JVC LT 43E488 LCD HD TV cable box doesn't get local channels
We recently decided to hook up a cable box to our JVC flat panel tv. All channels work fine except for the local channels, they display message "this channel will be a available in few moments" but the channels never come in. We have tried 3 different boxes and each box works fine on all other tv's in the house except this one. Cable company said we need amplifier so we put one on but it didn't help. JVC says problem is with cable. We have never ran across this problem before. Anyone have a suggestions?

switch the cable box from one tv to another one see if the box you changed works on the tv set you removed the cable box from on all channels if it does work after you swap out the box then it has to be bad!!!
Try using the video input connectors using the front panel buttons to select. or hook up the cable box so your sure the TV is receiving the signal and then select autoprogamming through the front panel buttons
the tv has a configaration that conveys the sets focus on both audio and video performance. full hd resolution of 1920-1080 pixels.
hdmi inputs allow connection of the generation of 1080p sources for the systems which offer 1080p outputs
You probably have to find your original remote to the set and go through setup in your menu. On most sets, there will be a menu item which will allow you to switch from Cable mode to Air mode. If you have no Cable connected, then you must set tuner in Air mode.
If you are using an external device to run on channel three, then try this:
Make sure device (rather it's a vcr or game console), is hooked up to your Antenna Input connector. Also, some of these devices will have a small hidden switch on back that says 3 and 4. Move the switch to 3 position. Turn on device. Go into TV menu and do a Channel scan. This should auto program any device hooked up to the TV antenna input jack to channel three.
Keep in mind that you may not receive anything by Feburary of this year without an HD converter box to tune in channels with and outdoor antenna.
IYou have to have your comcast
box tuned to a channel that is broadcast in HD. On your Comcast remote
hit menu. This will bring up several icons, one is HD. Select that icon
and it will bring up the TV
Guide for just HD channels. Select one and tune to that channel. Once
your on that channel use your original remote and hit menu, then
advance features, then go down to video display and change it from 480
to 980 or 1080. Let me know if this helps.
You can use a cable box providing that its HD option is working. With many of the cable companies, you have to pay to have the HD option in the cable box activated. Then you have to pay subscription for the HD channels. That is the way it is at where I am located. Without the HD subscription active on our cable boxes this feature is dead!
The only reliable way for you to know if the HD option works in your TV itself is to get a known to be working HD source such as an HD DVD player and try it out.
you have cable and the stations are still snowy? could be tuner do you have a box or directly hooked up to tv, try unhooking box if you have one and directly hook it up to tv if you havent already done so
