Question about Philips 26PF5320 26 in. LCD Television
Cant seem to find the Cable channels during Channel Search. I'm currently connected directly from the Cable Company's coaxial cable directly into the TV. There are five TV's in the house. Could this be a weak signal or a damaged tuner? How can I check? If I plug a different TV into this same cable, it works fine.
you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.
