Tonight I purchased a Sanyo widescreen LCD HDTV, model DP26648. I connected everything as it was on my old TV. I get excellent reception on the analog channels as well as the video 1, but on channel 3, the channel that I always watch my satellite programming there is background snow.
I have a C-Band satellie (big dish). I've tried other channels 4,5,6,7, but get no picture on these. I'm sure this is probably a simple fix, but I don't have the technical skill/mindset to figure this out. I'm 60 and just got my first computer this year.
The other tv's hooked up to the same cable do not have this snow, so I suspect the problem is something I've done or haven't done.

likely a mainboard or power supply capacitor issue.
if you have the soldering skills fix it, otherwise time to replace the TV.
If you can de-solder and solder in new capacitors make sure you are using high quality capacitors be very causious of capacitors purchased from auction sites.

Connect the cable to your TV's antenna input jack. Through the TV setup menu, perform a digital cable search. This is a separate operation from the full channel scan. The TV manual says this may take up to 10 minutes, so be patient. The set should find the channels on your system. When you want to watch TV, press the INPUT button on your remote to select Digital RF as the source. Press INPUT again to select any other source (DVD, etc.) you have connected when you want to watch that.
I was wrong about needing a converter. This TV has a tuner that can pick up the cable channels if they use a system called QAM. Verizon says QAM-capable sets don't need a box for non-scrambled or premium channel, so you should be good once you have the TV scan channels.
I couldn't find the DP26648 manual at Sanyo's site, so my solution is based on the DP26647 manual. They should be similar. You can download the manual here if you don't have the manual for your set.
