Attach the antenna to the antenna/TV input on the back of the TV. If you have a flat twin lead wire on your antenna, you'll need a co-ax converter. (Best buy, etc.) Power on the TV (and the amplified antenna) and use the Input button on the remote to select the TV input. Next use the menu button to select channels and then engage the auto-search option to memorize all of the available channels in your area.
I really need to know the model number of your Insignia TV and which connections you are using between the Dish box and the TV to give you the correct answer. If you are connecting both cable and satellite, I believe it should be set-up as follows:
1. Connect cable feed to TV
2. Run auto channel scan on "cable" setting
3. Connect Dish box to TV and then try changing the "input" selection.
With the Dish box switched on to a channel number you know, try pressing the "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button on your Insignia TV remote repeatedly until you find the satellite feed. Once you have done so, you should be able to change satellite channels using the Dish remote.
If you need further assistance, please post back with the model number of your TV and details of the connections you are using on the back of the TV.
Bring up your video menu, make sure the cable/antenna mode is set correctly. Also do channel search/ auto program. If your AV is operating a DVD player etc., there should be a button to switch from TV to AV. If you are trying to input Cable/Antenna to AV jack you may have it plugged into wrong jack, it should go into 'antenna/cable in' jack. Hope this helps.
Hello ruthharris, I think the antenna is built in :S dunno exactly may be .. btw there is [Antenna] button on the remote control You can download the Manual of this TV by Clicking Here Thank you for using FixYa.
are you looking for this part? http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/264658/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Thomson&ModelBrandName=RCA&ModelNumber=D52W17BYX1 if so, just make sure your model number is on the listed devices.
Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture. From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]
The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.
Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
Hi, if I understand you right, your TV has only one (1) input method and that is an S-Video and you would like to view regular TV or cable channels. Two possible ways of getting to watch: 1) Get yourself a TV Tuner that will accept antenna or cable input and whose Video output will be fed in to your S-Video. Normally (but not always) output is a yellow RCA jack but of course some would have S-Video output also. Then you would need a cable to conect the output of the tuner to the input of your TV. Cables also can be S-Video to S-Video or RCA to S-Video. Of course, you would need another RCA pair (stereo) to feed the audio to your amp for the sound. 2) Another is to use the built-in TV tuner of an old VCR. Same procedures follow. Hope this works out for your. Please let me know how it turns out. Cheers.
