An attenuator reduces all signals. Attenuators are often used when you are close to a transmitter that causes interference to other stations. By knocking the signals down, the strong signal is less likely to interfere with the other stations, while the other station's signals will be reduced too - many can now be tuned and viewed. This comes with the risk that some stations that had a signal that was just over the threshold of being tuned and watched no longer have a signal level that passes through the attenuator. This is what is happening in your situation.

Determine if you can watch stations you like without the attenuator. If so, do not reinstall it. If you find that some of the stations are being interfered with by another station - see if you can change the amount of attenuation in the device. Some attenuators are adjustable and make this easy to do. If yours is not adjustable, you might consider purchasing an adjustable type - as the one you have is not suitable.

Lastly, consider installing a rotatable antenna. This will allow you to aim the antenna directly at the broadcaster's antenna - allowing you to reject signals not in the same direction. This should reduce your interference from other strong signals that originate from a different direction. This will also increase the signal strength from all transmitters as you can point your antenna directly as the antenna - instead of capturing signals from the side or back of your antenna.

I hope this helps and good luck! please rate my reply. thank you.

How can i tune mt tv? I run it from my satellite (I don't have a terrestrial aeriel) When I start to tune it it keeps telling me that my aeriel is not connected

If you are running a Sat, there is no need to tune your TV. Put it on the input that your Sat is using. If it is connected through your antenna input, just manually put your set on channel 3.

I want to set up my video recorder to my tv and have forgotten how to do it. I have connected the two by aeriel but cannot see what else to do.

Youe aerial should be in the rear of the VCR & the other cable (flylead) should come from the output connection of the VCR & into the TV. To easily find the VCR channel insert a film tape into the video & press play, now selecting the VCR channel on the TV (EG. channel number 0) now you will need to go into the manual tuning on the TV & search until it finds the playback film, once this happens, store this setting. An easier alternative would be to buy a scart connector & connect this from the VCR to the TV & then the video channel will show on the AV setting on the TV, this saves you any tuning problem.

DTV just means that it is a Digital Television (instead of analog). There is no component or part that you can "find or access"

Sharp LC-52D62U HDTV won't tune-in channel 21.

Sounds like the signal is probably too strong. The TV is not the problem.
