Usually the result of a weak or interruption of the signal. If it occurs on all channels, look into getting an inline amplifier. If you have several splitters going to different tv's or a multiple splitter, the signal is degraded each time the signal is split. You can test this be temporarily making a direct link to the TV from the cable source. If it clears up, then you know you need to amplify the signal.
You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote if you found this helpful. Thanks.
If you have cable already, you do not need to use a converter for your picture. You would still just hook your coax cable to the tv right from the cable inlet. The converter is for over the air signals only, so you would place it between your bunny ears and the tv to convert your signal for your tv.
Hello..try to turn on the test signal generator switch it is marked test at rear of vcr...and chose av¨rf channel on your tv i.e the 0 or 9 channel than search for the vcr and memorize on tv...alt you can playback a tape ..pre-recorded without the test signal and make the search...alt 2...use a direct av-cable between vcr and tv..which is best and put tv in av mode...good luck...Ron
if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
