Ant 1 air Ant 2 cable

I plugged in the tv and the cable connection, but I only get local (air) channels 1-13. The owners manual says that antenna 2 is for air or cable, but I only see one cable connection on the back of the TV and I have connected it to the cable connection in the wall. How do I connect it to "Ant. 2 cable" to get the cable channels?

You don't mention using your SOURCE button to select HDMI.You have to put your akai in the right source selection by using the source button on the remote or the source button on the right side of the TV. I hope this helps. SW

I called RCA's 800 number on the back of the owner manual--got a response that said to replace the unit since only the up-down channel changer buttons were not working. Using another remote (universal) now--cost only $5.

Bob,

Are you certain you've connectet the antenna coaxial cable correctly?

There's 2 of them on this TV, one for digital and one for analog/cable connections, make sure you're connected to the correct input for digital TV.

If you're certain you've got it connected correctly then your problem is going to most likely be in the TV tuner board inside the TV.

Good Luck!

How do I attach an antennna?


On the back of the TV look for the connector marked Ant/cable. This is a silver connection with threads on it. If you have a digital indoor antenna, connect it there. Same goes if you have an outdoor antenna. Now go to the setup screen and select AIR for antenna type. After that do a channel search and select digital and analog channels. Let the TV find all the stations it can. When it's done searching, it will show a picture. You may need to aim the antenna to get a better picture .

Panasoics plasma viera rv will not auto tune telling us to insert aerial already in Model TH-P50X20Z


The manual for this TV can be found here. If you are watching broadcast television, or cable TV service that does NOT require use of a set top "cable box" tuner, you would connect the coax cable from the UHF / VHF antenna or cable into the ANT cable connector on the rear of the TV as shown on page 8 & 9 in the manual.

You would then tell the TV setup to scan for available channels as shown on page 12 of the manual.

If you are using a seperate tuner - like those supplied by Cable TV, Dish, DirectTV, Satellite, etc. you should use (1) the HDMI 1, 2 or 3 inputs (HD) 720P and up; (2) the RGB inputs of AV2 for best picture quality 720P or better (HD), (3 & 4) the AV1 & AV3 (on the side next to HDMI) for 480i and possibly 480P (SD) and finally the ANT connector for 480i. If you have a computer that offers VGA jack to connect to an external monitor, use the PC connector on th erear of the TV to send it HD images.

Page 27 & 28 detail manual channel editing.

Good luck!

Does emerson model #20s5b have a switch to convert from cable to satilite?


It's in the channel programming menu. It should say, "Cable/Ant" or "Cable/Air" If you want a roof antenna with local channels, change it to "Air/Ant" Then click auto program with the antenna hooked to it to scan for free local channels.

I cannot get regular tv to come in and my antenna is hooked up properly


Here is a few suggestions:

1) Make sure the tv's vide mode is in "TV" or "ANT" or "Antenna" some times even referred as "Off Air"
2) In the TV's settings make sure a "Channel Scan" has been performed to tell the TV which channels are available in your area. If this is not done you won't be able to select any channels. Also make sure that the antenna is of the right impedance (i.e. 52ohms) check your manual and see what your TV accepts.
3) Make sure that you are using coxial cable connection and not RCA or HDMI connections as these connections are not designed for an over the air antenna.

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

The calble is connected directly to the tv, not through the cable box & when i try to change the channel it says "no signal" at the bottom left corner. Olevia 32" model 532-b12


I assume from your question that you have a cable subscription and that you have the cable plugged into the ANT input via a co-ax cable. The ANT input is for an antenna for over-the air signals. The channel up/down change the internal tuner up/down. For example, if your cable is set to channel 3, it will pull in the cable on channel 3, but then try to pull in over-the-air if you hit channel-up to channel 4.
It seems you need some kind of converter box from your cable company in order to change the cable channels, and then that converter box would plug into either the ANT input (and leave the tuner on 3) or into one of the other inputs like Component, HDMI, SVideo etc.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

Video 2/3 and Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan
HDMI 1/2 Memory, Digital Caption, V-Guide
OK.

I have a Sanyo DP32648 that keeps losing only one channel in the program. When the TV is turned off, that channel disappears from the program. I have to manually reboot the entire list. How can I solve...


It sounds like there is some electrical noise interference that would not be "fixable". If though, we reconfigure the way that they are connected together, we may be able to avoid the noise.

Instead of allowing the antenna signal to "pass through" the 625 we will skip it.

After following the directions, switching between satellite and antenna will be done by selecting on the SANYO "Input 1" for satellite, and selecting "Ant" for antenna. K?

Try this:

From the 625 Tuner 1- using RCA cables (a.k.a. composite cables, or red, white, yellow cable), connect to "Input 1" on the Sanyo TV. To see composite cables go to http://www.wowvision.tv/settingsandconnections.htm

Next, remove the coaxial cable between the Sat box and TV. (Sanyo "Ant. In" port and 625 "Out to TV" port) Set that cable aside.

Now, remove the incoming antenna cable from the 625 "Ant. In" port, and connect it to the Sanyo's "Antenna In" port.

Finally, scan for channels and check for the presence of CBS.

Once verified, test the TV by turning off and on.

Turn on the satellite receiver and switch Sanyo to "Input 1" to verify sat picture.

I believe this solution will satisfy your needs. Please let me know if it doesn't work, and I will need to talk to you about signal strengths, again.

God bless,
Highdefjeff

Describe how to program channels on lg tv


Very simple -
You will need to find a feature that says 'Auto Tune'

This first will ask you to select between:
1) Regular TV - off air antenna - connection
2) Cable TV - connection
3) DSS TV - Connection

If you aren't ready for digital TV with your antenna or cable you may get very few channels.

17 in. trutech tv unable to get channels except 2-13


For channel setup you will need to;
1) Connect the signal source to the back of the set.(Antenna or Cable)
2) Go into the TV Menu and select the same signal source you connected to the back.(Antenna or Cable)
3) Go to the auto program/scan menu and run it. This may take a few minutes.

Now the channels may be watched.
