DVRs are compatible with most any cable, satellite or antenna setup. Your exact setup instructions will vary according to the type of DVR you purchase. You'll need to review your owner's manual for more information, but here are some tips: . Depending on your current home entertainment arrangement,… you'll basically hook up your cable line to your DVR, plug your DVR into an electrical outlet, and leave your cable box as is. If you have services like TiVo or RePlay, you'll follow on-screen instructions for setting up your program guide and recording your cable channels. . If you have a VCR or receiver, your setup instructions may be slightly different. See your DVRs manufacturer's manual for exact instructions. Notes about setup if you use DVR services like TiVo: . Some DVR services (like TiVo) require that you hook your DVR to your phone line (instead of plugging it into an outlet). The TiVo service does daily downloads of your cable company's program listings to your DVR during a pre-set time. If you have DSL and want to use a service like TiVo, place a filter on the phone line plugged into your TiVo DVR. . Some may be incompatible with HDTV and C-band satellite systems. If you need help with your DVR hardware and the answers aren't in the manual, visit your DVR manufacturerï¿½s web site to locate tutorials, FAQs or a support center phone number.

Answer . I've been searching the web feverishly after the USA's dominate crushing of the lesser FIBA Americans teams and I can't find an American television network, free or pay that will broadcast the EuroBasketball 07 Championship. It is a shame, because the quality of EuroBasketball is defin…itely worth watching. I have found the link to EuroBasketball's world broadcast list.

Analog tv now uses mostly vhf-uhf frequencies for the standard network TV. UHF was added in the 60s for local urban TV signals with the addition of another tuner years ago. Any ham radio operator who has played with VHF 2 meters, or uhf , 450 mhz up, knows that UHF has significantly reduced range an…d is reduced to mostly line of site reception. So guess what sports fans, rural users , with their shiny new converter boxes hooked up to vhf antennas are SCREWED!!! Unless you get an extended range UHF antenna , you will not get TV. You may not get digital TV either if you are too far from UHF digital transmission even with a new uhf "digital' antenna. So, this whole thing is going to cause CHAOS to many rural and other users. Real good planning guys! Million of Americans will have no TV.....!!!!! Stay tuned for the fun on Feb 17, 2009!!@!!! The following is a update. Actually, there is no such thing as a digital antenna, all antennas are the same but a better antenna is one with a amplifier built in and mounted on the antenna itself. This helps the HDTV receive a stronger signal. An exception would be if you can see the transmitting tower from you location, no amplifier is needed. Always buy the VHF/UHF antenna with highest gain you can mount. ( Full Answer )
After Feb 17, 2009, all analog television broadcasting will be discontinued and will become digital.
February 17, 2009. However, most TV stations will have the options of leaving their analog transmitters for a while longer, if they so choose. How long? Not known, yet, but most will probably shut them off for simple reasons of economics.
Tuning for digital transmissions is complicated because the picture comes in perfect, not at all, or perfect with sporadic corruptions, which you don't see right away when tuning. For more about selecting an antenna and tuning it, read on... . After finding the direction and distance of all the tr…ansmitting towers for digital television in the area (from the customized map at www.antennaweb.org), the next step would be to choose an antenna, hook it up, and aim it. . The antenna does not have to be "digital ready". Antennas are pretty much the same for analog and digital TV. (However, it is smart to know the characteristics of digital broadcasts in your area because of the difficulty in tuning to them.) You can start with whatever antenna you have, and if it does not work well enough, then research and buy a more appropriate one for your area. If you have no antenna at all, then try sticking the center wire tip of a cable TV cable into a potato or an orange--just to get an idea of the basic reception in your area. It will last a couple weeks until the vegetable dries out. . You need to be particularly choosy about your antenna if you want to receive channels 2-6, and to a lesser extent for channels 7-13. Channels 14-83 are the easiest to receive digitally, and most any antenna may do for those depending upon the distance and direction. If you are not satisfied with your reception on 2-13, but get 14-83 just fine, then you may want to just be patient rather than investing in an antenna: because of the large degree of difficulty with tuning these stations for digital transmissions, most stations are soon moving to the UHF band, channels 14-83. If you cannot wait, then focus on antennas designed specifically for both VHF and UHF (not only UHF in this case). In deciding whether you need a VHF antenna or not, you must realize that the stations have been renumbered and no longer represent the frequencies they broadcast on. For example, Digital channels 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 2-4, 3-1, 5-1, 8-1, etc., are not necessarily broadcasted on VHF channels 2-8. To find out the broadcasted channels you must refer to a list like the one at www.antennaweb.org. (However, that website seems to only show the analog and dash-1 digital channels, not the dash-2 thru 5 channels, so another source must be sought). . If all the stations that you want are in the same direction from your house (within 20 degrees or so), then you can use a directional antenna and aim it right at the middle of the stations.. Outdoor antennas come in 2 basic types, directional and multidirectional. Multidirectional antennas do not have to be aimed. To aim a directional outdoor antenna, follow the directions from the manufacturer.. Indoor antennas are another story. They often come with no documentation, either in the box or on the manufacturer's website regarding tuning or aiming. They may only say turn the antenna until you get the best reception. This works fine for analog broadcasts because you can see the difference in quality when you turn the antenna. But digital broadcasts are different because the picture is either perfect or non-existent, or it corrupts at odd times and stops for a while (closed captioning may turn to gibberish, blocks of the picture turn colors or look like lower resolution, the screen freezes, and then a few seconds later it may restart). . To tune an indoor antenna for digital reception the best method may be to try different positions of the rabbit ears, disc, and dial, and write them down methodically, doing a new complete scan for channels each time, and then count and write down how many channels are found each time. This is a better method for digital because the number of channels found is a better indication of signal quality than the visible picture quality. Be sure not to do manual scans because those function only to add new channels not to count the number of channels receivable. This method would work best when all towers are in one direction.. If stations are broadcasting from different directions, then you should write down not only how many stations are detected, but which ones. Then your job is to come up with multiple settings combinations that get all the different stations you want at different times. After you have discovered them all, then do manual scans in each setting (if your TV has that function) to add all the stations. Then, keep a note close to your TV about which settings to use when actually watching each station. You may need only 2 settings to cover all your favorite stations (and in most areas only one setting will probably be satisfactory).. The real problem with rabbit ear antennas is that they are not very directional, because they pick up all kinds of shadow signals bouncing off trees, mountains, and buildings. So they are not very predictable. Look into a truly directional antenna (indoor or outdoor), or a high-quality omnidirectional antenna (but beware of fake quality--just sticking some discs and dials on a good-looking design does not mean it will receive the stations you want). . Since modern digital TVs have computers, one function really missing from them (exists in some models?) is a function to evaluate the tuning quality. Wouldn't it be great if your TV reported the signal quality it is receiving for each channel? I am not an engineer, but from what I know of the way digital TV works, it seems like such an easy function that I wonder if it is not already built in to TVs, but just not publicized. I am definitely looking for this function to appear soon. ( Full Answer )

