Check the wires between the cablebox and the tv, one is probably loose or something. If you have component, check the green one. HDMI, be careful not to wiggle too much an break the cable or jack. If you don't have a cablebox, it could be any cable wire, on the tv, in the wall, even outside. Try different outlets to isolate the problem. Let me know if I can assist more.

    If its not external to the tv, then its an internal signal loss, ie needs a new board probably. You have no signal on all inputs?

How do I hook up my digital cable to my ilo flat screen TV with out a box


It won't work because the tuner from your ilo TV will not be able to decode the digital signal from the cable company even if your TV has a digital tuner. The digital tuner on your TV will only decode over the air signals.
You will still need the digital cable box from the cable company.

How do i get a signal using co-axial connections


An antenna on one end of the coaxial cable will get signals. The other end can connect to your TV. Then in the menu on the TV you have to select 'antenna' instead of cable. Many seem to have some kind of 'auto scan' mode that will look for channels available. (Unless you are talking about getting signals from the cable company. Then select 'cable' and still auto scan to find available channels.)

How do i get stronger signal


If you are referring to a cable signal on your tv set, then there are several ways, but first off, how do you know the signal is weak? Analog cable signals typically run at 30 to 40 percent while HD signals on the same line can be as high as 90%.
If your cable connections are firm and have no fray with good cable runs, and is not longer than needed, I would suggest calling the cable company tech support line for troubleshooting. It could be their error in an outside line.

How can I get high definition on the tv? I have it set to receive the signal from my cable tv company but it transmits only a regular signal.


Check these things to solve this problem:

Do you have an High Definition TV? If you bough it recently, then you probably do. If you are unsure, look on the back of the TV for the model numbe and search on Google to read find information about he model of TV you have. If you don't have an HD TV, you will need to upgrade if you want High Definition.

Is the TV connected to the cable box with an HDMI or Composite cable?
You can order a cheap HDMI cable at Monoprice.com.
If you are using old style AV cables (red, yellow, white) then you will not get an HD signal from the cable box.

Check the TV settings to make sure it is set to display in HD. Look in the manual for help here. It is probably in the Input Settings.

You will need to call your cable company and make sure you are getting HD service. If you are not the you will only get Standard Definition. You may have to pay more or upgrade your cable box.

  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

How can i watch cable tv.


I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.
