I have a JVC tv model AV 27495. I hooked it to the cable with the cable cord. I can only get cable 2 channel. I can't access any channels. What do I need to hook into the cable? Do I need a box since...


Yes, with the Direct TV box it did all the tuning and your TV had only to be on one channel, normally ch 3 or ch 4. Now that it is not there any more your TV tuner must do the work. You now will have to tell the TV to search for channels. Use your remote and TV menu to do this. You will be able when the search is complete to see some of the cable channels but other premium cable channels you won't be able to see without a cable box.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Philips flat tv. Can't get it to hook up to dish network. The room where the tv is there isn't a dish box. We have to watch what is on in the other room. It only has one coax cable to hook up. Don't know...


I should be channel 3 or 4. This assumes that this coax cable is coming out as a TV R.F. connection of a Dish Network Box (Satellite Receiver) intended for direct connection to an old fashioned NTSC (channels 2-13, 14-83, possibly even has cable channels depending on how old?) TV.

If this coax is the output of a coax going directly to the Satellite Dish or through what might might look to you like some kind of fancy splitter (called a Multi-Switch) the you WOULD NOT want to hook that to your old NTSC tv. The frequency is too high ... etc. etc... you would need Dish Box (as you call it) a.k.a. a Satellite receiver - with a good and active satellite card from your provider.

I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

I was given this tv I need to connect cable


your t.v will hook up directly to cable. if you are asking how to hook to a digital box then you can hook it up the same as you had it hooked on your previous t.v. but if you want to get high def channels then you are going to have to take your digital box back to Time Warner and swap it for a high def digital box. or you can just call Time Warner and have a technician go to your house and swap/ hook things up for you. Hope this helps you.

Initial set up w/directv


First, I hope you got an extended warranty with that. Otherwise it's a disposable T.V. after your warranty is up.NO PARTS are available. Hope it lasts more than a year..if your lucky. You need to change the channels on the direct tv box. Don't scan the t.v. You need the t.v. on channel 3 or video input that the box is connected to. Do you have hdmi cables? How did you hook the box to the T.V.? Did you read your book that came with the T.V. about hooking it up with a cable box??? Same thing as Direct T.V. box. That should show exactly how to connect. More info will help dtermind your problem.

VCR tuner cannot tune in my cable channels


It is working as designed. The purpose of your cable box is to take in a wire containing all of the possible channels you might watch, and then extract *one* channel, and force it to appear as channel 3. If you connect the cable directly to the VCR, then the VCR's "tuner" (ie, channel selector) has an opportunity to extract any channel it wants. But... as you point out, your VCR won't be able to "see" any of the digital channels. So... if your goal is to be able to watch any of the digital channels, the signal must pass through your cable box, which will put the selected channel on channel 3. There is no value in going from the VCR to the cable box, since the VCR's tuner will have already filtered out all but one channel. It would be helpful to make a list of what your useage goals really are, since there are so many different ways to hook these things up. Are you interested in: - watching digital channels? - recording digital channels? - watching one channel while recording another? - using higher quality video signals (composite, s-video, component, etc) rather than RF (ie, channel 3) And so on. Keep in mind that you have *three* tuners: Your cable box, your VCR, and your TV. It sounds like only your cable box can tune in the digital channels. If your cable box puts out any non-RF signal, then the best choice would be to go: Coaxial Wire -> Cable Box -> Video Connection -> VCR -> Video Connection -> TV, with the VCR and the TV both set to "video". Then you would only use the cable box as a tuner, the VCR would only see the tuned channel (via video in), and the TV would see the same channel (or whatever tape you are playing) on its video input.
