> I had comcast before but now i don't, don't use a converter box and somehow I was getting cinemax and other channels on the tv Comcast was providing Cinemax and many other channels as part of your paid services and you will not receive these unless you are a subscriber.There is a good selection of free broadcast channels unless you live outside city areas. If you do, you will then need an external antenna and probably an amplifier to get more distant signals.Auto programming will not find the channels you were receiving from Comcast so there will be only accidental channel duplication; for example, if your former channel 10 was NBC, it may be channel 7 when receiving signal from an antenna. There are essentially no more 'Analog' stations still broadcasting, they are now all 'Digital.' The abbreviations 'Std' refers to the aspect ratio (H/W) of the picture area and 'Hrc' and 'Irc' the available resolution or how many pixels and lines on the screen.
Cocast may have only transmitting NTSC Ch 2~13 only for your area, to get more channel you may have to use Comcast cable box, I am in bay area, I can get 2~35 for basic plus service, I can get 2~13 for the most simple service for less money. What is your serivce level you are paying for?
Your TV also anly has NTSC tuner, there is no QAM or ATSC turner.

You may have to call Comcast.
DTR's are available everywhere. You can also go online and purchase one if your local stores do not have. Also, keep in mind that the splitter you use must comply with the signals unless you use the Video output of DTR.
Unfortunately there is no listing. I suggest taking a little time to sit next to the television with an notepad to go through each channel one at a time to label what stations come in on what channel numbers. Sorry.
I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.
I also had this channel 5-1 freezing problem and spoke with Vizio support a few times. They thought the problem was the SSID code from the local CBS station and said they would try talking with them. I am not certain if they did this or not, but, as of mid December, my Vizio no longer has this problem.
