Poor reception on atsc portable tv

I just purchased a 7" axion tv to replace my old b&w portable. I am using the external antenna that came with the tv, but I am only getting about 3 channels clearly. Is there a better quality antenna I can purchase to get a few more stations?

An external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

Do I need a digital converter box & antenna to get


It really depends upon your TV. If your TV is newer and has an ATSC tuner in it, then no - you'll just need the antenna. However, if your TV is older and doesn't have an ATSC tuner, you'll need an external tuner, what you're calling digital convertor, and an antenna to get the local channels. Use Google or another search engine to find the specifications for your TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner. Or, connect an antenna to your TV, run the channel scan (off-air antenna mode) to see if you get any local channels. If you don't, you'll need the external tuner.

How do i improv my signal strength? it has always been very poor no matter where i go.


Best solution to improve signal strength is with an antenna other than the simple rod antenna.
The rod antenna is really only useful for very close stations and does not work well under most conditions, especially if you are on the move while using it.

Even a simple portable rabbit ears antenna can make a big difference.
Believe it or not, I have used a rabbit ear from the local dollar store to receive much better signals than with the rod antenna.
If you are using the Haier in a home, you might try purchasing an inexpensive old-school antenna from solid signal or radio shack. I set mine on a plastic garbage can in the attic and ran a 100 foot coax cable down to my old cable wire outlet.
You can also buy amplified antennas which look good and mount on the wall or near a window for apartment dwellers.
You might also try making your own HD antenna out of coat hangers and a piece of wood.

Plugged in, cable connected, turned on, says "No Signal"


OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.

If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.

This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.

I hope this helps.

Digitial reception for casio 980


You won't. Because the unit isn't likely to have an coaxial external cable input, there is no simple way to achieve this. Full-size sets not equipped for digital signals can accept the down-converted signal from a converter box that receives the digital signal and converts it to NTSC standards for older sets. Direct reception of the new signal requires an ATSC tuner and there is no way to provide that for your hand-held. It would be possible to use the output of a converter box clipped onto the antenna of your Casio and see the channels the converter box can receive but your hand-held wouldn't be very portable anymore. Sorry-

VIORE PLC7V95 7'' portable TV, cant get channels when scan


I notice that on mine, the positioning of the included tv antenna is very, very, very finicky. I also don't know how to "add" a new channel other than to hook it to the big house antenna and pick "re-scan" (or auto-scan or whatever it's called).

So I think your best bet is to pick a better antenna or know that even the tiniest fiddling with the antenna makes a diff. Sometimes, I even have the antenna horizontal (using the magnet) to get the good reception on a given channel. Seems like a hassle except that what should I expect from a tiny antenna....

How to install a converter box on the tv


First Converter boxes are a poor economic investment.
Second you have an HDTV. It does not need a Converter box.
Just connect an amplified antenna.

Specs:

Built-in ATSC QAM Tuners - QAM and ATSC tuners included to enable the set to receive Digital cable-in-the-clear signals, as well as digital terrestrial broadcasts. HDTV reception is possible by adding an Optional HDTV antenna

We just converted our analog and get a bad picture


I would think it is wise to try another converter box. That is the only way to know for sure. There is also a possiblity that the reception where you are located is very poor.

You should be able to hook into your tv with no problem using a audio/video jack available at any radio shack, you would tune your tv to either the select "video" channel or ch.3, your t.v. set should have no problem with the attached device.
