Hi,

My post is based on the assumption that all other channels have no problem.

A couple of possibilities:
1. Aerial need re-orienting which involves re-directing for a better signal. This requires physically moving and adjusting the antenna to where it is pointed at;
2. RFI (radio frequency interference). There is a radio transmitter between you and Ch7's transmitter that overrides the Ch 7's signal. It would have to be transmitting very near Ch7's video frequency (170-180 MHz) or a harmonics. You could try reporting this to your government's agency charged with communication such as the FCC in the United States or NTC in the Philippines.
3. If all else fails, you may need to switch to cable.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I get back my local channels on my Vizio by rabbit ears


Make sure that you have the TV tuner set up to receive ATSC (digital) signals via "Off Air" or "Antenna". Having it set to the "Cable Ready" mode will only get you Ch 2 - 13. These settings are usually available in set up and may even allow the TV to scan for available channels, etc.

Hello,I have purchased a digital converter to connect to my tv to receive local stations,My question is,What do i need to connect all 4 tv's that I have to the converter? or Do i need a converter for...


The converter has only one tuner, this means it can only tune one station or channel at a time. The output of the converter is usually a single coaxial cable jack. The output is generally a user selected channel - often Ch 3 or Ch 4. When you connect the output of the converter to the antenna input of the TV, you set the TV channel to match the setting on the converter (again, Ch 3 or Ch 4).

You could install an amplified splitter to split the output of the converter and run a cable from each TV to the splitter, more on this amplified splitter, later. Set all the TV's to the same channel as the converter output (Ch 3 or Ch 4) and you would be able to watch whatever the converter is tuned to. This means ALL the TV sets must watch the same channel. What is showing on one will be shown on all. This may not be a problem if you live alone and own 4 TVs. You could simply turn one TV off when leaving a room and turn on another when entering a new room. This will be a problem if there are two or more people in the house that wish to watch different programs at the same time. To accommodate everyone, you would need as many converters as there are different programs that are to be watched on different TVs at the same time - 4 would be a good choice to provide the greatest flexibility of tuning for every TV.. You would simply install the additional converters on the other TVs just as you did with the first TV.

If you wish to use a splitter to divide the output of the converter to several different TVs (or have a single antenna and want to send the signal from it to several TVs for that matter), an amplified splitter is highly recommended. A standard splitter only divides the signal and has no provisions to boost the signal from the antenna. The more ways a signal is split, the less signal there is to supply to the TV sets. The result is a snowy picture. An amplified splitter not only splits the signal the way a standard, non-amplified splitter does, but also boosts the signal from the antenna to each TV. This provides a much stronger signal to the TV which results in a better picture. Pick an amplified splitter that has enough output jacks (based on the number of TVs you wish to connect).

I hope this helps and good luck!

Shows "no signal" on my


when you say jack in antenna, I assume you mean you have an outide antenna. If you have never recived over the air signals before you won't now. If you have cable tv, then go into setup and set your scan channels to CATV and not Outside antenna, or what ever it might be called on your set. i need more infomation before I can give you more advice

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

OTA stands for "over the air"and for a std TV it is searching for VHF/UHF signals as beamed from satellite. If the antennae is properly mounted and connection don't have any sulpher deposits, then the tuner has to be replaced. As far as the antennae, the basiscs are:
Based on this information, you need an antenna that receives high vhf and uhf. KVIE (ch 9, PBS) and KXTV (ch 10, ABC) are high vhf and not receivable with the CM 4220. I would recommend the Winegard 7694 or HBU-22 antennas. The Winegard has higher gain and is a 5 inches shorter than the HBU-22. Shorter boom length and higher gain will come in handy with an attic install. However, 7694 is more expensive ($60 vs ~$40).........................................sodeep
