Question about JVC HD-52G886 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a OTA HD antenna that works fine on different TV's and on my satellite reciever, but when connected to the ATSC on the JVC tv; it cant find a single channel. On the other TV's there is at least 10 channels, sometimes more. Is there someway to fix my JVC TV?
This television has an extremely weak tuner. It is very sensitive to both ghosting (multipath) and weak signal conditions, which cause it's digital decoder to "error out". Coupled with this is the decoder's long set-up time (time to actually begin a decoded video stream after signal is selected)and you find that every time the decoder loses sync it takes several seconds to reestablish normal decoding. The net result is the possiblity that the tuner will be continually restarting and never display anything. An extremely directional antenna may help. Otherwise, find a good external tuner box and use that.
