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

I brought a newer 52" hitachi ultravishion television from my freind. I do not have cabel but i do have a large roof top antenna that gets all the stations on other televisions. but when i plug the antenna into the back of the hitachi it will only get the stations between chanels 2-11. i have tried to run the anteenna through the vcr but the same conclusions of only getting reception for 2-11 occurs again. i have also brought a new rabit ear antena with boost and gain and hd reception but the only channels it receives is 2-11 thankyou danny

Re: antenna problem for chanels 13-66 on uhf for newer...

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.

RCA HDTV antenna is it Ok on a non HDTV

Yes, this antenna will receive VHF and UHF signals. If you install it properly outside and point it towards your local transmitters, it will work nicely (use for the directions to your transmitters). The "HD" label is something of a marketing gimmick; the tuner on the TV will pull in the signal and interpret ito display on your TV.

However, make sure that you have an ATSC tuner for your TV. Only a few low power NTSC stations are still broadcasting.

I hope this helps.

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, 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.

Is the rca true flat tv able to be used by putting up an antena -or will we need a convertor box ? currently we have direct tv and are thinking about canceling it and use an antena.

This model does not have a built in HD tuner (ATSC Tuner). You would need an HD antenna (that is a more recent antenna that receives UHF) and an HD converter box to get the newly broadcast HD signals.

Message on screen

OTA stands for "over the air"and for a std TV it is searching for VHF/UHF signals as beamed from satellite. If the antennae is properly mounted and connection don't have any sulpher deposits, then the tuner has to be replaced. As far as the antennae, the basiscs are:
Based on this information, you need an antenna that receives high vhf and uhf. KVIE (ch 9, PBS) and KXTV (ch 10, ABC) are high vhf and not receivable with the CM 4220. I would recommend the Winegard 7694 or HBU-22 antennas. The Winegard has higher gain and is a 5 inches shorter than the HBU-22. Shorter boom length and higher gain will come in handy with an attic install. However, 7694 is more expensive ($60 vs ~$40).........................................sodeep

Since Texas went digital I am only getting some of the digital chanels. I have changed it to digital programming but they are not all coming through. What do I need to do?

we need more information:

1) Your city in Texas; so I can look up the stations and find what frequency's they are broadcasting their DTV on.

2) What kind of antenna do you have ?
VHF ? UHF ? Inside ? On the Roof ?

A couple things you can try:

- instead of having the TV AutoScan for channels, manually enter the channel for the TV stations not being received.

- call the TV station you're having trouble receiving: they will ask you where live, what kind of antenna you have etc..

but you really should have a 'roof mounted' antenna that is matched to youre reception needs.

Converter Box Problem

What type of antenna are you adjusting? If it is not a UHF then you will have to try another such as a Smart Antenna or one from Wal-Mart for digital TV.

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.

Antenna on RCA F27615

If this set has Guide Plus in the menus then set it up. Choose ant or cable, in menus, and No for cable box and no for DVD and no for vcr and finish. If you choose yes for a cable box then it locks the channel to 3 to match your cable box.

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!

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.
