My screen keeps telling me to auto scan channels?


This is for basic cable TV. If you have basic cable, go ahead and let it scan channels. If you have digital cable or anything else and use a INPUT or HDMI or RCA to watch TV then just ignore the scan channels prompt as you have a cable box that handles all that for you.

How too hook surround system to regular tv. Example : a football game. Thanks


Well, since the "regularTV" has no make or model number I will have to guess what outputs it has to suit your surround sound system which also has no make or model number! Using outputs that show left and right speaker channels wire each to the left and right speaker channels of the surround sound amplifier. How many, I don't know!

Hi. I have recently purhased an Acoustic Solutions DVDRW300 DVD Recorder. I have no instruction manual and have no idea how to set it up or work it!! Please help as im totally useless!!


Hello!
I am assuming that you want to INPUT your TV/Cable Box to your DVDRW, and have the DVDRW then be able to OUTPUT to the TV.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Locate the OUTPUTS of your TV/Cable box at the back of your set. There should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI . Make sure that they are OUTPUTS. It'll probably say TV-out or just out.

2. Locate the INPUTS of your DVDRW. Similarly, it should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI. Ensure that they are INPUTS.

3. Match up the outputs to the inputs. Now, I have listed the OUTPUT/INPUTS going from lowest quality to highest quality. So let's say your TV has RCA, S-Video and HDMI outputs, and your DVDRW has only RCA and S-Video. HDMI is ruled out, unless you get a converter (which is pretty pricey). Choose which one, and buy/use the right cables.

4. Here are the connections for each type of OUT/IN. (TV/Cable >>>>> DVDRW)
  • RCA (Yellow/White/Red) >>>>> RCA (Yellow/White/Red)
  • S-Video + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> S-Video + RCA (White/Red)
  • VGA + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> VGA + RCA (White/Red)
  • DVI + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> DVI+ RCA (White/Red)
  • HDMI >>>>> HDMI
5. Connecting the DVDRW back to the TV. So now, you can record whatever is playing live on your TV. But you also want to play things from your DVDRW on your TV. Check the OUTPUTS of the DVDRW. It should have either the same jacks as the INPUTS. Check the INPUTS of the TV.
6. Follow Step 4, and 5. Note that for connections, you are going from the OUT of the DVDRW to one of the INs of the TV. Keep track of what INPUT on the TV you are connecting to.
Voila! Let's test it, though. Now, turn your TV and DVDRW on. Put in a DVD (a movie perhaps) in your DVDRW. On your TV, switch the channel to the INPUT channel you used. You should see your movie. If not, try another INPUT on your TV.
If it's fine, then let's try recording a TV show. Switch the channel on your TV to whatever you want to watch, say Cartoon Network. Put in a blank DVD in your player/recorder. Hit record on the player. Let it record about 2-3 minutes, and stop recording.
Switch the TV back to the INPUT which works, and hit play on the DVDRW. You should see what you recorded.
Hope this helps!

Good Afternoon, I have no cable where i live now, but i have a analog converter box, how do i install it to my tv to get local channels?


you install the cable wire into the box or antena into the box then the cable or rca cables into the tv. set the tv input to the right input (usually channel 2 or 3 for a cable) or input one for the rca cables then you need to hit the scan option on your converter box to scan for the channels and the tv to scan for the channels. please let me know if this works

I have a magnavox sdtv tuner can I hook cable line that still has cable come threw the box


Yes. You may enter through the RF connections. Be sure your TV is on channel three or sometimes channel four.You must be in the same channel on the cable box. You will receive all channels the box is capable of receiving. If your TV has RCA connections in the back and the cable box also has RCA jacks...you can opt for an input in the TV. Inputs can generally give you a better picture and sound. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box


There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

The channel information/display won't stop popping up every few seconds.


What you all need to do is get away from a coax cable connection. If you have a cable box, or satellite box, take the coax cable off and use red, white, n yellow rca composite cables to connect your recievers to the tv. if you dont have a cable box, either get one, or get a converter box and use a tuner outside of the tuner within the unit. The tuners in those tv's are built to show you when you experience signal fluctation(which is normal with a coax cable) and thats why the box keeps popping up on its own. good louck to you all with this problem

Green box keeps popping up in upper right corner


You should be watching your dvd's on an input and not on tv analog 3. Every time the tv "senses" a signal change in the audio that screen will pop up. Connect the DVD player to the tv by using either the red, white and yellow (composite) connections or using the green, blue, red, white and red (component). Once you are on an actual input that box will stop popping up.

Have cable.........but not working


The GE (actually RCA) 31GT659 has the notorious CTC187 chassis. This chassis developes cracks in the solder joints on the shields around the tuner and microprocessor, and can mess up the settings stored in the EPROM IC. This could result in channels going snowy, vertical collapse, loss of sound and/or total shut-down. The set should be resoldered and reprogrammed by someone experienced with this RCA chassis.
