Question about Craig Televison & Video

Open Question

Newly purchased Craig CLC 503 says in the instructions that you can connect basic cable via the coax from the wall into the UHF/VHF port on the bottom of the TV. I can find no such port. Nothing else is labeled VHF/UHF and only the RF port will accept coax? How can I connect it to my cable service without having to obtain a converter box? The Craig instructions say that a converter box should not be necessary. Even if I had an extra cable box to what port on the Craig would it connect?

You did not mention which set you have, so look for a small switch (usually on the back of the set) or go into the menu and set the TV to the "broadcast" or "tv" mode. If the set is in the "cable" mode, you will not get any UHF channels above 13.

# 1. Why are you using a digital to anaolg box when you only have a analog signal coming in? The box is designed to see digital information then converting it back to analog. Please explain further what you are attemping to do?

In the menu settings, there are two things you need to change. There is a reception type that you need to change from "AIR" to "CABLE." You also need to set the channel to whatever your cable box is set for (mine is 4).

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

xtreamz_69,

It sounds like you connected the coax cable to your TV. What channel is the TV set on when you have the Freeview connected? Because you are using a coax cable, the TV should be set to either channel 3 or 4 (normally channel 3). Check to make sure your TV is on one of those channels. Also verify your receiver is on. Your TV has the several other type ports (HDMI, component, composite) as alternatives to pick up your picture. If you have any other questions, please post to this site.
