Question about Curtis-Mathis CM19011 TV

1 Answer

Ant/cable During a power outage, I used a generator to run tv. Cable was out so I hooked up rabbit ears. When power came back on I hooked cable again but cannot get reception thru cable box. When cable is hooked up directly, it works but not through the box, which has premium channels. Pushing the menu button, I can't find a ant/cable selection. Any ideas?

Re: ant/cable

Your box might be blown out

How to make bunny ears work on my 1996 panasonic tv

Rabbit ears will only get channels that are very close or strong--a lot of channels are no longer broadcast in analog over the air---ask your neighbors what they use and consider going to cable or sat.

Want to set this up without cable. Someone told me to go to "air" mode and add rabbit ears and this will work. I cannot find an air mode on this tv. How do you set this one up with rabbit...

You will once again, purchase a converter box to receive an over the air channel. I don't think you will have to really worry about using an over the air mode on the TV. It may be in the menu, but will work otherwise after being placed on channel 3 to receive through the converter box. The rabbit ears will be connected to the converter box itself.

I GOTthis tv. Put it in my house , it was on cable , now at my place there is no cable and i cant get a picture. What do i need ?/ Rabbit ears or what else

A simple set of rabbit ears should suffice. You'll also need to use the remote's menu to change the input settings from cable to local.

Digital to analog converter box hookup

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box

Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

Cable setuo for model 27r410t

Get an antenna hooked up, even rabbit ears should pull in a few analog channels. Set top boxes will only output Ch 3 (switcheable to ch 4 on the back if needed) and cable may be dead or only give you scrambled CATV channels. You need to set your tuner to "antenna", not CATV, IRC,HRC, or ATSC (if you have a digital tuner) and do the setup again. You could have a bad tuner at worst, and all is not lost, just hook up a VCR via RCA cables and use the VCR tuner to change channels. Keep TV on Ch3.
