Question about JVC HD-52G886 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No OTA channels

I have a OTA HD antenna that works fine on different TV's and on my satellite reciever, but when connected to the ATSC on the JVC tv; it cant find a single channel. On the other TV's there is at least 10 channels, sometimes more. Is there someway to fix my JVC TV?

This television has an extremely weak tuner. It is very sensitive to both ghosting (multipath) and weak signal conditions, which cause it's digital decoder to "error out". Coupled with this is the decoder's long set-up time (time to actually begin a decoded video stream after signal is selected)and you find that every time the decoder loses sync it takes several seconds to reestablish normal decoding. The net result is the possiblity that the tuner will be continually restarting and never display anything. An extremely directional antenna may help. Otherwise, find a good external tuner box and use that.

Fujitsu P42xta51: Does my fujitsu have ATSC tuning


Yes, the P42XTA51U has an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. This is given in the specifications for the Fujitsu 51 Series TVs. That document is available here: http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/Fujitsu-P63XTA51US.htm . The direct link to the specifications sheet is http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/pdf/ht_tuner_brochure.pdf . Fujitsu had to include an ATSC tuner because the TV was manufactured in 2005. U.S. law required TVs over 36" have an ATSC tuner starting in 2005.

If you use the appropriate antenna, you'll be able to watch OTA broadcasts. I recommend checking with TVfool.com for antenna suggestions and the angle between your location and the transmitters. ( antennaweb.org assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the list of available stations.)

I hope this helps.

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working


My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

I don't have signal on my tv and there are no program's to watch as they are all blank. Is just a brand new tv I bought like 2 days ago


What make and model of TV do you have? What is your signal source (OTA (indoor or outdoor antenna), cable, satellite)? How is the TV connected to the source?

The model is important since some "TVs" are actually only monitors and do not have tuners. Then you need to connect to a set top box to watch anything.

Assuming the TV has an ATSC (digital) tuner for OTA, check that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction for the stations in your area. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the direction. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and gives a very conservative list of stations. TVfool tells you the type of antenna needed to get any station (assuming no trees or tall buildings that might block the signal). Depending on your TV, you will need to enter the menu in order to correctly set the incoming signal type and scan for channels. Digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or not available. If your signal is split between several TVs you may need an amplifier to get enough signal. Sometimes, the amplifier may fail and filter out all stations in certain frequencies. (Older TVs often only had a NTSC tuner; there are very few NTSC stations still broadcasting. They are low-power and thus you may not be able to watch them if they are far away.)

If you have cable without a box, which type of cable signal is coming in? Digital cable is QAM and not all TVs have a clearQAM tuner (that reads the unencrypted signal).

If you are using a set top box, make sure to set the TV to the correct input (HDMI, component video, composite video, coax and the correct number if there are multiple inputs). Make sure that the box is also on. If the set top box requires the TV to be set to a specific channel (3,4,60), make sure to go to that channel.

I hope this helps.

(For the US, the digital OTA tuner is ATSC and QAM for cable. In other countries, different signal formats are used.)

Tried to hook up a HD antenna but it won't work


HD is pretty critical and if a indoor antenna do not expect much or anything for that matter.

Not able to scan for digital OTA channels on a JVC LT-32X667 LCD


Seeing as it does not have a digital tuner in it, I would think this would be the problem, you will have to get a box for it.

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

I don't know how a program it, since you change digital.


So far as I know the HLN series does not have an ATSC tuner, thus no over the air (OTA) reception. You can probably still get a $40 coupon for an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter. Note that will NOT get you high definition (HD). With Dish you can get HD receivers that do get OTA ATSC both HD and SD. With Direct, no OTA AFAIK. With cable you would need a QAM tuner, not in your TV AFAIK to get clear channels as required for locals. Otherwise cable needs a Set Top Box for digital and scrambled channels although the standard definition (SD) non-scrambled channels work with your NTSC tuner. Too bad there seem to be no ATSC to 5-cable RCA or HDMI HD converters except Dish. -Ken

I have a Trutech PVS31170S1W LCD Tv,do i need a converter box?


Your tv is DTV ready, it has both an ATSC and NTSC tumer. You can recieve analog and digital OTA (over the air) signals.
You will need to connect an antenna and set the tuning band to AIR not CABLE..
I have provided a link with more information on DTV and Antenna's.
