LCD TV connection to DVD-VCR


OK here is a possible solution: 1) The best solution: Connect the antenna to your DVD-VCR through the RF Input and the the RF Out to your TV This take care of the VCR part. Then you get an RCA three way cable (Video-yellow marked, Right Audio-Red marked, Left Audio-white marked)connect the yellow marked RCA cord to the Video out of your DVD player then connect the other end to your video in of your TV. Ater that connect the red marked audio cable to the R Audio out of your DVD player to the R Audio in of your TV do the same for the white marked Audio cable. You will now be able to switch from VCR-RF to DVD-RCA.

I have a venturer 19" digital lcd tv -PLV36199S1. Removed cable and brought an antenna. How do I add channels? Can not get ABC and CW


go to the menu button of the tv screen, and proceed to the input signal: u will see air and cable..go to air and scan it first. It should immediately pop up all the channels in your screen depending on the signal strength pulling through the antenna. Repeat the process as needed.

I just bought a m221nv from ebay tv dealer an he said i could jus plug it in in my kitchen, bedrm or ? and watch it via my router cause it has wifi no need connect cable, antenna or anything but i cant get...


The wifi connection will allow you to access content via the Vizio Internet Apps (Netflix for example) but not tv broadcasts.
Your tv can access tv broadcasts (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC) over the air but w/o an external antenna the signal and therefore the quality will probably be weak.
To access cable/direct tv/fios content you will need to connect the tv via a cable.

Two Samsung LA40A450's, purchased within days of eachother, located in two different houses. Last few weeks both families get no sound when switching channels to ABC. Have to reselect ABC maybe a couple...


If you are receiving the signal from the same cable service provider rather than through an antenna, I would suspect the cable service is having a problem with its retransmission of the ABC channel in that suburb. I don't know if Australia is still broadcasting analog TV signals or if ABC is digital, but if the latter, perhaps the receivers are having trouble decoding the sound format identifier information. This could be something as subtle as a timing tolerance issue or as crude as noise or low signal level on the cable that has the receivers operating at the margin of sensitivity.

Jerky video on antenna feed of ABC network programming


You didn't say so but I believe the TV you're using that having the problem is a TV that uses motion compensating frame interpolating technology... a common feature with 120hz and 240hz LCD TVs. I have one of these types of TVs and I have this issue with ABC as well. ABC has begun dropping video frames from some of their primetime shows (the ones that start at the 8e/7c time slot seem most effected) to speed up the broadcast to a point where they can get an extra commercial in. On normal TVs, including the older 60hz LCDs, this is not really noticeable. However, for the motion compensating frame interpolating technology, the TV's video processor must sync up with the 'telecine' processing (conversion from the originally filmed 24fps to broadcast 60fps) so that it can eliminate the copied frames that the telecine processing produces before it can create the interpolated frames between the original frames. When the TV's processor hits a missing frame, it loses sync and has to rejoin and causes the jerky motion you're seeing.

For a solution, you can turn off the motion compensating frame interpolation tech on your TV. Each manufacturer calls it something different but the name will have something to do with smoothing out motion like 'Smooth Motion'. In this case, you need it off for the motion to be it's smoothest (not the case with most TV though).

For a better solution, send a complaint to ABC and your local ABC affiliate.

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)
