Make sure you are using the right input on the T.V. as well as using the T.V.'s scan functions to search for channels. these things can be found in the source and menu window of the T.V. respectively.

HDMI input works ok. Hooked up external antenna. Did channel scan. It will only scan for analog channels. Has analog raster on screen. It has no information on menu page for digital channel scan.


do you have the air option in the scan menu see

page 9 important fact cable digital gets wiped by air digital channels

You may be able to get around this via a digital hd tv decoder box and then have it on a hdmi input on the TV as a backup to the cable if you can't have both cable digital channels stored and aerial digital channels stored

Can I use a dish 500 dish with a VIP722K receiver Ilive In eastern Pa.


If you have a clear view of the south western sky, the receiver will receive most channels (after running a check switch test, menu, 6-1-1). You will not receive most HD (which comes on Eastern Arc satelllites not on that antenna, or on satellite 129, not on that antenna) and depending on your DMA you may not get locals, but most cable channels will be available, at least in Standard Definition.

Tried hooking up my tv to the satellite cable but I have nothing but blue screen and it says no signal. tried to auto scan and it wiped out all my channels. How do I fix this problem?


I think I see what happened here. Normally you have the tv cable connected to one connector and satellite or others to different connectors. When you want to switch you use your remote or the tv controls to change the source.This will preserve the scanned channels as well. On your remote you should see source or something like that. As you select it it should shows options like antenna, cable aux1 aux2 and so on.

So hook your tv up and rescan your channels. Then hook up the satellite to one of the other inputs. Then use the remote to switch the source. You will never see more than one sateliitel channel at a time and you will have to use the satellite remote to change channels on the satellite box.

TV is not responding, turns on and off and does not show picture nor sound, does not move from channel 22-2


Couple of things.
  • Are you on an antenna or cable/sat box?
  • If you are on an antenna, the sub-channel of a local DTV station (22-2) was the only thing the digital receiver was able to pickup on the initial scan of channels.
  • If you are on an antenna, rescan for available channels.
  • If you are on a cable/sat box, and scanned for channels you probably picked up a like channel that is in the same bandwidth as 22-2. Probably not even a channel.
  • If you have a cable or satellite box, hook it up to one of the VIDEO channels using either a Composite AV cable (Yellow/Red/White) or a Component A/V Cable (RED/GREEN/BLUE with RED/WHITE for audio. If you are lucky enough to have HDMI for your source, use that.
  • Going forward, all of your changing channels will be from the SOURCE.

How do I set up my tv, for auto scan I thought I needed a digital converter, I just learned that I do not. Do I need an antenna of any kind at all. I am very confused. I really would like to talk with...


If you are trying to program free HD off air you will need a UHHF antenna attached to the ATSC hook up on back of TV then have TV scan for channels available. If you are hooking up a "cable" box or satellite receiver that will just get hooked up with the output of the box going to an appropriate input on your TV. If you are just taking a cable from wall (being used as an antenna) then hook that up to the QAM antenna connection on tv and scan for channels once that is hooked up.

Hope this helps - if not please be more specific on what you are trying to hook up to what input.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Recording


First make sure you are hooked up in back. You can go either way. Cable out to tv, Cable or RF in from antenna should be from what you are using like cable, satellite, or just antenna. Then you should have set put on channel 3 or 4 and you can switch that in back of VCR also. Then if you don't see picture on screen with vcr on then find channel that you are coming in on like for satellite you need it to be on 3 or 4, cable you can just put it on the channel you want to record. The other way are from Video Jacks the red, white, yellow. If this is the way you are hooked in then you should look for video 1, 2 or which ever you are hooked into and find on set. then look on vcr for video or aux 1, 2 or depending on the one you are hooked in to. Hope this helps. If not then tell what you are using and what you have done so far!
