Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

You probably just need to reset the tv back to antenna mode. In the TV menu you will find a channel section that will let you pick cable or air. Set to air and preform an auto-program or channel scan. Instructions vary per brand/model. Make sure your antenna is setup correctly and hooked to the appropriate input/rf jack. For analog put the rabbit ears up high, for digital keep 'em low.

This set was on a DVR cable box, but I moved it to another room, without a cable box. The problem is that I get no sound on two channels--the local ABC channel and TBS from Atlanta. I noticed that on the...


The SPA looks as if the box is just telling you that spanish audio is available. That would usually occur even if it isn't set to spanish, it is just showing it's available. Maybe try changing the audio channel? Ie. from TV to VCR back to TV etc. and make sure you don't set to SAP.


Lastly is ther an Atlanta Braves game on? Is it being simulcast on TBS and your local ABC channel? That may be the problem, it may be a problem with their telecast of the game. If this is the case, then call the cable company as it is a problem elsewhere.

Thanks!

I HAVE A SUMSUNG THAT IS HD, BUT IT'S NOT HDMI,i GET REGULAR CHANNELS, BUT WHEN I SWITH TO A HD CHANNEL, IT IS ALL SCRAMBLED? WHY?


I assume you have cable. The cable HD and digital channels are usually sent in Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM). The cable companies are required to send local channels in the clear but not so for any others. Regular (basic) channels may be clear or scrambled. USA many not be but HBO will be.
So you have 1 of 2 problems: (1) your TV does not do QAM or (2) they have scrambled the channels you want to see. Questions: (1) Have tried direct Over-the-Air (OTA, ATSC) reception for your locals? (2) Can you see the HD local channels on cable? (3) Are you paying for an HD box from the cable company to have the channels decoded? If in doubt contact the cable company.
Current Samsung TVs do do QAM and OTA HD. Alternatives are Dish or Direct to get satellite with an HD receiver using HDMI or 5-cable RCA. Costs are comparable but OTA wins, hands down. -Ken
