To get cable you have to subscribe and pay for the service. And often unless you rent and pay for the extra cable box you will only get the most basic of stations.

Down with cable!!!!!!!!
They charge a fortune and nickel and dime you to *****.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

Cant seem to be able to get my local channels. i have a 52


I would suspect all the stations have gone away from over the air broadcast or gone digital for antenna reception---there are boxes available which will convert so the antenna can still be used.

I have removed all cable boxes from my home. I cannot get the tv remote to change channels. I was told by the cable tech that I needed to do a channel search. How do I do that?


Which specific model do you have? The menus may depend on your model. Are you using the original TV remote or a different remote? If you do not have the TV remote, try the buttons on the TV. Use the channel up/down buttons to navigate through the menu items and the volume up button to enter a sub-menu.

Try Menu and locate the Channel sub-menu. Then make sure that the antenna Air/Cable item is set correctly. Then the Channel Search option is on the next line. This is the method for the LCD2050. For the TTM2901L, you need the same Channel sub-menu but the channel search is called "Auto Program".

A number of other manuals for Polaroid TVs are available here: http://www.polaroid-tv.com/polaroid-lcd-tv/manual/ .

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your model number, I'll be glad to provide additional help. (Note: without the model, I can't be sure which tuners (NTSC - analog OTA or cable, ATSC - digital OTA, or QAM - digital cable) are in your TV. This may change whether you can receive any stations without the cable boxes.)

I don't now how i recive tv chanels in hd


Your source has to be in HD like a local broadcast TV station currently broadcasting in HD which you get with a VHF/UHF antenna connected to the HDTV. Most primetime TV shows are in HD so using the antenna on the HDTV is all you need. Press MENU on your TV remote and make sure you have ANTENNA set instead of cable to get local TV stations.

You also could use your local cable TV provider. You would need digital cable service and a HD cable box with HDMI or component video cable hookup to the HDTV. HD channels are typically above 100. Call your cable TV provider for more details.

Read your user manual for the LG TV. Ask for help from family, friends, neighbors, local electronics shops.

I JUST GOT A D52W20 HD TV.I SCREWED THE CABLE CONNECTION TO THE ANTENA INPUT. THE ONLY STATIONS I GET ARE LOCAL CHANNELS BUT NO CABLE CHANNELS. WHAT DO I HAVE TO SET ON THE TV OR WHAT DO I HAVE TO PRESS ON...


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.

I purchased an Insigna HDTV (or so I thought) at Best Buy a year ago, anticipating the February 09 conversion. I also bought a HD specific antenna, since I don't subscribe to either cable or the...


I was not aware that there are HD specific antennas. But, that aside, I don't know enough to answer without the model number of your set and information about the antenna, such as how you have it connected, is it amplified?
Best Buy is usually pretty good about helping with solutions. Have you called or visited a store? Be sure to ask for the Geek Squad person/s that are specifically assigned to TV's. Also most of their Dept heads are pretty knowledgeable concerning conversion and the associated problems. My apologies for not having a better answer.

TV GUIDE PROGRAM


Is your TV connected via a cable box or directly to cable without a box? The guide information normally comes from the local PBS station so it is possible they don't run that service anymore.
