    I have the same problem. I have video but no audio on the local CBS station both over the air and on cable. Toshiba says it is signal integrity and the televsion needs to be calibrated because it is slightly off the frequency. They say digital signals are very close together and sometimes difficult for the scan to pick up. Any other suggestions?

    those answers are totally, the signal is digital, and the audio information is embedded into the digital stream, so if you get a good picture, then you are getting the audio. More than likely the audio is being encoded in a way that the tv can not decode...more than likely its encoded in Dolby 7.1 and the TV only recognizes Dolby 5.1.

Model 50HM66. Why is there no sound on channels 6 & 32-1?


Could be a tuning problem but I have observed the same problem in this area, especially on channels with dubbed language translation. You can try repeating channel search to see if it helps.

I can't get local ABC, CBS, PBS or NBC with an antenna, but I get like 10 Ion channels why? I have tried several antennas with no luck?


The signal recently changed to digital. You need a digital tuner in order to receive the new signal.

Sound on one channel from over the air antenna has suddenly become garbled. All others are fine.


If only one channel is affected it is not a problem usually with the set--it does not know what channel you are on---look in audio menu and make sure if set has SAP it is not on.

I don't have cable TV, so do I need just an antenna or a digital converter box to be able to watch this TV. The Make & Model # is: TOSHIBA LCD TV/DVD Combination & 27HLV95


The TV has NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital) and a ClearQAM (digital unencrypted) tuners. So you do not need a converter box. However, digital TV signals are either all or nothing (sufficient signal for the tuner to process the signal or a no signal message will appear). You should check antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for the channels that are available in your location depending on how the antenna is pointed. (Hills, tall buildings and trees may decrease the channels available in your location.) Antennaweb is very conservative in the list of available channels and assumes an external antenna. TVfool.com provides a list of channels (in each direction) depending on the type of antenna you have. (Indoor antennas usually don't get as much signal as external ones.) Antennas for sale have a color rating that matches the colors given by TVfool.

The manual for the 27HLV95 is available from Toshiba as a PDF: http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/27hlv95/docs/27hlv95_om_e.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(antennaweb.org indicates that my location will only receive two channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With an external antenna, I actually get 10 (including the sub-channels) with the majority from transmitters 30 miles away.)

This tv is not connected to cable or dish, but has an interior antenna. up to about 2 months ago, we could get network channels (abc, nbc,cbs) which is all we wanted. Suddenly CBS dropped out, says "no...


How far away is the CBS station? Are there any obstacles that would block the signal (say new construction)?

What channels do antennaweb.org or tvfool.com suggest you will get from your location? (Antennaweb is more conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna.) Do you need to rotate your antenna to get one transmitter or the other? Indoor antennas are more likely to get interference and direction issues.

You may want to restore your TV to the default and then rescan the channels. (This may or may not help. It usually helps more with scrambled information than lost channels.)

I hope this helps.

(good luck. I've had issues with my CBS and Fox affiliates (sharing a transmitter location). At first it was clearly my TV and the reset helped. Now I have no clue as to the cause - the external TV antenna gives a strong signal on the other TV. The problem TV says the signal is bad and this is the closest transmitter and antennaweb says I should get it easily. Even pointing the antenna straight at the transmitter doesn't help.)

I just bought a 19av615db, located in Ireland. how do I set up? Not connecting it to sky or anything,just want to get local channels for now?


If you are in Nothern Ireland you will need a UHF antenna, and Republic Ireland you will need VHF and UHF antenna to recieve off the air signals.
Connect the antenna to the back of the TV. Turn the TV on, select "menu" button on your remote and slect TV from TV/Cable menu press enter, go to main menu and select channel set up menu and select auto channel button and when finished press menu button, check your user manual for details.

Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.


I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:

Channel 10 analog

Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.

hope this helps u out.
