How do I switch from satellite to antenna?


Make sure you are using the right input on the T.V. as well as using the T.V.'s scan functions to search for channels. these things can be found in the source and menu window of the T.V. respectively.

My sdtv tuner wont pick up any signals for stations


After installing the converter, you have to search for active channels. If you have already searched and found none, your antenna connection may be no good or the antenna you are using may be no good

Radio plays upon startup but withing minutes message says searching for signal then antenna not found. replace antenna?


No, it's the Sirius Tuner. If it's 2 or so years old, there's a bad ground on the antenna port pc board. If your tuner is roughly 6"x6"x1" it's the one. The new tuners will not have this issue and are considerably better built. (DEI) is the manufacturer of the new unit. If you don't mind rebuilt, you can save 40 or 50 on a repaired tuner. The repaired tuners are very reliable since they upgraded the board with one that's durable. Hope this helps

Can't find any satellites


If you don't use it very often it can take time to find its location. Have you tried using the 'set initial location' option? Once it knows roughly where it is and what time it is it can then work out which satellites it should be looking for instead of searching for any/all of them. The manual does say that it will take time if it has no initial clue as to where on the planet it is, and if you're on the move while it's trying to work that out then it may take even longer. Obviously, if it has a poor view of the sky, or if most of the satellites are behind you and you have a tin roofed aircraft then that will probably not help either.
How do you know the antenna is OK?
Do you have the remote antenna to try?

How to set up cable input on television...searching for channels


the wd52525 has 2 antenna inputs. put the cable in the bottom one first (ant1) press menu, then scroll over to antenna, the scroll to ant1 and hit enter. if none are found repeat using ant2. if none are still found then the chassis is bad or you have no signal. try the cable on another set if it works then visit www.tv-tech.com

Garmin 310. Bought March 2007, working perfectly until 1100 yesterd, then kept losing satellites, then coming back and so on. By 1200 lost all satellite connection. Satellite screnn shows no activity...


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

Garmin's KNA-G510 won't find satellites unless I tell it I'm in another state and it expands satellite search


I have the g510 with a kenwood head unit. On the satellite screen, on the left it only shows one satellite and on the right it is showing that there are upwards of six or so satellites that it is receiving reception from. I thought it might be the antenna, so I bought a new one. Still having the same problem. It cannot find my location. I've updated the software, I don't know what to do!!

No audio on tv channels but perfect on DVD playback etc


this looks very much like a problem I once 've had (and later found the solution by accident). When you go into the menu of the remote control and press the "automatic channel search" function you can always specify from which "source" the signal is arriving either 1, from antenna, (ie. over air) or 2, from cable or 3, from satellite. Then the decoder searches and finds a bunch of station in its reach. Once (while hooked up to an antenna) ,I had accidentally made it do the station search under the "cable" header instead of "antenna" and it found the same stations as the one's I've had before,(over antenna) but some stations suddenly had no more audio. Because I was unaware that the set was programmed under the cable header I could solve this strange mystery only much later when I reprogrammed it one day and it searched the stations under the Air-Antenna header, then suddenly all the stations were coming in properly, with good image and full audio. ------If this doesn't solve your problem then search under the menu of your set if at another part of it you can specify some other similar options like Antenna-Cable choice. I'm quite sure its easy to correct. good luck Alex

Satellite radio antennas do tend to fail sometimes. In the early days of Sirius/XM they were made a lot better, but now I've had problems with them a lot more frequently. If the antenna is plugged in securely and it still shows the 'antenna' error code, you most likely need to replace your antenna. It is possible that something else along the antenna signal path is causing your problem - Sometimes the antenna connections in the dock or the receiver itself can cause the issue, but most likely it is the antenna.
