I discontinued Comcast and in trying to set up the channels discovered the Set Up Wizard would not show the scrren to do that because of being programmed for cable box. How can I get that scrren to change it?

    I can't get to the channel selection because the set up wizard set this up before the tv was turned on for the first time.

    The channel sub menu should be accessible, independent of the Set-up Wizard's previous settings. The documentation for the Insignia NS-L26Q-10A is available here:http://www.insigniaproducts.com/products... . You might want to try unplugging the TV to reset the unit. Then restore the unit to the default settings. In the OSD, go to Settings and press Enter. Then go down in the sub-menu to Reset to Default (it may be on the next screen). Press enter and confirm the reset. This should reset the TV to the original factory settings and will probably reset the TV source as well. Then try using the Channels > Auto Scan option to set the source and then scan for channels. Cindy Wells

Open the OSD menu and select Channels with the left/right arrows and press Enter. Next, go down in the list and highlight Auto Channel Search. Press Enter. Then use the up/down arrows to get Antenna as the highlighted selection. Press Enter again. You should see the progress as the unit goes through the OTA channels. Press Exit to get out of the Menu when the scan is finished.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

Tv setup - cannot get past auto channel


Connect the TV to the Comcast box using an HDMI cable, then set input on the TV to HDMI - that's all. You then select channels on the Comcast box , not the TV (although the TV remote can be programmed to change channels on the cable box)>

I have a Panasonic PV-V4525S VCR and I'm trying to program it to work with the Comcast cable. Right now it will only record the same channel that the TV is on and I have to tell the VCR to record channel...


If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.

Comcast cable channel one off from Tivo channel


I've never, ever heard of this problem - having been a happy TiVo user for over 15 years. The very first thing I would do is call Comcast and tell them what is occurring. How long had everything worked OK before this happened? If things were OK for a long time before this, and if your TV carrier was, likewise, Comcast for a long time; and if you haven't gotten a new TV or cable box for a long time, then the problem must rest with Comcast. It must!
In our home, with the number of movies, shows/sporting events/etc. which we record, that would be totally unacceptable!

Try this: Unplug everything (with everything turned off). Make sure your TiVo remote is good (fully charged batteries and the code is right for your TV/cable box), Wait for 10 minutes and plug everything back in, starting with TiVo, then the TV, then any other accessories.

Plug back in and do a complete restart from scratch - like you did when you first set up TiVo.

Make SURE that your receiving channel (3 or 4) is the same on both. It could be that someone accidentally has changed it - are there kids in the house?

If none of this works, get Comcast in there. That's all I can tell you. . .

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.
