Re: AV4 input

Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; Check page 27 of the manual (29 of the pdf file) for how to select AV4 as the video source. Check page 38 (40 of pdf) - AV4 can handle digital signals from a digital HD Receiver - Do you have one? exact connection details will depend on which digital set-top box you have. If you can post back with details of your receiver, then I hopefully can describe the connections exactly. Contact the transmitting company for details of which receivers will work. (ask again if you need contact details). Hope this helps :)

Re: AV4 input

To get your over the air signals, you would of course hook up the outside antenna cable to the back of the TV set, as per the owners manual. Then go to channel search in the set up menu as per the owners manual, then do a guide plus set up and follow the directions word for word in the owners manual. It is just way to long to explain here. In case you do not have the owners manual, you can get one from here Good Luck

I dont have a remote and im trying to set up a digital tv antenna but the only channels im getting is 3 and all the video inputs. How to i program channels


Usually channel 3 is picked up on a channel scan when there is an input device connected to the TV via a Coaxial Cable, thus using only channel 3 on the TV itself and using the Digital converter box to tune in the channels.

The TV will need to be Digital ready to connect only a Digital Antenna to it and programmed to receive the Digital Broadcasts over the air. If you are certain that this TV is Digital Ready (TV manufactured from 2009 to the present) you can use the menu button on the top, side, or front of the television, then use the channel / volume buttons to move around the menu, and the input button as the enter button.

You will want to select Antenna (ATSC) signal before starting the auto program so the TV will be able to recognize the Digital Channel Broadcasts.

Hope this helps!

When i mak the automatical programin for my tv (toshiba model no. CN27H95) it find nothing!!!! so there are others ways to mak manual programing to find chanels?

This feature is pretty reliable and the lack of channels may be due to the lack of signal to the set.

You must have either an antenna, a cable from a cable service or a satellite receiver connected for the set to find any channels.

I can't get FOX on my converter box--what is the channel # for FOX?

It could be your antenna. Some retailers sold consumers UHF-only outdoor antennas and not VHF/UHF combo antennas. Other outdoor antennas may not have a power boost included for the VHF antennas (rabbit ears). The new DTV signals from stations are now broadcasting in lower power signals than before June 12.

Outdoor Antenna

KMSP/FOX 9 and KARE 11 both broadcast on VHF signals. WCCO and KSTP broadcast on UHF signals. You will need a VHF/UHF outdoor antenna to pick up KMSP and KARE 11 and also get all the other channels.

Indoor Antenna

Check your antenna to make sure it's a UHF/VHF antenna. You may need an indoor antenna that has rabbit ears -- that is the best way to get KMSP/FOX 9 reception on your TV. Your antenna should have a power boost to amplify the VHF signal if you are having trouble getting FOX 9 or KARE 11.

Are you connected to cable TV or an outdoor antenna? If on cable TV check the signal on another TV or if on an outdoor antenna you will need a digital TV adaptor to pick up local stations due to them not being available in analog anymore. Please take moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Are you connected to a digtal converter or just a digital antenna? If only to an antenna then yes you will most likely pick up one or two low power UHF stations that are still able to broadcast in analog.

Is my polaroid TLX-04244B Digital

I checked out the manual for a similar model tv from polaroid...there's only one input for the coax cable from your antenna, so if the antenna's cable is connected to this input, this couldn't be the problem. What I do have trouble with on my own tv is that my indoor antenna location can make huge differences in recognizing all available digital signals. I could even have the antenna facing a different direction, and get different results. There are a few sites you can google for to find your distance from the broadcast towers, too. This might help to determine if you need a stronger antenna. It's a painfully long procedure to try different angles and positions for your antenna each time you run a channel scan, but this might be the only thing that would prevent you from picking up the digitals. I try the highest spot possible, and the one closest to the outdoors. Good luck, I hope you can pick them up soon! (Any antenna works...the industry tries to pass off "digital/hdtv specific antennas" to make a buck. I've used a cheapy rabbit-ears antenna and was able to bring in digital channels, as long as your tv or converter box is converting the signal.)

Digital built in turner

You'll need a better antenna. All the TV can do is show you the signal strength at the antenna input. If it's too low, only changing the antenna can help. This could mean simply adjusting the antenna position. You might need to replace the antenna with something larger or with a built-in amplifier. In severe cases, you might need to install an outdoor antenna to get a useable signal. With digital broadcasting it's all-or-nothing. A weak signal will either go undetected by the tuner or cause a blocky freezing (pixellated) display.

Switching to digital

No. The change only effects people that use rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you receive cable now, no change is necessary. You will not be able to receive the HD channels, but you can't receive thiose now either. An HD set will show you the HD signals that your current Standard Def set can not show. Please note that your current set has a digital tuner but processes analog signals. The "digital" tuner that is requried for rooftop reception is to process digital broadcasts as the analog signals will no longer be broadcast.

I hope this helps,

You may need a stronger antenna or your neighbor may have only a VHF antenna and most of the digital channels are being broadcast over UHf. . First, though, check the antenna connection as if they are dirty, they may be lowering the signal strength (these are the connections at the antenna). Check for the angel to put the tv antenna at to pick up the most channels. Internal antenna work very poorly. I have been having no problem with my outdoor UHF/VHF antenna, it picks up the same amount of channels in analog and digital.
