How do I watch normal tv on my audiosonic television ?


That depends upon which source your "normal" TV is connected. If you have a cable box using a coax cable, then you will either select the DTV source if the cable box uses digital output or a digital over-the-air antenna, and ATV source if the box is using analog signals or if you are using an analog over-the-airwaves antenna. If you are using a cable box but have an HDMI cable connecting it to the set, then you need to choose HDMI1 or 2 as appropriate. If you have a box that uses the red-black-yellow RCA cables, then select the AV input. Remember that for ATV and DTV inputs from a cable box, you usually have to tune the set to either channel 3 or 4 and use the box to change the channels.

I cannot change from the ATV to the DTV. ANY clues on how to do this??


Got to know the model number of your tv. If the set is only atv then you would need a decoder box to convert digital signal from antenna or cable company to analog channel or to composite input on the tv.

Cannot get TV to work on antenna...In menu I set cable to off, then initiate autoprogram but tv says "no signal". My antenna has a bulit in digital to analog converter. Suggestions?


Must buy a Digital converter box and to install it seperatly to devert back to tv anlogue tv signal to make the tv to work.Tv antena inverter alone can't convert analogue signal to digital signal only can give basic tv antena for better antena reception.Tries websites like Ebay.com,Amazon.com to buy a stand alone digital converter box to install and that didigal antena install and auto scan again u should able to get all the free DTV air stations.

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

If you need a copy of the manual, see: http://www.vizio.com/m220va.html#support .

Digital Signal on my Conia TV has gone. Cant access menu for DTV


I would guess that you are using either cable or satellite for reception. If that is the case, the signal is already a "digital" one. The digital reception you are attempting to receive is the over-air broadcast signal that was implemented recently. This change-over only effected those using external antenna connections. Cable and satelite systems have not changed.

Hope this helps,
Dan

My dtv keep saying nosignal antina hooked up .protron tv was working fine ran scan station. stop playing


dtv needs a strong signal to keep track of the channel. The antenna is good inside the room but tends to be affected for interferences. to catch signal (as in the past with ear rabbit antena) is difficult inside the room. and roof antenna is better but needs a good installation. the cable channels can work digital without the dtv. Is hard to give you any idea besides this ones because i don't know how the set up[ is in your case problem, but i hope i could help you a little. Now if the antenna is rasonable good and still having problems with your channels the suspect the dtv failure.

Cable box


Yes, this TV will need a converter box if you are getting off-the-air reception. It does not have a DTV tuner built in (too old) although is a high-def capable set.
