Samsung Ant 1 (Air) and Ant 2 (Cable)

Hi: I used Ant 1 for a coaxial hookup to my antenna for over the air signals. When removing the TV from the wall I accidently pulled off Ant 1. Is there a way to use Ant 2 as a substitute.
Thanks,
Mark

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

Can i use rg6 on my dx 949 radio that i am using as a base?


RG6 Cable is a 75 ohm cable and is generally used in residential settings for UHF/VHF off air antenna, cable & satellite TV signal feed lines.

The transmitter you have - like most CB, Amateur, etc. radios ant associated antennas have 50 ohm outputs and outputs. This is for a reason. Ohm's law says Maximum Power Transfer occurs when Resistance In equals Resistance Out. In order to achieve this, all the components must have matching (or close to it) resistance values. Inserting a 75 Ohm cable in a "balanced" 50 Ohm circuit can cause a mismatch or high SWR. There are ways around this - but it's too deep for here.

Your best bet would be to either try the RG6 and adjust the antenna for lowest SWR, or if unable to get it down to an acceptable value (less than 2:1 is the worst I'd accept - but 1.5:1 is significantly better), purchase a high quality 50 Ohm coaxial cable assembly instead. Good luck!

On the vizio 55' hdtv led lcd my mother just bought yesterday . I need to hook up TV cable which is a coaxial cable and the roof top Antenna which is also a coaxial cable but on back of the set ,there is...


Hello

On alot of cable boxes there is also an "ANT IN" that you can bring your rooftop antenna in to. When you turn the cable box off, it passes the ANT signal to the tv.

I hope this helps you out

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

I have a Sanyo DP32648 that keeps losing only one channel in the program. When the TV is turned off, that channel disappears from the program. I have to manually reboot the entire list. How can I solve...


It sounds like there is some electrical noise interference that would not be "fixable". If though, we reconfigure the way that they are connected together, we may be able to avoid the noise.

Instead of allowing the antenna signal to "pass through" the 625 we will skip it.

After following the directions, switching between satellite and antenna will be done by selecting on the SANYO "Input 1" for satellite, and selecting "Ant" for antenna. K?

Try this:

From the 625 Tuner 1- using RCA cables (a.k.a. composite cables, or red, white, yellow cable), connect to "Input 1" on the Sanyo TV. To see composite cables go to http://www.wowvision.tv/settingsandconnections.htm

Next, remove the coaxial cable between the Sat box and TV. (Sanyo "Ant. In" port and 625 "Out to TV" port) Set that cable aside.

Now, remove the incoming antenna cable from the 625 "Ant. In" port, and connect it to the Sanyo's "Antenna In" port.

Finally, scan for channels and check for the presence of CBS.

Once verified, test the TV by turning off and on.

Turn on the satellite receiver and switch Sanyo to "Input 1" to verify sat picture.

I believe this solution will satisfy your needs. Please let me know if it doesn't work, and I will need to talk to you about signal strengths, again.

God bless,
Highdefjeff

N 0 tunneing signal


Most of these TV's are equipped with a on board digital tuner and most people think well heck I'll just hook it up to the cable outlet what the hay. But little do they know there cable company wants you to have there box fer you tuner to work. Make sense?

1. Call the cable company and ask for digital signals to be sent without a box (requires a cable card).

2. If your not using a cable company network and trying a antenna your going to need a Digital antenna's and you also going to need line of sight (no not like sat dishes) I mean pointed at the Broadcast antenna.
if your in a rural area umm your going to need a outside antenna.

I feel what you got here is:

1. ether a OTA over the air antenna and your two far away.
2. or your trying to connect to a cable network that is broadcasting locked digital signals.

Ether the case you must investigate but 9 times out of ten that is what it is.

Or

1. you tuner is bad(not hardly)
2. the connection is bad.

Ether case here you need to investigate, please do rate my solutions and click the accept button for my efforts.

Just got a Sega Mega drive, connected to my plasma


Most old systems such as Mega Drive will come with an RF adaptor, which plugs into the back of the console and has a coaxial tip on the other end, to connect to the tv.

When you connect the coaxial end to the tv, you connect it to the round coax plug which is where you used to plug in your old cable tv hookup. It also might say Ant. or Antenna.

Turn on your megadrive and use your TVs input selector to change to either "antenna" or "tv" or "cable" input, or until you hit the input which displays your megadrive's signal.

Tip: use your TV's view options to change the input to a 4:3 or "not stretched" aspect ratio so that your old Fullscreen video games will not be stretched out wide on your new widescreen HDTV.

Good Luck!

Is it necessary to bring the signal from the ant. if I never intend to record? Do I still need to use the "out to tv" hook up?


If you want to watch TV you will need to hook the antenna to ANT. IN and run a coaxial cable from OUT TO TV to ANT. IN on the TV. Otherwise disconnect the antenna from everything. Good luck to you!

Cable plug broke off


Well first repair the coaxial cable going to your antenna. There is no way you can use RCA cables as a substitution for coaxial cable. They have totally two different properties. You can use the coaxial and feed it to a VCR/DVD player where you can output the signal with RCA/composite cables. Basically, use your VCR/DVD player as a tuner for your TV.
