G30/40's HD AV Sync menu, you can adjust the audio signal delay for simultaneous AV signal transmission
1. Delay time can be varied in 10msec steps.(0 to 300ms)
2. Delay time is different between TV Brands.
So you need to adjust the delay time for correct lip-sync.
The adjustment is listed in the instruction book page12

Convertor box is hooked up but says no signal please describe how to hook up to make sure it is done correctly


I'm thinking that the particular channel it is on has no signal, and that it's your TV is not getting a signal from the converter. Ignore it, and do the scan that the instructions call for. The scan will land on enough channels that do have signals and once you tune to one of those you'll be ok. Once you're set up, you'll find that stations that are normally on air just aren't from time to time. Just skip over those until things settle down later. You can always delete those stations if you didn't want them anyway, and there are new stations that are not fully operational yet. Rescan every couple of weeks,you'll find new channels being added from time to time.

Unit intermittently makes the TV flicker the sound and picture.


I would be checking and trying new leads from the antenna part of your telly to where they go into the wall , we had a problem with a new tv that used to turn itself off and on we got the tv replaced with another new one and it still did it . it turned out to be a faulty cable from the pay tv box on top of the telly as they emit FM waves just like the radio and it was sending signals to the remote on the tv to turn it off

Cannot keep all channels on tv


When you say you "lose" channels, you probably mean there's no signal there anymore but they are still in the channel memory. This is normal if you have a rotatable antenna. You need to mark the rotator (or just keep a chart nearby) with the heading for each channel.

If you mean you're losing channels from memory when rescanning after turning the antenna, the only solution I can offer is to record the channels found (and their signal levels) after scanning a direction. Then change directions and rescan. See what new channels have been found, what have been lost, or how signal level has changed on common channels. Then you can manually add whatever you need, and you'll know what direction is best for each. It's tedious, but you should only need to do it once.

Convertor box and Sony Wega with PIP (2 Tuners) and new Digital DVR/VCR


I wonder if the RF interference from the digital tuner. That box will only allow ouput either through the coax or the AV ports. If you do both you will not get a picture.

If you switch them you have to tell the box what your using for output by going through the setup process.

Is the Zenith 901 converter box for your cable TV.

Don't get ABC or NBC local channels anymore


ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.

Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.

When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.

Picture problems


This could be an unshielded cable problem. Also magnetisam from speaker(s)(i.e. subwoofer) could affect signal from satelite antenna, or could affect satelite receiver if it's near.
