Did the manuals that came with the tuner give any "trouble-shooting" hints about "first-time-setup" ?

I'm recording a movie with your vcr, DVR620KU. Is there any way to watch another tv station at the same time? I cant' find any answer in the booklet. Thx.


The DVR620KU doesn't have a tuner; see https://www.crutchfield.com/S-0n5sO0paa6L/p_052DVR620/Toshiba-DVR620.html for the specifications. What's the source for your recording? Does your TV have a tuner (ATSC)?

OTA signal with a TV with an ATSC tuner: If you have a digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) over-the-air converter box sending the NTSC signal to the DVR620, then the answer is maybe. Some models offer a pass-through feature when you daisy-chain the RF input. You will need to enable the feature in the setup menu of the converter box. Other models only pass-through the signal when the converter box is off. If you have a strong incoming signal, you can try using a splitter to feed both the TV and the converter box. (However, this will attenuate the signal to each tuner and even an amplifier/splitter combination may not allow enough digital signal for each tuner to resolve weak channels.)

For other set-top boxes (cable, satellite, etc.), it will depend on if you have multiple tuners available.

Please add a comment with more details about your A/V setup for more information.

Can my Olivia LCD LT26 be hooked to an indoor had antennae? Once antennae hooked up what are next steps?


Yes. Depending on your location depends on how well it will work. If you are in the US you can go to antennaweb.org and get a fairly accurate idea if an indore antenna will work and what you can expect to receive. After you connect your antenna you need to do a channel search.

Can I connect two tv to one television converter box to watch local channels


If neither TV has a digital TV tuner, you will only be able to watch one channel on both TVs with one converter box. You will also need some sort of RF repeater if you want the person in the second room to change the station without moving the box. You will need a splitter/amplifier connected to the converter box TV out. (I'll assume you are using the coax out.) If you will only watch one TV at a time, then use an A/B switch on the converter box TV out.

If one of the TVs has a digital tuner, put the splitter/amplifier between the antenna and the converter box and the TV with the digital tuner.

Note: amplifier/splitters and switches do fail. If you get a "no signal" message, take out the splitter and connect the converter box directly to the antenna or one of the TVs depending on your set up.

I hope this helps.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

How do i get hd channels with no cable ? just antenna


If your TV has a digital tuner, you can get any HD channels if you use the correct antenna pointed at the transmitter and are close enough to the transmitters. (Antennas labeled as HD are not always appropriate for your location.) Your TV will downgrade the signal to 480i if the TV can't support a 720p or 1080i resolution.

First where do you live? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to determine the correct placement of your antenna for your area/stations. AntennaWeb uses a very conservative signal strength calculation despite assuming an external antenna. Tvfool will give the antenna color rating which is also provided on the antenna package. When properly installed (with no trees or hills blocking the signal), the matching antenna should receive the listed channel.

If you use a splitter to share the signal with several TVs, you may need an amplifier to bring the signal strength to that needed for the tuner to interpret the digital signal. (Note: amplifiers and splitters can fail and the amplifier may become a signal filter blocking the signal; test the antenna strength on a direct connection if there is a problem.)

If you do not have a digital tuner in the TV, you may have gotten an SD digital to analog converter. These are the more common (and available with the government coupon) converters. You will need to get an HD capable tuner to see the full HD signal.

Please add a comment with your TV model and antenna choice for additional support.

(antennaweb indicates that my external antenna should only get the stations 10 miles away. We actually receive the channels from 30 miles away. We use an amplifier splitter to feed the signal to several TVs. I set up two indoor antennas for a neighbor's TVs. One gets the signals from the transmitters 30 miles away and the other from the transmitter 10 miles away. Both get HD from the stations with HD broadcast (not all channels are in HD here). The difference is totally due to antenna placement.)

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

Can't pick up ant ditgital signals,why not


First what make/model of TV do you have? Does it have a digital tuner? (Manufactures had to add digital tuners at various times depending on the TV size)

Next what type of antenna or cable (basic, digital) do you have and how is it connected to the TV? Is it an indoor or outdoor antenna and is it pointed at your area stations? See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for details on where your local OTA stations are. (Note: antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in their list.) Antennas can be turned by the wind.

Do you have an amplifier or a splitter in the system?

First, remove the amplifier or splitter and try a direct connection to the TV. (I've had amplified splitters turn into signal filters after they failed. Then they gave no signal out from certain bands. Many areas only have UHF digital stations.)

Next check your cables for damage and try replacing cables. (I recently had a cable in the wall get damaged and had to rewire that outlet. The TV got good signal if I ran a direct line across the floor to another coax jack.) Alternatively, try connecting the TV to a different coax jack.

The final thing to check is the TV's inputs. They can fail. (I lost a few analog TV tuners to a lightning surge.)

I hope this helps.

How do you connect the antenna and get channels to work?


First make sure that your Input is TV. Use the Input button on the remote (to the right of 0) or on the side of the TV (lowest button). To watch OTA channels, after connecting the appropriate antenna for your location with a coaxial cable to your Antenna In port, press Menu then use the arrows to select the Setup submenu. Press Enter to access the submenu and select Installation. Then select Terrestrial and then Input Configuration. Here select Antenna as your input. Press Enter to save. Then scan for channels by returning to the Terrestrial sub menu and select Channel Program to scan all available channels.

Since digital signals are either sufficient for your tuner to interpret or give No Signal, you need to select your antenna and point it with care. Go to anntennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get information on the stations that you should be able to get in your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but still gives a conservative list of available stations. TVfool gives stations depending on the color code of the antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplified) and their directions. If you are sharing the antenna signal with multiple TVs, you may need an amplified splitter. (If you do have an amplifier, you may want to test removing it from the line and directly connecting the 37HL17 to the antenna. When amplifiers get damaged they can turn into signal filters which block the signal completely.)

If you have the correct antenna, check if another TV receives the stations. If so, you may have a bad tuner on the TV. (Some TVs have better tuners than others and pick up the stations even with lower signal strength.)

I hope this helps.

(I use an outdoor antenna and antennaweb indicates that I should only get the stations from 10 miles away. I actually get those from 30 miles away as well. When I set up a neighbor's TVs with indoor antennas, one only gets the stations 10 miles away and the other gets the stations that are 30 miles away. The two antennas couldn't be rotated to the same direction.)

I have the box installed and on. Now what do I do to get the local stations on my TV


What box - satellite/cable/digital-to-analog converter? This tv has a digital (ATSC) tuner built in. So if you are looking for OTA channels, use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to find out what direction to point your antenna and what antenna you need. Then connect the antenna's coax cable to your TV. Antennaweb is very conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna. tvfool.com will list several more channels and the different antennas that are needed for various distances between your location and the station transmitters.

If you are sharing one antenna between several tvs or tv and other devices, you may need an amplifier in addition to the splitter. (Unfortunately, these can get damaged by surges as well. I've lost certain channels after a lightning strike turned the amp into a filter for one part of the RF signal spectrum.)

Once you have the antenna connected and pointing in the direction of the desired station, you will need to scan for channels. If this is the first time the tv is set up, you will be prompted for menu language, the input type and then asked if you want the TV to auto-scan for channels. Otherwise, hit Menu, use the left and right arrows to get to the Channels menu option and press the + button in the center of the arrow keys. Next use the up and down arrows to set the incoming signal (if needed) - the item is labeled Cable and is a Yes/No (again press + to select item and to enter the change). Continue down to the Auto-program and let that run. You can add/remove channels from the resulting listing with the Channel Skip/Add option just below Auto-program.

I hope this helps.
