All plasma TVs are able to pick up local stations without any other accessories. Hook your antenna to the 75 ohm cable input go to menu and select channel search and it will find and store any active channels you can receive...its quite easy to set up
Hook up the cable wire that comes directly from the wall to the dvd recorder's in connection, then get a 3 ft cable cord and connect from the out of the dvd recorder to the in on the tv. You should be able to set the dvd recorder channel and timer and leave it off. you then should be able to have your tv on and watch any station but to watch the tv with dvd recorder on, your tv should be set to either channel 3 or 4 depending on the switch on back of dvd recorder. I hope this solves your problem. Foxpaw13
To get local over the air channels, you will need to connect an antenna as your signal sourceinstead of Cable on the back of the set. Then you will have to go into the TV menu for signal source and select the Antenna/air option. Then you will have to go to the auto program/scan menu and scan in the stations. This may take a few minutes. Now you can watch local stations for free.
I believe the FCC "must carry" rule require cable to carry local stations also.
Have both the AV cables and hdmi cables hooked up from the tv to the
ps3. On the TV Menu goto the av station which is different from the
HDMi station...From the ps3 menu screen gotot settings then to video
and audio and select hdmi then back to the tv menu and select the hdmi
station and the ps3 main menu should be seen and you are all set
you have cable and the stations are still snowy? could be tuner do you have a box or directly hooked up to tv, try unhooking box if you have one and directly hook it up to tv if you havent already done so
If you can get some of the stations without the box (often the case
for those who subscribe to digital cable or movie channels), then one setup is to split the raw cable and feed the box and the TV, then have the box feed the VCR and hook up the VCR composite video and line level audio outputs to the TV.
The VCR tuner would always be set to the VHF frequency your cable box RF output is on, usually ch. 2, 3 or 4.
This setup allows PIP to work, with the TV tuner limited to
unscrambled analog stations, and it also allows you to tape anything
coming through the box, while watching unscrambled analog stations on the TV.
However, it requires the VCR to be on and the TV set to the
external video input to simply watch what is coming through the cable box.
There are other ways to set this up with more flexibility using
splitters and A/B switches, or you can look for a special switch box
that handles the job.
The above assumes your TV has composite video and line level audio
The only way to have full flexibility to watch any scrambled or
unscrambled station at the same time as taping a scrambled station is to have 2 cable boxes. The only way to have your VCR control the
cable box and record different programs by switching the box by itself is to have a VCR with a cable box controller, also known as a cable "mouse".
Hope this helps
