Question about Televison & Video
Question: Is it possible to program HD channels available through basic cable service? Or: is the auto channel preset function able to program channel numbers with 4 characters (example: 1001, or higher channel numbers) where the HD options reside? Model Information: Make: Pioneer Elite Model: PRO 530HD Cable Setup Information: Basic cable service = Time Warmer No cable box for this set up Basic cable wire attached directly to TV Procedure Attempted Already: In menu options: Tools, channel set up, auto channel preset = scans all channels signals The channel scan did not appear to auto-program the HD channels available through basic cable.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

cable or Ant.. ? after the scan if there is no channels found (0 digital, 0 analog) then try with cable or Ant to see if any of them work.. if they still don't pick up any channels and the whole yellow progress line goes across.. then it sounds like the tuner on the tv is bad.. and the tuner is part of the main-board so the whole main-board will have to be exchange or repair.. contact Amergence technology they are a 3rd party repair center that service Olevia TV's and they will be able to give you an idea on the repair cost..

Hello, the HDTV input is what you would use if you were not using a cable box.
You should connect your cable from the wall to coaxial input on the cable box, and connect an hdmi cable from the hdmi output on the cable box to the hdmi 1 input on your tv and then switch the tv to that input.

SOURCE: channel scan only finds 1
the LG will scan several tuning bands TV, DTV, CATV, CADTV
you must let it work through all of these in programming mode.
use the channel up and down button to see just what it has picked up.
the Manual Channel menu will allow you to add or delete what channels you want to surf.
if your programming in unsuccesful, unplug the TV (power) for five seconds then plug back in (reboot)
and attempt the complete setup all over again.
if it still fails, your tuner is bad...which means you need a new main board.
