SOURCE: Recently installed two Philco TB100HH9

I just had a similar problem with this box - For the first month or two, I got the local NBC affiliate (KING-5 in Seattle) just fine on 5.1, then, after fiddling with my antenna setup, I lost it completely - NOTHING I could do would get it back. I tried a bunch of stuff - Multiple types of antenna, adding an antenna amp box, a handful of "homebrew" antennas - Nada. Yet all my other channels came in fine (although a couple were right on the edge - This box seems to need a "17" or higher on the signal strength - Some of my channels were reading in the 15-18 range, and suffering the "blockies" and sound dropout)

After hitting TVfool.com, found out that the KING digital signal is actually broadcasting on channel 48. Punched in 48.1, and there it was, clear as a bell, using nothing but a "wick" antenna (Basically, strip 4-1/4 inches of the outer braid off one end of a piece of co-ax cable, leaving the center wire alone, then plug the other end into the box) getting me a 23 signal strength. But a second or two later, the box is displaying "5.1" - Weirdness...

Reconnected a near top-of-the-line Winegard Yagi/Log-periodic antenna - VERY directional, and has some gain all by itself - and the signal jumped above 50.

Still couldn't "channel-up/channel-down" or punch in "5.1" to tune it, though - Channel 5.x was a "dead zone" as far as the box was concerned.

Re-did the "autoscan", and now, it's back to normal - I can channel-up/channel-down to it at 5.1, or I can punch it in as 5.1, or I can punch it in as 48.1, and it's all good.

So, try re-doing the auto-scan. Worked for me...

SOURCE: scrambled picture when cable box is hooked to hdtv plugs on philips 60 inch rear projection tv

I have had this problem in the past with Comcast. You need to go into the Power off menu (hit menu with the power off on the cable box) change the resolution to 1080I. Good luck.

SOURCE: HDTV Converter hookup with sat. and antenna

Hi there Phil...... this switch from analog to digital has lots of folks scratching their heads. Fortunately I have some great news for you. The signal coming from the Dish network does not need a converter as it is already digital.

Just bought a !9" digital flat screen Apex. Hooked it to an indoor HDTV antenna. All I can get is "NO SIGNAL". What do I try next?? Bob E, Technical Dunce over 80.


Bob, If you have an hd ready tv, and hooked up the Ant. then the next thing you should do is go to your menu and select the tv feature and then scan for channels. This should program the channels for you. Most TV setups are like this. You should have a option for cable or antenna/tv input. select Antenna. You r should be good to go once the channel scan is done.

Hope that helps

How do I hook an antenna to my tv


Hi Dwayne,

The Proton has an NTSC analog tuner and also an ATSC digital tuner. Have you tried switching or changing the SOURCE inputs?
You may also have to use the scan button to have the tuner "find" the channels for you once you determine that you have selected the correct source for the antenna.
See page 9 of the manual.

How to program hd antenna


Basically none - just screw in to the input. There is no "programming" to be done on a basic indoor antenna.

I just purchased an indoor antenna for to view local stations. Can i use an indoor antenna for my olevia 232-t11 lcd-hdtv? If I can, what steps do I need to follow?


Yes you can use an indoor antenna. Just make sure it is an HD antenna to get the digital channels clearly. You will have to do a scan to pick up local channels. In the TV menu, it will ask you if you want to scan for "cable" channels or "antenna" channels. You want to choose antenna.

How do i hook up an antenna to a samsung tv model no. cxj1952


If the set only has a coax cable fitting and you have a antenna with flat wire--you need the adapter that takes the flat wire and slides onto the coax fitting.

Once done in the menu you have to set the set to cable and operate the auto program etc.

Can not pick up channels with an indoor antenna


You might have to try another antenna. Buying an indoor antenna can be hit or miss so it might take a couple tries to get the right one. In the mean time go to your menu on the T.V. go to channel set up and program the channels using air and see if that helps.

Indoor antenna problem with Magnavox LCD TV Model 15MF605T/17


I have found most of these indoor antennae to be ineffective and a waste of money, however, I do not know anything about this particular antennae. I to have a Dish DTVpal, which I love! It's ugly and probably won't fit in your kitchen, but the best solution is to make your own "bow-tie" antennae, mount it indoors or on the roof and run a cable to the kitchen. Directions can be found on You-Tube. I live in SE Idaho (Pocatello) and can get 13 channels, most without having to adjust the antennae.
