Cant figure out how to set TV to cable setting

I have went through the menu trying to find out where I can select cable instead of whatever it is on because it will not pick up all of my channels when I do a scan. And the ones it does pick up it makes them what ever channel it wants. My tv is a ALT2250M.???

The company's page for this set is here. There's a link toward the bottom to download the user's manual.

If I read the manual correctly, you're out of luck without an external tuner such as a cable box. This set was made for the European market and its tuning system isn't fully compatible with that used in the US. There's a "channel swap" function which lets you reassign the channels it finds to whatever channel number you want, and it's described in the manual. I assume that's to allow for the different frequency/channel number assignments in use in all the areas it tries to cover. The set's tuner just may not be able to pick up all the channels on your cable system. As long as it gets US channel 3 or 4 correctly, you can use the set with a cable box or video recorder that properly tunes the cable channels.

I am trying to hook up my cable box so i can watch tv.


At the cable box input, connect the cable (probably labeled "Cable In" or "Signal In").

Depending on the cable box model and available inputs on your TV, connect one of the following (listed in descending order of video quality). Colored phono plugs must match the colors of the plugs on each end.:

  • HDMI (a single rectangular connector at each end - sometimes you need to connect the Audio separately with a two - line cable with red and white phono plugs).
  • YPbBr, AKA Component (Cable with Red, Blue and Green phono plugs, plus a separate Red and White cable set for Audio).
  • S-video (a single round connector and separate Red and White audio cables).
  • Composite (Yellow video cable plus Red and White audio cables, usually sold as a single set).
  • RF out on the cable box connects to ANT or Cable In on the TV with a coax cable.
The various options are always grouped in some manner on both the Cable box and the TV. On the TV, note which input set you use, for example, "Component 1". This is the input you will select to watch whatever channel you select on the cable box.

An unused output on the cable box can go to a video recorder. Some cable boxes may permit setting up two different channels for this purpose; others will only put out the signal from one channel at a time on all outputs.

You may, if you prefer, connect the audio cable from the cable box to a stereo receiver instead of the TV. Usually people connect the audio to the TV, then connect another audio cable from "Audio Out" or "Monitor Out" on the TV to the stereo receiver. That way the sound is from whatever video source is currently selected, and the TV remote control can be used to set the volume. TV sets with this option usually have a setting to turn off the internal speakers so you hear only the external stereo speakers.

Hooking up & seeing a dvd player?


does the dvd have a coax output for coax antenna input on the tv? you can use that untill you can get the video input selection straight with the tv and a remote that supports rca's extra functions such as menu , tv/av button
or
also if there is a( wake-up) on/off timer in the tv menu , then you can also set it to come on with the video input instead of a tv station,set it a few minutes after the time it is when you set it( then just turn off the tv set after the time is set and you have exited the menu, then it will come on with the video input instead of a tv station)
otherwise you will need that remote that supports the video input selection on your tv

Fax


I had same issue. We found a blog that worked for our machine. Go to Fax settings and navigate to RX Settings (receive mode settings). Select ECM and select "Off" vs "On" and then go back to RX settings menu and select another option called "RX Start Speed" at the bottom of the selection screen (I had to scroll down past the visible portion of the display). Select 7200 bps vs. the default setting of 33,600 bps. Then I had my wife send a fax from work and instead of picking up hand set, I pushed the "Hook" button on the front panel and then hit the "Black" button. It then recognized the transnission. It took about a minute then the fax came through for me on a couple different attempts.

I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.

Set up menu


Hi - if you have this hooked up to a TV cable HD box, you have to make sure you hit "TV" on the cable box remote in order to set up the TV menu. I had to figure this out also with my Insignia 32" LCD TV.
