Re: deleting a channel
Orion builds that unit and I can not find an owners manual online for it anywhere. If you want, you can buy on here:
It should tell you in there how to go about deleting and adding channels.

If I remember correctly, this is an older model set (late 1980, early 1990 I think). Many cable systems of that era didn't offer the large number of channels they do now, and the cable tuning of many sets was very limited. Most cable companies required you to use a converter box to get all the channels. So you probably aren't missing anything, the set just can't do more.
Here is how to try and get them back if they are available. On the original TV remote do the following- 1. Press the MENU button 2. Use the channel down button to select channel set 3. Select channel add/delete 4. Press volume up 5. Select channel you want to add by using the channel up/down buttons on remote. 6. When you get to the channel you want use the Volume up button and the color of the channel number should become either blue or green if it is added and it will be red if it is deleted. 7. Repeat until you have added all the channels you feel you are missing. 8. Press MENU button to exit. If the channels are still available this should get them to return. If not contact you cable provider to see if they have moved some of their channels recently or check their web site for the current channel line up.
Sounds like my cable company. I told the service guy off. I told him how the cable company is a big rip off
With that said some what you do or will need a box later. to use pay-prview or to watch HBO Showtime or a movie channel you pay for and cable channels you need a digital box.
Do you need a digial box with what you wrote you all ready has a D/A tuner bulit in your TV. Ask your do I get all the channels I watch without a Digi box if you answered Y than No you don't need a box if you see ads for a new channel you want than yes you will need a box. Call your cable comp. and ask for a channel line up. to see what channels you can get with and without a box.
Sorry to write so much but thats the only way I can answer you. I'm in the same boat I called the cable company and they told me I still needed a box I watch movies on the weekends. Well any way I Hope I Help you a LOADS.
I called our cable company about getting a converter box and it ended up I didn't need one after all. The cable rep told me to go to the menu and try the auto-programming. He was familiar with the TV I have and said that a converter box is not necessary. So, I tried the auto-programming and still didn't get all the channels...then I noticed on the menu for the channel set up there was the word "Cable" and after it it said "Off" so, I switched that to "On" and did the auto-programming, and Presto! I got all my channels.
If you are on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears this cannot be done as most tunersonly go to channel 69 . If your are on cable this can be achived by going into the menu and first making sure the tv is in the cable mode . Your set should have a section for manuelly adding or deleting or channels , simply by pushing 73 with your remote then using the onscreen menu to add this channel . Or you can just autoprogram your channels over again and this should pickup your channel . If this does not work what is the model # of your set so i can lookup the manuel if it is available. Also you can try to google the model # of your set with the phase (owners manuel) to see if you can find a free download of your set .This will also have the info your looking for . Good luck
The easy way for most of the TV's to delete a channel is to go into Menu on your remote and go to Add/Delete channels. Once you are in this screen you should have an option to delete a channel. Press that and type the channel number to be deleted. It should work. Good luck.
