Question about Televison & Video
Posted by Anonymous on
Digital TVs do require a fairly strong signal in order to operate properly. The fact that your set is displaying the "weak or no signal" message is proof that the incoming signal is below the required signal input level threshold.
A "rabbit ears" type of antenna would only work if you were right next to the broadcast transmitter. I assume that you have the rabbit ears fully extended and that you have tried slowly rotating it from one side to the other to see if you can get a signal lock. But seriously I doubt it.
You should check into either a set-top amplified antenna, or a larger roof or attic mounted antenna. Note: While the larger antenna should provide a much stronger (better) signal, they tend to be directional. You might have to put it on a rotator so that you can "steer" (aim) the antenna toward a particular signal. For most people, this is unrealistic due to the expense and complexity.
My recommendation is to get an amplified omni-directional set-top antenna designed to receive DTV signals. That should fix your problem.
Also Make sure you select the HDMI input using the remote control, should be a button on there called 'Source' or 'AV' or 'Input'. You may need to press it a number of times before getting to the cable box.
