No Signal when using the Digital TV input on Vizio L37 HDTV

I used to use a setop box with my Vizio L37 and connect HDMI from the setop to the Vizio. That worked great. I am now trying to use just the DTV input which is Coax (labeled DTV - Digital ANT./Cable) and connect directly to the cable coming from the wall. When I do this I get "No Signal". I'm pretty sure I had scanned for channels at some point in the past and it worked fine. I try scanning via the (auto) option and it doesn't pick up any channels and it receives a scan error 50% through the scanning process. I do set the input to "DTV". I connected another hdtv up via its digital tv input and that tv receives channels/signals just fine from that same coax cable outlet.

Try plugging in a powered antenna.  
The DTV coax input is for over-the-air HDTV transmissions which vary depending on your location and surrounding buildings.  I have the LCT32HA36 hooked up to a powered antenna and it works fine, but it wouldn't work when I plugged in the cable from the wall.

SOURCE: No digital signal search

Check your manual to see if it has 2 tuners, digital and analog. If it doesn't have a digital tuner, you will need a converter box.

Hdmi cables input 1,2,3,4 which input goes to the tuner, direct tv box, blue ray on vizio E550i-AO


The choice is entirely arbitrary. You may connect any accessory to any HDMI input. I recommend you connect the device you use most (probably your direct TV box) to HDMI 1, your second most frequently used device to HDMI 2, and so on, but it's really a question of your own preferences.

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK

Connected to my HDTV cable box via HMDI cable, I get" No signal". I must use coax cable?????


You have to go into the cable box menu and designate HDMI as your output to your TV. Consult your manual for your box as there are quite a few different ones on the market. If you don't have manual, very easy to find online. Good luck.

Our 42" Vizio will not display/play sounds when


Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

Can't get HD channels selected on tv. Tried auto search with HDTV port connected and the menu selected to HDTV


Hello, the HDTV input is what you would use if you were not using a cable box.
You should connect your cable from the wall to coaxial input on the cable box, and connect an hdmi cable from the hdmi output on the cable box to the hdmi 1 input on your tv and then switch the tv to that input.

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input


When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

Vizio hd L37 tv not showing a clear picture


what type of input and device are you using? what type of connection? HDMI, Component, AV? DVD player, VCR, Cable/Satellite? Using HDMI will give you the best picture and sound. Best way to test is with a blueray or DVD player using HDMI input. If your picture is still bad, change the main board.

Connecting an LCD TV to a computer to use as TV and Comp. Monitor.


Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.
