Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV
If you hook up the coaxial cable to the tv it does not work.
Are you sure your cable coax source is broadcasting any unencrypted digital channels, and is the signal strenth relatively good? In the Channel Scan, you need to also specify the source/input type as digital, and be sure to use the coax connector marked DIGITAL Cable (or similar). Begin the autoscan--it will take a while as the TV tries to tune any/all digital signals--most of which, if you're cable provider is like 90% out there (interested in profits), this might take 15-20 minutes, and will likely end up in lotsa black non-broadcasting detections (placeholders for on demand content), but hopefully, you'll find a 1/2 dozen or so 'clear' unencrypted. If you know the channel of a KNOWN digital local, tune to it, even if the picture is not initially visible. The lock-on takes a few seconds and if a signal is weak, it may take a long while if it can lock on at all. Usually, you'll find your local PBS stations on unencrypted channels from your cable provider, along with major network tv stations (NBC,ABC,FOX,CBS), but it all depends on what the cable provider allows. Don't expect them to tell you what exactly is free either! Underground webs will list your provider, Google to find out what to expect, and don't expect what you find to be all accurate. If you're in a decent reception area, and have any sort of an antenna, you'd likely pick up some of the OTA HD broadcasts, maybe even with just a coathanger :), just to verify that your QAM/OTA tuner is functioning.
