How do I watch normal tv on my audiosonic television ?

That depends upon which source your "normal" TV is connected. If you have a cable box using a coax cable, then you will either select the DTV source if the cable box uses digital output or a digital over-the-air antenna, and ATV source if the box is using analog signals or if you are using an analog over-the-airwaves antenna. If you are using a cable box but have an HDMI cable connecting it to the set, then you need to choose HDMI1 or 2 as appropriate. If you have a box that uses the red-black-yellow RCA cables, then select the AV input. Remember that for ATV and DTV inputs from a cable box, you usually have to tune the set to either channel 3 or 4 and use the box to change the channels.

How get closed caption feature off

If you are using a cable box there may be a setting in the cable box that sets and provides the CC from the cable box provider and not from your TV.

Another words the CC is not provided via the TV but from the cable box. Check under the cable box settings if you are using a cable box and disable CC under settings in the box.

If the TV connects directly to an antenna or the cable service (no box) then the CC would have to be decoded in the TV. Usually there is a CC button on the remote exclusively for the Close Caption feature. If not and an alternative choice to enable or disable would be to select the menu option of the TV and index down to the CC option and turn off. Usually a remote is not required to accomplish this procedure.

My tv model magnavox26mf231d/37 shows hdmi is disabled and the hdcp authorization failure.

This could be a problem with the cable box or other set top box and not the TV. It's known to happen with Samsung cable boxes from Cablevision.

First try resetting the TV and set top box by unplugging both. Remove the HDMI cable from the TV and the set top box. Reconnect the HDMI cable. If you are using a Redmere or similar HDMI cable, make sure that the end labeled TV is connected to the TV's HDMI port. (These cables have additional electronics and are not reversible.) Connect the power cord to the set top box and wait 30 seconds to a minute. Then plug in the TV. To ensure the set top box does the correct handshake with the TV, turn on the TV first and set it to the HDMI input. Then turn on the set top box. See if this fixes the issue. (On some cable boxes, this can be a temporary fix. You may need to have the set top box replaced.)

If the above steps don't help, try a different HDMI cable. If that doesn't solve the problem, then the set top box is faulty.

I hope this helps.

Try these tips:

Connecting your Cable box through Coaxial to the TV.
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the coaxial connectors.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- You need to set the TV in a specific channel for receiving the signal from the Cable Box, usually they are channel 3 or 4. Please press in the TV's remote those channels numbers and check if you are receiving signal about the Cable Box in any of them.
4- If you do, afterwards remember to continue using the Cable Box remote to change the channels instead of the TV one.

No channel 3, the tv goes from channel 2 to 4, can't use the cable box

Two options...

1. Connect the Cable Box via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) or Component cable if you have a HD cable box and select the appropriate input on the TV to view your programs. This will provide the best picture quality as well.

2. Make sure the cable box is on. Using the original TV remote type in the channel 03 and if this tunes to the channel then go to the TV menu and then go to Set up and then select add/erase and select add.

If typing 03 did not tune in channel 3 then using the TV remote select menu then go to set up and then make sure TV / Cable is set to cable then on the cable box press the channel button a couple of times and then select auto program on the tv.

Cannot connect zenith vcr to zenith tv thru cable box

Hello mcgillicu390,

From your VCR you should have an (RF OUT) and an (RF IN) Connector (these also might be marked as ANT IN and ANT OUT, or CABLE IN and CABLE OUT).

The same goes for your TV (RF IN), (ANT IN) or (CABLE IN).

Now, take your Coaxial Cable (Cable with screw on or Push on connector with a wire in the center of it) and connect it to the TV (RF IN), take the other end of the same cable and connect it to the VCR (RF OUT).

Then connect your cable TV set top box or antenna to the (RF IN) of the VCR.

If you are using a cable box set your VCR and TV to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on your area)

If you are just using the VCR and an antenna set your TV to channel 3 or (depending on your area).

That should do it for coaxial connectivity.

If you are using the composite video and Audio cables to connect to your TV here are the directions for that.

Looking at the back of your TV you will see Three RCA type connectors colored as Yellow, White, and Red. Yellow is Video, White is your Left Audio, and Red is your Right Audio. They should be marked as (Video IN), (R Audio IN), and (L Audio IN). *note these markings may not be exactly like what is written, however the indicators should be close to what you are seeing.

Now look at your VCR, you may see a lot of RCA Connectors (up to 6 of these connectors) don't worry, you are only looking for the ones that say (Video OUT) (R Audio OUT), and (L Audio OUT).

Once you find the connectors on both pieces of equipment, take the Yellow, Red, and White tipped cables and plug the in their respective jacks Yellow tipped cable connects VCR (Video OUT) to TV(Video IN). Red tipped cable connects VCR (R Audio OUT) to TV (R Audio IN), and finally White tipped cable connects VCR (L Audio OUT) to TV (L Audio IN),

Once the cables are connected you will be able to use the composite selection on your remote to view the images from your VCR, the VCR in this case will be acting as the tuner for your TV with out you having to set the TV to channel 3 or 4, you will just have to use the AUX or whatever setting on you remote that allows the composite video to display.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

No audio on pasma when cable set box set to certain channel

In that case two things might be happening. 1. HDMI/DVI cable you using might be faulty you want to change that or 2. The HDMI input of your TV set might be the problem. I will suggest you use component cable instead, I am talking about the 5-color-coded (green, blue, red and red/wihte) cable to connect the set top box to your TV.
