Dear FixYa,

We have installed a Grundig STB but cannot figure out how to use our VCR or DVD Player.

Do we need extra sockets ? Of is there a simple solution we have missed.

Sincerely

Suzann T.

Since your TV is not coming with HDMI, the only way you can connected is trough CONVERTER ANALOG TO DIGITAL.

You can buy surface by Internet, or Radio Schack, or Computer Stores.

TRYING TO INSTALL DIGITAL SET-TOP BOX WITH DVD AND TV


Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers

Failed tv reception after about an hour????


Witout knowing your set up I can only guess at the set top box getting hot and failing.
Is the Teac box well ventillated? If not, put it somewhere where it can get cool air (ie not enclosed in a TV cabinet for instance).
I doubt it's your antenna if it works for a while, but you maty want to have your coax connection checked out. If you use a booster, that may be failing.
Sorry I can't be of any further use.

Poor antenna reception


That's a problem with the digital broadcasting. Signal strength is critical, and the frequencies used are more directional. Some people are finding they get no reception at all. Your antenna may not need to be higher, but aimed in a different direction. Did you have a rotator installed as well? An outside antenna really should be pointed toward the station. You might also be able to add an amplifier to the antenna to boost the signal. But get a mast-mounted version that mounts right at the antenna, not the kind that goes at the TV set.

Intermittent reception with DTV converter box


Hello,

I install at least 2-3 antennas a week. While Analog stations were no big deal when it came to reception, Digital signals are very directional, and can be very fickle about reception sometimes. Digital is "all or nothing," meaning that if you get enough signal to get a picture, then great, but if you don't, it won't allow you to even try to make the picture.

My suggestion is to first try a 15-25 dB amplifier (with an FM trap) on the antenna. Use it first in-line, immediately following the antenna, before it is fed to any TV's. If that doesn't help, try re-aiming the antenna directly toward the city from which your signals are being broadcast. You'd be suprised how little you have to turn it to make a big difference.

Give these two things a shot. Hope this helps you...

No antenna reception with digital converter box.


Hello Faznmc,

I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.

I hope this helps
Thank you,
