Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My cable went out during a storm. When the cable came back on, I was unable to get clear reception on my HD tv. The signal is intermittent and never clear. I am able to use the other connections(DVD, PC, etc.), and the screen is fine. I just can't get a tv signal. The other tv works fine with the cable also. The tv is an Olevia LT26HVX.

    This does not help. My problem is not due to interference or a faulty cable connection.

Do you have separate cable boxes for each tv? Have you tried the other tv on the exact same cable as the tv that is having problems? Please answer the above questions and try connecting the second tv to the same cable if not done already and let me know your findings. Your cable box may have gone bad

Your probably having what cable guys call a SNR ( signal to noise ) issue. There's no way to know unless you call your cable provider. The SNR should be 32 and above with zero pre/post errors. In case you want to ask the tech what they are.

To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.

You can try a different antenna or a signal booster.Or use more than one antenna for picking up signals from different directions and use a diplexer to combie the signal into one.I have a Terk HDTVo and it will pick up stations from 40+ miles away when it is clear,but is choppy during storms.There will be under menu or tools on your remote a diagnostics option that will show signal strength on the chanel you are watching. Well hope this helps.

I have lost my digital satellite reception. All I getting is No Signal or Bad channel.


could be a couple things. First I would check the cable(s) from the dish to the box. Check whether the connections are corroded, but also check the insulation. squirrels, rats mice and birds love to eat the stuff. You have a signal leak somewhere. If everything looks good there, you might check the positioning of the dish itself. maybe it moved during a storm.

Lost signal from the satellite


Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!

Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.

Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!

Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.

So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!

As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.

So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.

If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.

Hope this helps!

Over air reception


Unfortunately, I'm in Australia and not familiar with New York TV transmissions, however, the reception principals are the same.

Your signals are most likely bouncing off walls etc in your apartment with several 'reflections' being picked up by your indoor antenna.

This 'multipath' reception causes errors in the digital signals.

Your receiver can correct a certain amount of errors, but if there are too many, your picture will pixelate and the sound will make loud noises and then you will lose reception altogether.

The fix for this problem is connecting to a roof-mounted antenna and signal distribution system. Most apartment buildings have one, however some only distribute cable channels.

There is a possibility of a fault with your TV, but from what you describe, it sounds like a signal issue.

Have a chat to your building manager and ask what system they use for FTA reception in your building.. perhaps there's a fault that they are not aware of.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck.

Keeps flashing check reception


I unplugged mine, took out the back up batteries, and waited several minutes.

I reinstalled the batteries, plugged it back in, and reset the time.

For now, it seems to have solved the problem.
