Question about Curtis-Mathis CM19011 TV

1 Answer

Ant/cable During a power outage, I used a generator to run tv. Cable was out so I hooked up rabbit ears. When power came back on I hooked cable again but cannot get reception thru cable box. When cable is hooked up directly, it works but not through the box, which has premium channels. Pushing the menu button, I can't find a ant/cable selection. Any ideas?

Your box might be blown out

also call the cable company to see if the outage didnt affect them

they might be out too

on the TV you might to look for setup or init setup

a model number of the tv set wouldnt hurt too

How do you connect rabbit ears to a tv


First you may need a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer if you have a flat wire with 2 leads coming out of the rabbit ears..you can get one at walmart, I attached a picture of what they look like...hook the 2 terminals from the rabbit ears to the transformer and plug it into the round terminal of the tv, set the tv to cable or antenna, what ever it has for settings, unfortunately though you may not get all that much with old rabbit ears as they are lower frequency pickup than the new HD channels run on.

Hook rabbit ears to a vizio tv


Weak signal? Try introducing a known working video source and see if set works. If so, try hooking up an antenna amp to the rabbit ears. If that gets some results you need to either get cable or a good outdoor aerial.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels


It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get...


You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

If you rabit ears have a ribbon cable you will need a coax adaptor. Radio Shack carries them. If you cant find them, you might have to get a set of rabit ears that has coax wires. The antenna will plug into the cable in of the DVR. You take the coax output and plug that into the tv using a coax wire.
