Re: digital tuner

Try this!

The manual states the TV is designed to search for channels.

turn the power on
then hit menu
(if it doesn't start searching for channels)
then hit channel up -let it run a complete channel search
hit menu again
(if it doesn't start searching for channels)
hit channel up- let it run a second channel search
hit menu again after it finishes it's 2nd search cycle
if it doesn't go to a channel, hit the input button.

it worked for me!
hope it helps

Dx-L321-10A: M-B315AA on direct tv. Can't get HD. Says restricted. Tried comp. No good, haven't used HDMI. Do I need Digital? Thanks for your time.

These are directly from your users manual:

  • Built-in HDTV tuner: Add HD-capable antenna to receive over-the-air high-definition broadcasts, where available. Optional set-top box required for high-definition cable or satellite programming

  • 2 HDMI inputs: Provide an uncompressed all-digital audio/video link for the highest quality connection and support copy-protected HD broadcast content.
  • you need to do one of 2 things to get HDTV on your device. Either attach an HD- capable antenna or attach an HDMI cable from your satellite tv providers box. Good luck.

Why cant I change channels when recrding 2 progs?

Hello Anonymous,
You did not specify if you are using a DVR capable cable/satellite box, which I what I presume is the case.That DVR has two tuners in it - each tuner allowing you to watch and/or record two programs at one time and in any combination.If both of those tuners are used for recording then you cannot watch another "live" stream as there no available tuners to tune and display (or stream to the DVR hard drive for recording). You can only switch between the two recording programs.
As a side note, if your TV has a built-in tuner, you can split the cable and have one going to the DVR and the second run going to the TV set. You can then use the TV's built in tuner and watch what anything it can get. It won't get scrambled digital cable but will get analog and Clear QAM channels.

Not auto scan channels

Make sure you have the tuner type set to cable and not air. Also try plugging a different TV into the same cable and see if that works. If not the issue is the cable, if it does the TV may not with your cable. Try and contact your cable provider.

I do not have cable How do I program my channels for digital tv?

Do an autoscan if you can. If it doesn't have a built in tuner, you'll need to buy a digital tuner.

GV42L vizio tuner

Your vizio has an internal digital tuner. When you are on air, make sure that it is set up for digital. It might say DTV. Some sets have an analog only and digital only program option in the user menu, or as a seperate input. When in doubt, check your user manual.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

I have a 2 tuner tv. When Cablevision installed my digital cable box, I lost the 2 tuner capability. Is there a special way it needs to be hooked up to get back the 2 tuner capability?

Your cable system is probably QAM (digital cable). The tuners built into the TV are analog and digital OTA tuners (ATSC and NTSC). If you connect the Cablevision box to the component video input (and connect the audio out of the box to the appropriate audio in) on the TV and an appropriate antenna to the coax (antenna) input, you will be able to swap use the tuners in the TV. (See for antenna types and direction or for directions of the most likely stations to be received at your location. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is conservative in the list it provides.)

I hope this helps.

(please note, you probably need to get the component video cables. These have 3 RCA plugs on each end (red, green and blue). To carry the audio you need a cable with 2 RCA plugs on each end (red and white). Match the colors as you connect them.)

Built in tuner not working since digital transition

I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

Digital Signal?

This TV does not have a digital tuner built in, so you'll need a converter box if you want to get off-the-air digital broadcasts. These boxes are available at all big retailers and on-line. The US Gov't is offering $40 coupons to help pay for these, but the program is out of money and all you can do is go on a waiting list at this time. Information is at
