You can get some hd channels without a cable box.
run the auto channel programming which may take 20 minutes. you will probably find the hd channels around 110. you will need to make a list of your favorites as the channels are numbered 110.1 110.2 110.3.

Try identifying which caption is from the TV and which is from the cable box by turning the TV Closed Caption on and off while you have to sets of captioning. This will show you which closed caption never turns off.

I just purchased a Sony Bravia 52" 1080 HD 120 Hz flat panel and upgraded my comcast service to HD as well. At times, the "last" button will not work to switch to the previous channel or if it does, it...


If this is still problematic ask Comcast to service the problem and request one of the older, larger, silver HD with HDMI capable boxes. The other option is to use the component cable with the new boxes. I had the same problem and luckily a good technician who took his job seriously! I think I overheard him saying too that a DVR is an option as well, but you, if the technician doesn't offer, would have to state an argument for why you should not be charged extra for using one of those. Hope this helps? Nice to get to the root of problems! I'm keeping my fingers crossed because they had to order the older box. None were left in stock?

If i buy a full hd tv,instead of hd ready,can i view HD PROGAMS from outdoor arial without anymore setup. thank you A R SHEARING.


You do not want to buy HD ready (ready means it will accept HD sources), Ful HD TV will have ATSC digital tuner for off the air signal, you will want it to have QAM tuner also so if you decide to get cable, you can get unencryped HD programs without using the cable box (that is what I am using with my Entended BASIC Comcast cable without using/renting their box, Comcast gives three free boxes, then you have to rent the rest if you have more than 3 TVs at about $7 a month).

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

New vizio 26'' hdtv seems sharp from a distance, but pixalated and


it is important to understand the difference in digital cable and high def. high definision is on a fiber optic display alwing milions of pixels per square inch on your tv. the resolution effects your fuzzy picture you are recieving . the only real way to fix that fuzzy dull picture is to get a HD box from your cable provider and an HDMI cable to conect it to your HD TV. this is the only connection you will need for picture and top line sound. In the end the fee is usually $9.95 or less a month and it is well worth the difference in quality of TV viewing.

Am i getting hdtv with just cable feed?


Depending on your cable provider, some of the HD channels may be present. If so, these are ususally located in the upper channel numbers. It sounds like you are receiving some of the HD lineup. A cable box will probably allow you to view more HD channels including the premium HD channels if you subscribe to them. You should not be noticing a delay with the HD channels only. If this is what you are experiencing without a cable box, then it would be an issue with the HD tuner built into your TV set. LG customer service can let you know if there are any software updates available for yourmodel that can resolve this. Additionally, if you are getting your sound from an Home Theater system then you will notice an echo if using the TV's built in speakers at the same time. This is sometimes mistaken as an audio delay. If you are using a home theater system, be sure to disable the speakers that are built into your system.

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.
