Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We do not have cable or satilite hooked up on this t.v. We go to program the channels and we get all ditital chanels. We have a antena hooked up that is for stand alond counter type t.v. rabbit ears. The problem is that when we go to channel 4 here in Dallas. We cant get this channel. When we go to the regular air channels 4 through 37 they dont come in good at all. do we have an incorrect antena or what. This is model DP19657. The antena is RCA high proformance off air HDTV. What do i need to do to get good recievtion on regular channels or how to get channel 4 on the ditital channel.

The newer TV's require you to go through 'setup' in the menu section. It should allow automatic antenna search.

I own two rca stb7766c converter boxes. One of them only gets 1-6 channels after fooling with it for a good 20-45 mins. The other one takes literally hours most times to even get any signal strength;...


Unplug it,replug,power button on again,rescan channels,should get 50-53 chanels,not might need a roof antena or a digital antena for better stronger signals.

My 60'' LXI slimview television will only save one chanel.


If you have remote control for the channels on your set, try to push menu then choose "memorize channel" or choose "cable" then do the channel memory.
Thanks.

Dont know how to get cable channels , i just get local channels.


Hello.

It sounds like you need to change a setting before running the auto or channel scan. On the same menu screen that has the option for running the channel scan, you should see a setting that has next to it the word "AIR" or "ANTENNA". If this isn't changed to "CABLE" or "CATV" then the TV will only scan for a limited number of channels because it assumes you have an antenna hooked up to it instead of a cable line. This is the same for all TVs. Anytime someone runs a channel scan on ANY TV and they only pick up a limited number of channels, they need to change the setting I've described. And remember, it will be on the same menu screen that you go to in order to run the channel scan.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

P.S. On some TVs, autoscan is called autoprogram.

We have basic cable that goes upto 60 or so channels, but one of our household televisions only shows upto channels 13


First make sure how many chanels the TV itself has.. Some TV's (usually the smaller 14" old CRT's) dont hold that many chanels..

New Insignia 19 inch when hooked up to Optimum Cablevision does NOT get any cable channels..JUST basic channels...OLDER TVS all get the Cablevision full spectrum of chanels. Does it require a BOX to work...


yes, the premium channels are in a band width only reachable with a cable box. The standard or what would be over the airwave channels are available without a "box" in the basic cable tier.

Programming digital channels


The problem is not with your TV. You need a digital box to unscramble the channels.
