If you are on cable this happens alot, because alot of the channels are not reencoded for for higher quality TVs, also there could be a problem with your cable lines.If its Satellite then you may want to check your cables and switch splitters.

I have a Toshiba TV/VCR/DVD combo, remote WC-FN2. I can turn the TV on,change volume but can not change channels. Help! Thanks,


Some tv remotes will do this if the TV is programmed to skip all but one channel (or the last scan for channels had only one active channel - like a tv connected to a set top box (3,4,60)).

See if you can navigate to other channels by typing in a channel number. Also check if the Tuner is the current source of the video signal by pressing the Source or Input button. If you have a menu button on the TV or the remote, try rescanning channels or editing the channel list.

I hope this helps.

You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

I have some channels lock in which i can't pick up. How do i unlock them?


Channels Lock? is this for the TV? this is under the Computer section so I am going to asume you are trying to watch TV from your PC and some channels are locked and you cannot watch them? if you are normally suppose to get them and you are using a tv tuner from cable (for example) you should be able to modify this in the tv tuner settings.

I have a flat screen tv and monitor combi i want to add


Yes, it should be possible. I need to ask if you connected your PC through the DVI or RGB input from the back of the computer to the TV. There are 2 main connections for computer monitors. One looks like a plug with 15 pins in 3 rows of 5 (RGB) and the other has 3 rows of 6 (in 2 sections) or 8 (one large section) and and extra larger "blade", possibly with 4 more pins around the blade (DVI).

In either case, you'll need a seperate audio cable to have the audio come through the TV itself. This is a male-male cable with both ends looking like the same ends as for headphones. This should plug in to the back of your TV near the same place as your cable for the video (DVI/RGB). It should be labled "PC Audio" or "PC In" or something similar to that. It should plug in behind the computer tower in either the "Speaker Out" or "Line Out" jack. "Line Out" will usually be set at one volume (regarless of what the computer itself is set at) so you'll be able to change the volume from the TV only.

When turning on the TV with the computer after watching another channel or for the first time, set the volume at 0 or mute the TV, this will prevent blowing out the TV's speakers or your ears.

By the way, I should mention that you should NEVER use a plasma TV for computer use. Only LCD's are designed for computers and video games. I don't know what type of TV you have but plasma's will "burn-in"(show ghost images) of any images that are high contrast and stationary. The same goes for watching any TV channel with a "ticker" on the screen (a black bar at the top or bottom that is in the same spot, usually showing stock market stats, etc.)

After setting up the TV and audio through the TV, you can set up the TV and computer to have 2 seperate monitors if you have a second monitor hooked up to your computer. If you have 2 monitors hooked up, you can have the same image on both, or have 2 completely different things on each monitor. This is done in the "Control Panel" under the START menu of the computer, then go to "Display Settings" on XP or earlier or look under "Appearance and Personalization" where you'll find "Adjust Screen Resolution". Here you can select how you want your monitors to be set up, either "Extend My Desktop" for more space and 2 seperate monitors, or "Clone Desktop" for the same images on both monitors.

If you are having display problems with your TV (screen flickering, desktop looks fuzzy, desktop gets "cut off" at the edges, etc.) this is where you can adjust settings to fix the problem. Try to set the resolution to the highest setting and then the refresh rate at 60hz or higher. Don't worry, if something happens and you can't see your computer on the monitor for any reason while changing these settings, DON'T CLICK ANYTHING OR HIT ANY KEYS and the monitor will automatically reset to the previous setting after about 15 seconds, if you like the settings, click "YES" in the box that asks you if you want to save those settings.

That being said, I hope you have the best of luck getting the most out of your TV and computer with my help and don't forget to rate! If you have any other questions, add it as a comment and I will do my best to help you out. Thank you!

Not getting clear plasm picture on HD channels.


Hi.
The modern tuners are bad for this. It usually means you do not have enough signal. You need to improve the signal level.
