SOURCE: Can't pick up all the signals

I always tell people to carefuly read their instruction manual and consult the product tech support before determing that there is actualy a fault with their unit.

If sounds like the tuner module or the controler board for the tuner may be failing, or there is a power supply distribution fault to the tuner section and or its controler. This has to be service by the manufacture.

One of the criteria I recommend when people buy an expensive appliance or TV is to make sure that there is local authorized service. I also recommend an extended warrany for expensive items. The warranty is like insurance. You may or may not need to collect!

My cable box is hooked up but no signal can u tell me whats wrong


If you hookup your TV directly to the coaxial cable, bypassing the cable-box, do you get a few channels? If so, then the coaxial cable is carrying a signal, which is good.

How are you hooking the output from the cable-box to the input(s) on the TV? Coaxial output port on box to coaxial input port on TV?
Red/blue/green "component" outputs on box to matching inputs on TV? Red/White audio outputs on box to red/white inputs on TV? HMDI output from box to HDMI input on TV?

You have to "tell" the TV which of the inputs:
* coaxial (with TV set to Channel 3 or 4)
* component
* HDMI
to "listen" to.

Trying to hook tv up outside of house ran cable from box in my house wont run my tv outside can I buy hdmi ******* and have it work ? Thanks


I'm hoping you hooked the cable you ran for the outside tv to the output of the cable box and didn't make the mistake of splitting the cable that comes into the satellite box. If you take the cable that goes to your TV inside you should be able to put a splitter in it and run the TV inside as well as the one outside. If it is a long distance to the outside TV you may want to buy a powered splitter that amplifies the signal. You should also be using RG6 coaxial cable to cut down on lose.

Hitachi 50v500 lcd rear projection just trying to get the setup so cable works on ant a can't make the channel move when im on ant a set up.


be aware this model has almost a 100% failure rate on the light engine which while not related to this issue should be kept in mind.

If you have cable get a box with a/v jacks on the back and hook to a rear input on the set--bypass the whole issue and get a better picture.


PS: I don't think it is the set itself causing this ........

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.

Hitachi 43 Rear Projection


Steve, I would say that the problem is with the Direct box, simplest way to verify that would be to disconnect the box from your set & hook-up a DVD player to the tv and run it, if the picture is normal, probably the box. That test does not rule out the tuner in the tv but is a start. Have you tried re-booting the box by removing the AC cord from the box for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in ? Be advised it may take as long as 5 minutes for the box to boot back up once you plug it back in, try these things and let me know results, BMW Rider

Take the cable wire that hooks to the IN connector on your cable box and hook it to the IN connector on a 2-way cable splitter.Get 2 more short cable wires and hook one end to the OUT connector on the splitter and the other end to the IN connector on the cable box.Take the other short wire and hook it to the other OUT connector on the splitter then hook the other end of this wire to your tv (you must have two sets of RF connectors on your tv for this to work)Or you can tap the A/V connector off your cable box hooked to a video input on your tv.
