37" LG 1080p

On some stations the picture and sound are breaking up - like a mosaic. It seems to be mostly on the broadcast channels (ABC, NBC, etc.), not the cable channels.

Hi ks0412,

If you are receiving a High-Definition (HDTV) signal through an over-the-air broadcast, you may see this kind of mosaic-like breakup of the picture and sound if the signal is weak or interrupted. This is the same way that you would receive snow and static with an analog signal in the past. I would suggest readjusting your antenna for better reception on the channels that are giving you trouble.

If you are receiving this broken signal from a subscription-based service such as cable or satellite, I would recommend contacting your service provider for assistance. It could be a problem with the signal, your equipment, or the equipment setup.

Thank you,
Jason,

We have an antenna, digital converter box, and digital tv. Can only get 5 channels. No nbc, abc, cbs. Get the message indicator available for digital broadcasting only


You should be able to use the box remote and select channel search mode. As it searches, you will see it "hit" available channels and store them. When channel search is finished, you should see a picture displayed. if no results, there is something wrong with the antenna, the way it is connected to the box, the way the box is connected to the TV, or the way the TV is connected to the box. You may have to reread the instructions to find what is at fault.

We have a vizio vo370m, and instead of being on 1080 the setting is on 720. how do i fix that


What is the source of the signal? If the signal is from ABC, Fox, or ESPNHD, the broadcast is is 720p. Similarly, many older dvd players only provide 720 resolution (those that do not have the up-conversion to 1080 feature).The choice of cables may matter.

So if you are watching HD cable or satellite or OTA Digital TV, try a different channel.
CBS, NBC, PBS and DiscoveryHD provide 1080i. However, not all stations with these networks broadcast in 1080i OTA. (There will only be one sub-channel with the 1080 signal if your local affiliate broadcasts in that resolution.) An XBox will also give 1080i.

Blue-ray players and the Play Station 3 provide 1080p signal to a TV that can handle the signal.

If your source is a computer. what OS and video card is providing the signal? The resolution available will depend on what your computer can provide. Check the specs for the computer. This is more of an issue for older video cards and low end older computers with on-board video. The computer will only give a 1080 output in the 1920x1080 mode at 60Hz. For Windows, you can reset this either with the video card software or by right clicking on the desktop (anywhere without an icon or running program). Restart the computer to get the mode to synch in some situations.

I hope this helps.

Digital channel 25 has no sound.


First make sure SAP or nothing similar is turned on.

After you triple check that just Contact ILO if it continues for more than 1month. This is a software error.

What state are you in?
What channel is this?NBC, ABC
Have you check this at different times of day?
What TV does your son have?

Sound problems with Insignia Flat Screen 37


It may be that the set is set for alt sound. go to the menu and set the audio to stereo. If the audio is set wrong it thinks you are set for spanish and if the broadcast is not in an alt language there will be no sound.

Audio vs Video


Happens mostly on your local channels right? This is a issue with the local broadcaster and not directv. Due to the digital transition this has been a widespread issue. Until the local affiliate for NBC, ABC, etc. fully transmit a digital signal then this sync problem is to be expected.
