Toshiba Digital High Definition Receiver HD-C26H Locking-up

Dear Sir
I have Toshiba Digital HD Receiver HD-C26H which is constantly locking-up. I have an external HD antenna connected and it is connected to a Panasonic HD Plasma TV via HDMI cable.
The set top box locks up about every 20 minutes to half an hour and the only way to unlock it is to pull the power cable out.
Could anybody give me some information on how to stop this happening or do I have to purchase another unit. (Hopefully not!)
Many thanks Peter

It may be ic chip problem. If persists better take it to an authorized service station to inspect the tuner.

Is the receiver in a well ventilated area? Overheating can cause such problems.

    What model TV do you have? It might have its own ATSC receiver built in and you might not need a seperate receiver.

    Another possible cause is power fluctuation. Say for example that your receiver is on the same circuit as your refrigerator. Everytime the fridge would start up there could be a power drain large enough to cause the receiver to lock up. Try to eliminate as many other appliances and equipment from the circuit or get a Universal Power Supply (Battery Backup) or a power conditioner.

Is RCA TV Model L40FHD41YX9 a high definition tv ?


It has a 1080p display panel (Full HD) and also supports 24p for the optimum way to display Blu-ray. So in these respects it is a high definition TV.

The built in TV tuner may or may not receive HD broadcasts though. That doesn't change the TVs ranking as a HDTV. It just means you might need an external HDTV tuner to get the same kind of quality from TV broadcasts as Blu-ray and console gaming.

Hope this helps.

MY SONIQ DIGITAL TV KEEPS FREEZING IN EAST PERTH ; I HAVE TO GET UP AND TURN OFF THE POWER AT THE WALL ; IT THEN COMES ON OK ; WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN .


hello there,

I believe the main problem is the Cable TVs Receiver is locking up on you this can happen when receivers are going bad or need a software update also it could be getting some bad power from the wall jack .

i would try updating the software if you can then if that doesn't work i would reset the receiver at the unit it self if it keeps locking up on you then i would get a new one .

i hope this was helpful don't forget to Rate

Hd-Fox T2 Displays InSt how do I get to Installation Wizard


Hi geroncolm my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network. The dual HD receivers allow for TV1 to show in standard and high definition. On the TV2 it will show in SD format only, even if the TV is a HDTV. We do have System Wizard and you will need to be in front of TV1 and hold down the 0 button on the remote for 10 seconds, it will enter the system wizard. Once you enter System Wizard it will allow you to reformat the remote.

Sat finder detects signal on 61.5 Sat but receiver does not display or lock.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. The 61.5 Satellite carries mostly High Definition programming. If your Satellite Dish is an older model, it is not equipped to bring that Satellite in. It is the part on the Dish called the LNBF (the eyes) that will pick up the satellites. Your receiver is a Standard Definition, you should be reading the 119 & 100 Satellites. I hope this helped but if you have additional questions, please let me know.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?


LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

I have a Motorola High Definition Digital Receiver DCT6200 and the red record icon is not visible


The DCT6200 is not a recorder. You need a 6416 or 6412 model for DVR function.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
