Hello Han01, I am going to assume that you have a good RF signal coming in and that the four terrestrial channels are coming in clearly. Normally I would use a VA62 or a VA62A to inject a signal at the proper input voltage of off air RF about 1000uv down to 500uv. Injecting the signal will allow you to test if the TV can lock on to the signal and capture and store it. If it can then your issue is with the signal level coming into the TV set from the antenna. If not, then your problem is the sensitivity of your RF tunner which would indicate a possible RF input/amplifier issue. If it is the actual tuner, I would then suggest getting a OEM replacement for your tuner, I have repaired 6 tuners in my 25 years of TV experience and every time I finished the job I vowed I would never do that again. Finally one day I purchased an OEM tuner replacement and I have not repaired a tuner since (It's good academic work, but not worth the time, if time is money). If the tuner is not the problem then the issue may be the chip which stores the channel in memory. This can be checked with a multimeter or an oscilloscope (data pulses and truth tables will be used here). In any event. If you do not have any of the equipment I mentioned, and do not have electronics experience, I would suggest taking your VCR to a TV repair shop, since these measurements are very critical in the analysis of your problem.

If you have a cable system hook-up, in the menu setup there is a selection for type of TV signal, select cable and then select the auto channel tune feature.

Hello


You can use a VCR as a tuner if you tune the TV to the VCR. for instance channel three or four, however you have the switch set on the back of the VCR. Then of course you would connect any antenna or cable into the VCR and use that exclusively to tune your TV. Better yet, if you have a line level input to your TV you could connect the VCR with RCA jacks (the red, white, and yellow) and then you would enjoy a sharper picture.

I inherited an old Sony Trinatron TV it's working fine & have just bought and LG VCR to replace a VCR that broke which also works fine. The problem is in tuning the VCR into TV. I automatically tuned...


Depending on where you live you might have to go buy an HD antenna and scan for channels and hope you can get a PBS station or something to get you off of zero and then go into the menu and manually program a channel you can use to tune your VCR maybe that might do the trick

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900


the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

I just read this solution online a few minutes ago, so i don't know how accurate it is, but
someone was having problems viewing DVD. So maybe it will also work for your xbox.

And I quote:
VCR - tune TV to channel 91
DVD - tune TV to channel 92

Someone else posted if these didn't work, try channels 00 or 01.

Hope this helps.

Unable to Tune TV to Sky + RF output


Hi.

The problem is that the modulator output frequency of your sky box is exactly the same as for example chanel 5 on your terestrial aerial.
You need to change this number to a different one thats clear of local terestrial transmissions


1) Select the Services button on your Sky or Sky+ remote control.

2) Type in 401 [select] on your key pad and you will get to the installer menu. You cant gain access to this via the drop down menu as it is designed for the Sky Engineer to use.

3)
Select Option 4 to configure the RF outlets on your Sky Digibox.

4) The option RF Chanel Number change this number from example 35 to 60 .
You may need to do this using other numbers 26 34 55 etc
Every time you alter the number store it then try & tune TV to sky.
Any other sets in the house connected by RF leads will require retuning for sky.
Save new settings and you should find that your RF outlet to TV works fine.
