Through what input is the rooftop antenna connected to the tv? If its RF then thats the source of the problem. RF=Ultra low quality. So get an RF to component RCA adapter and that should solve your problem. It does not sound like a problem with the tv.

Upon checking I/We suspect it would be a problem wih the tuner at this point, SAT mode as in satlite I prosume that is connected to one of the other connectors entirely, If sound works on DVD,SAT, Game then its the tuner, I would have a local shop check it out for you, Thanks

    One thing here for clarification You told me a diffrent TV then gave me a rating that took the taco now your reporting a diffrent tv with a diffrent diagnosis X,y and z boards,



    Lets clear one thing up if I may if you give me a vizo model tv then tell me you having issues with audio on a certain connection for example ATSC but the SAT and everything else is okay I would say it was the Tuner,



    But now you give me a diffrent model after carefully taking the matter to another expert, I am kinda fustrated at this point.



    I thought i was diagnosing a Vizo!



    In this case your problem would be with one of those boards mentioned by the other site witch one? We need to talk with you further!





    please advise!

Do I need a digital converter box & antenna to get


It really depends upon your TV. If your TV is newer and has an ATSC tuner in it, then no - you'll just need the antenna. However, if your TV is older and doesn't have an ATSC tuner, you'll need an external tuner, what you're calling digital convertor, and an antenna to get the local channels. Use Google or another search engine to find the specifications for your TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner. Or, connect an antenna to your TV, run the channel scan (off-air antenna mode) to see if you get any local channels. If you don't, you'll need the external tuner.

Intermittent sound with cbl/sat. Sometimes sound


Your receiver is HDMI version 1.1,1.2 or 1.2a and just don't work with anything to be honest with you. It's an HDCP (copyright Issue) and 5v pass thru issue. and the list goes on. If you can, just run HDMI directly to the TV and optical or Digital Coaxial to your receiver for audio and all will be well again. If you need more help, just post a comment and I will gladly help some more

Problems with hearing sound from bravia LCD tv through bravia DAV-HDX275 theatre system


The fiber optic port on back on your bravia tv is only for when your using a over the air antenna and watching local atsc channels in your local market. You need to run the fiber optic from your hd cablebox if it has one or your hd sat box if it has one. If you don't have a set top box with the fiberoptic port on it you can use a digital coax cable from the cable or sat box to sound system. The only other way to get sound if you don't have a cable or sat box is to run the red and white rca audio cable from the tv to the sound system and got to the audio setup on tv and turn the tv speakers off and you might have to adjust the audio to fixed instead of variable.

HDTV COMPATABLE


the hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.

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.

Breaks in audio


The receiver is not locking on the digital audio on the HDMI. Try a different cable or sat box if you use one. Use a digital audio cable instead of the HDMI to the reveiver. HDMI is full of issues.
