Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Just got a d52w20 hooked it to the cable into the screw in antena port. i just get local channels. what do i have to set to get cable stations? does it have to be set on the tv or can i do it from the remote?
It sounds like you need to change a setting before running the auto or channel scan. On the same menu screen that has the option for running the channel scan, you should see a setting that has next to it the word "AIR" or "ANTENNA". If this isn't changed to "CABLE" or "CATV" then the TV will only scan for a limited number of channels because it assumes you have an antenna hooked up to it instead of a cable line. This is the same for all TVs. Anytime someone runs a channel scan on ANY TV and they only pick up a limited number of channels, they need to change the setting I've described. And remember, it will be on the same menu screen that you go to in order to run the channel scan.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
P.S. On some TVs, autoscan is called autoprogram.

Before you bought your new TV, was the cable connected to an older TV, and was it working?
When you say you screwed the cable connection to the antenna input, did the cable come directly from the wall, or did it go through a cable box first. If it came through the wall without a cable box, it's possible it's not an active cable account, and you're only getting over the air signals for your local channels (and nothing through the cable). Or, your cable signal might have been analog only, and with the transition this week to digital TV, maybe you're no longer getting the channels broadcast properly.
If you are a cable subscriber, then this problem should be reported to the cable company, and they can do further testing to see what's wrong with your signal.
