Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

Some months back I received 2 TV Convertor Box tickets.I put them aside to wait for the U.S. government to send me the $600.00 check I had applied for. By the time the check arrived,the tickets had expired and now that I have the money to buy the convertor boxes,the tickets (value $40.00) have expired and no one dealer will accept them. They are still here still packaged as received and except for the expiration factor of no value. Can you get these replaced with useable tickets??

    The converter box coupons expire if they are not redeemed within 90 days.

    More than 100 retailers have been certified to participate in the converter box program, including Best Buy Co Inc (BBY.N: Quote, Profile, Research), Circuit City Stores Inc (CC.N: Quote, Profile, Research), RadioShack Corp (RSH.N: Quote, Profile, Research), Sears Holdings Corp (SHLD.O: Quote, Profile, Research), Target Corp (TGT.N: Quote, Profile, Research) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N: Quote, Profile, Research).

    The government began mailing coupons on February 21. As of June 3, it had received requests for more than 16 million coupons, McGuire-Rivera said in a prepared statement.

    But extra coupon mailings could be needed because many people who applied for them did not use them before they expired.

    Only 42 percent of the coupons sought by consumers were being redeemed before they expired, according to NTIA figures.

    Funds for expired, unredeemed coupons are being returned to the subsidy program and will be available so more coupons can be mailed.

    But McGuire-Rivera said, "The program currently has limited administrative funds to distribute additional numbers of coupons that might be issued from the returned funds."

    The NTIA issued a statement after the hearing saying it "has no plans to ask Congress for any additional funds."

    A more accurate forecast of the costs would be possible sometime after July 1, when NTIA gets further redemption information.

Under current government rules, consumers with expired coupons cannot reapply for new ones

This probably caused by 2 or more bad capacitors. Look online for instructions for soldering in new ones from Radio Shack. Replace with higher capacitance & voltage.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Unable to receive picture since change over


I'm sure that the converter instruction guide said to do this but determine whether both the converter and TV are set to the same frequency; the converter's output frequency and the TV's input should both be either channel 3 or 4.
With the converter's remote, press the 'Menu' button to make sure the converter has some kind of known output, then change the TV's channel to each of the two channels above.

Panasonic DVR, loss of TV Guide on-screen program listings


Hi,

I had the TVGUIDE listing through my GE TV and it came across with a notice that they would no longer be putting out the listings. That was last year and the listing never showed up again. Your DVR may be recording digitally but if you can see it on a analog tv, it is using a analog turner and you will need a converter box to record once everything goes digital.

Most of the digital converter boxes come with a guide built in. I have the Magnavox and the Zenith and they work fine. You will need two converter boxes, one for the DVR and one for the tv, if you want to watch the tv and record a different show at the same time.

I would hook them up by splitting the antenna wire to the tv and the DVR. Then I would use the RCA plugs to connect the DVR to the TV and use the Input setting on the TV when I want to watch the DVR. You will have to set the converter box to the channel that is playing the program you want. The DVR will be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the converter box is set on to broadcast on) to record on, not the broadcast channel. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off or the converter box will turn off after a couple hours and you will get no picture for the dvr to record on.

The digital signal is being sent over the air usually over UHF channels. It sent digitally but will be picked up by your antenna in the same way it picks up the analog signal thus there is no difference. There is no such thing as a digital antenna, thus a antenna from a Home Depot will work fine. I needed a outdoor antenna but the picture quality is the same as cable. Just make sure the antenna can pick up UHF and VHF signals.

Hope it helps!

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.

Dvd player and analog tv


You're not trying to use the "Tuner" in the ILO are you? Bypass it and use the A/V cables from the "out" of the converter box. I think mine also has the coax type cable from the "to tv" to the ILO, then from the "to tv" on the ILO to the television. Either way should work. Mine works great, its a zenith and I have successfully recorded to discs in my ILO. Just change the Source back to the DVD source to watch a dvd or select the corresponding A/V connections that are hooked to your convertor box to watch/record television.

Dvdrecorder and convertor box


If the clarification request is correct. The only thing i can suggest is. Plug aerial into converter box. plug converter box into TV using either scart or coaxial cable. then connect converter box to dvd recorder using scart or coaxial cable depending on what you used to plug converter box into TV with. Then plug dvd recorder into TV. I don't know if you have to set-up the converter box to start receiving i'm not sure. But try this anyway.
You'd probably have been better off getting a free-view box and your dvd recorder. Because as long as you've got a free-view box you'll always get digital. Hope this helps
