Re: How do you change the tv from CATV to just TV in the...
The tv doesn't need to know that the signal is coming from a dish, so the use of catv while using direct tv should be okay. it seems that the problem may be with where you are making the connection from the direct tv box. plug it in where you would a cable box cable.

Are you using a remote, or try to turn on manually. If your remote does not work, it needs to be programed to your t.v. And all remotes and t.v.s have different codes. Sometimes your cable provider will help you program your remote, or reset your cable box. My remote for my cable was not programmed, so I had to read the instructions myself to get the remote to work with the cable box channels.
The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.
The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.
There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.
Without the Panasonic remote you can not get to those features to program these sets. I have included a link to purchase a replacement remote control. They aren't expensive and much easier to use than a universal remote. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...
it sounds like the tv is already in cable mode, and that it is a older tv. some older tv's will only tune in so many channels. yours going up only to channel 69. if you have the remote for this tv, try punching in channel 73. if it doesn't tune in, then the tv will not recieve channel 73.
Go to http://www.jvcremotes.com/ or any similar site and order the original remote. That way you are sure to get a remote capable of doing whatever you need. The alternative is to keep buying universals until you get lucky and find one that works all functions on that set.
When the channels show up in red thats an indication that they are not programmed into the TV set. Your going to need the original remote, go into the menu and then press auto scan with an attenna attached to the set. If it wont scan then you have a bad microprocessor
