Connecting antenna cable and cable from cable company

Hi, I just purchased this TV. It only has one coax antenna input plus other RCA type inputs. I plan to connect it to an external HDTV antenna to receive true HDTV and would also like to connect it to my Charter cable company cable service. I do not want to rent one of their boxes since I get all the cable channels (non-HDTV though) for free thru the basic cable running to every room in my house. How can I connect both coax cables to this HDTV? Thanks. Tom

I have a hdmi rca tv, unhooked the digital cable box for awhile went to hook it back up and can't get any channels scanning picks up nothing what should I have the setting set to? Hdmi set to cable


If you have a cable box the channels are selected via the cable box remote and the TV is set to an HDMI video input. The specific input is identified where the HDMI cable connects from the box.

Use the video input remote to select the HDMI for the cable box.

Scanning is for identifing the over the air stations that use the coax input noted as antenna (ANT IN) on the back of the set.

Hope this helps?

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

Cant connect a rca soundbar to my emerson tv


If your Emerson TV has a digital coax output connector identified as such and your RCA soundbar has a digital coax input connector, you will have to purchase an appropriate cable and connect it. Some soundbars, such as Vizio, have left and right RCA audio inputs to match similar outputs on a TV set.

Can you turn coax into rca cables since the maxent I have doesnt have a coax input


You can but the connection type is not the problem. If you have Coax cable or antenna type signal you need to put that into a tuner capable of providing the RCA (baseband or composite) video out with RCA audio as well. However if one is going that route with a HD display then the SVHS tyoe connector or even HDMI or some component level cables should be used to get the full benefit of the HD signal.
If your HDTV has no Coax input then it is not a TV but a display
device more like what is used in computers.

I recently purchased an LG RH397D dvd recorder> Ihave now discovered taht it will not receive the new free view channels and I need a HD set top box. How to I connect the set top box to the dvd...


Hi, The set top box will more than likely have two coaxial connectors ( threaded/ribbed pieces of metal ) coming out of the back. also three R.C.A. connectors-these will be smooth and be colored yellow red and white. one of the coax connectors will say " IN FROM ANT> or CABLE IN) the other ( OUT TO T.V. ) hook up your dvd recorders " ANTENNA " input to the set top box's ANTENNA output. If your D.V.D. recorder doesn't have an antenna input then hook up the recorders audio/video input to the set top box's audio/video output. then you should be good to go. If you buy a H.D.T.V. tuner to receive FREE H.D. programming it may be possible to hook up to recorder with H.D.M.I. cables.( those connections resemble slots ) I hope this has been of some assistance, good luck, Prodzilla.

I have a 2 tuner tv. When Cablevision installed my digital cable box, I lost the 2 tuner capability. Is there a special way it needs to be hooked up to get back the 2 tuner capability?


Your cable system is probably QAM (digital cable). The tuners built into the TV are analog and digital OTA tuners (ATSC and NTSC). If you connect the Cablevision box to the component video input (and connect the audio out of the box to the appropriate audio in) on the TV and an appropriate antenna to the coax (antenna) input, you will be able to swap use the tuners in the TV. (See tvfool.com for antenna types and direction or antennaweb.org for directions of the most likely stations to be received at your location. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is conservative in the list it provides.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(please note, you probably need to get the component video cables. These have 3 RCA plugs on each end (red, green and blue). To carry the audio you need a cable with 2 RCA plugs on each end (red and white). Match the colors as you connect them.)

Type of cable from wall cable outlet to tv plus what imput to use Thanks


coax cable and the input on most sets is "TV" use the input button to cycle through the choices. You may need to programm TV to see cable. Go into TV menu look for channel setup. there will be reference to whether you are using air(antenna) or cable. also you must "autoprogram" so TV will lock onto channels that are available.look for that option as well in setup. good luck

I have a customer on the phone who has a olevia flat screen and can not locate an input for his cable wire. where are they located?


here are the only signal inputs located at the back of the tv.
1 x HDMI input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A )
2 x component video input ( RCA phono x 3 )
1 x VGA input ( 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) )
Audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 )
2 x S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN )
2 x composite video/audio input ( RCA phono x 3 )
1 x headphones ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm )
1 x SPDIF output ( TOS Link )
1 x audio line-out ( RCA phono x 2 )
1 x subwoofer output ( RCA phono )
1 x serial

If you are looking for a coaxial cable input.. it is actually not available so you have to connect a converter from coax cable to RCA cable for you to connect it on your tv.

Where is the cable connection on my tv


There are usually two types of cables that connect to your tv-- coax and RCA. Cable usually uses the coax style, but some modern tvs don't have a coaxial input, which means they probably have RCA jacks. Therefore, you will probably have to find an RF modulator or the like that has a coax cable "Cable" input and RCA (yellow, white, and red plugs) output. These should be able to connect your tv to cable. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom
