Programming channels for TV viewing?

You can often find the digital channel numbers for your local stations in a guide like or . Alternately, check if the local stations websites offer a link to their schedule. This will usually list the channel/channel digital identity. Another source for the digital channel numbers are the antenna choice/position/direction guides. Look at or . gives the direction and signal strength for all channel transmitters in your general area. is much more conservative and will only give the strongest stations in your area. That conservative list assumes an external antenna and clear path between the transmitter and your antenna.

In my area, the analog channel 7 became digital channel 7-1 . However, the channels 12 and 16 now transmit at 43-1 and 46-1 . However, after letting the TV do the auto-search, they are 12-1 and 16-1 when I type in the channel numbers on my remote.

I hope this helps. I might be able to provide a list of your local digital channels if you add a comment with your general location.

I have Philips DVDR7260H recorder where the guide plus system will not set up. I have done as insructed on automatic and with manual setting with host channel set to bid up tv channel 23with no lck . C...

Firstly, my DVDR7260 (so I guess yours too) can only use analogue channel updates so it should be set to ITV, that is channel 03 (if you have usual analogue channels tuned). BUT by now that suggestion is redundant as Guide Plus updates have been stopped since 1st Jan 2011 as part of the Digital switch-over. Nice one! If anyone knows how to invoke the Freeview EPG on the DVDR7260, that may be the one thing to keep it out of the bin.

I have connected an audio source to the optical input channel 3 on my Denon AVR3300 but cannot get any audio thru mu speakers. The CD and Blueray connected to channels 1 and 2 work fine. What other...

If you have the User Guide for the Denon 3300, go to the "setting the digital inputs" section. The input settings are in the on screen menu called "system setup menu", then move down to "digital inputs".
Make sure that input you are having problems with is selected properly to "Optical".
The Denon 3300 guide is a mess I know and not user friendly in the least.
I have been using the 3300 for 9 plus years with no failures.

Using RCA P61939 without Guide Plus

Guide plus still works even if you don't have the wand hooked up. In the setup section of the guide plus there are several questions that must be answered properly or it won't function as you would like. It maybe labeled as options as well. Thanks

Have Warning message on DVD 'Your Guide Plus has not received TV Listings. Check your host channel.' What do I do?

Symptoms / Customer Description
TV Guide issues.
1. Not getting the correct info, or no information.
2. TV Guide giving double channels.
3. TV Guide grid comes up but no information.
[Primary Symptom Code: 118X ]


TV Guide information comes from the Host Station.

1. If no information on some channels or incorrect information not TV issue, but station not giving any information or incorrect information.

2. If grid comes up, but no TV Guide Info could be
siginal issue.

3. Double stations showing up. Unfortunately double listing is the way it's going to be. They have to send out all possible OTA listings for the area. You can hide the channels that you are not getting.

For these type of issues
Please have the customer call our Customer Support Line 800-222-7669
Our Call Center Rep. will fill out an investigation form with data pulled from the TV. These reports will be sent to Gem Star for their investigation, and the Call Center will get
back to the customer.

Programming wrking fine, however i have no channel guide/listings

Call LG. They will have you go through diagnostics over the phone and ask for diagnostic data the TV has in memory.

I have done this about 10 times and my TV usually loses all it's TV guide data after I customize my channel listings (delete all the channels I don't susbscribe to). Within a day or two of calling them, my TV Guide is back to normal.

I will never buy another LG TV. Thank God I bought the extended warranty. I've had the power supply already replaced (this is also the 2nd set..replaced 1st set due to same issue), TV turns itself on at times ( in winter - low humidity/static electricity??), and loses TV Guide listings on a frequent basis (after I change the channel map).

Cannot get new dish to work

You need to call Dish and have them authorize the new receiver. They may send you a new smart card depending on the receiver. Also, if there is an outstanding balance on the one you were given, they likely won't authorize it.

Panasonic DMR-E85 DVD recorder TV Guide problem

Try unplugging the DMR-E85 power cord. It is important that you unplug it from the back of the recorder, not the wall. Leave it unplugged for 10 or 15 minutes. For good measure disconnect the cable 'in' connection as well. Once both lines are plugged back in it will go through its self-check diagnostics. Leave it alone for awhile (give it time to consider the error of it's ways). If you are lucky, when you turn it back on it will ask you to verify the channel lineup. If this does work, and all the channel info is correct, press 'enter' (lineup 1 highlighted). Good luck! This is an awesome machine, WHEN IT WORKS!
