Re: After auto channel set up, how do you get to Channel...
Try pushing "03" on the remote. You can also edit the channel list manually, and add or delete any station you desire if the autoprogram does not work right. You really want to connect the DVD to the audio/video inputs (Does it even have an output that connects to the tuner?) anyway. Most DVD players, unless they also contain a VHS player, don't work the way you seem to think they do! Even if you have a machine that works through the tuner, you won't get the best picture or stereo sound unless you use your TV's A/V (or "Line In") plugs with a three section cable having three RCA plugs on each end, NOT the screw-on cable TV or antenna type connectors (RG-59) on a SINGLE very stiff coaxial cable. I am as confused by your question as you are! I don't suggest trying to brush your teeth with your TV either. :-)

where did you hooked up the connector wire coming from the dvd player, in the component input or at the RF jack of the tuner of the tv?. if you plug at the component input of the tv you will select AV1 or AV2 etc. in the settings. but if you hooked up into the RF jack you can select channel 3 in the tv but at this time you need to have manual tuned in the tv to get the signal coming from the dvd player or xbox.
1) Set your TV to channel 3. 2) Insert a pre-recorded tape into this unit. 3) Press the OUTPUT button on the DVD/VCR so that the VCR OUTPUT light is lit. • If noise appears on the TV screen, press the VCR/TV button on the remote control. 4) Press the PLAY button once. 5) After a few seconds, press the PLAY button on the DVD/VCR for 3 seconds. • The RF output channel will change to channel 3 from channel 4 and you will see a playback picture. • When a picture does not appear on the TV screen, repeat step . 6) Press the STOP button to stop playback.
If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner
Hi, Channel 3 or 4 might work for older TVs. Most new HDTV's have a mode setting in the menu. (Video 1 or 2 or 3) or (Component 1 or 2). On your remote you may have DVD button. Try all these suggestions, 1 of these will work. You can play with the remote too. Good luck.
If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder. If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder. To view or record a CATV channel:
Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.
Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.
There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.
"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.
1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.
2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.
3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.
4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.
5 Press SETUP to exit.
6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.
If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:
1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.
If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.
Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).
Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.
Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
The easiest will be to make sure that the cable box is on and sending out a signal to Channel 3 and auto-programming the set. Channel 3 is skipped because the last time it was auto-programmed, there was no signal on that channel.
If you look in the back of your manual under troubleshooting you will see this particular question addressed. In the beginning of setup you must designate wether the incoming signal is from an antenna or from cable. If you have to have a cable converter box then your TV must be on channel 3 or 4.
