Won't keep digital signal

Brand new TV - is setup for cable and keeps going back to analog. Defaults to analog when TV is turned off - or - auto timer comes on. Keeps saying the digital signal is weak. Every other TV in house works perfect. Had it working perfect yesterday on cable after messing with it for an hour and this morning it is back to analog.
HELP or I'm stuck with the monster!

Since the tv is new i believe that you have warranty on it from the store you purchase it take it back for a replacement,obviously it is the tv that is having the problem since the other the tvs in the house are working fine.good luck.

If you're connected to a digital cable box, I would try using the external component connections and bypass the TV's tuner. If all you have is straight cable coming into the house, it could be the cable signal itself or a defective tuner in the TV assuming all the menu settings are correct in the TV.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

DTV1300A Sansui is not dtv ready, Am I doing something wrong?


To put your digital channels into the memory of the DTV1300 or 1900 press the MENU/ENTER button. Go to CH SETUP. Press the VOL + button. Go to TV CABLE. Use VOL+ button to set to TV for antenna or CABLE for cable without a cable box. Go to AUTO CH MEMORY. Press the VOL+ button. Wait for the search screen to go away after the analog and digital searches finish on their own. Check ALL your channels with the CH up button. I hope this helps you.

Analog / Digital stations


Hello mikekahan,

OK you are not going to like this but here we go any way. First of all I need to explain how your channels are created.

When the RF signals come into the headend of the Down converters they are separated into pre channelized designations DC (Down Converter) 4 Stream 1 (DC 4-1, DC 4-2...) now once this is done the down converter signal is fed into a channel processor which takes the incoming signal from the Down Converter remodulates it and puts it on an assigned channel 4-1 could become channel 4, 4-2 could become channel 5 and so on. Once this is done you end up with your regular channel line up for analog channels, now for digital its a little different you have IRDs (Integrated Receiver Decoders) which take the off air or satellite Digital RF signals and convert them into MPEG Streams which is the fed into what is called a SEM (Motorola Architecture) Stream Encryption Module which assigns numeric designations to the MPEG streams and then converts the MPEG streams back into RF. Now at this point we have analog and digital signals what then has to happen is the the analog signals must be turned into MPEG streams to go through the system so what happens is from the channel processor the analog signal is put into a SE (Stream encryptor) Like the SE1010. This takes the analog stream and turns it into am MPEG stream and feeds it into the SEM also and the SEM assigns a numeric designation just like the digital signal and this can sometime follow the same numeric designations as was obtained from the Down Converter, So what you end up with is analog and digital signals having the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2, ..... format. This is where other equipment comes into play These designations are then kept in a database and are matched to their proper channels by use of the DAC and RADD along with an IPG server. These allow the SEM to assign true channel designations to the converted channels, now the SEM DAC, and RADD talks to your STB, this is way the channels are correct because the SEM and the DAC/RADD are matching what is on the IPG (Interactive Program Guide). When you remove your cable box the tuner in your TV does not know how to deal with the DAC, RADD and IPG signals so it only displays the RF information which is the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2 data.

I hope this helps,

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

Does my tv have a digital tuner (RCA Model E13320, 2/2001)?


The digital tuner has nothing to do with the new signal you will be receiving in February of next year. The new video signal is a digital signal. The old video signal is analog. Your television receives the analog signal and converts it to what you see on television. You need a converter box to convert the new digital signal back to an analog signal your television can convert.
