What antenna works on Toshiba 20VL43U? I purchased Mediasonic Homeworx HW110AN Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range.

I recently went through a whole song & dance about HDTV antennas for my RV. I bought two different directional high-gain antennas, only to find that they wouldn't even receive signals at my home! When I'd reorient the antenna and initiate another channel search, I would sometimes get ONE or TWO channels... then I'd lose them when I'd try to reorient the antenna.
What I figured out is that DIRECTIONAL HDTV ANTENNAS ARE, ESSENTIALLY, WORTHLESS. There is really no way of knowing precisely which direction the broadcast towers are and, even if you knew, they will not all usually be clustered in one small area... they may be scattered here & there around your area.
What I eventually did is bought an OMNIDIRECTIONAL HIGH GAIN ANTENNA, which was no more expensive than the DIRECTIONAL antennas I tried. Did a channel search, and got almost all of the channels in my area!
Any omnidirectional HDTV antenna will work with your television, but I'd recommend buying the one with the highest GAIN (expressed in "dB" or "dBi" with the highest number being best). Try to find a POWERED antenna with an internal SIGNAL AMPLIFIER.
Also, if you live far away from broadcast towers as I do, you may wish to consider adding an additional SIGNAL AMPLIFIER as well.

We have an antenna. Can't get Ch 3 on this tv to use our vcr/cd.

If you did a channel scan to build the channel list, the up/down channel will never bring you to 03, but you should be able to manually add the channel through the on screen menu system.
Alternately, simply punching in 03 (or 003) on the remote should force the TV to tune in channel 3.
Be sure the vcr is tuned to channel 3 as well, some are 3/4 switchable and default to channel 4 not 3.
A last resort if you can't get any of those to work is to get a cable splitter and run it in reverse with the 2 ended side going to the antenna and vcr and the single side going to the TV and doing another channel scan while the vcr is playing.

If none of these work, I'd need to know more about exactly how everything is hooked up.
ie - if the VCR is hooked into the component input on the TV, you need to switch the TV to A/V or composite or component rather than channel 3 etc. etc.

Exactly as you have done is fine all you need to do now is play the tape, (so you know what to look for when it is displayed on the screen), decide which channel you want to view the vVCR through, say 9, select the channel and set the TV to search tune on that channel. Store it when your taped programme appears.
Alternatively, have the set up as you have described and press auto install. That will retune the whole of the TV and include the VCR.
Hope this helps.

Trying to hookup vhs analog player to hd proscan

your toshiba player should have output composite video and audio which are color coded Yellow for video, red and white for audio same goes for proscan hdtv. connect between the two keeping in mind color of cables. If the toshiba player is really old you can connect the RF cable output to antenna input to the proscan tv and watch taped programs from the player on channel 3 of the proscan tv. If then you want to keep the hookup and still watch HDTV connect the antenna to the toshiba vcr and when you shut off the vcr you can now watch the hdtv channels as usual because now you are bypassing the antenna to the Proscan tv. Hope this Helps..

Everything on the TV works EXCEPT live TV.

Please clarify a few things. Are you using cable TV, satellite TV or a TV antenna? If cable, are you using a set top box (and is it powered on) or does the TV convert the cable info. If satellite, is the set top box powered on? If off the air (antenna TV), can the TV receive the new digital signals and if not, do you have a digital converter box between the antenna and the TV?

Playing vcr causes new digital tv to lose saved channels

Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.

Without the manual !!
1)VCR INPUT:: [Cable_antenna In] the coxial screws on from "output" of cable box or ( airwave )antenna.
2) VCR output:: connect another coxial into input of TV. You should be able to keep all the other wires connected from SONY theater system.
note:: your VCR has a switch for VCR\TV. When u have a VHS tape playing a movie & switch from VCR to TV, you will see the channel that is on the VCR not the cable box\ antenna input.
example:Cable channel is on Ch.122, & your TV must be set to Ch.3 to view cable.If your VCR is set to Ch/5 you may not see that Ch.122.You will still be able to see your VHS tape when u place the VCR\TV switch back to VCR.
I am going to share wt.u a $100,000,000.00 trick:put any ch.on cable box.Switch VCR\TV to TV,change channel ON VHS tuner.When u come to the [picture] that the cable box is on,Then that is the Ch.u can see cable ON the VHS.
U owe me!!
