Question about Televison & Video
I bought the above tv mentioned in the subject line and like it says........i need help setting up the channel setup... Well help understanding it actually. The instructions might as well all been written in chineese because that is what the english part sounded like to me.
anyways i have the option of these setups
! CATV takes approx. 50 min.
That is exactly how the setup screen presents itself. I have managed to set it up for cable and cant remember how i even set that up to be honest. Now i think i remember this correct the Ch Tv is for regular no cable channel setup so that is useless to me
what is the TV DTV for and what is the CATV and why was there two of them and why would it take 50 minutes to set it up.....
I sure hope this makes sense to you guys. I called Sylvania....and I understood the guy in India about as much as I understood the written instructions, he was a real sweet guy but the accent nearly killed this half texan half Nyker, i have accent delimas of my own......lol....
any and all help will be appericated soooo sooo much
This is the chanel set up options I see on the online manual:
- CHANNEL SETUP -
AUTO PRESET CH(DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(TV/DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
! CATV takes approx. 50min.
To set up for over the air broadcast that local channels now have in HDTV, you will select AUTO PRESET CH(DTV). You will have to disconnect cable for this option; however, the cable company will send local channels over the cable.
Bottom line, if you have cable, use it, it will most likely still deliver the best signal.
So coonect cable and use this option:
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
Oh, and the reason it takes so long is because there are more channels to scan with cable then with the local over the air channels.

USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV. Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4. Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2. This should work. I hope it helps you.
