I have a 50" big screen Mitsubishi model VS-50609 bought in 2001.
All of a sudden, I can no longer watch TV. Just hash (snow).
I was watching a recorded program on my stand alone DVR and when done, I switched back to TV and no picture on any channel.
I can get all my channels to watch with the DVR on but nothing if the DVR is off. Am I using the tuner of the DVR in that respect?
Could it be the Tuner of the TV that failed?
I am on cable TV. My bedroom TV works fine.
I have an Antenna A and B connection point. I connected my incoming Cable to the B and did a search with no luck so I connected back up to A and did a scan for our channels and as before, No luck. Just snowy screen.
I am now searching, trying to find something to my liking to replace that TV. Being it is analog, I figure time to let it go.
If you like it, why not use it as is w/o the tuner?
Because I can't watch TV while a program is being recorded and it is a pain having to use a remote (the DVR) that does not have the features that the TV remote has like jump button, pip, info, etc, etc. Plus----Having to have the DVR on all the time to watch TV.
If I were you, I'd just not use the antenna/cable inputs and use the component video plugs only.

I am on cable TV and have to use the cable Input in order to receive the stations from the TV provider. With the company's cable, I plug into the Input of the DVR and with another cable from the Output of the DVR to the Input of the TV.
