Question about Sanyo HT27546 TV

Open Question

Not able to manually add Digital Channels

Our antenna is spliced to both the digital and analog inputs on our Sanyo HT27546. For analog stations, all functions work, including the Channel Scan Memory. However, for the digital stations, the tv itself (and remote) as well as the CH Scan Memory will not allow you to use the up/down keys or numerals to select a channel that it has not picked up through the Add-On search.

Is this just a signal strength problem from the stations? (I know it is missing local stations that are currently broadcasting DTV channels). Our antenna is continuing to pick up their analog equivalents-some in pristine, crystal clarity, but the digital ones simply aren't there. I suppose there is some sort of threshold of signal strength for which the TV decides there is "no signal" but is there anyway to adjust this?

I do not think it is a problem with our antenna. It picks up analog (and a couple digital) stations over 150 miles away...

Thanks for any advice!

The only way your going to change the video mode is with the original remote. If you need another remote go to http://remotes.com or call 1800 remotes Theres a button on the upper left hand side of the remote called video mode. A universal most of the time will not work this function. You could ask around to your friends and buddies or relitives if anyone has a working Sanyo remote or go to a local retailer that sells Sanyo and see if he would let you borrow one for a little while so you can switch out of the video mode. Good Luck

SOURCE: trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box

Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

You gotta have a way to get signal to the tv . If you don't want a outside antenna use rabbit ears .After you hook them up hide them behind the tv then do a channel scan. If you don't pick up all the stations set them on top and scan again or get satillite or cable hd boxes.

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 .

How do I switch from catv to antenna on model mwc13d6


First make sure that the TV/DVD player is on TV by pressing the Channel Up. (The channel up/down will rotate through AUX and any programmed channels.) You'll need the original remote or an universal remote that matches the Set-up function. Then press Set-up on the remote; it's to the left of Mute above Play.
Use the Up/Down arrows to navigate to Channel Setup. Press Enter to access the Channel Setup menu. Use the Up and Down arrows to select Auto Ch Programming and press Enter. Wait for the TV to scan all available channels. Afterwards, you can go back to the Channel Setup menu and choose Add/Delete channels. Press Set-Up again to exit the On-screen menu system.

Unless you have a set-top Digital-to-Analog converter attached to the TV, you will only get one of the few remaining low power analog stations, if you are close to the transmitter. This set only has an NTSC tuner. Most set-top boxes can be attached to the Antenna input and be set to Channel 3 or 4 or connected to the Aux input.


The Magnavox MWC13D6 was manufactured by Funai and the manual is available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . The direct link to the manual is MWC13D6 is http://www.funai-corp.com/support/om/MWC13D6.pdf .

Jvc hd56g786 channels stuck on digital cant get them changed to analog


Using the television's remote control, enter the user's menu. Search for video input and change from cable to antenna. If still experiencing difficulty, visit the JVC website and download the owner's manual to learn the procedure of changing the video input type and deactivate the television's digital decoder.

How do we scan/program in local tv channels. We bought an external antenna, but get no picture. Typically, there is a protocol for scanning channels into the set. Model is Sansui TVS2746B, and the set was...


Okay, does this tv have a built in DIGITAL tuner? Most tv's only have an analog tuner. You can tell the difference while you are changing the channels. If the channel indicates 2.1 or 2.2 and so forth, it is on a digital channel mode. If you change the channel and it indicated 2, 3, 4, etc. it is analog. If it has digital capability change the input until you see 2.1, 3.4 etc. If you cycle through all the inputs on the tv like, input 1 (TV) input 2(DVD) input 3(HDMI) and so forth and you never see the digital channel you most likely do not have a digital tuner. You will need to purchase a digital converter which will convert it to analog and you can watch it by placing you tv on analog channel 3 just like the old vcr's. Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate this solution.

I have the box installed and on. Now what do I do to get the local stations on my TV


What box - satellite/cable/digital-to-analog converter? This tv has a digital (ATSC) tuner built in. So if you are looking for OTA channels, use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to find out what direction to point your antenna and what antenna you need. Then connect the antenna's coax cable to your TV. Antennaweb is very conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna. tvfool.com will list several more channels and the different antennas that are needed for various distances between your location and the station transmitters.

If you are sharing one antenna between several tvs or tv and other devices, you may need an amplifier in addition to the splitter. (Unfortunately, these can get damaged by surges as well. I've lost certain channels after a lightning strike turned the amp into a filter for one part of the RF signal spectrum.)

Once you have the antenna connected and pointing in the direction of the desired station, you will need to scan for channels. If this is the first time the tv is set up, you will be prompted for menu language, the input type and then asked if you want the TV to auto-scan for channels. Otherwise, hit Menu, use the left and right arrows to get to the Channels menu option and press the + button in the center of the arrow keys. Next use the up and down arrows to set the incoming signal (if needed) - the item is labeled Cable and is a Yes/No (again press + to select item and to enter the change). Continue down to the Auto-program and let that run. You can add/remove channels from the resulting listing with the Channel Skip/Add option just below Auto-program.

I hope this helps.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
