Trying to switch my symphonic tv back to cable mode
The digital cable box had been turned off so regular cable was running straight from the wall to the tv, but when i hooked the box back up, i couldn't figure out how to switch the tv back to cable. under Channel setup my options were add/remove channel with (tv) next to it and auto preset but i couldn't figure out how to change the (tv) to cable.

You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box. Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.
The input from the Sega wont be on any channel number - you need to select the correct input for the Sega using the "INPUT SELECT" button on the Symphonic remote control supplied with the TV. Switch on the TV the Sega, then press this button repeatedly until you can see the picture from the Sega.
- If you are using the sockets on the BACK of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 1"
- If you are using the sockets on the FRONT of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 2". You can also switch to the "VIDEO 2" input by pressing the "GAME" button on the Symphonic remote - if you still have it.
If you don't have the Symphonic remote, look for a button marked "INPUT" or "SOURCE" if you are using a universal remote.
If you don't have any remote for the TV, you will only be able to use the sockets on the front of the TV. You will then need to switch to "GAME MODE" by using the buttons on the front of the TV:
1. Switch ON the TV and the Sega; 2. Press the MENU button; 3. Press the VOLUME UP button to open the PICTURE MENU; 4. Highlight GAME MODE using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons; 5. Set GAME MODE to "ON" using the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons; 6. Press MENU again to close the menu
You should now be able to see the picture from the Sega. If not, check you have correctly connected the Sega to the TV. When you have finished using the Sega you will need to use the method above to switch game mode off again.
Hopefully, I've covered every possible angle. If you have a different Symphonic TV model from the one listed above (ST420FF), the method should be similar, but if you have any difficulty, please post back for further assistance.
Yes go to menu with the buttons on your TV and go to CATV sometime u can press your channel button until your channels run out and if u keep pressing the channel button it will go into game mode or in other words switch to the RCA jacks in front of your TV
A dvd player that doesn't record hooks straight to the television, not the cable box. Tv's typically have av jacks. If yours doesn't, you will need to buy an rf modulator. If your tv has the jacks, U will need to use your tv remote and hit tv video or input or source on that tv remote to switch between input and tv modes.
The cable box has an AC outlet on the back of it and sometimes the installer plugs the TV power cord into it. This outlet has two modes--IE: on all the time or switched. If the outlet happens to be programmed to the switched mode, the cable box has to be on before you can turn on the TV. If the outlet is on all the time, then you can turn the TV on at will. So, you have to decide if the TV is plugged in there or it is plugged into the wall recptacle. If none of this explanation fits, then we need more information.
if you have cable or satillite than you do not need a converte box unless you have basic cable where the cable wire plugs right into the back of the tv if so a converter box will be needed to viev all chanels
Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)
Some Flat Panel TVs do not have atsc tuners on them. You should be able to connect your unit using Component cables through. This will provide a better picture, but you will have to control channel changing through a cable box. You will need a cable box to connect your TV to cable. If you dont have a tuner you cannot just connect from the cable cord coming from the wall. What is your model number?
s-video is a legacy connection. legacy means obsolete and this will impare your image.
what you should do is connect the cable box and blue ray directly to tv with hdmi cable, then run audio cables back to the reciever from these devices. the vcr and regular dvd player would be routed through the reciever the conventional way. you would have to change the inputs on the tv between the cable box, and blue ray if u have one, and a seperate single tv imput for components running thru the stereo. you would have to use the reciever to select between audio sources, and the video sources between the vcr and dvd only.
