Re: TV Tuning on ALBA TV with DVD player
Make sure in TV mode, press Menu button, use left arrow key to go to "Program Table" (NOT "install") and press blue button for "APS" (auto program search) This was for the LCD22ADVD but may work for others such as Akura and Beko. No part number on the remote.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The reason probably is because all broadcast TV is digital, and the em-55 tuner is set for analog channels. It cannot receive today's broadcasts "thru the air" because channel 2 for example is not broadcast, rather channel 2.1, 2.2, etc.
You can use the signal with a new TV, but when you turn ON the em-55, it inserts channel 3.
Most all TV here has what I call sidebands, and some have as many as 11, so the tv can be set for 3.1, or 3.2 or 3.3.
Even if you have a digital-to-analog device, the em-55 will not receive any .1, .2, .3, .4 and so on. I verified this recently reconnecting my old antenna to the converter then to several VCR's and DVD players.
Turn off the em-55, and the dot channels pass through the RF connectors..
Some DISH, cable direct TV receivers convert the signal to ch 3.
Depending on your TV inputs, you are better off to run video componenets through TV first then, connect TV to reciever via digital optical. Recievers have video pass through but, noyt the best route. You can use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, only have the one output from TV to reciever. Make sure you scan through TV and reciever menus to make sure you are selecting the right channel.
Sometimes the input/channel for the DISH Network and the DVD are different, and if using the same for both, then you will get an unclear picture on one. If at TV1, the tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and possibly an input such as video 1 or 2. The DVD player may be on a different input, such as video 3, or even just on channel 3 only. If at TV2, the tv needs to on channel 60 or 73. When using the DVD, try putting the tv on channel 3 or 4, that is normally the channel that the tv needs to be on. Also, make sure that the DVD player is not on while you are trying to watch just the dish.
This DVD+VCR is equipped with a frequency synthe-
sized tuner capable of receiving up to 181 channels.
These include VHF channels 2-13, UHF channels
14-69 and CATV channels 1-125.
Auto Channel Programming
1. Choose the SOURCE SELECT option, then use
b / B to select TUNER.
Use b / B to switch among TUNER, LINE1, and LINE2.
2. Choose the AUTO CHANNEL SET option, then
use b / B to find channels.
• The tuner will automatically cycle through all available
channels (TV/CATV) in the area and place them in
the tuner's memory.
•After the AUTO CHANNEL SET is complete, the
TUNING menu will hide and return to the TV screen
3. Make sure the TUNING BAND is set appropriately
(TV or CATV).
• TV : If you are using a standard antenna to receive
•CATV : If you are using basic cable to receive
With the assumption that this is a DVD recorder not just a player, and all connections are correct, two things need to be in place.
1. Source: the unit needs to have a cable tuner so you can receive a channel to record or an external input (look like stereo plugs) for video in and audio in so you can use a cable box for tuning a channel
2: Format: these units will need a DVD -R or DVD +R format blank to use. Some units can use both.
If this unit is a combo (DVDR and VCR in one box) then the source should be available to both for recording and selecting the appropriate channel should work. (Note if using the cable box then the recorder channel probably should be on 3 and set your cable box to the channel you want to record
Most tv setups require that you change the input source to gain the ability to watch the proper peripheral e.g. if satellite is connected on video one and the dvd is connected to the tv on another input such as video 2.
If the satellite runs into the dvd unit and from there the dvd is connected to tv you may have to power off or on the dvd player to resolve conflict.
Another problem may be the resolution setting if your tv is Hi Def. Set the tv and receiver to the resolution e.g. 1080i.
You can also changed the way the satellite is connected to the tv possibly if you have other inputs.
Check the channel also, if the unit is connected with coax it would more than likely need to be on ch 3 or 4 if you are at the satellite receiver box location. If you are at a stand alone tv off of a dual tuner you may need to search the channels for the right source both air(analog) and cable(digital).
Hope this helps you out. If I can be of more assistance let me know.
If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.
If i was you i would do the following:
1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.
That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.
However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.
