New sony tv doesn't recognize cable channels


Normally the TV has to be connected to a set top box supplied by the cable company. The TV set usually needs to be tuned to channel three (or four) and kept at this setting. If an HTMI connection cable is used look for a button labled "input" on the TV remote and using the remote change the input selection to tch the HTMI input station you plugged it into .

Cannot change channel on my Dynex DX-L26-10a TV


Try checking the signal strength then run the scan again.
Checking the DTV signal strength
You can check the DTV signal strength to determine if you need to adjust your antenna or digital cable input. The higher the signal strength, the less likely you are to experience picture degradation.To check the DTV signal strength:
1.Press MENU. The on-screen menu opens.

2.Press < or > to highlight Channel, then press v. The Channel menu opens. The DTV signal strength is shown at the bottom of the menu.

3.Press EXIT to close the menu.

How do i connect the cables from antenna to set top box to dvd player to tv what cable goes where?


The antenna goes in the box in it's connector. Then the box and the player will have to be separately connected to the tv using 2 AV cables like

To view them you just power them up and select them from the AV/source/input menu of the tv.

I do not know how to plug in the tv antenna for Acer AL1916W


Unless you have a TV tuner card, you cannot connect to a TV. If you do have a tuner card, it is as easy as connecting a jumper cable from your antenna to your computer.

My tv channels are not coming clear so what should


You may need to get an antenna. You know, if you don't have cable or the new machine that hooks up onto the tv, you surely won't get anyting. The machine is a converter box. Something with the satellites has changed in space. If you don't have cable or a converter box, it won't work. If you do, I would get an antenna. If THAT doesn't work, I would suggest contacting the place where you got the tv.

Get dish network to work with hp SR5505F COMPAQ PRESARIO COMPUTER


You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

HP pc with built-in tv tuner


Have 9, 5 and 13 turned entirely digital as yet, so as to leave you without their signal?

From what you say, the tv tuner in your HP receives analog signals better than or instead of digital signals the stations you can receive may be analog while 9, 5, and 13 may have dispensed with their analog transmitters.

They don't have to until June, since the changeover was delayed from the original February cutoff date by Act of Congress. It is actually easier to receive a digital signal than an equally powered analog equivalent so the fact that your system worked so well with analog signals bodes well for the efficiency of your indoor antenna arrangement, though you may have to replace the possibly analog receiver in your pc with a usb digital thumbdrive like model to continue after the changeover is final.

Here's a tip...if the receiver in your pc resembles a square aluminum tin can, mounted on a PCI card in one of your slots, it is very likely analog and not digital.

Usually these receivers (or actually TUNERS) are heavily sheilded while digital receivers do not require the same amount of sheilding to avoid interference with other components, which is the concept of the big square tin can, that a digital tuner does not require.

You need to connect the antenna cable. This is called COAXIAL cable.. On the back of your TV, unscrew the antenna cable and connect it on the back of your TV tuner. Re-scan frequency on the software you are using.

No signal converter box.


Why is this in the computer section?

Anyway, don't exchange the box just yet! First, can you access the converter's menu? Because mine automatically comes up with the "no signal, call customer service" message, but I can access the menu fine -- so the hook-up is not the problem. If you can access the menu, let it autosearch for you, because mine can't be used until I do this. If you get the "weak antenna signal message", refer to the user manual to find out how to check your antenna signal strength; if it's in the weak range, you have to buy a better antenna, most likely from the official source: http://www.accessHD.tv

You can always exchange the box and repeat the process. Getting the "no signal" message is a good indicator that you've hooked everything up right, especially if it's accompanied by a customer service number. You can email me at kalalkb@gmail.com and I'll try to help you troubleshoot the problem if you like. I'm up all night.
