Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

Hi, I have a Toshiba Regza 42XV635D - which is a great TV set. It is connected via cable and I could get in about 260 digital (DTV) channels. However the sorting of the channel is a mess, first I need to free the channel number e.g. "1", then I have to give the nummber to the channel I want to have as "1" and then it's still on position "113" or so and I have to shift it to position "1" in the list. For 260 channels (ok I don't need all) this is several hours work. Then I switched "Auto channel Updated" off - to avoid unwanted problems. After a week or so there was a change by the cable provider - accidentially someone of my family pressed "yes" when asked for an update - my few hours work was gone... this happens again and again. 1. How can the sorting be done faster? 2. How can I block unwanted updates? Thanks a lot! U =8-}

    Great suggestions from Azraelsrl and I fear he is right that there is no solution - but I find it hard to believe that Toshiba has not found about that problem now...

    As commented - I paid money - I do not want to pay money for the fact that there is no solution...
    Sorry!

Hi ukl
To answer your question;
There is a way to turn off the auto channel update but you`ll have to redo your selection;
Go into your menu and under "setup".
Scroll down to "dtv settings" and press o.k.
Go to "auto channel update" and use the arrows << or >> and select off.
The auto update will now be off until you decide to do it yourself.
Hope this help. Cheers

    After the auto update has been turned off, you could also try the channel lock in the dtv setting`s menu.

    What i meant in the last comment is that it may cancel the ability to update manually as well.

The issue here there is not easy way to fumble with sorting of channels and further yes you do have to reset all that back. Sorry to deal you a bad deck, one question why don't you use a cable box? channel sorting on DTV is the pits i know i would not want to be assigning channels for hours on end, I mean your asking for a easy way to circumvent the system in your tv witch is not going to happen with a snap of my fingers so the answer is no the way you where doing it before is how its done now and there is not change to that. Easy way out is cable box! but not everyone wants to pay that rental price for one of those boxes but sooner or later the cable company will require it again for its digital network its just a matter of time.

Thanks i hope this help i am not sure that you going to be jumping up for joy on my answer tho. please be considerate i know you paid money for a solution but someone gots to type one out if there is any I just hate to see you go unanswered!! The accept button would ne nice for my efforts.

You're not gonna like this but here it is: none of your problems can be fixed, only mended a little.
1. There isn't another way of changing positions. The only way to make this faster is my method: 
  a - make a list with all the channels then make another list with the channels in your order;
  b - send the channel from present 1 to 400 then move present 113 to 1;
  c - this frees 113 so in there put the one you want (~ 145)  - daisy-chain them till you reach the one on 400; 
  d - send the next movable channel (~ 2 ) to 400 and start another daisy-chain.
This procedure usually reduces the needed time in half.
2. you cannot permanently block the updates.

What is the best converter box to use with toshiba regza 42hl67 flat screen tv?


As far as I can make out, this Toshiba model is made for the US market so doesn't actually have a freeview tuner. It will only receive satellite and cable HD signals and local US TV, all of which has to be bought. You need to get something like an August DVB400 - HD Freeview Set Top Box -Digital PVR Tuner with USB TV Recording, eBay would be best I think, where they are sold for under £30.00. The tuner packed up on my 32" Regza so I bought one of these and it works fine. Plus you can record to a USB stick if you don't want to miss a programme. Hope this helps ......BS

Mintek DTV-260


The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.

The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.

There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.

I hope this helps.

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

Is my REGZA 42" 42HL167


This REGZA 42" 42HL167 has ATSC digital tuner built-in. when you set the TV to scan for channels, you must set the source to AIR, not CABLE. Since the Digital TV signals use the Old UHF band for transmission, your amplifier is made for this band? Try it without th amp first.

Please leave rating if it helps

Recieving no digital channels in my LCD TV


hi there alot of the updates for the system should automaticly download via ariel to the tv to keep you up to date some times if the strenght of the signal isnt srong enough then you might not get the update they send out , one thing i have found is that if you use an ariel booster then this makes the signal stronger this helps particularly if you have more than one tv set up with the same ariel, you could try unpluging all ariels to other tvs making sure the ariel lead you are using has no conections in it as this also gives you loss of signal if there are multiple conections in the lead runing from the ariel to your tv set hope this helps some

Cheers ;)

Cant get dtv on my toshiba regza


Does it work with a DVD or VCR?
How is it connected? With a Coax cable or a an RCA component cable? Check that the correct video source is selected (The one associated with the input you are connected with) or that you are tuned to the correct channel on the TV if you are using the coaxial cable to connect. Could be channel 3 or 4 but I have seen them set for channels like 73.
