Tv patterning I am watching one tv program but another program from another station is showing up as static in the current program. You can only make out big shapes and some writing because it is clear in some places and static in others. Cheers, Dannal

Re: tv patterning

Hi. What if any other devices eg dvd, vcr, do you have connected to the tv set. Is this just through roof antenna or is it through other device.

How do I watch a DVD with this tv. It seems like it is connected right but just showing static

Hi. By static, do you mean 'snow' image ? DVD players must be connected to AV inputs and selected as an AV signal, either by using the remote control, either using the local controls in the set itself. If you see, what you call static, means that your TV is on "a" channel without areal input. (antenna inputsignal).
You can use the local TV channel button (-), go all the way down below channel 1. There the AV inputs are located. Good luck.

Tv won't work

I downloaded this off of Wikipedia. You are not the only person having the problem with the switch to digital television. The complaints are nationwide. the old TV Guide Plus has gone away for many viewers and soon for all viewers as the transition to DTV gets nearer. If you are using an antenna be sure to get the digital converter. They are practically free with a government sponsored coupon.

Digital television
The new service, launched in the United States in 2006, is entirely digital, using the ATSC digital television standard. While this will significantly improve the service, older systems will no longer be able to download listings once analog shutdown is done in early 2009.
It should be noted that the Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP) within the ATSC standard already allows for each station to send out its own EPG information, and in the U.S. the FCC in fact requires stations to do so for OTA (but not cable, unless they are rebroadcasting an OTA station that provides the PSIP data). However, actual implementation is rather spotty, and usually very minimal -- stations often don't have full descriptions (or even correct information) on the current show, much less the next 3 hours required of them, or the 16 days worth of guide information that can be transmitted. Additionally, ATSC tuners are not required to even show the EPG, only the very limited information for the current show on the current channel.
While the TV Guide service also requires software in the TV or other device, and licensing fees or royalties to be paid to Gemstar TV Guide, it also offers a more complete solution for broadcast television, more like digital satellite or digital cable.

Hi Suezie,

The problem is most likely your SAP being turned On.

SAP was created for audio programing including translations into a 2nd language. On nearly all sets, the SAP being ON will essentially select an alternate audio stream and will de-select or mute the main audio from the channel your are viewing. However not all TV stations have SAP enabled.

I am the Chief Engineer of a TV station in Denver, CO. We are not using SAP so if you selected SAP while watching my station you would get noise or static. There would not be any audio there.

Go to the front panel of your TV and select the "MENU" function. Step through the menus to Audio features and De-select SAP or Enable your main audio and this should take care of the problem. Alternatively you might be able to unplug your set for a period of time and it would reset itself. I used to get calls from elderly viewers when the set wouldn't pick up the UHF TV stations anymore. These were always after a power failure and the set had defualted to factory settings,

Different set manufacturers use different menu schemes and withou a password feature, these menus are so simple a small child playing with those fascinating buttons can change them for you to something you really don't want.

Good luck and write back if you can't find it. The set manufacturer and model number would help me look up a menu tree for your TV set.

Thak you,
Bernarr Howell
