Trouble with volume on certain channnels

The problem is that on certain channels, since hooking up the converter box, the volume set as loud as it will go, and you still cannot hear it at all hardly. What's up with that?

    We don't have cable, we have a roof antenna. Thanks for trying though.

    Unfortunately, our converter box remote does not have volume buttons, only the channel buttons. So we have to use our original television remote for volume control.
    Thanks for trying.

If you get good audio on most and then low or very low audio on certain channels then call you cable company and have them inspect this problem. It is their business to get both good video and audio to you.

Try these steps:
Turn the volume on your converter box all the way down. Turn the volume on your TV up to ½ way. Now turn up the volume on your converter box until the it is at a comfortable level. Check http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/index.html for more information.

Is there a way to set the volume so i dont have to keep changing them all the time


hello, are you referring to the volume of the TV set when you change channels? to reiterate every time you change channels the volume also changes? in this case I do not want to speak too much but I'm almost certain that television providers are required to adhere to a volume leveling standard which would require television broadcast stations to broadcast at a certain volume level for unity. Are you watching cable television? I happen to know that not all cable television providers level they're broadcasting some do.I notice that you are using a CRT unit are you attempting to use a converter box with the unit? If you are using a converter box there may be a chance that volume level is one of the options in the menu, I can not say there is much at all you can do about this.
As an alternative your television set maybe damage and the volume maybe adjusting randomly or in a way other than intended.

Good luck and thanks

Poor reception or unable to receive certain tv channels on sets not connected to dish or cable - what is the solution?


I would assume that your using digital converter boxes for the sets that are not hooked up to cable? Do you have digital antennas? The old analog style will work but reception will not be so good. You can find digital antennas almost any major department stores. The boxes are still available at some locations. Since the broadcasting has gone digital for regular channels,analog tvs will no longer recieve stations with out a digital converter box. I hope this helps.

Phillips dvdplayervideorecorder connect w/zinwell converter box


First off get the TV on the right channel. It will either be ch3 or ch4. If you are using a cable box the dvd/vcr combo will have to be on ch3 or ch4 as well. OK, Make sure the input connector on the combo is hooked to the output connector of the cable box and the output connector of the combo is hooked to the input connector of the tv. Deal with one part at a time. First hook the combo to the tv and get the tv on the right channel (ch3 or ch4) so that you can see a pre-recorded dvd or video play. Then you will know what channel the tv is supposed to be on. When you find it don't bother the tv channel any more. Stop the dvd or video and hook up the cable box and turn on the cable box and set the box to a known good channel. Now put the combo on ch3 or ch4 with the combo's channel selector buttons until you see the cable box playing on the tv (remember you already set up the tv channel). Change channels on the box but don't bother the channels on the tv or combo anymore. You can put the box on whatever channel you want. The box will be your channel selector. I certainly hope that this helps. I know it can be confusing but don't give up. Just remember that the tv and combo have to always be on ch3 or ch4 (which ever one you found before). Good luck and thanks.

No sound on sony tv


Your set may have a choice of audio sources and outputs in the basic (initial) setup since it is not uncommon to mute the internal speakers and get your sound from a home theatre system or receiver. Also, if you are using S-video connectors between converter and set, there is no sound path, this is video only, and you will have to add a couple of cables, likely with RCA connectors, between the two.
For reference: Audio cables: Red=right channel, White=left.

I bought the magnavox and all my channels are


Check the converter box. Many have a volume setting that is usually set very low at the factory. On the remote control for the converter check to see if there are volume buttons. If so, change the converter box volume higher, to a level that makes the TV audio level "normal", then use the volume control on the TV for adjustment as you watch. If you set the volume on the converter box too high, you may get some distortion in the audio from your TV. So adjust the converter box to find the proper output from your TV without distortion.

I recently hooked up my dtv box, tuned the antenna and have a great picture. On every channel I have background noise. Sounds like bacon frying, hissing noise. I also set up someone else's tv, very simple....


If there is a volume control on the remote that came with the converter box, use it to make sure the box volume is set to its maximum. Many models allow you to control the volume out from the box to the TV, and the levels are set about halfway. When you turn up the volume on the TV cause it's too low, you can get the kind of audio problem you describe. Make sure you turn the volume down on the TV first before starting with the box.

I cannot record using a DVD/VHS player.


You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.

Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz

If you have satellite, I am assuming you at least have a converter box hooked up. If so, make sure the converter box volume is set at its max. There may even be a volume setting in the converter menu that forces the volume output of the box to always be at full so that you don't get variations in audio when changing channels. Warning...before attempting this, please turn down the volume on your tv to at least the middle setting so you don't blow your tv speakers if this works.
