NO CATV working on Curtis RT700

How do I get cable to run through the Curtis RT700? I've tried going through an RF Modulater because the cable provided has one input to TV and a red & yellow connector for CATV source. I'm assuming a RF Modulater would be necessary, but can't seem to get it to work. I then tried the auto search function for the channels, but it still seems to be picking up the signal from the antenna, not the cable. In doing this, only a few local channels are picked up. Ideas?

Re: NO CATV working on Curtis RT700

Yes if the unit is capable of picking up cable, there is a channel setup menu in the main menu. You half to switch it over to the cable mode. it should be in the owners manual. Good Luck

How do I tune the channels

Go to menu, then make sure tv is set to AIR and that is NOT CATV unless you have cable.
Then find the "autoprogram" option and select it. It will scan all available channels

How do i hook up my 16-454 to my verizon fios cable?

I am not sure what a FIOS use, but I was able to split my cable connection and was connect my regular TV AND portable tv with the cable.

Look at your fios set up box, behind the box, there should be something that would say "TO TV" or "VIDEO OUT" or "TO TV/VCR"

Usually, the cable coming out from there goes to your regular TV. So instead of your regular TV, you can connect that with your portable TV.

AS FOR MY CASE (Having 2 tv's),

1. I removed the cable that is connected to the wall (RF IN or From WALL or CABLE IN).
2. I hooked that end to the "IN" part of a 3 way splitter
3. I bought a short cable and connected one end to the Cable Box and the other end to the OUT of the splitter
4. I bought a longer cable and connected one end to the portable TV and the other end to the OUT of the splitter.

5. Then I turned on the TV and pressed MENU
6. I clicked the right arrow until I see ANTENNA. I pressed the down button to choose CATV instead of AIR.
7, I did auto scanning.
My portable TV now has the basic channel while the big TV (since it is connected to the cable box) has the added digital channels. Nevertheless, it is great to have both so when I want to sleep, my hubby can just use the small tv

Making the TV VHF plus UHF cable ready

If your tv tuner on vhf only goes to channel 13 you will not recieve uhf channels if you are hooked to cable tv. You can do a search for mid band to uhf converters (converts uhf to vhf).We used to use them in the early 80's. Even if you can find one it will only go to channel 22.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I bought the same tv about a year ago. I noticed that the power adapter gets very hot when plugged into the electrical outlet so I unplug it after watching tv. Better to be safe than sorry.

Digital tuner adapter

All of us that own this pint-size tv will experience the same problem come Feb. 2009. The only solution is to purchase a digital tuner adapter and "adapt".
