Sanyo ds 31350 tv

Tv has a gift and we can not get the uhf stations to come in. The indoor antenna was used on another TV and worked fine. I know there was something I had to do to set the stations, but there is no instructions with the TV. VHF stations are fine. Help please.

Hi there!

Assuming that you tried to tune stations onto the UHF bandwidth and received nothing,Commonly the tuner box is probably at fault and needs replacement. The VHF and UHF signals are split inside the tuner so if you receive VHF fine then UHF should as well unless faulty of course. Some circuits require an external IC to do the switching, but more on the older models. Regards and good luck, JUS004

RCA HDTV antenna is it Ok on a non HDTV


Yes, this antenna will receive VHF and UHF signals. If you install it properly outside and point it towards your local transmitters, it will work nicely (use tvfool.com for the directions to your transmitters). The "HD" label is something of a marketing gimmick; the tuner on the TV will pull in the signal and interpret ito display on your TV.

However, make sure that you have an ATSC tuner for your TV. Only a few low power NTSC stations are still broadcasting.

I hope this helps.

I can't get FOX on my converter box--what is the channel # for FOX?


It could be your antenna. Some retailers sold consumers UHF-only outdoor antennas and not VHF/UHF combo antennas. Other outdoor antennas may not have a power boost included for the VHF antennas (rabbit ears). The new DTV signals from stations are now broadcasting in lower power signals than before June 12.

Outdoor Antenna


KMSP/FOX 9 and KARE 11 both broadcast on VHF signals. WCCO and KSTP broadcast on UHF signals. You will need a VHF/UHF outdoor antenna to pick up KMSP and KARE 11 and also get all the other channels.

Indoor Antenna


Check your antenna to make sure it's a UHF/VHF antenna. You may need an indoor antenna that has rabbit ears -- that is the best way to get KMSP/FOX 9 reception on your TV. Your antenna should have a power boost to amplify the VHF signal if you are having trouble getting FOX 9 or KARE 11.

What Antenna Is Right For You?

Need help locating the proper outdoor antenna to receive your local television broadcast channels? Based on geographical maps and signal strengths, AntennaWeb.org locates the best antenna for you, whether it's a home satellite system, high-definition television (HDTV) or a traditional analog set.

Make sure you antenna is pointed toward Shoreview, where FOX 9 transmits from.

I have tried two different antennas and the screen says that the signal is weak I bought the TV today


If you're using an indoor antenna (rabbit ears), you'll find that there's little difference between them. Yes, you'll see all the fancy knobs, but mostly all they do is delay the signal from making it to your antenna jack, hopefully enough to reduce ghosting on analog channels...or a resistor circuit that reduces the signal strength. Receiving a good signal with an indoor antenna can be difficult...there can be obstacles between your tv and the broadcasting station, you could be too far away...it's hard to tell. Before you use an outdoor antenna (consider a good RV antenna if you need to use it indoors), try an antenna amplifier. It'll have to handle both VHF (at one time channels 2-13) and UHF (channels 14-69 analog). If it's an "antenna amplifier," it will be sufficient. If it's a cable amp, it would be a hit-or miss. The amp may be able to boost your signal with the indoor antenna you have now. Alternately, you can buy an indoor antenna with the amp built in. Hope this helps.

DO I NEED A DIGITAL CONVERTER TO OPERATE A 4 YEAR OLD JVC MODEL AV-32D305 WITH AN ANTENNA?


If you have cable running to your house, cable still uses RF and older TVs work fine. The problem comes when you try to grab stations from the air. The signal is still UHF, but the information riding on that UHF signal is digital, and will need a converter box to turn it back to analog so your older TV will understand it. . Cable: None needed. . Antenna: Need a box.

GE Model 20GT360 TV and digital antenna problem


Are you connected to a digtal converter or just a digital antenna? If only to an antenna then yes you will most likely pick up one or two low power UHF stations that are still able to broadcast in analog.

Digital channels


It's possible the stations you have in your area

have switched from UHF to VHF or vise-versa

I had the same problem and have lost one channel completely

You didn't clarify if your using an antenna or

cable qam so I assumed you are using antenna.

Youll need to check your antenna to see if it

supports both UHF vhf if it only supports one

that could be your problem .

go to antennaweb.org it will help you determine

what stations are avalible to you .

Indoor antenna problems


I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.

As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.

Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.

Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.

No uhf with antannae


UHF channels are basically "line of sight" type signals. You need to be pretty near those UHF stations.
You need a Uhf or combination Uhf/ Vhf antenna to receive them - - Usually an out-door type.
Your TV needs to be set in the "antenna" mode to tune beyond channel 13 "air type" channels. Channel 14 is the first UHF channel if you're in the antenna mode. If you're in the "Cable" mode then channel 14 is a cable channel which is operating at a different frequency from UHF.
I hope this will help you!

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.
