Just because you got lots more channels with the old analog broadcasts, it doesn't mean you can get that many with digital. With analog, you could get a watchable picture from a distant station even if it was weak. It just meant the picture might be a little snowy or fuzzy. It's a lot different with digital.

Digital reception is pretty much "all or nothing". That means either you get the channel or you get a "no signal" message. If the signal from the antenna is too weak, unlike the analog fuzzy picture there is nothing at all.

10 channels isn't a bad number, by the way. A lot of people are finding they get far fewer than that, even no channels at all. It all depends on your distance and direction from the station. If you go to www.antennaweb.org and click on "choose an antenna", they can help you determine what stations are on the air around your area, how far away they are, and what type of antenna would be required.

The "best" antenna is the one that gets the strongest signal from the most stations. For your specific location, this might be as simple as amplified rabbit-ears. Or it might mean a large rooftop antenna that you can turn to point right at the station. That option may not be available to an apartment dweller. You might just already have the best you'll get if you're getting 10 channels already.

1) tight the springs contacts batteries with pliers, for better contacts.
2) clean the contacts batteries.
3) open the remote control and clean the Keypads from oxide, dust, and special spray contacts or alcohol.
4) Reset the code again, and try it. if the problem persist, go to the repair shop TV for fix it.
God bless you

I want to tune in ALL free to air channels.At present all I have are 7,9,10 sbs abc


Sorry but not knowing how many there are around where you live and nothing else , we could only guess that you need a better antenna , Located much higher in the air than what you have ,try a search on Google for omnidirectional antenna's and get the best one you can afford.

I connected my 42' to a antena when i serch channel didn't get any signal


Depending where you live, you may not be able to pick up a signal. I just completed an install where the cleint did not subscribe to cable, thus wanting to use an antenna. Just using the antenna did not work. We added a booster and a 20' mast for the antenna and he still only received a few stations. Also if you live further than 50 miles from a tower and have obstructions, you will get little to no signal. Just for assurance, from the tv remote you should have a options in the menu. You should be looking for "connection" with a selection of "cable", or "air". Once you select "air" it should do an auto search for all stations and/or signals. If you simply did a plug and play, it may not work.

How do we get more radio stations from our Bose ???? We live in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, B.C. + would like to get stations from Vancouver, not just the local stations in Campbell River


Have you tried connecting an external antenna to the radio ? There should be a connection for an FM and an AM antenna at the back of the
radio.

Got a new tv antenna installed the other day, rescanned the channels and can't get Channel 10 in Sydney, Ingleburn (yes, we do have television in Ingleburn)! Also, it rained on the weekend and ABC dropped...


With all antennas you MUST ensure that it is all OK, physically check, there are no whiskers of braid caught between Inner & Shield, Make sure the center pin IS contacting in the socket. Check The connections at the Antenna end. Check the earth braid. If you can check continuity with a meter, check for "Shorts" between braid & center conductor. make sure it is Pointed at the Transponder... even a little off will give signal loss. rain fade is a huge problem unfortunately.

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

When auto tuning my LG LST-5403P dvr I can not get the ABC channels. It worked correctly until my wife decided to go thru the auto tuning process!!! The missing channels can be picked up at the TV but not...


Hello,

The ABC channels arrive on a different Harmonic than Analog signals; specifically the third Harmonic. When you auto tuned, the auto tune chip looks for stron analog channels on the first harmonic and any other strong signals. However the LG model is notably poor at capturing 3rd Harmonic signals.

Harmonics are different frequencies where the same signal can be captured. Making this overly simplified: a frequency multiplied by 2 is a harmonic and that multiplied by 2 is also of the same harmonic; inversely dividing by 2 and 2 gain and so on finds harmonics down in light wave frequencies.

You may be able to manually tune these ABC frequency channels manually (I do not know, as I live in the US and have no direct experience with this) and then add them in one by one. But, using the Auto Tune feature again will wipe those out. The same thing happens to other weak signals, which harmonic is actually (its on an offset carrier wave).

I just read of a man who built an improved antenna and put this in his attic and received ABC channels quit well. A decent understanding of Antenna physics is required, but it only took up 1.5m wide by .8m (sic) long. In a nutshell he improved his basic antenna by building his own more sophisticated antenna.

Shopping around and asking in the shops should get you an antenna add on that will work for you.

As I stated before I live in the US, and we don't have this, but I and others here at fixya have various experience in amateur radio.

I will ask a friend of mine who lives in Australia to confer with me on this problem of yours so he can add some value to our response to you.

Regards,
Worldvet

Lost ba channel


if You have cable maybe you have a bad line
but if you just have an over the antenna lots of station are switching to digital early so maybe your station is not brodcasting analog then you would have to buy a Digital Converter Box

Don't get ABC or NBC local channels anymore


ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.

Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.

When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.
