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

What do I need to do to get ready for the Digital TV transition?


Hi perplexa, I am happy to help. With an old tv that only has a analog receiver you will need to buy a Digital Conversion Set Top Box, this a device that is able to receive digital signals, the cost of thew box runs from $40 to several hundred dollars, the basic box is all you need though, it comes with a remote and several different ways to connect it to your tv. Fortunately the government is offering coupons for $40 dollars off the price of the boxes. That's the good news, now for the bad, The funds for the coupons have been exhausted, you will now have to put your name on a waiting list and wait for already issued coupons to expire. Here is a link to get on the waiting list. https://www.dtv2009.gov/
Once you receive your coupon, it can be redeemed on line or at a local store eg: Walmart. You will also need a antenna which I assume you already have and you are set to watch Digital TV. If you need information on antennas go to this site. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Enjoy your digital experience and let me know if I can provide further assistance. Lone99star

Will the JVC TV model AV-27820 mfg 1997 become obsolete i n February?


It will still work fine if you have cable or satellite. If you are using an antenna to receive broadcast signal you will need to get a digital converter box from an electronics store like Best Buy. You can get discount coupons from the federal government good for 40 dollars towards the converter. Google "Digital Covnverter Coupon Program" and it should give you a link to the site to apply for up to 2 coupons.

Best wishes

How do i get surrond sound for just tv shows


surround sound only comes over the digital out on back of the TV or better, on back of the Verizon boc, itll be a orange RCA jack I believe or the fiber TOS link, These go into your receiver into the same style jack. Digital in may only be associated with the DVD input. if your tv has a HDMI input, you can use the HDMI cable from the convertor box to the TV and then the digital out on the TV into the receiver, but I like the digital out to go straight to the receiver from the convertor box. HDMI tpo the TV will allow you to watch TV on the internal speakers if you dont want to use the amp.

Thomson digital receiver


hi i think you might have the wrong software on the box,turn you tv on and put it on the sky channel take your viewing card out of the stb turn the box off then take the power lead out, wait till the stb powers down then put your finger on the backup button keeping it pressed put the power lead back in and holding the backup button wait till the on screen message comes on your tv, wait till the tv screen goes blank then put your card back in turn your box back on and try to record 2 channels at the same time this should solve the problem. if not it will be the cable or the quad lnb.

TV will not turn off


Wow.. How is the TV plugged in? I had someone with a Samsung DLP do this but hers was plugged into the cable box that was plugged into the surround sound receiver which was plugged into a back up which was finally plugged into the wall. Feedback caused an electrical feedback causing really really odd tendencies.

Second, that connetion between panel and set has a row if pins make sure the second one is not bent because it could be on permanently or causing it to have a constant connection . It is so hard to explain this hope this helps.
