Re: Unable to locat and select the AV channel on new LCD...

Hi, try switching your tv to channel 3 or 4 and see if that works- there should be a switch on the back of your DVD player beside the Coaxial Cable outputs-it will allow you to use Channel 3 or 4 as the default to play dvd's. I hope that helps-if more detail or wiring diagram is needed-please leave make and model numbers and i'll try to help.
Cheers and have a Happy Holiday Season!

I have and older toshiba tv and we can not get the xbox to come in. we have tried every channel and get nothing but snow


I think you will find that the X-Box signal is not on any channel number and you will need to select an external input/source on the TV.

Switch on your TV and your X-Box so there is a signal being sent to the TV. Then look for a button on your remote or the front of the TV marked "INPUT", "SOURCE", "AV" or "TV/AV". When you have located this button, press it slowly and repeatedly until you are able to see the signal from the X-Box on the TV screen. If you press too many times and skip past it, just keep pressing it until the picture from the X-Box appears again. You will also need to use the same method to return to watching TV when you have finished using the X-Box.

If you are still having difficulty, please let me know the model number of the Toshiba TV and any remote control you are using and I will let you know the exact method for your TV.

Hope this helps.

If i am on either AV2 or AV4 watching either sky or a DVD the TV will then change itself to channel "00" automatically after a few minutes. I am then unable to change back easily if i do then it...

A newly designed LCD TV has various capacity functionalities. For example, AV 2 or AV4 are connection capabilities with DVD or VCR recorder device peripherals. Once any devices are connected to the TV, an auto scan is required to acquire adjustment of what is common expection whenever powered on. USing the TV remote control, perform settings fucntionalities to acquire the auto scan to acquire connection functionalities. For example, refer to the TV user guide or manual on setting the TV channels. For TVs that are connected to subscriber providers cable tv or dishnetworks, contacting technical experts would readjust the TV signal receptables to display media. good luck

Sony Bravia 40'' LCD 240Hz TV can't get video signal from DVD

Are you absolutely sure you have it wired up right? Are the Cable RIGHT wires color to color, is the "Correct Input" selected? Remember you do NOT use "Channels" but an AV, AUX, or External.input. Most DVD etc, use AV, IE: Yellow, (Video), Red, (Audio), White (Audio) for the OUT connections. These go color to color at TV end. And uses 3 Cables. The "Other" type of Output/Input is Component Video. This is ALL Video, Red, Blue, Green, these go color to color as well. BUT you MUST also send the Sound, Via the AV, IE: The Red & White, AV, Audio IN/OUT connections, So you in this case would have 5 cables/connections in all.

Unable 2 watch dishtv in Benq LCD SD3731 with DVD cbl plugged in

The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.

Got sky installed today only thing getting on screen is "no video signal"

Sounds like the "channel" you are trying to watch on is not the one it's plugged into, or a faulty lead.
check the connection from the sky box to the tv, and select the av or hdmi channel that it is plugged into on the tv.
check the lead by swapping it for a known good one, for example from a dvd or ps3, but unplug from the dvd/ps3 and plug into the sky box(make sure that all the units are powered off when swapping leads) and try on the channel you normally watch/use the dvd/ps3.
If you suspect the sky is at fault, press menu on the sky remote and then flick through all the av/hdmi channels until you find the menu, then try to reinstall/retune the sky box.
If that don't work phone sky......................

Panasonic TX P50V10B Plasma TV

In order to get any of the Freesat channels, you need to connect a Satellite dish to your TV. If you have a Sky dish, you simply need to run an extra Cable from the LNB from the dish and connect to your socket on the back of your TV.
In order to get Freeview channels and Analogue channels, you need to connect a aerial to the back of the TV.
There is a menu option for the TV to start straight to the AV input (your Sky HD box). It is Menu > Setup > Other Settings > Power on Preference. Select 'AV' for your TV to start on Sky HD.
Also even if you have your TV to start on TV, when you turn on your Sky HD box, it should automatically switch to the Sky box.
