Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

This set was on a DVR cable box, but I moved it to another room, without a cable box. The problem is that I get no sound on two channels--the local ABC channel and TBS from Atlanta. I noticed that on the channel display, there is a box with SPA; on these two channels the box is green; on the others it is black. What is going on?

The SPA looks as if the box is just telling you that spanish audio is available. That would usually occur even if it isn't set to spanish, it is just showing it's available. Maybe try changing the audio channel? Ie. from TV to VCR back to TV etc. and make sure you don't set to SAP.


Lastly is ther an Atlanta Braves game on? Is it being simulcast on TBS and your local ABC channel? That may be the problem, it may be a problem with their telecast of the game. If this is the case, then call the cable company as it is a problem elsewhere.

Thanks!

Do I need cable to view local news


Yes it is called "DTV" digital television, you will need a tv, the tv must have a digital tuner built in most do now a days, if your tv is older you will need a digital converter box also, you can go down to your local store to find a digital antenna- take it home and try it. the issue with this is you can get all channels perfectly in one room with no problem and in the next room with the same exact equipment you wont get any or very little channels, unlike traditional analog television digital television either works or not, no sketchy picture- best advice is to buy a set up from a store that allows returns and try it, if it don't work try a different antenna, also try moving it around, keep in mind you will interfere with the signal so if it works take a seat in you chair it might interrupt the signal--Good Luck.

You can go into the settings on the TV, and tell it to do an auto search, but are you using the same cable?

You said from "a cable" to "a cable", implying you are moving it to a different room or something.

If that's the case, it's entirely likely that you just don't have signal in that room/cable. If that is not the case, then it is also entirely likely that the signal sent by the cable provider is essentially only available through the box (check with the cable provider for details on that... lots of variables there).

To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.

I have the same set, same problem with one of my MOTOROLA boxes, but not with another. I have a SONY TV that works fine with this new MOTO box, but the new VIZIO does not. The audio is coming through the HDMI cable just fine, and the fact that it works when you cycle power on your TV means it's the SYNC between the TV and the BOX. I have the identical problem and am taking back the MOTO box for another one. I spoke to VIZIO for about 45 minutes trying different things. They think it's the MOTOROLA box, COX (my cable company) thinks it's this particular box, who knows.

Is the cabling from the satellite receiver to the DVR hooked up right. It sounds like it's in single mode, but with the coax cable put on the wrong way.

Panasonic DVR, loss of TV Guide on-screen program listings


Hi,

I had the TVGUIDE listing through my GE TV and it came across with a notice that they would no longer be putting out the listings. That was last year and the listing never showed up again. Your DVR may be recording digitally but if you can see it on a analog tv, it is using a analog turner and you will need a converter box to record once everything goes digital.

Most of the digital converter boxes come with a guide built in. I have the Magnavox and the Zenith and they work fine. You will need two converter boxes, one for the DVR and one for the tv, if you want to watch the tv and record a different show at the same time.

I would hook them up by splitting the antenna wire to the tv and the DVR. Then I would use the RCA plugs to connect the DVR to the TV and use the Input setting on the TV when I want to watch the DVR. You will have to set the converter box to the channel that is playing the program you want. The DVR will be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the converter box is set on to broadcast on) to record on, not the broadcast channel. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off or the converter box will turn off after a couple hours and you will get no picture for the dvr to record on.

The digital signal is being sent over the air usually over UHF channels. It sent digitally but will be picked up by your antenna in the same way it picks up the analog signal thus there is no difference. There is no such thing as a digital antenna, thus a antenna from a Home Depot will work fine. I needed a outdoor antenna but the picture quality is the same as cable. Just make sure the antenna can pick up UHF and VHF signals.

Hope it helps!

DISH Network DVR-625 DTV - AUDIO PROBLEM ON LOCAL CHANNELS ONLY


I am probably stating the obvious here but here it goes:
If the 625 is connected to the tv using coax directly try using the RCA jacks to connect directly to the tv. If the 625 goes through a peripheral first, eliminate that peripheral and conect directly to the tv.If the problem exists with different media connections still at the same tv you can remove the coax off of the TV1(3-4) output on the back of the 625 and attach it to the TV2(CH60-73) output.You would then change your tv channel from 3 or 4 to ch 60air or 73 cable(which will be the same channel that TV2 is normally on in the remote room without the 625) Once you are on the right channel you will be able to tune TV1 to your local channel using the TV2 remote. If the audio is good here it eliminates the TV coax input on the TV1 and the coax cable connecting it as the source of the problem. You will have already eliminated any other inputs on the same tv as being faulty by using the other connecting media leaving you with the internal components of the receiver as being faulty. In this situation I know of no recourse except the obvious.

Some channels have no color or sound


once a signal falls below a certain threshold the color will be lost.
some sets are more sensitive to this loss.
if you see static in the picture on any of the channels then the cable is leaking and needs replaced /tightened.
if a local air broadcast is leaking into a same cable channel on the cable you will get poor to no reception on that channel.
for example : he we have a local channel 7 on the air.
if i tune to cable 7 and see a weak or distorted pic then the cable is leaking and needs replaced.
