You need to make sure your plugged into the cable input on the back, not the air input, if it is, go into the menue, find setup, then chanel maniagment, or auto program, or somethiln similar, then do the auto program, it will fix your problem, hope that helps, and thanks for your rating

I just got a tv (older model) flat screen Insignia. There is no hdmi on the tv. The tv i am replacing had hdmi. How do I connect the cable (digital converter box) to the tv?


Most cable boxes have a cable connection for standard antenna on older TV. Best suggestion would be to ask your cable company

Hi Someone gave me this old Sanyo TV Model # 31C4760, When I connect it with my cable it catches only basic (13 channels) instead of 60 channels. How should I see all the channels? What should I do?


If it is very old (with rotory/manual channel changer), you are out of luck unless you get a cable box from your cable company - this will let you set your TV on channel 3 or 4 and the cable box will find all stations for you. The cable box goes between your wall cable and your TV.

It your TV has an electronic tuner with a remote, try going into the setup menu and select signal source as CATV instead of antenna.

No digital channels


  1. Cable company sending something through the line. Also th insigna has a different tuner. Also can the insignia find the digital channels using an antenna?

CBS station is gone. Only shows instructions for converter box.


I live outside the Kansas City Missouri area. I was having problems receiving one station. I decided to raise my outside attenna to get better reception. In doing so, I totally lost reception on another station. I only moved it up about 6'. I had to move the attenna back down to get that station perfect again. I still cann't get the station I'm missing but I found out that moving the attenna up/down or side to side can make a huge difference. I live about 50 miles from the stations I receive. Good Luck.

Insignia 32" will not scan all channels I only get 13 channels. how can I fix this??


Make sure the TV tuning mode is set for "cable". This will be somewhere in the TV's setup menus; check your manual for all the details. If it's set for "air" as I suspect it is, only the first 13 channels will be found when connected to cable. Channels 14 and up don't get tuned in on "air". Once you've set the TV for cable, rescan channels and you should have 'em all.

Thanks for asking here. If this solution has been what you needed, please take a moment to rate it!

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

Sanyo vcr mod 900 does not play cable tv stations above channel 13


Check your set-up screen for something like a choice of HRC, IRC. Those are the different cable standards. Select one, and if that doesn't work, try the other. Of course if you have digital cable-you are out of luck and must use the cable companies converter box- and there is no way around that box.
