Wow, that's a crazy problem. It's an unfortunate side-effect of the requirement of electronic devices to not block any interference. I would recommend (as silly as it sounds) covering the entire back of the tv in aluminum foil and seeing if it makes a difference.

I hooked up my skywire and did channle surchtwo times i only get 3 channles why


First, I'm not a Skywire Tech.
* Interesting question. I'm an "Old School" electronics tech (retired) so I checked out this 'Newfangled' TV antenna.
* So are we bringing back the old 'rabbit ears'? Looks like it. But there is a big problem; Who is still broadcasting "over the air"? Here in Hawaii they stopped "Air" transmissions decades ago. They still use it as a back up in the event of a Hurricane or other Cable/Telephone wire failure. But most TV's are digital now and do not pick up analog channels.
* This year all my analog TV's stopped working as Oceanic was bought out by Spectrum. They came around searching out "loose transmissions" from homes with broken or unhooked cables. Unhooked or old TV cables will broadcast a weak TV signal that a nearby neighbor can pick up using an "Air" antenna hook up to a TV. So by "listening" for these Cable signals the neighbor can watch the same channels. (depending if they cable owner has an active account.)
* in a crowded area like a city with lots of buildings. It's probable there are lots of old cable connections that have been cut. Smaller towns may be spread out too far to catch your neighbor's cable signals.
* Spectrum did an area wide sweep checking for these "stray" signals and installed filters on to our cable line and everyone else that was inadvertently "broadcasting".
* I found some reviews from consumer reports and others that may help you understand the question.
* FYI; Elon Musk is sending up "Free World wide WiFi" system into orbit within the next 5-10 years. So you may see cable and Internet channels go the way of "Radio" (you still get car radio stations free, right?) Ahh, I remember our first TV in 1959. Only had one B&W station at the time. And it was free!

I BROUGHT A USED SHARP AQUOS TV I CAN'T GET IT TO SEE MY CABLE KEEP SAYING FAIL TO RECEVE BROADCAST


How are you connecting it to cable tv?

If you are using a coaxial cable to a cable box you have to turn to channel 3.0 with a Sharp remote by pressing 3.0 enter the dot (.) is down by the 0. There is a way around this if you don't have a Sharp remote. You can go into the menu and complete a channel scan. If the model you own is the one pictured then you should have the coax cable connected where it says analog if you are connecting to a cable box this way.

If you are using composite, component, or hdmi cables you press the input button on the television and pick the right input. It is recommended that you do not use the coax cable anyway unless you do not have a cable box. There is an input button on the television and on the remote.

I hooked my laptop up to my tv, through a docking station and I have this annoying background noise, because I hooked my computer audio to my tv. How do I get rid of that noise? I have a 46'' Sharp Aquos...


If you connected everything correctly EG: a 3.5mm jack to 2 X RCA plugs,into the TV. then the background noise might be because the volume is too high on the laptop. double click on the Volume control on the task bar and drop the level to half on main and wave volumes.

Volume is too low, even then it is turn up to the max.


Have you looked at the menu on your cable or satellite box to see if there is a seperate volume control for the box?
Usually it is found under
Settings>>Audio>>STB Volume

Connecting samsung home theater to samsung lcd tv and direct tv


Need to get more granular on this, Does the volume work HT remote, for like radio, cd, ipod audio? For you to use the tv audio through the HTB the tv's audio settings should be on the "fixed" output option. This gives a line level to the Amp independant of the tvs volume adhjustment. Otherwise you will need to adjust tvs volume 75% or so before the audio amp will reproduce a good volume. Turn down audio amp prior to making any adjustments. Let me know thx

Sirius question


Yes it should be very easy with use of the ear phone jack - depending on the model of course but generally all you need is an ac/dc power supply, the antenna connection, and for connection to receiver you can connect via FM or hard wire.
FM: as in your car pick an FM station frequency that is clear (no station on it) lets say 88.1 then set your home receiver on 88.1 and there you have it.
DIRECT: purchase a stereo 3.5mm headphone cable with two RCA male plugs at the other end. A faily common cable found in dollar stores or for five times the price at Walmart/Radio Shack etc.. Plug the 3.5mm plug into the 'headpone' jack of the satellite radio and the RCA plugs into the rear of your home receiver - usually a 'aux/line in plug" or "tape in" plug then turn the knob on the receiver to "aux or tape" selector. Bingo you should hear satellite radio all over the house....if the volume is UP! Take care Frank

Volume issue


Very loud it never gonna be. It's a tv with very small speakers, but I have a lot of customers who complain about that and I checked first the signal source. Sometimes the sattelite receiver or cable box give a sound not so good. The best way to check it is to plug something (an antenna or just a 2 inch wire) in the coaxial plug to see if on the tuner is the same sound. I bet is gonna be stronger.
