2 Answers

Digital not displaying

We connected to a digital antenna and was able to watch digital channels for 2 years and until yesterday, all of suddent we cannot watch digital channels at all.

We replaced the remote battery, re-assure the connection is ok, tried everything.

We then also click menu, setup, digital setup, it doesn't display anything like it used to, only display "--:--" at the right bottom of the screen.

Could you suggest anything else for us to try?

THanks a lot for your help!

Check first that your TV input is set on digital, and not on aerial.If tv input setting is ok, go to your digital box menu and set up channels again.

Apex digital250A digita tv converterl


The outside antenna gets threaded onto the RF connector that says antenna in. Then either connect another RF cable to the tv and select ch 3 or 4 (switch on back of box) or use the yellow,red and white cable to the tv. If you used the three cables use the remote to select the input you used. Just advance the channels until you find the picture. If you used the RF cable, just tune to channel 3 or 4 whichever you used. Now do a channel scan with the remote that came with the converter. Once that is done you will have to use that same remote to change digital channels.

I'm trying to hook up an indoor antenna to my polaroid flm-3232 do I need a digital converter box or does the tv have the necessary components?


You have an analog TV, meaning that the tuner in your TV is analog only. You must buy a digital converter to see broadcast Digital TV via your external antenna and it will be attached to the antenna input jack or other jack depending on how it comes out of the converter.

One bit of advice, there is no such thing as a "digital" antenna, they are all analog. Even a 50 year old, outside antenna aerial that you see out in the countryside will pick up the new Digital Broadcasts to be converted by a Digital Converter and displayed on a 50 year old TV.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

Video 2/3 and Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan
HDMI 1/2 Memory, Digital Caption, V-Guide
OK.

How can i install an indoor antenna to my tv? its no signal coming up i have a rca antenna. will that work?


Your TV has to have a digital tuner. If you get to the input for digital tuner it will display the channels with decimal points 2.1, 2.2, etc. If you do not see that you have an analog tuner or cable ready.
Try changing the inputs until you get digital channels. If not, go to the store and purchase digital converter box...40 bucks

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

I cannot select Channel 10


What kind of antenna is used. Outdoor antenna or indoor antenna. The main board only detect the signal with certain level, if the signal strength is not enough, it will pass by. Since the change of signal from analog to digital this problem got more depending on your location. You need to use a booster-antenna to over come this problem.

Playing vcr causes new digital tv to lose saved channels


Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.

TV antenna


Hi splhcb,

Your television is already an HDTV, meaning it is set up for receiving digital broadcasts. In this case, you should not need a separate converter box for over-the-air reception. You will need an antenna, but the type you purchase depends on things like how far you live from broadcast towers, landscapes, buildings, and where it will be located in your home. Although many antennas are being marketed as HDTV compatible, if you already own an antenna you likely can continue using it. Otherwise, it is best to speak with someone at the store who can weigh the factors in your situation to recommend the best antenna.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
