How Do I Tune in a Maxim 11-44 Combo TV?

Updated February 21, 2017

The Maxim 11-44 Combo is a 15-inch TV that includes a built-in DVD player for watching videodiscs or viewing programs when the unit is connected to a signal source such as cable TV. The combo unit was manufactured by California-based Maxim mainly for sale in the United Kingdom and has since been discontinued. Tuning the Maxim 11-44 is not significantly different from tuning any other type of TV, using either the supplied remote control or the buttons on the front of the set.

Connect the coaxial cable from the source signal to the "RF IN" jack on the back of the Maxim 11-44, turning the cable ring to the right to tighten the connection.

Press the "Power" button on the front of the 11-44 or use the supplied remote control to turn on the set.

Press the "Up Channel" or "Down Channel" button to tune the Maxim to either Channel 3 or Channel 4 depending on the directions that come with your source component, such as a cable set-top box. The unit must be tuned to one or the other to receive signals, so test on Channel 3, and if it doesn't produce a signal then switch to Channel 4.

Press the "DVD" button to switch the combo for use with the built-in DVD player.
