I just got the antena model SDV8622T/27 for my parents home. We connected it as directed. When scanning the channels they only receive 3 channels instead of 7 now. What have we done wrong and how do we correct it?

It needs to be pointed in the correct direction of the transmitter with no obstructions and mounted in the correct orientation for your area (horizontal or vertical). I'm not sure if this can be mounted horizontal or if you should have got the SDV8625T/27.

    The antenna should be mounted horizontally as TV signals are polarized horizontally. This will improve your reception considerably! This will also allow the antenna to receive as an omnidirectional antenna which is good if you have TV stations in two or more directions.

How do you get a channel scan to work?


Check its input connection for any loose contact. Make sure that the external antena has been connected to the proper input socket to the TV. If all are found OK, the tuner to your set is faulty. Contact any service technician.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Will mounting sdv8622t/27 antenna higher improve reception.also if the booster stays dry is it ok to mount outdoors


Hello,

yes, mounting the sdv8622t/27 antenna higher will improve its reception. The more the antenna goes up, the better the reception it receives. There won't be any interruptions if the sdv8622t/27 antenna goes higher. So, it is better if you mount the antenna higher as you intend.

As for the booster, it is not okay for the booster to stay outdoors. The booster should remain indoor, while the antenna stays outdoor.

I believe this is clear to you now. If you still have any more questions about your sdv8622t/27 antenna, please let me know as I would be please to respond to you.

Yours sincerely.

How to tune channels first time when you purchase a new Sony Kdl 32EX600 LED tv?


Hello
Do connection to the antena if you wants to set the TV auto tuned.
During this initial setup, you can perform the following:

1 Select the language for the on-screen display text.
2 Select HOME or Retail mode. [Here you have to select "Home" mode if the set displays "Retail"

3 Connect cable or antenna, then select OK to run Auto
Program

• If you have cable and antenna available, please connect cable first.

• IMPORTANT: Auto Program is only effective when cable or

antenna is connected. If you cancel Auto Program before completion some channels may not be
available.

4 Auto Program will scan for available channels from the signal source directly connected to

the TV's CABLE/ANTENNA input and may take sometime to complete the process. Follow
the help text provided on the screen to run Auto Program.
OK.

Is my apex tv AT2702 high def??


According to apex its not and does not have a digital tuner the only way this can be high def would be 720P meaning 720 lines progressive scan.

Your aspec Ratio is 4:3 this indeed is a standard TV without a digital tuner so you will need a digital setop box or a digital tuner.

High DEF is not considered digital its conidered how many lines are displayed on the TV. For example 720p, 1080p .

How do i get regular tv channels no cable or direct tv. I have a 32' magnavox model #32MF338B/F7


Hello
I'm not sure about the model number of your TV, as here it is marked as both "27MS343S and 32MF338B/F7". Anyway I gies this solution as for the first denoted.
Insert antena to the antena socket at the back side of your TV marked as 75Ohms antena input.
[1] Press "Menu" button on the remote control handset to display menu on screen.
[2] Press "Vol+ or Vol--" button repetedly to hilight "TUN" [Tuner].
[3] Press "Ch+ or Ch--" button to hilight 'AUTOPROGRAM"
[4] Press "Vol+" to programming tv channels.
Tv will tune and store channels transmitted channels at that time, through entire bands, and will display the first channel receved after tuning process completed. It may take some minutes. You have to wait it to complete. After displaying the first channel, you can select your favourite channel Using CH+ or CH--" buttons. Ok.

Change cable to antena setting


You don't, both are plugged in the same socket. To view the channels with the antenna you must do a new scan, that is all.

Can receive only channels 1 thru 27 although connected to cable with 70 channels.


First you need to check if your set is in the cable mode and not antena mode,if the set is in cable make sure is in the standard cable mode and not another type of cable like HRC,if it is change it and try the autoprogram to set the available channels.I hope it helps.
