Question about TruTech PVS2119 19 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

When connected to cable - sometimes snow on channels 14-21.

I am using this DVD/TV for my mother in law who is bedridden. Connected to Comcast Cable it has snow on channels 14-21, most of the time. The cable company checked and told us the power being received is where it should but it appears that the connector within the TV moves and it should be stationary. What should I do?

The RF Connector could be loose either because of bad solder connection or just that part of the tuner could be going bad in the TV. One fix or repair is too use a cable box to eliminate the tuner issue or borrow one for test, and or buy a inexpensive vcr and hook it to cable first then take the output out of vcr and run to tv tuner input. Or better yet, use Yellow ,Red, White cables (Composite video) and run it into respective inputs on TV if it has those inputs. Let me know if this solves your problem or at least gets you close. Thank you. And talk to you soon....Jay

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound

First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

If the facility is using just standard analog cable, it should be fine. Just turn the TV on and go through the setup menu and let the TV autoprogram itself to find and program into memory all active channels

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's

Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.
