1) Make sure the tv's vide mode is in "TV" or "ANT" or "Antenna" some times even referred as "Off Air" 2) In the TV's settings make sure a "Channel Scan" has been performed to tell the TV which channels are available in your area. If this is not done you won't be able to select any channels. Also make sure that the antenna is of the right impedance (i.e. 52ohms) check your manual and see what your TV accepts. 3) Make sure that you are using coxial cable connection and not RCA or HDMI connections as these connections are not designed for an over the air antenna.
have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver.After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using thishookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv asusual...Now plug rca cables(red,yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directvreceiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavoxplayer...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that'sok) Now hook up up the dvd playerto the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if yourtv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available atwalmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connectionsto the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)
Here is how you should have it connected. 1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever) 2- Converter box 3- Television
When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.
You have an awesome antenna - every one should have one like it!
An antenna that used to work with the older analog signals will work with the digital ones. What you have to remember is that analog systems though subject to ghosting, were brutes signal wise ala the metal on older cars. Digital signals are frail and even tree leaves in between the antenna and transmitter can have adverse effect on signal received.
If the sound is weak on your set that is a function of your sets audio section. Somewhere you are losing gain and/or amplification. If you have an audio output you might consider hooking that up to one of the audio inputs on audio receiver. It will work fine and that is what I did with my unit.
That sounds about right if you have cable instead of an antenna cable. If it can't tune anything but 5 channels in, that's all it claims; set it to CABLE IN instead and try that so the tuner can get along with your cable box. If you really do have an antenna hooked up, get it away from whatever's reflecting signal and screwing up reception.
