Hook rabbit ears to a vizio tv


Weak signal? Try introducing a known working video source and see if set works. If so, try hooking up an antenna amp to the rabbit ears. If that gets some results you need to either get cable or a good outdoor aerial.

TV picture freezing


digital signals do not fade out and get snowy like signals used to do ... if the signal gets too weak then it just freezes .. you might say its either perfect or frozen .. sometimes it gets blocky .. where some sections of the screen freeze while other sections continue .. what that means if you are using an antenna is .. you need a better antenna or better aim for the one you have .. outside is much better than inside but just rabbit ears are ok for strong signal areas .. you can aim the antenna based on a signal strength meter usually provided in HD receivers in the setup menu .. you can also get an antenna map from "www.antennaweb.org" .. that will show you what direction to point the thing for each channel and how strong each channel should be ... if you are using Cable instead of an antenna then you should have good signal strength but there is a problem called "Crest Factor" .. that becomes an issue when they put too many signals on a given cable .. the cable handles it ok as long as there is no damage (bad ends, water inside, animal chews, corrosion) but the cable box or receiver may be overloaded as thousands of signals drift in and out of phase ... thats a cable company problem that might be getting worse as more channels are added .. the results are that periodically the picture will freeze or pixelate .. you probably have to accept a little of that but more than a little gets really irritating ....off the air reception with an inside antenna (like rabbit ears) you will find that moving around the room can effect the signal for channels in the UHF range (most are) .. aiming the antenna and getting it as high as possible will minimize that problem.. make sure whatever antenna you use is designed for UHF as well as VHF .. the little circle often found between the two "rabbit ears" is actually the UHF part of the antenna .. it can be rotated for UHF channels while the big ears are aimed and adjusted for VHF .. antennaweb.org will tell you which is UHF and VHF ..

Digital Converter connection with old Rabbit Ears TV


First, make sure your connections are right. The rabbit ears need to be disconnected from the TV and reconnected to the converter box. Then the output cable from the converter box connects to the TV. Then try turning the rabbit ears or re-locating them near a window if the wire is long enough. You should be able to get some signal. A newer indoor antenna may help you pull in some of the weaker stations.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get...


You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.
