Question about Televison & Video

Hitachi 19WDVB I received a 19" LCD (Digital) Hitachi for Xmas but I can't tune in any stations. I have always had problems recieving good quality reception from my out-door areial and have to use an areial "booster". I thought with a digital TV I may be able to receive a better picture on my TV, but at the minute the TV can't pick up any picture. Have you any idea how I can improve this situation? Thanking you in advance

Had the same problem. Digging through the manual I came across a paragraph (at the top of page 24 - DTV Features) saying "if you have selected DTV then it will only display the DTV menu. (I didn't actually select DTV - we can't even get DTV in our area, but the ASP programduring startup appears to have set it!
You have to press the Volume +/- buttons on the remote, then the Input button and it will bring up the input menu. There you can select a different input. Once I did this, I found it had both my TV channels tuned and my satellite channel!
Now my problem is I can't control on/off or volume with the Sky controller - which is why I'm trawling the forums!!

We can't get any reception at all with our LCD 23-231BB-G after moving to London. Using a One for All aerial SV9215 which had always been fine before. Re-tuning shows 0% signal strength. Any ideas? Tx


Yeah, you are getting lousy reception. If your antenna is directional re direct it to the direction of the stations you want to receive the most. Get an antenna amp to boost signals. Get a good directional antenna and mount as high as possible on mast for best signal reception. Make sure you have nada in the way of antenna and stations for best results.

Message says check reception. radio is in same location as always


This message means that the radio didn't receive the weekly check-in or test signal from the station it's tuned to, sometimes the station will fail to send it. To clear this message, simply turn the switch on the side of the radio off for a few seconds, then turn it back on.

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.

Hi, I live in a flat in London with a shared rooftop aerial (no idea of spec). I have a Sony KDL-46X2000. The built-in freeview tuner doesn't seem to recieve any HD channels. Is the built-in tuner the...


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 live in Victoria Tx. I can not afford cable or dish. I am able to recieve all 4 of the the number 25 channels. Why am I not able to recieve any of the three number 19 channes. All 19 and 25...


Channel 19 actually broadcasts on VHF channel 11 (approximately 201MHZ) and channel 25 actually broadcasts on UHF channel 15 (approximately 479MHZ). I know that sounds a bit weird but it has been done so that stations don't have to change there "call" channel number when we switched to Digital TV. Your digital converter box keeps track of this. This is important to understand because you need and antenna that is good at picking up both UHF and VHF signals. If you're not getting channel 19 it may be due to a poor VHF portion of your antenna. If your using a basic old set of rabbit ears for your antenna that has a loop in the middle then I might have a trick for you. Most rabbit ears have 2 telescopic antenna elements. Extend or collapse until each length is 14.7 inches long. (Which is a quarter wavelength at 201MHZ). You are effectively tuning (Optimizing) your antenna specifically for that channel 19. You may need to rotate your antenna a bit to find the best signal.

There are other factors which can hinder you receiving channel 19 but this is a good starting point. Let me know what type of antenna you have. Hope this helps.

I have lost digital reception. I can play DVDs and get analogue TV.


You need to make sure your reception is strong enough to receive digital reception otherwise you will only receive analogue reception and dvd playback ability is normally nothing to do with the TV's reception.
Ensure you have strong reception before doing an auto tune to search for the channels. Good luck.

Best way to hook up ps3 to hitachi 50v500 for best quality picture and audio


The HDMI output on the PS3 to the DVI input on the 50V is the best video option. Be sure to set the PS3 to the matching output. If you need instructions for this, go to:

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/videooutput.html

The best audio option I have used is is the digital optical out on the PS3 to a surround sound reciever that has an optical input. We have a Denon reciever. The sound is excellent for a game, very good for movies, and music sounds good too. Unless you are an audiophile, this should give you impressive results.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I bought an AVOL LCD TV multi system at the PX in Germany. I receive over the air AFN broadcast (one station), and had no problem with my Hitachi CRT TV. I cannot get this TV to tune in the station.


Hi filddol,

could you receive the German TV station, if yes you have to select in the setup menu the area to US and try again to search the AFN.

or use the following link for AVoL service within Germany
