Does emerson model #20s5b have a switch to convert from cable to satilite?

It's in the channel programming menu. It should say, "Cable/Ant" or "Cable/Air" If you want a roof antenna with local channels, change it to "Air/Ant" Then click auto program with the antenna hooked to it to scan for free local channels.

How do u get box 2 program from 1 2 100 i can only get 12 channels


With a DTV Pal, once you scan for your local channels and add them to the receiver, those are the only channels you have available to view. The local channels available are dependent upon your distance from the broadcast towers. I hope this helps.

Have Direct TV using a Sony Digital Satellite receiver model #SAT B2-2 /Sony Satellite dish purchased in 7/97. I get local channels thru Direct TV. Recently, local channels will show on the Direct TV guide...

Your dish is out of alignment. The local channel satellite doesn't have as strong of a signal, so a slight misalignment will cause problems.

It could also be an F-connector needs to be replaced at the dish or multiswitch (if you have one). Sometimes moisture builds up inside the connector and corrodes the copper stinger inside.

If you go into your satellite signal strength menu and find the local channel satellite, you're sure to see either a weak signal or an intermittent one.

One more thing, if a tree has grown in the line of sight between the dish and the satellite, this will cause signal problems too. In this case, you either have to trim the tree or move the dish.

Hope this helps!

The customer service reps at DirecTV usually idiots reading from a script with no real field experience.

Can't get the tv to move from the cable mode

Wondering if this is what your asking about, I cant find reference to Cable only mode...

Indicates that all channels are locked except the selected channel.
The following complaints may be generated due to locked channels:
- TV cannot be switched on from standby with the local keyboard buttons.
- “CH+” and “CH-“ buttons on local keyboard do not function.
To disable the LOCK feature:
Select ”FEATURE” menu (with the Remote Control).
Select “LOCK” (with the Remote Control).
Set to “OFF”

Cant get local channels

If you can manually tune to the channels with no problem, then I would go in and add then into memory manually. If not then exchange the set as it might have a bad tuner or an AGC (automatic gain control) issue.
