Hello igloo,i am nichu
ya this problem is common, although it is not a problem.what's hapenning is that your webcam's source or the channel is changed ,thats why whenever you switch on your webcam you see the tv in your webcam window .
hence to avoid this change the source of your webcam ,chose option other than the tv tuner i.e., the webcam one,which is in your webcam window it is there in your options tab,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,problem solved.

take care
bye and have a good day

If your TV has an On-screen Menu you should be able to access your Tuner controls. Run your auto channel scan and you should pick up your "regular channels". You may be able to de-select the odd channels and show only the ones you want to use.

check if your USB cable is properly plugged.
Also try connecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub

if your webcam's image is not sharp, check to see if it has a focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam is not in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve that problem.

Other picture quality problems with webcams can be addressed by changing the video capture properties for the webcam. Most programs that can use a webcam will have an option to access the properties of the video source, which will bring up the video capture properties window.

We can't get any of the channels don't know where to start from menu area


Hello

You just do autotune to receive all channels. In this mode TV will tune through the entire channel band automatically, and finally will stop tuneing, and will show the first channel receved. You must be patient for these time. about two or three minutes, without disturbing is process. The tuning process follows.

Auto Tuner Setup

In Auto Tuner Setup, the TV automatically scans

t h rough all available channels, memorizing the active

ones and skipping over blank ones or channels with

weak signals. This means when you scan (using the

CH A N N E L +/- b u t t o n s ) you will receive only clear,
active channels
P ress the ME N U b u t t o n
Press UP or DOWN buttonTo AUTO TUNER SETUP
Press Right or Left button to operate
Press Vol+ or Vol (--) to choose CABLE or AIR
Press UP or DOWN button to move to START
Press Right or Left Button to start Auto Tuner Setup

Tv will show "NOW PROGAMMING" display.
Programming will take approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
After all it will show
PROGRAMMING OVER

Some cable systems experience interference from radio frequencies on cable Channel 95. You may delete this channel from
your scan by removing the "X" next to it on the Channel Summary screen.

The tv is showing a double image and I cannot get the color right! Model number 50v500


Hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} You need to upgrade to the high definition cable box---but first try this. Hook the cable from the wall directly to the tv and autoprogram it. If Comcast is anything like charter they transmit the local Hd channels in a format that digital tuner will pick them up. Just channel up/down and check out the channels with -1 and -2's behind them. Depending on where you are----your local channels will usually show up wherever they normally do but with a -1 behind it.

EX: local Fox channel on 47---autoprogram and check 47-1

If this is enough HD for you then get a two way spitter and hook your box back up and keep using the RCA (composite) cables for the best it can produce.

hope this will help..

Tuner will not pick up cable box on channel 3, front and rear AV


In order for the TV to work with the cable box by using a piece of coax and tuning the TV to channel 3, you must make sure the TV is in "Cable" mode on the tuner and not "AIR or Antenna" the frequency maps are different between these types of service and channel 3 cable will not be the same as channel 3 on Air or UHF/VHF.

Often there is an auto program feature on TV's that will "scan" for all available channels, and this should select the proper input type.

Hope this helps!
