SOURCE: Poor reception on atsc portable tv

an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

Looking for a 21" antenna for a Motorola SP10


There are custom made antennas for portables. But the better solution is by eradiostore, use a mag mount.1) custom portable antenna, expensive.2) Motorola adaptor to BNC to longer antenna (portable, car type or base station).
3) NO power increase, not only are those frequencies designed for low power the board inside the radio cannot handle the heat and is not changeable or adjustable.

Plugged in, cable connected, turned on, says "No Signal"


OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.

If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.

This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.

I hope this helps.

I want to get an external magnetic base antenna to increase distance. What do I need to buy and how do I adjust the radio for the antenna? Or do I need to adjust anything?


swlovett,

The best out of the package antenna for a magnetic I have experienced has been the Wilson "Lil Wil". As long as the instructions are read and followed correctly and adjusted with a good working SWR meter you should not have any problems. Make sure the ground is good on the base, and adjust the lowest SWR on channel 20. Then check the other channels 1 and 40 to make sure the SWR reading is even. If you cannot get a good reading anywhere, check the ground and readjust the base. Should you continue to have a high reading you may have to trim the length of the antenna according to instructions included with the Wilson Antenna. Your radio should not need any adjustment and is factory preset and tuned. This is instructions for the "Little Wil", however, you may choose some of the more broadbanded antennas that are longer and easier to tune, although more pricey.

What do ineed to watch this tv now that we have digital services


Yes you do. Not only do you need a convertor box but an antenna to connect to the convertor box. The convertor box will have to be plugged in and depending on the antenna it might have to be plugged in. This tv does allow and external antenna to be connected to it. This is where you will attach the convertor box with whatever adaptor you may need. The tv will need to remain on channel 3 at all times.

if this is a portable tv; your state might have gone digital programming which you can only receive canada stations only. but see if you have an external antenna jack then you need the adapter to use with an antenna you can find it at radio shack.

VIORE PLC7V95 7'' portable TV, cant get channels when scan


I notice that on mine, the positioning of the included tv antenna is very, very, very finicky. I also don't know how to "add" a new channel other than to hook it to the big house antenna and pick "re-scan" (or auto-scan or whatever it's called).

So I think your best bet is to pick a better antenna or know that even the tiniest fiddling with the antenna makes a diff. Sometimes, I even have the antenna horizontal (using the magnet) to get the good reception on a given channel. Seems like a hassle except that what should I expect from a tiny antenna....