The reason for digital transmission was cited as a method to free up broadcast spectrum and better use existing allocations of rthe spectrum. Using the same frequency range using digital transmission more content could be delivered using the same ranges and for certain spectrum alloactions they exis…ting allocations could be shrunk and more segments licensed out.. e.g. (simplified numbers used). 100-200 Might be an allocation for analog broadcast. Provides one channel for television with stereo sound.. or. 100-200 Using digital broadcast could provide 2 channels. One standard definition and one high definition with full surround sound.. or. 100-150 For a single station in digital. 151-200 for a single station in digital. And other various combinations. By going digital they can take advantage of various compression and encoding techniques that were not available via analog broadcast.. Additional arguments offered for the transition were far more technical in nature including but not limited to broadcast tower configurations, power requirements for broadcast facilities, better handling of adverse weather, sub channel information (station ID embedded in the signal), and so on.

Hello - from all my research it is clear that even digital signals can be degraded by weather conditions. Contrary to statements that claim 'you either get a digital signal or not', you can receive digital signals that have been weakened by weather conditions. I live in Ohio, and am fortunate to be …able to use a plain 'bowtie' indoor antenna (no amplifier either) with my TV, and generally get excellent reception. However, when the weather includes heavy rain and especially high winds, my digital reception can randomly blank out, or the picture freezes, or shows random frozen pixels, or loses audio. Considering the high cost and very poor customer service of my local cable provider, I am more than happy to put up with my free, if occasionally less than perfect, digital reception. If you online search "weather conditions and digital TV reception", you can read supporting information. Cheers. ( Full Answer )
What TV stations will broadcast the Super Bowl in Iowa? Will WHO channel 13 carry the entire game? If anyone knows please let me know. Thanks, Robert
That depends on a number of factors. Antenna height both receive and transmit. Transmitter power and antenna gain. About 15 miles max.
Yes....but it will only be broadcast on the NASA tv channel (which is primarily on DirectTV or Satellite, not on most cable) at 10:58pm.
In the US, CBS, NBC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the Tennis Channel broadcast all the tournaments.
It's a microwave transmitter...literally. They usually run from about 100 watts and the one's we used would do as much as 2,000 watts, if needed. I've no doubt that there are more powerful units out there but these seemed to work OK here in the Midwest for the most part.
Sort of, but not really. A satellite dish is designed to look only in one direction and amplify the signals it receives to make weaker signals acceptable. Using it as a broadcast antenna would be very inefficient and difficult just because it can only look in one direction at a time. It would also p…robably take a soldering iron and some hacking skills just to make it work at all. So, in short, you'll be better off picking up a cheap pair of rabbit ears at the local hardware store (5-20 usd). ( Full Answer )

