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,

Do I need a digtal converter box to pick up local stations via antenna?


Some local broadcasting will still be in analog but this is just jor simple programming such as college stations. To get local programming such as NBC,ABC,CBS etc. you will need to get a converter since the government has mandated all broadcast be in digital to free up air space.

Note that it may be a case by case basis for some smaller areas.

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.

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

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.

Don't get ABC or NBC local channels anymore


ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.

Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.

When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.
