I don't now how i recive tv chanels in hd


Your source has to be in HD like a local broadcast TV station currently broadcasting in HD which you get with a VHF/UHF antenna connected to the HDTV. Most primetime TV shows are in HD so using the antenna on the HDTV is all you need. Press MENU on your TV remote and make sure you have ANTENNA set instead of cable to get local TV stations.

You also could use your local cable TV provider. You would need digital cable service and a HD cable box with HDMI or component video cable hookup to the HDTV. HD channels are typically above 100. Call your cable TV provider for more details.

Read your user manual for the LG TV. Ask for help from family, friends, neighbors, local electronics shops.

My tv is attached to a cable inpt but no cable box i am able to watch all cable channels by switching tv chanels,is the inpt digital or analog


The signal you are viewing is an analog signal.

The cable companies take the signals for your basic channels and resend them through the cable as analog so the customers that still plug the cable direct to their TV can still get some programming without the added costs of digital cable boxes on every TV.

This option will be slowly phased out over time but for now it is available.

I am trying to hook up a digital labs, 19'' lcd tv/dvd combo and when i do the initial channel scan it doesnt pick up anything from the satelite at all, i have hooked them toghther anyway i can think of...


Most HDTVs have ATSC, QAM and NTSC (analog) tuners. It sounds like yours does not have an NTSC (analog) tuner. QAM tuners only pick up digital cable channels. You may need to switch to your cable company's digital service if your not already on it. Call your cable company for further info

Do i need a digital box-i have your 27 '' analog/digital tvmy cable co is 'pushing digital box (Shaw) thanks loads


Sounds like my cable company. I told the service guy off. I told him how the cable company is a big rip off

With that said some what you do or will need a box later. to use pay-prview or to watch HBO Showtime or a movie channel you pay for and cable channels you need a digital box.

Do you need a digial box with what you wrote you all ready has a D/A tuner bulit in your TV. Ask your do I get all the channels I watch without a Digi box if you answered Y than No you don't need a box if you see ads for a new channel you want than yes you will need a box. Call your cable comp. and ask for a channel line up. to see what channels you can get with and without a box.

Sorry to write so much but thats the only way I can answer you. I'm in the same boat I called the cable company and they told me I still needed a box I watch movies on the weekends. Well any way I Hope I Help you a LOADS.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

How to tune my digital chanels in my bush lcd tv


i just saw a post which I believe will solve my problem (I connected to the wrong coax antenna plug). I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure that is the problem.

Here's the post from akai_owner from 2007:

Look at the back of your TV. Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs. Wait one second between pushes. You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen. It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4. If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one. If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active). Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.