You can find anything you want on the internet. If you had provided the Model Number of your television, we could have helped you by googling your TV's model number, etc. Therefore, we have to be more general. Generally, the answer depends on one thing -- does the TV have a DTV [digital televisio…n] tuner. It is possible that an older LCD television has only an analog tuner, which would make it the same as an old, traditional TV except for the TV screen. The manual might say "Digital Ready," which is a marketing term used by such old LCD televisions. Un-abbreviated, Digital Ready means that you have to add a DTV tuner. At the time these TVs were made, there were no DTV tuners, so you were preparing for the future. Today, yesterday's future is now. The $40 government coupons can be put towards a digital TV set-top box that is a digital TV tuner. All convert the digital signals from an antenna to analog outputs on Channel 3 or 4, which you can connect to your TV with a coax cable, and then tune your TV to Channel 3 or 4. The $40 to $60 set-top boxes take a perfectly high-resolution digital TV signal, and convert it to an old fashioned, mundane analog TV signal. Boxes in this price range (and all that are covered by the coupon) do NOT offer a digital output, which would offer advantages like improved clarity and higher resolution (more and finer lines that compose the picture). If that were my situation, I would find out the maximum resolution my digital-ready TV were capable of displaying (such as 720 or 1080 lines) and I would make sure I got a set-top box whose output [to the television] [numerically] matches the TVs resolution. That will mean something NOT covered by the coupon program, and much more costly. If you want to watch digital TV is all its glory, it will be worth it. Newer LCD TVs that include [internal] digital tuners will have manuals that mention "Tuner: NTSC, ATSC, QAM." These are true DTVs [Digital Televisions]. Interpretation: NTSC is old-fashioned analog; ATSC is the new, free, over-the-air-to-your-antenna digital broadcasts, and QAM is an unscrambled Cable-TV signal. Regarding QAM, you would only be able to take advantage of the QAM capabilities of a digital television if you have Cable TV service. In that case, you might stick the Cable into your digital television, and see if your Cable TV company is delivering any unscrambled QAM signals that a digital TV can receive, direct off the cable without a Cable TV box. However, for the purposes of this conversation, your question about digital broadcasts, we're mostly intereseted in ATSC. If your television's manual says your television has a DTV tuner, then all you have to do is figure out how to switch your TV from its Analog tuner to its Digital tuner. That will be just a few clicks of the remote control to switch to the Digital tuner, and then another couple of clicks to get your TV to "search" for digital TV signals [perhaps called "Autotune"] -- where the TV goes through the whole TV band and "saves" digital TV channels that it detects. When the search procedure is completed, you can just hit the Channel Up or Channel Down buttons to scroll through the saved channels. And, if you don't have the manual for your television anymore, then get the Model Number from some tag glued to your TV in a hidden location. Google the Model Number; maybe the manual is available as a free download, or is at least available for a few bucks. Also, perhaps now that you have an idea what functions you're looking for in your TV, you might not need a manual to determine whether your TV has a digital tuner or not. Does Autotune only find Analog signals? If you switch the "input" to Digital TV, does that lead you to an Autotune for digital signals? or only a dead-end? Best luck, -Neil- ( Full Answer )
Only if the TV has a digital (ATSC) tuner. If it has an analog (NTSC) tuner only, it will not work with over-the-air digital broadcasts. In that case you'll need some sort of converter.
Well unfortunately there's no DVR to help you out there. However you can run out to the store and you get a cheap-o DVD player with a simple recording device on it and do it that way, or go to a flea market or something and you can get a VCR and record it that way. I'm afraid there really is no bett…er way than that. ( Full Answer )
You can't unless the station is broadcasting English on the SAP audio channel. Most don't.
There are currently two aspect ratios used in television broadcasting. 4 : 3 is the early standard and has been around for decades. 16 : 9 is the widescreen format and is far more recent. The UK and Germany have adopted 16 : 9 as a standard over the past decade and virtually all program content is p…roduced as widescreen. Other European countries are following suit.. North America, on the other hand, has not moved to widescreen for standard definition television. Almost all SD content is produced in the 4 : 3 aspect ratio. High definition is exclusively widescreen. Any HD broadcast will be in 16 : 9 format. In Europe, this does not demand any change in the screen format because of the move to widescreen some years ago. North America is now seeing the change in television screen formats to accomodate HD but most programs are still in SD - leaving a gap at the sides of the image when viewed on an HD screen. As more programs are broadcast in HD, so the problem will fade away but it is safe to say that the format differences will be evident for some years to come. ( Full Answer )
It depends on whether it's a Regional or Nationally televised game as to which network broadcasts the game. Normally, it's WJZ-TV (CBS Affiliate), though occasionally it's Baltimore's FOX network affiliate, WBFF. For Nationally televised games, it's normally ESPN (SNF and TNF games).
ABC-TV or ABC-DT has been HD for years, might be your local station or cable company isn't.
To broadcast pictures, television stations use the methods of progressive and interleaf scanning. Make that interlace scanning.
Television broadcasting is a constantly evolving process. The question suggests that changes in a channel's output are being noticed and it's entirely possible. The changeover from analog to digital production and the change from analog to digital transmission have both involved significant changes …for studios and broadcasters and on top of that, the moves towards HD broadcasting have demanded even more changes. Now that the digital broadcasting change is largely completed, production facilities are now looking to incorporate HD systems as their next generation of equipment. It makes little commercial sense to purchase SD only equipment now HD equipment is falling in price. As studios and broadcast facilities replace equipment, it is common to upgrade to HD compatible hardware even if the station is not currently offering an HD output. Broadcast equipment has a typical operating life of 10 years, so buyers are looking a decade ahead when they make a purchase. As equipment changes, there will be subtle, or even obvious changes, in the output of a station. Each new piece of equipment offers an opportunity to improve output performance so we can expect to see changes from time to time. ( Full Answer )
What improvements to broadcast television and videotapes does high-definition and digital television broadcasting bring?
pictures will have better quality because of an increase in the number of pixels and a change in the aspect ratio of the picture.
Whether digital TV recorders are included with subscriptions to cable or satellite TV service depends on the provider. Most require a specific payment package (above basic) to receive digital TV recorders.
I don't think any tv station is required to do this. It falls on the providers to perform this task, the stations will provide their info to the providers (cable or satellite).

