It's not automatic. Page 24 - You have to register it with them...

The clear protective film on the DCP501 display must be removed and transferred to the inside back cover of your
DCP501 Home Theater System User Guide. The Unit Address and Serial Number found on the protective film is
required for activation of your DCP501 cable TV receiver by your cable TV service provider.

Can not get any HD channels since we tuned in 76FLIX used to until did this.

Your carrier may have changed that channel to an encrypted/paid channel you don't currently subscribe to.

Had power outage and now VCR/DVD does not turn back on. lights all work but it doesn't seem to pick up the channel?

Dis-connect the plug from the wall receptical and other leads attached to to the unit. Next press and hold power for too minutes in an attempt to reset the microprocessor, now hook everything back up and power on, if this fails it probably would be cheaper to replace the combo than have it repaired.

No sound when watching Television with AT&T U-Verse

Hello! Thanks for using FixYa today-- I think I can help you out.

Your first step is always to do a soft reset of your cable box. Do this by using your remote to turn it off, and then manually unplug it from the wall. Leave it off for about five minutes or so and then turn it on again. If that soft reset doesn't work, there is one more thing you can try before calling an AT&T tech.

Another option is to go to your "Settings" page and fiddle around with the audio settings-- sometimes it will randomly get altered (either due to user error or just a bug) and not be geared towards the parameters you had before.

If this doesn't work, call AT&T and see if they can fix the issue for you. Since your DVD is working then this is most definitely an issue on their end of the aisle.

Best of luck!

Try contacting the consumer affairs office or Office of fair trading for assistance.

If you're a post paid subscriber you have to report it to your network provider. There must be a problem with your connection. If you're a prepaid subscriber just buy another sim, youhave an expired sim.

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal

This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Do not receive any channels

If you got a credit card looking thing, put it in. Reset the unit. If that doesn't work, call AT&T. Since you are a paid subscriber, they will be glad to walk you through the setup.
