Figuring out the TV channels for Comcast using the Sharp remote

I just bought a Sharp LC46SB54U. The picture is better when I run the cable connection directly to the TV, instead of going through the Comcast converter box. However, many of the channels are not the same as the "usual" Comcast channels. This is especially true regarding high defintion channels and premium channels. For example, the FOX HD channel through the Comcast box & remote is 213. However, when I use the Sharp remote [without the converter box] it has the Fox HD channel as 45.1. Frankly, I found it by accident; and, I have no clue where the premium channels are, or whether other high definition channels are. Is there any listing of the Sharp channels, as shown through the Sharp remote?

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.

Have a curtis tv , trying to run autoscan, it runs, but it doesn't locate any channels. I have a comcast converter box also. Not sure why autoscan isn't working. Or do I have to set up my comcast...


For the auto scan to detect there must be channels present on the CABLE that is connected to the RF input- TUNER INPUT- of the TV.
So check with your cable operator for the channels and you can connect. however if you are using a digital box then the channels are memorised on the box as only the output of the box is connect to the video/audiop inputs of the TV. if so select line in/video 1/2.

DOES THE SHARP T V MODEL lc46sb54u HAVE ADIGTAL TURNER, IF SO HOW DO YOU ACTIVATE THE TURNER


it has a digital tuner that also does analog channels. You dont need to active it. I fyou are trying to get the channels over an antena, go into the menu and do a auto scan for channels. Set the auto scan as "cable". If you are trying to get cable channels over 19 it wont work without a box. The digital channels are scrambled for cable.

People faces and a lot of other items on the screen are not natural looking, kind of like a manaquin. Stripes are distorted. It is brand new and I was wondering if the problem is the tv or something else....


On this television you would need to remove the Comcast digital cable box. This tv does not need it. Then you will press the menu button and choose either the channel or the setup category. You will then need to locate the auto ch memory or ch setup subcategory. Then you will select it by pressing enter after scroling down to it. Next you will scroll down to automatic search or ch search and press enter. Select search start for just digital channels and press enter. It may direct you to select yes and then enter. After the television is done searching the 135 channels it will come back to channel 2.1 or the lowest channel you receive. You can then go through your channels with the ch button on your Sharp remote control. The picture can further be adjusted with the av mode button on your remote if you press it repeatedly if you remote control has one.

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

My Sharp LC46sb54u does not let you program digital channels from the antenna. The option is deleted on the setup menu. How do you get the digital option back? The manual says once you program channels for...


Go to page 19. Make sure antenna setting is on DIGITAL
Then go to page 11. Change AIR/CABLE option to cable.
Then run the "Analog & Digital Search Start". The digital option should come back.

Try to reload the the remote by using the universal remote code for comcast cable.This number should be available in your owners manual or on the Sharp website. You should search the websites frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections for you model of television to see if someone already has had the problem answered.

No sound on NON HD channels


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.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"


I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.
