You need to get into the setup menu for the TV and find a section that allows you to select between settings something like "Broadcast", "TV", "Cable", etc. Be sure that "Cable" is selected.

Some remotes have button(s) for "Cable" and "TV". Unfortunately, it's common to accidentally switch modes when this is the case. Take a quick look and if you have a "Cable" button hit it once and see if that helps.

Sorry I can't be more specific not knowing what type of TV you are using specifically. The exact solution will vary a lot from one make and model to another.

I get channel until #13 how does i get the other chnnel


TV's of this era have two modes that the tuner can work in. One is the AIR mode and the other is CABLE. In the air mode the tuner picks up only "off air" frequencies,... and up to channel 13 they happen to be the same as cable channels 2 thru 13. If you are using cable you will need to go into your on screen menu and find where to change the tuner from "air" to "cable" to get channels above 13. Older sets had a switch on the front and sometimes the back to select the tuner mode.

TRutech 15" LCD does not pick up all channels


Check your TV settings and make sure your tuning is set for cable (may say "cable" or "CATV"). Right now you'll probably find it set for "air". If the TV is set to tune off-the-air, cable channels 2 through 13 work normally, but above that they aren't detected. Once you set the tuning mode to cable, rescan channels and you should have them all.

My LXI TV won't allow me to get any channels above 13 after doing the auto scan for channels. I am using DirectTV.


The only way to fix the problem is to hook your TV to a standard cable hookup and go through the "auto memo" scan process. The auto scan progarm then automatically sets itself to the CATV mode, rather than the standard mode, so channels above 13 can be received after disconnecting and reconnecting to a DirectTV, satellite antenna.

Cannot watch channels past 13


Your tuner settings must be set on broadcast instead of cable. Below channel 13, they use the same frequencies so it doesn't matter. Find the tuner settings page in the menus and change the cable/air setting.

I have the 13 inch and...


If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.

Channel selection


What you need to do is take the remote, go into the menu, find channel scan and do a channel scan to find all the available stations available on this system. Make sure the TV set is in the cable mode and not antenna mode or you wont get any stations above channel 13.
