Philips SAA 7130 Not Picking Up All Cable Channels

I am Missing half of the cable channels that I get on my TV (nothing beyond channel 74). When I go into the settings menu all of the digital options are grayed out and unselectable, but the manual tells me to select these for digital television and I assume that the missing channels are the digital ones. Any Suggestions?

USUALLY WHEN AN OPTION IS GRAYED OUT IT MEANS YOU HAVE TO BUY A PREMIUM VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE TO " UNLOCK " THE GRAYED OUT AREAS. CHECK WITH YOUR TV TUNER CARD FOR UPDATED SOFTWARE OR ASK THERE TECH SUPPORT IF THIS IS THE CASE. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO : ARCLIGHT1217

How do i manually program my channels on older tv without a remote


Nothing you can do without the original remote. One cannot get into the setup pages. Replacement remotes usually don't work on this point either. They are missing this special setup button. In order to watch DVD, VCR, connect them with a SCART cable. When you switch on the player, the TV will detect this and go automaticaly to this input. If connected with RCA plugs, you can choose the input with the program Up/Dwn buttons on the TV set itself, going "lower" than channel 1.

My Vizio LCD HDTV isn't pickup up all of the cable channels, but my other older TVs are?


Did you retry a working TV again on the same input, as it looks like a case of loose contacts in the RC Jack, cable or connectors or some strands of the cable touching the ground. Then check whether your Vizio TV supports the system/format of the cable. If your cable is licensed to be used only with the other TVs, like sensing the identity of the PC used, it could also be a problem

go to the options with the remote on your tv, then do a channel scan. it will scan for any channels you are picking up. if you have basic cable you will only have a few HD channels. if you have a cable box then the cable box should show you what channels are HD

Channels are different than my old tv!


you may be able to do a manual scan ion each channel which is similar to auto scan.
Its normal for auto scan to select random channels when scanning.

No UHF channels


Sorry, looking up the Phillips PTV100, it does not support over the air broadcasting. Supports, cable and satellite reception.

The reason you are picking up The VHF channels (2-13) is they match cable channel frequencies up to this point. The UHF frequencies are not the same as the cable frequencies, even though the channel numbers seem the same.

Some other models or brands of TIVO may have this ability.

There is nothing you can do, as this is how this set works. You will need to get a new set if you want the other stations.Good Luck.
