Your digital box should have non coaxial cables coming out of it going to the TV. This requires you to change the input source on the Television to something else other than "Air". It would most likely be something like Input 1, or Video 1, or HDMI 1, or Component 1. If you are indeed using the Coaxial output from the digital box to the coaxial input into your Television then you will need to do a channel scan on the TV to search which channels can be tuned to.

Iv tuned in a new dgital tv, but channel 1 and 2 dont tune it, programs start a 3, if u go backwards, its channel 805 i think press the remote button to analauge and u get channel 1 and 2 but not good...


If you've got a digital box from your cable provider, your tv most likely needs to be on channel 3. At that point you would use the remote that came with the digital box to change the channel. (in other words, your tv would always stay on channel 3)

I have a Panasonic PV-V4525S VCR and I'm trying to program it to work with the Comcast cable. Right now it will only record the same channel that the TV is on and I have to tell the VCR to record channel...


If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.

How to setup Toshiba CT824 tv with digibox (I have no user manual)


Hello,

You can connect the digibox (digital converter box) or DTA to the TV using coax jumpers and tuning the TV set to channel 3 or 4 in some cases.

Connect the input (wire from the wall or floor) to the input on the digital box.

Connect the output of the digital box to the input of the TV set.

Turn on TV and digital box, tune TV to channel 3 using the TV remote or the buttons on the TV itself.

Use the digital box remote to change channels. You may need a code to program the remote to work the TV set.

I hope this helped.
Cheers!

Local Comcast provider is switching to more digital programming


you will need the adapter and the good news is, the box is free, the downside to this is the panasonic recorder is going to need to only record on channel 3 or 4(there is a switch on the back of the comcast box) and the comcast box will need to be on the channel the program is on. I.E. Panasonic recording channel 3 or 4 from 10-11 am comcast box on channel 55 during that time.

Cannot find channel 3 or 4 on old Panasonic TV CT 20S2S


Channel 3 or 4 is what you select on your actual television. using the TV remote press 03 or 04 ( whatever the converter box output is switched to on the back.

if you cannot get the tv to select 3 or 4 ( not programmed try searching for channels on the convertor box and after it finishes auto program the TV set.

For a more detailed specific answer please list the make and model of both the TV and the digital converter box

VCR will not record with new digital cable box


The short and simple solution is to tune the VCR to the channel that the cable box is set to (4), and then tune teh TV to the VCR's output channel (3). If you do this you should be able to see the Cable channel through the VCR tuner and then record. Any other solution would require figuring out how to set both the VCR and the cable box to the same channel, but it sounds as if you have ruled out any possibility of being able to do that.

VCR tuner cannot tune in my cable channels


It is working as designed. The purpose of your cable box is to take in a wire containing all of the possible channels you might watch, and then extract *one* channel, and force it to appear as channel 3. If you connect the cable directly to the VCR, then the VCR's "tuner" (ie, channel selector) has an opportunity to extract any channel it wants. But... as you point out, your VCR won't be able to "see" any of the digital channels. So... if your goal is to be able to watch any of the digital channels, the signal must pass through your cable box, which will put the selected channel on channel 3. There is no value in going from the VCR to the cable box, since the VCR's tuner will have already filtered out all but one channel. It would be helpful to make a list of what your useage goals really are, since there are so many different ways to hook these things up. Are you interested in: - watching digital channels? - recording digital channels? - watching one channel while recording another? - using higher quality video signals (composite, s-video, component, etc) rather than RF (ie, channel 3) And so on. Keep in mind that you have *three* tuners: Your cable box, your VCR, and your TV. It sounds like only your cable box can tune in the digital channels. If your cable box puts out any non-RF signal, then the best choice would be to go: Coaxial Wire -> Cable Box -> Video Connection -> VCR -> Video Connection -> TV, with the VCR and the TV both set to "video". Then you would only use the cable box as a tuner, the VCR would only see the tuned channel (via video in), and the TV would see the same channel (or whatever tape you are playing) on its video input.
