I want to suspend my DirecTV account for six months (until Doctor Who comes back on) or possibly even cancel the service. Can I still use this to get my local channels with a suspended account or even without DirecTV service at all? Also, I don 8767 t have an HDTV so can I use this for a standard TV and a regular antenna?
As your receiver is booting up (which can take a while), you can take a first guess at where you want to install your HDTV antenna.
Note on HDTV programming: Even if you make all the right connections, please be aware that HDTV is only in limited quantities at present. Contact your cable or satellite TV provider to see what you need to do to acquire the HDTV channels you want (including local channels). HDTV is now available for all the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) and also to an increasing number of cable stations (TNT, DiscoveryHD, Bravo, etc)
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Sorry about not replying sooner I didn 8767 t see your reply until just a few moments ago.
Even if you 8767 re not a satellite customer, you can still use an HDTV antenna to pick up your local network affiliate stations on your TV: just connect the antenna to your TV and do a channel scan (that 8767 s basically what the AM76N tuner is doing acting as a TV tuner).
Most of the time the automatic setup systems get speaker identification and channel level spot on. If you ran auto setup in the last step, the setup mic should have already figured out if you have a or surround sound system and set the speaker type and levels as well as crossover if that is part of the included configuration process. If you want to manually double check everything, however, you can do so with an SPL meter. An SPL meter is used to measure how loud a sound is and can be purchased from radio shack for about $55. You simply point the SPL meter up at the ceiling, ear height, at the primary listening position and set it to "C-weighted" and "slow response".

Splitting both standard television and HDTV allows homeowners to watch the same content on both televisions. This works well for sports bars and being able to move from room to room while enjoying the same program, but if users want to watch two different programs, they need to purchase a second receiver or make sure that their current receiver has dual tuner technology. Dual tuner receivers often feature two separate ports designed for connecting two televisions. This process does not require any splitters. Simply use the cables that came with the receiver, and connect the cables to the back of each TV.
Xbox 865: The Xbox is pretty easy to setup. Turn on Dolby Digital in the Settings menu and set the resolution to 6585p. Newer Xbox 865s have an HDMI output, but older ones will need to use and optional Component video (red/green/blue) and a TOSlink optical digital cable for surround sound.
