My channel 7 keeps freezing and comes up with no signal sometimes for days when it's though my my bush digital recorder box. But when it's just though the tv channel 7 works fine. What's going on??


Different digital boxes and tv's have different levels of RF gain. Some need more signal and some need less to work efficiently.
Possibly your Bush pvr needs a much stronger signal than your tv so the available signal is permanently on the threshold of reception and atmospheric conditions will some of the time reduce the available signal when reception will become impossible for the box but still be above the threshold for the tv set.

Modern Bush is not reknown for being a high quality brand and the purchasers of budget brand pvr's often discover reception or performance problems in fringe signal areas. Because a single aerial must receive a very wide range of frequencies it will be more efficient for some channels than others and so one channel could be a fringe channel and another channel produce a very strong frequency.

The signal strength and quality can be checked for each channel by selecting options in the menu in order to check this theory.

The problem might be solved by replacing the Bush pvr with a premium brand or replacing your aerial for a more efficient type. One of my friends had five different boxes before he gained a satisfactory performance and another friend three boxes and still has problems.
My installation has a new high gain wideband aerial on top of my 3 storey house and a distribution amplifier in the loft to keep the input lead short and the whole lot connected by very good quality double-wrapped co-ax.
I had to add different amounts of attenuation for each box or tv set but in spite of the signal being on average too strong and needing attenuating there are still channels for which the aerial is not as efficient and providing only a weak signal.

How do i get a signal using co-axial connections


An antenna on one end of the coaxial cable will get signals. The other end can connect to your TV. Then in the menu on the TV you have to select 'antenna' instead of cable. Many seem to have some kind of 'auto scan' mode that will look for channels available. (Unless you are talking about getting signals from the cable company. Then select 'cable' and still auto scan to find available channels.)

I don't have cable TV, so do I need just an antenna or a digital converter box to be able to watch this TV. The Make & Model # is: TOSHIBA LCD TV/DVD Combination & 27HLV95


The TV has NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital) and a ClearQAM (digital unencrypted) tuners. So you do not need a converter box. However, digital TV signals are either all or nothing (sufficient signal for the tuner to process the signal or a no signal message will appear). You should check antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for the channels that are available in your location depending on how the antenna is pointed. (Hills, tall buildings and trees may decrease the channels available in your location.) Antennaweb is very conservative in the list of available channels and assumes an external antenna. TVfool.com provides a list of channels (in each direction) depending on the type of antenna you have. (Indoor antennas usually don't get as much signal as external ones.) Antennas for sale have a color rating that matches the colors given by TVfool.

The manual for the 27HLV95 is available from Toshiba as a PDF: http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/27hlv95/docs/27hlv95_om_e.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(antennaweb.org indicates that my location will only receive two channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With an external antenna, I actually get 10 (including the sub-channels) with the majority from transmitters 30 miles away.)

I need code to activate my tv and channels


You probably need to SCAN the channels.
Connect the signal source to the tv. Either cable or Antenna.
Enter the menu mode on the tv. You can do through the remote.
Scroll down to the signal source. Select the signal source you have connected to the back of set.
Scroll to SCAN in the menu.
SCAN in the channels.
Exit menu mode.
You can now watch available channels.

How to scan channels


The TV user guide should provide the procedures of acquiring auto scan. For example, your TV may be acquiring functionality from satellites dishs or cable receiver devices. Performing an auto scan achievable with the remote control device with adjustment to settings on the channel buttons would produce a signal only with available transmitter stations. Performing a channel auto scan would display no signals without available receiver devices often acquired with susbscription from a provder either cable TV, sattelite or disk network, show on demand for example. However, performing an auto scan on a new Tv should simply display a count list of possible available channels on which signals could be display when any is provided. Good luck

Can't pick up all available channels


Well, remember that in USA all olds tv do not can receive signal because the new signal transmitting is in high-definition and old equipment do not receive that kind of signal.

