Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television
Came home to SW Florida from a trip and a weird thing hapenned I just can't get a grip on.
I have a series 2 Tivo and a Sony HD XBR. I'm new to the area so for now all I've been using is rabbit ears and the five basic channels I've been getting has been just fine.
It looks like in mid-recording of something all went blank, so no wires or anything were adjusted and, besides, I was away at the time....
anyway, here's more details:
*Obviously, the antenna is hooked into the TIVO
* I can still see previous programs recorded on the Tivo so that connection from Tivo to TV is working fine
*The Tivo looks for a signal when I unplug the antenna and doesn't when I have it plugged in, so it recognizes the antenna.
*When I plug the antenna directly into the TV it registers "no signal".
*I went out and bought new rabbit ears thinking it had to be that piece of hardware. It wasn't. Everything stayed the same.
All I can imagine now is that all the broadcast stations in the area aren't delivering signals over the airwaves! Not likely.
Well if multiple devices are unable to find a signal, then I would definitely try calling the broadcasting stations and see if anything happened at that time when you lost the signal. Since it was during a show you should be able to narrow down the time easily enough. An antenna is so basic that it really shouldn't ever have problems, you could use a wire or coathanger and get a tv signal. If you have a second tv or a friend who can bring one over and test it with the antenna, then that will further narrow it down to which I believe the stations are out. We had a station out for 3 days up here once but the rest still worked. I've never heard of anything like this before. I could understand if one device can't find the signal. Stations don't always realize they aren't broadcasting until someone calls in. It wouldn't hurt anyway and I would be very interested to find out what is wrong once you get it working. The only other possibility is that you had a powersurge while you were gone or a power outage. Try resetting all devices by unplugging them (the tv for 8 hours). Also, did the Tivo continue to record when the signal was lost or does it seem like it was shut off, that would be a big indicator of what happened. Please update me on this, thanks and good luck
