I was given a TXH1970 TV. No remote was included. The cable connection in the room works fine on a different TV. I plug the cable into the back of the TXH1970 and get 3 or 4 stations and indication that it is "AIR" or "ANTENNA". Pushing the menu button on the TV gives me some choices but does NOT allow me to switch to cable. There is only the ONE cable connection at the back and the A/V jacks. Suggestions
Latino, thanks once again for trying to solve this problem. I called Samsung and they said "universal remotes do NOT work with the on-screen menu. However, I then plugged the cable in (did that the first time) and tried the on-screen menu when it was on a channel, not just a "snow screen". The menu worked with the TV buttons and I am now successfully receiving all the cable stations I desire!

Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.
You can split the signal from TV1 if it is connected via a coax cable. All you would have to do is run that TV1 connection into a 2-way splitter, then run a connection from each of the ports to a different TV.
The TV1, however, is still IR so you wouldn't be able to change channels from another room unless it has a clear shot to the receiver. If you have any other questions, let me know!
Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.
are you on sattilite or cable, and is this the remote you're using? I had this prob once. Somehow the 2 remotes got swapped...the tv that worked probably belongs to the remote that worked...try each of the remotes on each tv.
You should have your system setup in the following manner below:
You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.
Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.
