HEllo Kevin,
As you say the Tv is purchased in a hotel auction the remote can be of different model from the TV..Hotels are notorious for guests "losing" remotes and replacements are often not the exact type for the model with no access to the tuning/setup menu...
Or the menu may be locked out if the set has a Hotel mode...Also check for a Lock icon next to a couple of the options in the list..IF it appears then You can be sure the menu is locked for tuning!!!..

Thank you..Please post back for further assistance !!..

Regards!!!...

I did not quite understand what you meant by "connected differently than normal".. Please use the post image option to post an image so that we can understand better. Looks like its a pay tv connection though.

I can't get FOX on my converter box--what is the channel # for FOX?


It could be your antenna. Some retailers sold consumers UHF-only outdoor antennas and not VHF/UHF combo antennas. Other outdoor antennas may not have a power boost included for the VHF antennas (rabbit ears). The new DTV signals from stations are now broadcasting in lower power signals than before June 12.

Outdoor Antenna


KMSP/FOX 9 and KARE 11 both broadcast on VHF signals. WCCO and KSTP broadcast on UHF signals. You will need a VHF/UHF outdoor antenna to pick up KMSP and KARE 11 and also get all the other channels.

Indoor Antenna


Check your antenna to make sure it's a UHF/VHF antenna. You may need an indoor antenna that has rabbit ears -- that is the best way to get KMSP/FOX 9 reception on your TV. Your antenna should have a power boost to amplify the VHF signal if you are having trouble getting FOX 9 or KARE 11.

What Antenna Is Right For You?

Need help locating the proper outdoor antenna to receive your local television broadcast channels? Based on geographical maps and signal strengths, AntennaWeb.org locates the best antenna for you, whether it's a home satellite system, high-definition television (HDTV) or a traditional analog set.

Make sure you antenna is pointed toward Shoreview, where FOX 9 transmits from.

Since the digital switchover, I have lost channels, despite re running the setup and tuning. Any suggestions as to why this is happening?


I have a similar issue. When the digital switch happened here some of the local TV stations changed frequencies from UHF to VHF. I do not have a VHF antenna so I am unable to receive these channels. I do have a great UHF antenna, but it will not receive VHF. The fix is of course is a new UHF/VHF antenna. I am 50 miles away from the TV transmitters.

This may or may not be your problem. I hope this is helpful to you.

Need a clone box for multiple Panasonic ct 2522 he televisions


You can get your Panasonic Tv out of hotel mode with the Regular remote control you got with them.

Please follow the steps below.

Press and hold the V/- button on the tv itself.
while you are holding this button down, with the Panasonic remote you got with them press the AV button 3 times.

This will bring up a hidden Installer Menu this is where you can take off the HOTEL MODE. and set up your owe setting.

While you are in this mode, be very care you are not switching things off that you are not sure what they are. as this may put a spanner in the works

Hope you get this all sorted out.

Digital channels


It's possible the stations you have in your area

have switched from UHF to VHF or vise-versa

I had the same problem and have lost one channel completely

You didn't clarify if your using an antenna or

cable qam so I assumed you are using antenna.

Youll need to check your antenna to see if it

supports both UHF vhf if it only supports one

that could be your problem .

go to antennaweb.org it will help you determine

what stations are avalible to you .

Tv WILL NOT GO PAST CHANNEL 18 AND THE REMOTE IS UNIVERSAL AND WILL NOT PASS THESE STATIONS EITHER.cAN BRING UP MENU BUT CAN'T GET ANY FURTHER THAN THAT. wHAT CAN i DO TO GET PAST THIS?


There's a setting in the TV to be able to switch between VHF and UHF. VHF is limited to channels 18 and below (if I remember correctly). Look for a switch or setting on the TV to change it to UHF. Could be a setting in TV menu or a physical switch on the TV.

Making the TV VHF plus UHF cable ready


If your tv tuner on vhf only goes to channel 13 you will not recieve uhf channels if you are hooked to cable tv. You can do a search for mid band to uhf converters (converts uhf to vhf).We used to use them in the early 80's. Even if you can find one it will only go to channel 22.

Firstly i do not have a projection tv problem


I've searched everywhere for any info in regards to your TVs but nothing comes up. It appears that those monitors or TVs were somehow just modified to work with the motel setup. You can try to use them with an external tuner such as a VCR to tune the channels to send the video signal to the TV.
What other type of connectors dod you have at the back?
Is there a way you can post a picture of the back of your TV?

No uhf with antannae


UHF channels are basically "line of sight" type signals. You need to be pretty near those UHF stations.
You need a Uhf or combination Uhf/ Vhf antenna to receive them - - Usually an out-door type.
Your TV needs to be set in the "antenna" mode to tune beyond channel 13 "air type" channels. Channel 14 is the first UHF channel if you're in the antenna mode. If you're in the "Cable" mode then channel 14 is a cable channel which is operating at a different frequency from UHF.
I hope this will help you!

Reception of vhf/uhf channels


You did not mention which set you have, so look for a small switch (usually on the back of the set) or go into the menu and set the TV to the "broadcast" or "tv" mode. If the set is in the "cable" mode, you will not get any UHF channels above 13.
