Question about Curtis Televison & Video

2 Answers

I just bought an LCD 1933A TV. I don't have cable so I connected an indoor antenna to it as instructed ( Radio Shack indoor amplified HDTV antenna 15-254). I turned the TV on and no matter what I did with the antenna, I got a "NO SIGNAL" and then a 30 second automatic turn off. (I live 3 miles from the Empire State Building). What's wrong, or what am I missing or doing wrong?

Few things,

  1. You will have to go into your menu settings and be sure to select "Air" instead of Cable for your antenna connection
  2. Then run auto scan channel setup to find all available channels in your area
  3. Once completed be sure you are on Input Source TV you should be able to select Channel up/down on the remote to select your channel to view

If you ever see No Signal you are probably on an AV input and not on your antenna input.

How do I hook an antenna to my tv


Hi Dwayne,

The Proton has an NTSC analog tuner and also an ATSC digital tuner. Have you tried switching or changing the SOURCE inputs?
You may also have to use the scan button to have the tuner "find" the channels for you once you determine that you have selected the correct source for the antenna.
See page 9 of the manual.

Had my channelmaster 4046 HD hooked up to a vizio tv and got all major channels. Now have hooked up my antenna to an RCA tv and can't get NBC and local FOX station is jumpy


The tuner in the RCA has poor sensitivity. Radio Shack sells a inline amplifier that may help, make sure you can return it if it doesn't. Move the antenna outside if possible and as high as possible, that may help. Good Luck!

My Toshiba flat screen is not picking up the local digital channels


As an past Radio Engineer I feel compelled to tell you that the conversion to HD in FM and TV signals did not do all of us a favor.
The coverage pattern of stations has decreased to the level of about 70% due to this new advanced technology. I think what your real problem is comes from a misunderstanding of what a HD TV signal must be supplied from. In my house as an example which is 21 mikes away from Chicago and the Willis building where a lot of TV signals are from, the need to put up a new higher gain $100 HD TV antenna was required. You can get such antennas from Antennadirect web site. You will also require a length of high grade 75 ohm coax cable- I bought the high grade Digital TV cable from Gepco International with a 3 GHz bandwidth and also distribute the signal to a number of TV's either with a Wineguard or Blonder-****** distribution amplifier.
My antenna is mounted near 30 feet off the ground. Places like Radio Shack may sell these kinds of indoor TV antennas but they are depending on the lack of knowledge of the people buying them to sell the product. It also depends on how far you are from the source of transmission. If you are 5 miles in a high rise building facing the transmission tower, you might have luck with an indoor antenna, if you are 20 or 30 miles away from transmission you might have to go to more elaborate measures to get a signal down to the TV. There is no magic to it just a need for a person who understands the signal levels and what is needed. I spent time as a Chief Engineer for 4 Radio stations in Chicago as well as was involved in a FM HD installation or two.
See if you can find a Television shop that you can ask questions about your installation. They may be able to help you mount a roof antenna if you can not do it yourself.

How do I set TV to antenna - Vizio VA26L


The input should be selected as 'TV' to get any on-air transmission. Now the input is selected to Cable. Change it to TV. Refer its user manual for more details.

You need to go into on screen TV tuner/channel scanning setup page and change the signal source from CABLE to ANTENNA so it will scan again to pick up off the air signals. Please read the TV user manual for more details.

Unless you are very close to the TV transmitter aerial it is very unlikely that you will get adequate signal for digital TV with an indoor antenna. Check with your neighbours to see what they use and where the nearest transmitter is.
Unfortunately, with indoor an antenna, the amplifier also amplifies any electrical interference from other devices in the building.
First step would be to try taking it outdoors (use an extension cord to get well away from any buildings, trees or large metal objects that could block the signal).

The antenna, will more than likely, come with a feed cable with a screw type F connector that you attach to the antenna connector on your Phillips TV. Pretty simple! Most antenna's will come with complete installation instructions.
