I am not sure that this will work on your TV. But I noticed that the converter boxes work on video mode. You have to try video 1 or 2. I already have 2 boxes, different brands and they work perfectly.

The box broadcasts through channel 3 thus you have to set your tv to channel 3 to pick up the signal. There is a menu to use once you get a singal to pick up the channels. You may also want to call the 1800 number on the back of the remote, they will wallk you through the problem.

No picture after hooking up DTV box, Heart Beat sound


Uninstall the DTV Box and scart leads completley. If the box id new take it back to the store and ask them to connect it to one of their TVs or u connect to another TV in your House. The retailer may swap it if faulty. Other than that, Tap the DTV Box 3 or 4 times on the top, blow out all the connections or use a vacuum cleaner this will clear dust and re connect and re install.

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

After installing the DTV converter box, reception was dropped for most of the stations i received pre-box. now i have added a new antenna. and, i can't get anything through the converter box. connections...


If you have the box connected to the TV using an RF cable to the TV's antenna input, make sure the TV is on channel 3. You should at least see the boxes menu display when the power is on. Try channel 4 if you see nothing on 3. Every box I've hooked up has been on channel 3 by default, but who knows?

If you can, hook the box to the TV using direct video and audio connections, and make sure the TV is set to the correct input.

Unless the box you bought has "RF pass-through" (and if you got your box using a government coupon, it's a sure bet it doesn't) you will notice a marked drop in quality if you try to watch regular broadcasting with the box connected. I've been installing these with a bypass arrangement so people can still watch their analog broadcasts until they go off the air in February.

If the box does in fact have no display when you turn it on and your TV is on the correct channel, your box is defective and should be returned and replaced.

Connecting samsung home theater to samsung lcd tv and direct tv


Need to get more granular on this, Does the volume work HT remote, for like radio, cd, ipod audio? For you to use the tv audio through the HTB the tv's audio settings should be on the "fixed" output option. This gives a line level to the Amp independant of the tvs volume adhjustment. Otherwise you will need to adjust tvs volume 75% or so before the audio amp will reproduce a good volume. Turn down audio amp prior to making any adjustments. Let me know thx

With a cable or DTV converter box hooked up, the only channel the TV will find is channel 3 or 4 (depending on how the box is set). Make sure the set is on the right channel and you should be OK. Also make sure the cable is good. If you have several TV's connected to the same source you might have a bad cable or splitter somewhere in the chain. Hope this helps!
