what could be wrong with the tv..

June 26, 2005

We have 3 tv’s in our house. The first connection goes to the parent’s room, then it goes to my room, then it ends up in the living room.

The parent’s television picks up FOX just fine, and their tv is about 10 years old.

In my room, i have 2 tv’s. One of them is hooked up with cable, the other isn’t doing anything. It picks up FOX just fine.

But, in the living room with our brand new somethingity inch sony television, reception on fox has been poor. The audio has a thin layer of static, and the the video is crappy.

All other channels work fine, it’s just fox.

This grows to be an inconvience when watching sunday night’s fox programming.

So, i’m trying to figure out what could be wrong with the connection.

If anybody has any idea what might be wrong with it, let me know.

have a nice day.

    Start with that.

    Is this cable?

    Are they pre-configured; or did you splice them yourself?

    When it goes from your room to the living room, does it do it through a splitter? Try a different splitter.

    Even though you are only noticing a problem with one channel, it sounds like a connection problem with the cable or a bad splitter.

    I’ll check each of those. I’m thinking about hooking up the old tv. since this newer / bigger tv is kinda broken.


  3. Well, you kinda left the “broken” bit out of the description of the new tv. -=

    i was referring to my tv.

    See, this tv used to be in the living room, until i kinda fried it, this causes video on the tv to take up to 5 minutes to start.

    it’s alot bigger than the other tv, so, i just took it.

    I had that problem with one of my TVs
    I called the cable company, and they brought out some plug thing that plugs into the cable outlet and the power outlet. This increases the signal and everything worked fine.
    I’ll look to see who makes it tomorow and report back.

    A few of my channels do something like that as well like from 8-10 but I think its the wall part and havent bothered to get them out there to fix it :/
