SOURCE: TV not finding Digital Channels from Cable Box

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.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels


It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

Digital channels are not working


If your TV is connected to a "cable" box, e.g. you're using cable TV ... then it is the cable TV box that determines what you can get (based on your cable subscription). Yes, I know that some cable TV and satellite TV service providers will only deliver HD digital channels when you pay an additional (monthly) fee for HD digital channels.
If you plug the cable directly into your TV (i.e. not use the cable box), you may be able to do a channel scan on your TV, to pick up the digital channels ... but you will loose the convenience of using the features that your cable box provides .

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

When you are using a FullHD upscaling model. I still have to a HD setbox


the set top box is required by your cable company.

if you plug cable directly into the TV and run an auto program from the TV menu it will find most channels. BUT it will not locate them correctly.

for instance I have comcast. Channel 58 is FX but WITHOUT a cable box it shows up as the following on my HDtv's

sharp 52" shows up as channel 83.10
RCA 27" shows up as 86.6
RCA 32" shows up as 89.3


its a pain in the ****. We rent 2hd boxes from comcast at 7.99 a month and I refuse to pay them any more per month.

Contrary to what most cable providers say you WILL pick up most channels and in fact you will pick up some HD channels without the box but you have to look for them and they won't be on the same channel on every TV.

Lastly cable companies also remodulaet their signals every once and a while so there will come a time when you will have to do the whole setup, autoprogram (ch scan) again and yes the channels will once again move to another channel.

cable sucks Comcast REALLY sucks

I have a RCA HDTV model# R52WH74. The cable company said all I needed was a digital box from them and a connector cable which I have. However the connector cable that fits into the digital box does not...


The cable company is always encouraging customers to rent cable boxes. It is hard to tell if a HDTV has a Quadrature Amplitude Modulation feature unless you ask at the time of purchase. Now the only thing to find out is to have it scan. Your TV has 2 RF inputs. You can choose one to hook up directly from cable source. Make sure to set up the right one for the input that you connect then let it scan. You will see something like channel 7, channel 7.1.... After that you have to make notes of what number is for which channel since it doesn't list out as what you have with a cable box. That is the inconvenience to watch without a cable box, but if you know what channel already then you can go straight to it without searching from remote.
I find out that cable box renting is a rip off. Another option is buy a new TiVo HD 20GB is selling now for 249.99 at Best to replace cable box legally and have all features just like cable box plus many more. However you have to pay TIVO service in order to record program. It still about the cost, but at least you know there is an option. Hope this can help.

TV not finding Digital Channels from Cable Box


I don't know where you're located but you may want to double check with Time Warner on the availibilty of an HD box. I have TWC with an HD tier package and have an HDMI out on the box that runs directly into HDMI on this TV. Hope that helps!
