If you changed the RF out channel setting on the DTV converter and now can't see the output of the converter try changing the channel on the TV set. THe DTV converter boxes are designed to output either RF channel 3 or RF channel 4. If you were on channel 3 and changed the converter output to channel 4, you will have to change the TV channel to channel 4 to see it again.

Hope this helps.

My box keeps saying boot. When I channel search, no channels appear. How do get channels to watch?


Plug the antenna into the ANT IN input of the STB. Forget about the RF IN output of the STB. Plug the 3-way output of the STB into the corresponding 3-way input on the rear panel of your LG TV.

2004 t.v& Magnavox dtv converter box.Should a/v wires be plugged in front or back? Should it be on cable or antenna? What channel? Auto,manual, or game?


The L. audio (R), R. audio (W) and video (Y) outputs from your Magnavox STB should be plugged into the corresponding inputs on the rear or front of your TV. Your 2004 TV may not have suitable inputs.

You also can connect the RF output of your STB to the antenna input of your TV and set it to channel 3 (or4) for but picture quality may not be as good.

Digital convertor


Do you mean the Samsung DVD-VR500E? The following steps should work for most DVD recorders. (In the US, you use the AV Input with an RCA composite cable or the RF input.)

If you get a digital-to-analog converter (set top box) and your current antenna provides the OTA signal at your location, then yes you will be able to record a digital program. Connect the set top box to AV1 or AV2 (the SCART inputs). Then use the Input Sel (under PR mode) to select the input. (Alternatively, connect an RF modulator to get the signal to the coax input from the STB to the recorder.) See page 75 of the manual for the DVD-500E for details on setting the input for recording: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200410/20041023105238671_00500A-VR300E-XEU-E-B.pdf . Some DVD recorders only record on the TV (coax) input. In that case, you will need a set-top box with a RF out or an RF modulator but you can still record the digital program.

A dual tuner set top box will let you watch one program and record another if both the TV and the recorder are connected to the STB. If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the incoming antenna signal to go to the set-top box and the TV. (Then you can also watch one program and record another.)

I prefer to use a switch instead of a splitter to reduce the signal loss. However, this forces me to record the program that I am currently watching. Since most of my recording is for time-shifting, this doesn't cause me a problem.

This site, http://www.ricability-digitaltv.org.uk/pages/products/stbs/stb_search_results.asp , has a list of reviews of set-top boxes for the UK. I know in the US, it is harder to find new converter boxes. However, they frequently show up in the used market as people replace their older TVs. This may apply in your region as well.

I hope this helps.

I have a 37LG505H-UB LG LCD TV and when I watch it, it all of a sudden starts scanning for channels on the RF input even though I have it hooked to HDMI on the STB. It won't stop and when I turn it of


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Remote says "blaster not responding".


Hi. If the blaster is not responding for your Harmony 900 remote, it could be caused by RF interference. Usually power cycling the blaster fixes this, but since that did not help I would look for sources of interference. This can be anything from an RF baby monitor, microwave oven, wireless Internet router, cordless phone, or any other RF device. If you have any of these things in the room where you use the blaster, try moving them out and testing it again.

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

pgh_pa_guy_13.jpg

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Tv turns on picture shows for 3 seconds then screen turns solid green. Sound is present even when screen is green.


I had the same problem on my Sharp LC-32SB24U Liquid Crystal TV. When I couldn't find any solutions on this site, I looked elsewhere on the internet. I found two credible leads.

First, supposedly, this is caused by a known problem with Verizon FIOS. Apparently, there's a problem that Verizon knows about that has to do with the signal between the Set Top Box (STB) and the TV, via the HDMI cable. Other posters on other sites said that the problem is more common with the 7100 series STB's and that the problem is not as rampant on the 6400 series STB's. (Mine is a 7200 series STB.) I have not called Verizon yet, but other posters said that Verizon just says that you'll have to use a set of basic red, yellow, and white cables, versus and HDMI cable, until Verizon gets the bugs out of the system.

The other credible lead revolves around unplugging the TV for two minutes and then plugging it back in. Simple.

Here's what I did, and it worked!
I unplugged the STB and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then, when I plugged the STB back in and powered itself back up, my problem was solved! (Before I did this, I tried just unplugging my HDMI cable to rely solely on my basic connector cables, but that didn't do anything for me.)

Good luck all!
