    Thanks for your solution. Actually, the only receiver I have is a SONY Digital SAT-T60 receiver/recorder which I used to use with DIRECTV when I subscribed to that service. Can this be used to pick up digital signals from my outdoor antenna?

    techman:

    Thanks for your response. I do have the owner's manual and it says to connect the antenna to a digital set top box (what's this?). Then, connect the se top box to the AV4 input using the H, V, Pr, Pb and Y jacks. I was wondering based on the response from Noggin if I could use my SONY receiver/recorder SAT-T60?

Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; http://www.p4c.philips.com/na4/3/34pw981599/34pw981599_dfu_aen.pdf 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 :)

    Here's the link for the support page for the SAT-T60;
    http://esupport.sony.com/perl/model-docu...

    You can download the user manual and the installation guide. However, the manual is mostly describing using Direct TV, and there was no reference I could find to HD signals - I suspect the box will not decode them. Without causing any damage though, you should be able to hook your antenna cable to the "VHF/UHF In" Socket on the back of the receiver. It will either work or not. Perhaps you need a decoding card to make it work.

    Best to contact one of the local transmitting channels and ask which type of reciever they recommend/supply and if a card is required.

    For sure you need one that is HD capable.

    :)

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 http://www.p4c.philips.com/na4/3/34pw981599/34pw981599_dfu_aen.pdf Good Luck

What can I hook up to this tv to get basic channels. Not cable?


Hi,

Depending on your location and distance from the available broadcast outlets, you may be able to receive basic commercial broadcast channels using a simple inside or outside ad-on antenna, available from most electronic retail stores or on line vendors such as Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, etc.

Does this product have a built in digital to analog converter?


This tv incorperates a full digital PLL tuner. It does not need a digital to analog coverter since analog signals is no longer used. All tv stations now broadcast with digital signal. It will receive local broadcast stations just connect a goood quality antenna to the tv. You will need to do a scan and the tv will store all of your local broadcasting stations within range. An outdoor antenna works best for digital signals.

PICTURE SEEMS TO BE BLURRED WHEN ITEMS MOVE FAST ON SCREEN, ESPECIALLY PERSONS IN CLOSE UP.


The Sony Bravia KDL-32BX320 generally gets excellent reviews (4.5 stars out of 5) from owners, so I have to wonder what you're watching.

This is an HDTV and should excel when provided an HD signal to display. SD (standard definition) signals often look worse on an HD display than on an SD display. An HD signal is only available via the following ways (reference the image below):9_27_2011_4_28_11_pm.jpg
1) An "over the air" (UHF / VHF) antenna is connected to the cable / antenna input and there is a broadcaster of HD content nearby (only an over the air antenna can input HD signals to this jack - no cable boxes, etc.).

2) An HD Cable TV, DirecTV or Dish Satellite set top converter, Blu Ray Disk Player (or other HD source is connected via HDMI or Component RGB jacks.

3) An HD video played back from a computer hard drive connected to the VGA jack (when the computer is equipped with a modern processor and video card).


You will NOT be able to view HD video if:

1) The source material is a SD (non-HD) source. An over the air antenna will not provide HD signals if the broadcaster does not have HD content to show or is not capable of broadcasting in HD. Digital is not necessarily HD.

2) The source material (other than over the air antenna) is connected via Antenna / Cable jack.

3) The source material is connected via Composite jacks.

The USB jack is generally not an input for motion pictures, but may display stills - depending on the TV's ability to play the format they are stored in (jpeg, gif, bmp etc.).

Hopefully, this will help you solve the problem you're having with the picture. Good luck!

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.

What Antenna Is Right For You?

Need help locating the proper outdoor antenna to receive your local television broadcast channels? Based on geographical maps and signal strengths, AntennaWeb.org locates the best antenna for you, whether it's a home satellite system, high-definition television (HDTV) or a traditional analog set.

Make sure you antenna is pointed toward Shoreview, where FOX 9 transmits from.

NO HDTV


There are many variables here that could cause the problem. I can receive a few local HD channels ( within about 60 miles ) on my 57H94. I am not aware of any "HD specific" settings- it's all part of the receiving circuits in the TV. The first thing I would look at is to be sure you have a secure antenna connection. Then be sure you have selected the correct antenna input on the TV (there are two). HD channels, as an example will show up as 10-1, 10-2, etc. Most TVs have different sensitivity thresholds, regardless of size. Usually digital signals, including HD, are either there or not. In most cases if a TV picks up a decent analogue signal, a digital set should receive the digital signal, including available HD channels, as well. If you are going to use an antenna, rather than cable or satellite, try to get the best antenna you can afford, that will meet your physical requirements ( indoor / outdoor,etc.). Keep in mind that not all digital TV signal are HD. All of our local stations in this area transmit a digital signal, but true HD broadcasts remain variable. I hope this has helped in some way-Good Luck!

DTV connection


Have you tried http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx? This will show you the location of the HD broadcast towers for your local stations and my recommendation would be to use an outdoor antenna if you can. Picking up the reception is definitely about pointing the antenna in the direction of the towers.

Get HD Signals but it Says Channels not available


you might have to look for "hidden" hd channels.

most cable companies are broadcasting the local stations unencrypted, so you should be able to receive them and sometimes a few other "basic" hd channels like discovery or tnt.

try googling your cable system, city and hd channels to see if someone has posted a list of channels (eg, 88-1 or 102-1)

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
