Question about Toshiba MW27F51 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

Channel Changing Hello, I have recently bought a different cable package that allows me to view channels 201-230, but I have no idea how to actually put those channels on through the remote. If I press the 2 and the 0 it goes to channel 20 automatically. I can't put in 2 0 1 for example. How do I do that?

Some TV's have a 115 to 125 channel limit then will go to video in and then channel 2 and start over. Your TV's tuner may not have the ability to decode those channels. My suggestion would be to get a set top box (cable box) that can access channels. Your provider should have these or can suggest where to get one. Probably less expensive than a new TV.

HDTV with descrambler, I need a channel lineup for all channels without a cable box for Suddenlink cable in Bossier City, LA (the digital numbers like 17-2...etc). I have many channels now, but need a list...


I discovered last year what you just recently discovered. Cable TV providers transmit digital signals over cable using what is known as a QAM signal. Most new TVs (but not all) are equipped with a QAM tuner (check your owners manual in the specs section). Your cable company sounds like a kinder more humane provider, just like mine. There are no federal regulations regarding what cable companies can or cannot do with QAM transmission. Most of the big providers such as Comcast scramble most or all of these signals, forcing the customer to pay extra for cable box rental. But some of the smaller providers allow all of their basic tier, non-premium channels to be transmitted freely, meaning that if you are not interested in PPV or premium channels, you don’t need a cable box. My cable provider (Service Electric Cable TV of Lehigh Valley, PA) initially did not print any QAM channel line up, so I went through each one, wrote them down, and created an Excel Spreadsheet so I had my own printed line up, which turned out to be a good idea, because my carrier has made several changes over the past year in their line up. Later, they did post a line up on their web site, but promptly made more changes without updating the line up so my advice to you is to create your own.

Quasar VV-1302: Cannot Program Cable Channels


If you let it autoprogram and all you get is channel 103. Move the TV back to the old connection and see if it autoprograms all the channels there. If that works ok then you have a problem with the cabe line that only has channel 103.

Is there a reset default setting?


Do you recieve any channels if you run the cable directly from the wall to the TV and do a channel search? You may have to switch your TV over to a different input source if you are using a box. Please email me at tina-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com for more information. Thanks!

When I try to set our TV to locate digital channels, the menu skips the channel selection when I scroll through options of picture, audio, channel, lock, setup. All the options are available.


It sounds like your TV is on a different input. If you watch your cable from an external cable box, and this box is plugged into your TV using wires that are yellow, red, and white, or red, blue, green, red and white, you're currently watching TV on a different input than the one used for the antenna. Channels in a TV are controlled by the tuner. The tuner is the silver, threaded, post on the back of a TV, DVR, converter box, or VCR, that you plug an antenna or cable wire to. The tuner contols channels while the other inputs on your TV carry a direct signal like a computer to a monitor. So when you use something other than coaxial cable to connect cable to your TV, you can't access the channel menu while on that input. To access that menu, change the TV's input or source to TV or stop when you see a channel number on the screen. You have to be on the TV or tuner input in order to access the channel menu. If you're on any other input such as, S-Video, AV1, AV2, component (Yp Br Cr), HDMI, etc. you will not be able to do a channel scan. You have to be on the right input or source.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Cant figure out how to set TV to cable setting


The company's page for this set is here. There's a link toward the bottom to download the user's manual.

If I read the manual correctly, you're out of luck without an external tuner such as a cable box. This set was made for the European market and its tuning system isn't fully compatible with that used in the US. There's a "channel swap" function which lets you reassign the channels it finds to whatever channel number you want, and it's described in the manual. I assume that's to allow for the different frequency/channel number assignments in use in all the areas it tries to cover. The set's tuner just may not be able to pick up all the channels on your cable system. As long as it gets US channel 3 or 4 correctly, you can use the set with a cable box or video recorder that properly tunes the cable channels.
