Indoor antenna problem with Magnavox LCD TV Model 15MF605T/17

I need to receive over the air digital signals for my small tv in the kitchen. I have it hooked up to a digital/analog converter (dtv pal plus). When I have my rabbit ears hooked to the ''pal'' I can pick up two local stations but not very well so I decided to purchase an indoor antenna. I bought a Belkin PureAV indoor HDTV antenna w/booster. When I disconnect my rabbit ears and hook up the Belkin antenna and go through the setup, it finds no local stations.

In the Pal book it states ''Compability: The HDTV Antenna is specially designed for TVs with a built-in HDTV tuner or with set-top HDTV receiver. Does this mean I cannot use this antenna with the Pal and Magnavox tv? If I can't, what kind of indoor antenna can I buy to be able to pick up local stations. Thanks

I have found most of these indoor antennae to be ineffective and a waste of money, however, I do not know anything about this particular antennae. I to have a Dish DTVpal, which I love! It's ugly and probably won't fit in your kitchen, but the best solution is to make your own "bow-tie" antennae, mount it indoors or on the roof and run a cable to the kitchen. Directions can be found on You-Tube. I live in SE Idaho (Pocatello) and can get 13 channels, most without having to adjust the antennae.

Try to turn it on with a remote if one is available. If you don't have the original remote you can look up the universal code for the cable or satellite remote. Also try to turn it on with the input source(vcr,video game, cable box,etc...) on first. I have the same TV and if it has no signal prior to manual power up it will go to standby mode.

HDTV unable to get HD Channels w/ Antenna


The problem could be your antenna. Many people will buy small indoor tv antennas and wonder why they're not getting the signal that they want or the channels that they expect. Its not your fault. Digital signal is in two formats: UHF AND VHF. Some antennas only receive UHF. But many of the low band channels are VHF, so 1) you need an antenna that will receive those signals and 2) you need to know how and where to install that antenna and 3) you need to know if you need a signal amplifier depending on your coaxial cable length and number of connections. I recommend visiting dennys antenna service (no I don't work there and I have never purchased anything from that website. He just has an excellent informational article with a great deal of "how to" on his pages.). http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/2029710.html This should be of great help to you. Happy viewing =)

IS MY TV DIGITAL?


yes you will. either install an outside antenna or get a good amplified indoor antenna. try your old antenna first, but when your picture freezes or it says something like " weak signal " you will need that new antenna

Indoor antenna problems


I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.

As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.

Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.

Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.
