To get local over the air channels, you will need to connect an antenna as your signal source instead of Cable on the back of the set. Then you will have to go into the TV menu for signal source and select the Antenna/air option. Then you will have to go to the auto program/scan menu and scan in the stations. This may take a few minutes.
Now you can watch local stations for free.
I believe the FCC "must carry" rule require cable to carry local stations also.

SOURCE: unable to receive local channels

According to the manual for the 42LC2D it should be able to receive local channels through a normal analogue antenna connected to the anntenna/cable coax input connector. You can get the manual here http://us.lge.com/download/product/file/1000001586/60PC1D-UE.pdf

SOURCE: How do we make my TV capable of receiving regular

You would have to hook up an external TV antenna on the UHF/VHF band and run a coaxial cable from the antenna to the TV and plug in the "Belling-Lee" connector into the "Antenna" socket at rear of unit.. This should enable reception via "Normal TV"

No HD on tv


no it does not, you have regular channels via a box and what is the connection on the set for the HD channels? If from same box do not overlook that the set and box were likely unplugged.

reboot the set and the box both by unplugging for a while and if still no HD reprogram the TV channels which in some modes takes a bit of time--no relation between power board and HD reception.

I have a mitsubishi tv model cs27200 and I dont have a remote. I got a universal remote but it wont bring up the menu. I need to program the channels for cable. I only get local channels without bringing...


You would need to look up how to program that remote to your specific tv. I would look up the owners manual if you dont have it for the remote...and follow the instructions for it. However, you will have to directly use the tv to program it to the cable. The universal remote will only change the channels and volume for you. Use your menu button to bring it up, make sure its set to cable and not antenna, and use your channel + and - to navigate through the menu and vol + to select your option

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.

Cable channels wont program above 27 w my basic cable


Hi classmom2,
I will be happy to help.
You have probably tried this but I will go over it anyway. If it dosn't work we will try something else.
From the video menu on the tv, select the tuning band of CABLE not AIR. Then do a Auto-Channel Search.
From what I gather you have basic cable without a cable box correct?
Let me know what you find and we will go from there.

SYLVANIA LC200SL8 ? 20" LCD-TV Settup up channel setup


This is the chanel set up options I see on the online manual:
- CHANNEL SETUP -
ADD/DELETE(DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(TV/DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
! CATV takes approx. 50min.
To set up for over the air broadcast that local channels now have in HDTV, you will select AUTO PRESET CH(DTV). You will have to disconnect cable for this option; however, the cable company will send local channels over the cable.
Bottom line, if you have cable, use it, it will most likely still deliver the best signal.
So coonect cable and use this option:
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
Oh, and the reason it takes so long is because there are more channels to scan with cable then with the local over the air channels.
