Trutech TV/DVD Combo can't get picture with digital signal

I have the Trutech PLV31199S1 and I was trying to get it connected now that we've switched over to digital but none of the rabbit ears I have work. I get a frozen, glitchy picture and not much or no audio. I wanted to make sure that this model does have a Digital Tuner, I'm assuming it does since I am getting some picture and when I look on the menu it says DTV Signal is bad, but I wanted to make sure. And I was wondering if anyone had any possible solutions.

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.

It does have a tuner built into it.

It is not a hd or digital tuner.

SOURCE: digital tuner

I don't have this unit, but guessing from it's description on Amazon.com, I'd figure that it is analog-only. So you would need a converter.

Here's the thing: all U.S. broadcasters are transmitting the new DTV signals NOW - in addition to the old analog signals. If a TV has a digital tuner, you should be able to use it now to see those DTV signals. Check your setup menu for options like ATSC.
One hint, the new signals use channel designations like 7.1 or 7-1 or 7-1HD. And some stations will have virtual channels, i.e., 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. If you can't get your TV to scan channels and show the numbers in that fashion, it isn't using a digital tuner.

I need the code for programming a universal remote for TruTech 19" TV/DVD serial nunber PLV31199S1


Use code search to find something that can handle some or all functions of your TruTech TV. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Please check if the antennae is connected with right cable and the dipole is good. If so search the channels avaiilable and if there is no signal then it is possible that the TUNER is faulty. check using another TV with the same antennae or check the RF input using a VCR or TUNER.

Trutech tv - no sound, but have picture


Check if you would have the same if you use a different signal source. Another DVD Player, a playstation or other AV devices. The source or the TV may not be understanding each other, one may be sending analog signals while TV is only recognizing digital.

Needs remote which remote is best for this unit


Any of the universal remotes should work.  Check their sites on line first to see if they have codes for your TV.  I recommend a Logitech Harmony remote that is "activity based" and can control all your electronics with a single remote.

Remote control switch destroyed


If you get an universal remote, you won't have all functions to control the TV. Moreover, the codes for many audiovox model are often not reported on universal remote manuals , therefore you may need to use autodetect feature on universal remote.

The best choice is buying a replacement original remote like the ones below:

New Original TruTech PLV31199S1 Remote Control

$39.95 -