I get no stations on my tv


Use an Antenna that Provides Good Reception of All Channels
  • Most existing antennas used by consumers will provide good reception of DTV signals. (Before making any changes, try your existing antenna first to see of it allows you to receive all the stations you normally watch.)
  • For watching DTV signals, you will need an antenna that provides good reception of both VHF signals (channels 2-13) and UHF signals (channels 14-51) to reliably receive all of the digital signals broadcast in your area.
  • Many antennas are designed only for reception of either VHF or UHF signals (but not both). For example, the commonly used “rabbit ears” indoor antenna is only suitable for receiving VHF signals. To receive UHF signals, an indoor antenna should also include a wire loop or other feature for reception in that band.
  • The reception capabilities of TV antennas also vary considerably, so be sure to talk to retail consultants and look at information on the packaging and/or the Internet to make sure that any new antenna you may choose provides good reception of both VHF and UHF channels. In addition, if you use an indoor antenna and receive signals on VHF channels, you may need to use an antenna with amplification.
  • Many antennas currently being sold as “HDTV Antennas,” perform best at receiving UHF signals; some of these models state that they provide reception of signals on channels 7-13 but actually perform less well receiving those channels. If you obtain one of these antennas, be sure it provides good reception of all the VHF channels as well as the UHF channels.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Check Your Connections
  • Check that your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television is connected properly. Make sure your antenna is connected to the antenna input of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. If using a digital-to-analog converter box, also ensure that the antenna output of your converter box is connected to the antenna input of your analog TV. Refer to the owner’s manuals of your components if you are unsure of the proper connections.
  • Ensure that your components are plugged in and have their power turned on.
  • If you have a digital-to-analog converter box, tune your analog TV to channel 3. You should see a set-up menu or picture displayed on your TV screen. If you do not see a set-up menu or picture, tune your TV to channel 4. If you still do not see a set-up menu or picture, recheck your connections.
Perform a Channel Scan
  • Digital-to-analog converter boxes and digital televisions have a button, usually on the remote control, that is labeled “set-up” or “menu” or some similar term. Press that button to access the set-up menu. Using the directional arrow buttons on your remote, scroll to the option that allows you to perform a “channel scan.” The channel scan will automatically search for digital broadcast channels that are available in your area. Consult the owner’s manual of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television for detailed instructions on how to perform a channel scan for your device.
  • Once the channel scan is complete, you will be able to tune to the digital channels received by your antenna. You should perform a channel scan periodically to check whether additional digital channels have become available.
Adjust Your Antenna
  • Small adjustments to your antenna can make a big difference in the number of digital channels you can receive. If you have an indoor antenna, try elevating it and moving it closer to an exterior wall of your home. After adjusting your antenna, perform another channel scan to see if your reception is improved.
  • While adjusting your antenna, it may be helpful to access the “signal strength meter” on your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television to determine whether your adjustments are improving the signals’ strength. The signal strength meter is usually accessed through the menu feature on your remote control. Refer to the owner’s manual of your device for detailed instructions on how to access its signal strength meter. Remember to do another channel scan after you have adjusted your antenna.
  • Television stations broadcasting in digital use both the VHF band (channels 2-13) and UHF band (channels 14-51). Many indoor antennas use “rabbit ears” for the VHF band and a “loop” or “bow-tie” antenna for the UHF band. Make sure you are using an antenna that covers both the VHF and UHF bands and have connected it properly.
If You are Still Having Difficulty:
  • Until June 12, 2009, some stations will be operating at reduced power levels. If you are not receiving certain digital TV stations, this does not necessarily mean there is a problem with your antenna or digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. Check with the TV station to find out whether they are planning changes that will improve reception.
  • When an analog TV signal is weak or receives interference, static, snow, and distortion will often appear on the screen. Digital broadcasting will provide a clear picture; however, if the signal falls below a certain minimum strength, the picture can disappear. This “cliff effect” means that if you watch analog TV stations that have static and distortion, you may have to adjust or upgrade your antenna system.
  • Simple indoor antennas provide minimal performance that may not be suitable for your location. If you are unable to obtain satisfactory DTV reception with your current indoor antenna, you may wish to obtain an indoor antenna that includes features for better reception of UHF signals, as well as VHF, and/or an amplifier to boost the received signal (often referred to as an active indoor antenna).
  • Generally, an outdoor antenna will get better reception than an indoor antenna. However, the performance of outdoor antennas can degrade over time due to exposure to the weather. If you are having problems, check for loose or corroded wiring, broken antenna elements and that the antenna is pointed in the right direction.
  • Try to keep the length of wire between your antenna and digital-to-analog converter box or digital television as short as possible for best reception.
  • “Splitters” that are used to connect a single antenna to multiple digital-to-analog converter boxes or digital televisions reduce the amount of signal available to each device. If you are having problems, check whether reception is improved without the splitter. In some cases an “active” splitter that includes an amplifier can solve the problem.
  • If you are near a station’s broadcast tower, reception of that station, as well as other stations, can be impeded by strong signal “overload.” Consider using an “attenuator” or removing amplifiers to improve your reception.
  • If you decide to replace or upgrade your indoor or outdoor antenna, many types are available from electronics retail stores at a variety of prices. Websites such as www.antennaweb.org provide information on the locations of broadcast towers and the types of outdoor antennas appropriate for the stations you wish to receive. If you need assistance with upgrading your antenna system, check with a local antenna retailer or antenna installer.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Hope it may helps:

Screen shows no signal


HDTV sets are different from the old analog sets.

If your set is showing No Signal or Weak Signal you will have to do the following.
1) Connect an Antenna or Cable to the input on the back.
2) Go into the Channel signal source menu and select either the Air/Antenna or Cable option.
3) Go into the Auto Program Scan menu and SCAN in the channels.

Now you can watch available channels.
