question about my new TV

14 posts in this topic

I bought a new 42" lcd yesterday during "black friday". I have a satellite, but still pull my locals from the antenna. when I programmed it for the antenna, I had 2-3 channels for each station. for example I had channel 11, channel 11 HD, and channel 11 weather. after a while all but the regular channels disappeared. did I do something? how can I fix it?

The owners manual should give some direction on how to manually enter channels or do and automatic search for channels?

I pick up the locals with an antenna also but I run the coax into the satellite receiver and let it pull in the channels instead of the TV. I'm not sure if your receiver is capable of that though.

Sounds like it's ignoring the subchannels but don't know why unless there is a setting that was enabled to hide them.

This is an issue I find ALOT while im working, its the QAM tunner going threw and putting channels where they want. If you search in the 60's and 70's you should find -1-12 or so for the sub channel, I know on another HSOforum people have figured out what channels are what, the only other way is to have the converter box do this for you, switch inputs for the HD channels only.

I was able to get most of the channels back, but now noticed a very small red "dot" on the screen that's noticable when the screen is dark. is that normal?? I've never had an lcd so I'm not sure if that should be there or not.

I had to do the auto program a couple of times before the digital channels were picked up on mine.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though.
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