In North America, almost all commercial television stations have ceased to broadcast analog signals. However, there are a very few small commercial stations and some non-commercial community channels that are still licensed to transmit analog signals. They are generally stations of very limited outp…ut power and where conversion to digital would be financially difficult for the organization. ( Full Answer )
All of the TV satellites, and most of the weather ones, are at different spots on a big circular orbit, directly over the equator and about 22,200 miles above it.
Broadcast television stations are heavily reliant on communication with other television production organizations and content delivery companies. Although land based communications are becoming ever faster, the television industry has been built on satellite communication systems due to the very mo…bile nature of news and event gathering production units. Live news feeds can be obtained from almost anywhere in the world with a satellite transmission. The signal can be transported around the world an back to base stations with ease. TV stations use several satellites for incoming and outgoing signals, hence the array of dishes, all of which can be active at any time. Unlike domestic satellite dishes, commercial dishes need to be capable of receiving low power transmissions from satellites that are not always in ideal locations. The large size of the dishes allows higher signal levels to be captured, from satellites that many be low in the sky and also overcome the problem of weather related dropout occasionally experienced by residential dishes.

Can you interfere with the TV station's broadcasts if the TV station relies on the electricity supply?
Let us ignore the small detail of laws preventing people tampering with public mains supplies, even if many are linked to anti-terrorism legislation. Tampering with electricity can be harmful to your health and to your freedom. Interrupting the mains supply to almost all broadcasters will result i…n the redundant power supplies operating. The vast majority of facilities have second systems in case of any failure, whether that is in signal processing equipment, cables, connectors, video storage etc. Mains power is no exception and studios will have battery based back up systems that will restore power to critical equipment without missing a beat. Generators then have a short amount of time to start and run up to speed to take on the load for a longer period of time. The result for viewers - The viewing pleasure just keeps on going like nothing happened. ( Full Answer )
