We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

Can you tell me, is the set top box connected directly to the tv? (i.e. not to a surround sound receiver or anything)

Yes you do need a digital converter box to get the digital signals converted for the analog television. The television is not set up for digital signal reception. For more information on this problem and technical help you can got to the Insignia website.http://www.insignia-products.com go to the customer support section and tell them the model number of you television and about the question of needing a digital converter box.You can also call them at their customer support telephone number 1-877-467-4289 and give them the same information. They will be able to explain the need for the converter box. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

This is very common to a number of Samsung models built at the same time as yours and using the same in-built Freeview receiver.
There is no fix, the built in receiver is simply incompatible with the most recent updates to Freeview (as happened to many external boxes) and cannot be modified, the only puzzle is the length of time that your receiver kept going for. If your tv has a warranty still then you may wish to see if the fault is covered.
Without a warranty, all you can do is continue to use an external Freeview receiver. They're usually better quality anyway, and are easy to replace when they go wrong or become out of date.

SOURCE: I just bought a teac
I find that with my HDB849 I have to be very carefull with the positioning of the aerial/rabbit ears to get all the channels to (ABC, 7, 9, 10, SBS and their sub cahnnels) to recieve them at all. Also once you get all the channels it is prone to digitization or pixilation at times due to bad weather/very overcast days.
Try the Teac.com.au for a firmware upgrade as this also solved not being able to view avis & images, listen to mp3's etc.
Overall the majority of reviews say the HDB849 is to be avoided.
Once set up correctly through trial and error and an absolute shitload of patience and re-tuning it seems to operate fine. Just pray you do not get a power outage or you have to start all over again.
Last point, try the teac 1300 number in Australia (or relevent country) and harras them for info whilst trying to stay calm and nice with the unlucky "tech support" person
