Question about Samsung TXE2745 TV

1 Answer

Partial Cable When I connect this TV to a coax cable line (not through a converter box) it only gets a signal through the first 16 channels or so, but it should be getting many more. An older Zenith on the same line gets everything.

SOURCE: Partial Cable

The TV is set to antenna mode or over the air mode rather than the cable mode. You should be able to navigate through the menus to change it to cable mode. That should resolve it.

How to set up vhs taping

Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

How does my mother hook up the antenna and get her TV to work (no cable)

First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like. Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

4. Plug the power cord into the back of the cable box and into a power outlet.

How do I tape onto a vhs from analog tv with converter box?

There are 2 options-
Option 1
Connect the coax cables in the following order.
1 From the wall to the input of the converter box.
2. From the output of the converter box to the input of the VCR.
3. From the VCR to the TV input.

Here is how you record with this option.
1. Tune the converter box to the channel you wish to record.
2. Turn the channel on the VCR to channel 3 or program the VCR to record channel 3 this will record whatever channel you have your converter box set to at the time of the recording.

Option 2- (will not work on satellite)
1. From the wall to a 2 way splitter (made for digital cable. General rule of thumb with digital cable is gold does not usually mean good.)
2. One output from the splitter to the converter box and the other to the input of the VCR.
3. Connect an Audio Video (RCA (yellow/red/white cable)) from the VCR to the TV input.
4. Select the appropriate input on the TV for the VCR.

Here is how you record with option-
Tune the VCR to the channel you wish to record and push the record button or program the timer to record the channel and time that you wish.
Note- with this option you will only be able to record channels that you would receive without the converter box. Also each time that you split the cable line you loose part of your incoming signal and depending on how you house is set up this option could affect the quality of your digital signals on the converter box.

My tv got no sound..but if connect a video/dvd via rca ok.

Sounds like you have a tuner or an antenna problem. If you are using a DVT converter box to watch off the air TV, the signal has to be very good to get sound and picture. Try connecting a VCR or a DVD player trough the coax cable and see if it you get sound an pic on Channel 3 or 4. If you do, it is an antenna problem.

No cable channels at all on old Sony Triniton

make it sure that the coaxial cable has its own signal! if your tv has a raster (sometimes blue) and it says that the tv is good, but if there's no channel at all then the problem is in digital converter or the connection of the coaxial cable comes can also try auto programing but if the problem still occured then contak your cable subscription channel

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...

Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Female coax connector in tv bad?

If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
