Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Switching between digital and analogue broadcasts is not possible. The satellite cable and the analogue cable are connected in a splitte. From the splitter to the TV one cable is connected. When I press the bottom to switch, the TV shows a smal message, explaining the service is not reachable or words like this. (I am typing this from our home in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, while the new TV is located in our house in the south of France) I do hope somebody knows how to solve this problem. Thank you in advance. Feyona

Hi Feyona,

I'm sorry to tell you that it is now possible that the analogue signal could now be switched off in that part of France.
Plans to switch off the analogue siganal in areas in France start this month and now could have effected you.

Bellow is a quote from the French business newspaper "Les Echos"

The French business newspaper quotes Philippe Levrier, the head of France Tele Numerique, a public body tasked with helping the public adopt the new broadcasting system, saying that he has recommended to digital development minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet a revised timetable.
Under the revised plan, analog broadcasting would be turned off simultaneously in two or three regions in the second half of 2010. A total of 24 regions will eventually switch to digital, starting with Alsace on 2 February 2010 and Lower Normandy on 9th March 2010. After then, there is no timetable for regional DSO, and the analogue switch-off may have to be postponed, he said.
Separately, it has been announced that French digital terrestrial channels will be available from June on the Eutelsat Atlantic Bird 3 satellite in a package to be marketed as Fransat. The satellite has always been used to broadcast the DTT channels to homes beyond DTT reception.
The 18 channels will be available from June for free though viewers will need to buy a set-top box with smart card that is expected to cost about Euros 100.
This is similar to the UK's Freeview system.
Other countries, notably the U.S. have already delayed switching off their analog TV services.


I hope this was of some help to you.

Regards.

Hi.

The problem is not the TV. If the message says that the service is not reachable, that means that there is no signal on the cable, or that there is a problem with the cable signal.


To understand better the problem, I will need to know:

  • What service work and what does not (Dig. or An)?
  • Are both service cable, or you want digital terrestrial, or analog terrestrial along with a cable service.
  • Does the TV use internal tuner, or is there any external box.
  • What is the cable TV service provider?
  • Are you using receiver provided by French company?


My answer may take some times, we are not always online.

Regards.

G.

Check your aerial connection.
Ifit is combined digital/analogue set put it back to digital, white screen used to indicate analogue reception. There is no analogue broadcasting here anymore, only digital. The option should be on your remote.

My sanyo tv is not finding digital channels


Since a CRT (cathode ray tube) TV is an analogue TV (has a tuner) the only method of watching digital channels is setting it up as a monitor (channel 3 only) and using a cable box that takes digital and broadcasts analogue through the co-axial cable wire.

Do I need digital converter box if i go without cable or satellite


The digital convertor Box is needed when you have taken a cable connection with a digital option. This allows you to choose as many channels as you need and the number of channels will be more than on an analogue cable line.
So you must decide if you need a cluster of channels to select and choose, the digital wil help but the cable will be cheaper.
The dish to select a satellite requires a LNB with the decoder of the service provider.You must check the options available.
Hope you decide.

The colour has gone on all channels - analogue and digital. The set is 3 years old HD Phillips the digital receiver is also defective as it keeps switching channels


Probably not the TV as for it to work in black and white the colour has to work. Possibly a cabling issue between digital receiver and TV

No signal


Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.

Digital Signal on my Conia TV has gone. Cant access menu for DTV


I would guess that you are using either cable or satellite for reception. If that is the case, the signal is already a "digital" one. The digital reception you are attempting to receive is the over-air broadcast signal that was implemented recently. This change-over only effected those using external antenna connections. Cable and satelite systems have not changed.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Sounds is lower than it should be, possible short.


Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

btn_top_gold.gif spacer.gif line_gold.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif5. Why do I still see black bars on my widescreen TV when viewing certain widescreen DVDs and HDTV broadcasts?
Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.
