My tv keeps going off. seems like it does it on commercials but does it at other times too. I had a faulty DirecTV HD receiver that seemed to start the problem, but I have a different receiver hooked up to it now. but the tv is still turning off.
First make sure that the plug of the tv-device is well pluged-in and the voltage in your home is normal.if all this, is ok ,enter in the menu and check the status of `timer sleep`(if `on `than turn it `off`)

2. Locate the 5-digit code for your TV (see pages 13-16). 3. Move the slide switch to TV. 4. Press and hold in the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the TV icon flashes twice and then release both keys. 5. Using the number keys enter the 5-digit code for your brand of TV. If performed correctly the green light under TV will flash twice. 6. Aim the remote at your TV and press the power key once. The DIRECTV Receiver should turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each code for your brand until you find the correct code.
Use your Directv remote. Use code 10812, remember to program it to change tv inputs also. then program the same remote to control volume on your Sony receiver. Go to the menu on the directv box and follow the onscreen instructions.
If you go to Directv.com and go to the remote control programming section you can put in the make and model of the tv and it will usually come up with a specific code that may work. I hope this helps a little bit. :)
This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...
... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...
1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...
ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
Are you using the AV outputs on the Receiver and not the composite grn-red-blue. Do you have the converter jack on the back by the ant. input? what souce on the set are you using for PIP and your main screen?
Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
