Only receive 2 channels.

I have cable tv but only receive two channels on my Mintek. Have done the channel search many times, finds 130+ channels but yet when its done, I still only get two channels. I have lost the manuels since last move. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Re: Only receive 2 channels.

Can you punch in the channel numbers directly to go to the channels, but just not tune to them with the Channel Up/Down buttons?
If so then try tapping the favorite button on the remote until the screen shows "favorite mode off". This mode likes to stay [or perhaps turn] on when you scan for channels, but scanning clears everything in the favorite list except for the channel you are on when you start the scan (so it seems), thus leaving only one or two channels showing up. (This happens whenever I re-scan for digitals.)
To pick out favorite channels, go into the channel menu in the tv menu and with "Favorite: Analog" or "Digital" highlighted near the top, hit OK on the remote to toggle favorite status.

There are three ways you can connect a DVD player to a TV. Component video gives the best picture quality, but requires 3 cables for the video signal alone. S-video needs only 1 cable but it isn’t as good as component video. Composite video is the easiest connection to make, but gives the lowest picture quality.

Can only receive cable channels 2 through 13;

Turn the unit off, push the setup button 3 times. Press the seek left/right to switch between cable / antenna tuner modes. When cable is selected, press the channel up/down to switch between cable modes. When the unit turns back on, it will rescan for channels.

Receiving tv programs

In the menu theres a channel set up mode. You want to switch from antenna to cable mode, then do an auto search. Then all your cable channels will come in. Your going to need the original remote to go into the correct menu. good Luck
