Hi fixya friends.It's that women again. MY DICK SMITH DTV I still haven't been able to tune in any ABC channels and I've lost channel 10 now!!!!! What the heck am I doing wrong??? I am crazy.


Haha good post. This sounds very much like a weak signal coming into your sets.

First thing to do is to cut the VCR out of the TV input as a trial. Take the antenna input plug out of the VCR and plug it into the TV directly instead of the cable from the VCR to the TV input. If the picture improves then you know the VCR input/output for the signal cable is faulty.

However I think there will not be a change. Digital TV signals need the very best signal you can get in your area, and if a critical inspection is given to the antenna, downlead, and cable to the back of the VCR, something will be found faulty I believe.

In my case I knew the antenna was OK, and had not thought about the cable from the wall to the PVR and TV. All it was, this short cable was poor quality, and - poor pictures on the TV, plus no ABC stations at all.

You need quad shield cable, called "RG6", all the way down, and "F-connectors" at each join as far as possible, maybe also a proper digital aerial, and once all that is OK, then search for new stations by the usual procedure. You will find a good picture, and sadly, reams of rubbish programs.

It is a recommended practice to repeat the channel search routine periodically as the DTV environment is subject to change. Also, the antenna connection to your TV may not provide sufficient signal strength to maintain picture quality. Even weather can be a factor.

Can't tune DTV


Get an amplified antenna, for about 30$ from radioshack and try that, you get no guarantee that you will get stations at all, you can get channels in one spot and two inches away get nothing so a lot of thing affect your reception, with dtv it's gonna work or its not, no more fuzz or semi pictures like analog. Your home may have crappy reception period- but the amplified antenna should get you something- if you get a picture be sure to leave the antenna where it is, moving furniture and other conductive materials can affect your reception also....too much to even write here this is a big subject---try what i have suggested and let me know if it works... good luck

Sony Bravia Digital TV won't tune Channels 350 and 350, can't manual tune wither as it will only accept 2 digit numbers, even though it tunes 201 ...


These numbers are the LCN (Logical Channel Number) assigned by the broadcasters. It will only be at 350 if it is the same channel from a different transmitter. You need to know the 'channel' of the frequency to manually tune it in. You are talking about the program number not the channel (frequency), a common mistake. i.e ABC in Sydney is transmitted on CH12 (226.5Mhz) and the LCN's for each program are 2,21,22,23,24,201 & 201. If your antenna also picks up the signals from the Kings Cross transmitter ABC is CH30 (543.5Mhz), as these are later in the spectrum they are put in the LCN list starting at 350.

We have a LG42lx6500. when you turn it on after being off for a few hours the picture colour is distorted for a couple of minutes before correcting. At times you can see the individual pixels. Sometimes...


Hello

Make sure TV is on the correct channel or input. Check the cables for correct routing from TV to any other devices. Check cables to ensure they are tight and secure.

An analog signal converted to high defintion resolution will cause lines, blurriness or fuzziness in the picture. Change the resolution to a lower or native setting using the media device (cable box, DVD,). This may be an issue that requires a service call to cable provider.

A problem on one channel may just be a error on that channel. If using an antenna, it might need to be adjusted in order to ensure good signal strength. For digtal channels, go into TV Menu. Check the DTV signal. Weak signal can cause picture distortion.

If another device is being used such as a cable box, DVD player or VCR switch between devices and test picture. Check routing of cables that are used to control the image. This should be a series of red, white and yellow cables.

If a VCR with a cable box, make sure the VCR and TV are set to the correct channels for video signal to pass through. If problem is still occuring, try another set of cables. bad cables can cause picture distortion.

Bad cables can cause picture distortion as well. Try another set of cables. If picture is better than when using the cables replaced, this was the issue. If cables are not an issue TV may require service.

Don't get ABC or NBC local channels anymore


ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.

Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.

When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.

Had the same problem. Digging through the manual I came across a paragraph (at the top of page 24 - DTV Features) saying "if you have selected DTV then it will only display the DTV menu. (I didn't actually select DTV - we can't even get DTV in our area, but the ASP programduring startup appears to have set it!
You have to press the Volume +/- buttons on the remote, then the Input button and it will bring up the input menu. There you can select a different input. Once I did this, I found it had both my TV channels tuned and my satellite channel!
Now my problem is I can't control on/off or volume with the Sky controller - which is why I'm trawling the forums!!
