Re: reception of vhf/uhf channels

You did not mention which set you have, so look for a small switch (usually on the back of the set) or go into the menu and set the TV to the "broadcast" or "tv" mode. If the set is in the "cable" mode, you will not get any UHF channels above 13.

I have an rca G36705 and I just need to know if it has a digital tuner or if o need a converter box to hook an antenna to it?

Its inputs include "Composite" and "S-Video".

Itttkk Its *ANALOG* tuner has channel coverage:
VHF:2-13, UHF:14-69, Cable:1-125, VHF:2-13, UHF:14-69, Cable:1-125

So, you will need a digital tuner.

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.

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

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.

Hi there!

Assuming that you tried to tune stations onto the UHF bandwidth and received nothing,Commonly the tuner box is probably at fault and needs replacement. The VHF and UHF signals are split inside the tuner so if you receive VHF fine then UHF should as well unless faulty of course. Some circuits require an external IC to do the switching, but more on the older models. Regards and good luck, JUS004

No uhf with antannae

UHF channels are basically "line of sight" type signals. You need to be pretty near those UHF stations.
You need a Uhf or combination Uhf/ Vhf antenna to receive them - - Usually an out-door type.
Your TV needs to be set in the "antenna" mode to tune beyond channel 13 "air type" channels. Channel 14 is the first UHF channel if you're in the antenna mode. If you're in the "Cable" mode then channel 14 is a cable channel which is operating at a different frequency from UHF.
I hope this will help you!

Antenna problem for chanels 13-66 on uhf for newer hiatchi flat screen 52"

In the menu, the antenna setting needs to be changed from cable to antenna and then auto-programmed. The VHF/UHF section needs to be turned on. I'm not in my shop, but, I think in most Hitachi sets, this adjustment is in the "channel" portion of the menu. If you need more information, reply to this post and list the model and I will give better direction.

Channel set

Apparently your TV is set to the "standard TV" position. Before you auto program your set, set it to the cable mode and then do the autoprogramming. In the standard TV setting, you just get off the air channels 2-13 vhf and 14-83 uhf.where as in the cable mode you get vhf channels 2-13 plus your cable channels. Stargazer
