Converting my TV

I purchased a Philips 25" TV, model #24PT6341/37 about 18 months ago. I am connected to our local cable service with digital signal. With the new digital signal requirements coming into effect in Feb 09, will I have to purchase a converter box in order to continue viewing programs offered by our local cable provider or will I have to buy a new HDTV? My email is: jethrobuff@cox.net. Thank you.

I have a cable TV connection, analogue, no hdmi, how do i connect dvd player and my other speakers to the TV?


You could purchase an "RF Modulator" box (a very small electronic box) which is designed for connecting DVD players to TVs which have only a coax cable input. The 'RF Modulator' box needs to also have the external audio connections ('RCA plugs) for diverting the audio signal to your external amplification (other stereo & speakers). These RF Modulators are found at most stores, and run $16 - $25.

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Digital TV come and goes. Strength varies and you may find interferance can be an issue. The trees a new building. You may have to optimize your antenna or even purchase an amplifier for the signal from the antenna. Ask your nieghbors with similair systems if they are having trouble.

Don't count out a bad cable or antenna failure

HD TV not passing the tests offered on network tv


Which network? Cable? Satellite? Dish or Direct?
With any of these providers, you should get an ATSC or "digital" signal. If not, the problem would most likely be with the service provider since they are converting the signal for you. The only way that your set would be affected is if you have an "off air" (antenna) signal only. At this point you would need a converter box. If your service provider is providing you with a HD receiver, then you should have no problem recieving HD (as long as your paying for HD). However, keep in mind, digital is NOT HD. If there is an incompatability with your receiver, check with your service provider for a software or hardware upgrade. Also, check with your local TV serviceman to find out if there are any software upgrades (firmware) for your TV. Being three or so years old, it is possible.
One last thing to check is to see what type of signal you are passing from your providers box to your TV (which type of cable". At a minimum, you need a "component" connection to pass HD content. A "composite" signal is standard definition. Best you can get right now is an HDMI cable. Best "one cable" source for video and audio.
Good Luck.

Indoor antenna problems


I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.

As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.

Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.

Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.

You could try coax cable switch.
It will allow you to change from the signal going to the cable receiver and directly to the tv.
You would have to walk over to the tv and physically switch it.
shutting of the cable receiver may help too, while you are watching local channels.
Also, if you get a digital receiver, the digital signals come in much clearer.

Sharp Aquos 46 In TV Problems:


Sharp list no issues or service tips for this model but I am sure most freeze ups are and issue of weak cable signals or defective cable receivers. If this has truly been elimnated the main digital pcb in the TV could be issue or more likely the TV may need the latest software upgrade. This is most likely only able to be facilitated by a Sharp auth. service center.
