Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Ferguson F2206LVD2 which I was watching via a satellite box. I have now bought a DIGIDOME AERIAL which I want to use directly through the tv but am getting no signal and think I need to retune the channels through this aerial but cannot do it! Any help would be appreciated. Roger

it's the aerial, tv has nothing to do with channels. it's the signal that carries the channels. i'm pretty sure if you had it hooked up to a cable box, you'll get all the channels, so i'm sure your tv is fine. i would double check on the aerial and positioning the attenna has some factor into it.

SOURCE: Hi I have two freeview

Hi,

The problem you describe is called "Digital Cliff Edge" and it's caused by signal loss. I wont go into the specifics of that at the moment as it's not going to help solve your problem. I you want more information about DCE, try an internet search.

As you are using the same aerial and booster/splitter for both TVs, you are correct in ruling these out as the cause of the problem. The fault is probably in the co-ax cables or connections but you might have a faulty freeview box. Please run through the following checks to establish the source of the fault.

1. Swap your Freeview Boxes - you shouldn't need to re-scan/tune as they are running off the same aerial..
If the Freeview box from the TV that is working correctly freezes and stutters on the other TV, the fault is probably in the cables or cable connections. Next, try the "faulty" Freeview box on the TV that is working correctly. If you get stuttering sound and freezing/pixellation you probably have a faulty Freeview box. DO NOT SWAP ANY CABLES FOR THIS TEST.

If the problem is the same after swapping the freeview boxes:

2. Swap any non-fixed cables, e.g the co-axial "fly-leads" and scart cables - one at a time. See if the fault "moves" with the swapped cables. "Fly leads" are the short co-ax cables that link the Freeview box to the TV or the TV to a wall mounted aerial socket. If the fault "moves" with the swapped cable, you have identified the source of the fault and should either repair or replace this cable.

Try these tests first and post back with the results. If you haven't identified the source of the fault, I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

SOURCE: Hannspree TV tuning from aerial problem.

do you mean if you hooked up the tv with the aerial antenna can not get any channel? ok if just a white raster only and doesn't scan or tuned even manually and auto search, the cause is bad tuner.

How do I get freeview on Sony bravia TV 42w815bsu 42"


If this model number is what I am seeing then it has an aerial socket so needs an aerial and then setup to tune it in, perhaps you do not have or allowed an aerial then its broadband and one of the companies that have TV feeds.
If its not what I think and an analogue thing then you need a "box" to do this feeding a video audio signal via another cable.
Without more info hard to give any other advice.........

You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

Toshiba 46bl702b How To Setup


To watch anything on the Tv it needs a signal source, which is either via an aerial or a broadband service provider like Cable network like Time Warner or Satellite dish or even fiber optic service provider like Verizon.You cannot use your TV without these signals. So you do need an aerial to be connected to the TV.

Will not connect to tv channel


  • Connect the existing Aerial/Cable TV
    signal (or from the Cable Box/Satellite
    Receiver {RF OUT or TO TV}) to the
    ANTENNA-IN socket on the
    recorder.

  • Use the supplied RF coaxial cable to
connect TV-OUT socket on the
recorder to the aerial input socket on
your TV (VHF/UHF RF IN).

Helpful Hint:
- Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air aerial or Cable box or VCR), you will
have to disconnect some of the cables before
you make the above connection.

If you want to watch Freeview, then you need an aerial, preferably a proper external (or loft mounted) one. Freeview signals are far weaker than traditional tv signals and so trying to receive them without an aerial or via a tv set-top aerial is usually doomed to failure. If you must use a set-top aerial then connect it directly to the tv (not via a video or any other device) and avoid using "amplified" or "booster" aerials unless you have no other choice.

I'm unfamiliar with Vistron, but usually channels are added by going into the menu and looking for "installation" or "set up". But if you have no aerial then you aren't going to get very far.

My Transonic LCD tv was connected to the aerial via my video recorder which is now out of order. I connected the aerial directly to the TV but now only get black & white! The DVD channel etc are...


Ok, if all you did was remove the vcr out of the circuit and put the aerial directly to the tv and now the color will not come in. That means your signal is not strong enough to provide a good picture. Some new model tvs have weaker tuners compared to older model tv and vcr tuners causing them to have weak snowy or black and white picture. The idea being most newer tvs are designed for cable or satellite hd use not for aerial use. What you wear doing before was amplifying the signal by running it thru the vrc first then viewing the output on the tv. Get another vcr or amplify the signal with an signal amplifier.

How to connect a vcr for recording programs


1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)
