Have a Sony 19" LCD HDTV (KLV-S19A10) with analog tuner. The rf input for VHF/UHF yields a decent picture but the audio is distorting, crackling and yields a low volume output. There's a reason I'm using this input which I will not bore you with.
I have troubleshot with other cables and TVs.
On my old Sony crts, there is an internal service menu of additional settings that you access via the remote control.
Does anyone know if the same exists for this model?
If "yes", can you list the steps needed to access these settings?
If "no", do you think adding a 3, 6 or 10 db attenuator may correct the audio problem?
Or lastly, do you think that is this an internal problem on the circuit board?

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.
If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.
Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna anda broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.
This isn't an answer to your problem, but I just wanted to point out that your continuity tester may be misleading you. Cable inputs often have transformers on their contacts, both for impedance matching and to help isolate sensitive electronics. Those transformers are usually just a couple of turns around a very small iron core, and while they may look like a standard 75 ohms at VHF and UHF frequencies, they will look like dead shorts to a DVM or continuity tester.
Regarding your digital channels, I was somewhat surprised to discover that modern digital TV transmissions use the same VHF and UHF bands older analog TV did. And if the cable signal is poor for any number of reasons, it will still mess up the picture. Only now, instead of snow in the picture, you get weird pixelation that can resemble some kind of acid trip. If you're using an antenna, you may have to check it, its cable, and any new structures or structure changes in the area. If the signal comes in from a cable provider, you might have to get them to come and test your levels.
This device has 2 composite AV, 1 S-Video, 1 Firewire, 1 RF video inputs. The RF input is a way for it to accept a signal from say a VCR's or Video Game's output on Ch 3 or 4.
Your device also can record via internal tuner.. The tuner can tune VHF:2-13, Cable:1-125 and UHF:14-69. Unfortunately, if you only have a UHF / VHF antenna on your house for TV (do not have cable TV, satellite TV, or the like) you're not going to be able to find anything due to the change from analog TV to digital TV. For this, you would need to purchase a digital TV converter box, and put the output of it into the the DVDR3320V.
I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.
antennas are not analog or digital, just VHF, UHF and they typically connect to a RF coaxial jack on the TVs rear panel. 75ohm silver round jack. Select in your TVs menus, AIR when you want over-the-air TV stations and do a new channel scan to pick up local channels.
You can program to regular (analog) antenna channels. To do so you must use the original remote which has a TV/DTV switch in the top right corner of the remote. Choose the appropriate mode for the type of channel you want to see or scan for. Here is a link to the owners manual and a picture of the remote swithc. The info on the signal switching is on pg.13. http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/funai/cr130dr8.html?idRes=707655
The HDTV tuner is out. Analog tuner, and video inputs work fine.
