I do not have a remote for the TV but I know I get cable channels on it from using the manual buttons becuase I had them in my last apartment. However, I now have a splitter running my from cable TV box into this TV (wich is my children's TV) and the only channel I get is 45 and Line. I have tried accessing the following in the Menu: TV, Channel, ad VCR. None seem to have a button to push to allow cable channels to be seen. Please help as this TV is the only thing that help my children sleep through the night!

How to hook up a denon avr -1706 receiver To a lg smart tv


If you are tuning in TV stations with the TV set, you will need either an optical or a coaxial audio cable to go from the digital audio out of the TV to a digital audio in on the receiver. This setup should give you 5.1 Dolby digital sound. You can also use a pair of red and white rca cables, but you will only have 2 channel sound. You may need to set the TV to output the audio to external speakers. You will need to set the receiver to the input the TV audio is connected to.

If you want to watch Sat or Cable, you probably need a couple of HDMI cables. One HDMI cable will go from the output of the Sat/Cable box to the appropriate HDMI input on the receiver. The second HDMI cable will go from the Monitor Out on the receiver to an HDMI Input on the TV. You may need to set the receiver to output HDMI audio from the receiver, and not the TV. You will need to set the TV to the HDMI Input you connected to on the TV. You will also need to set the receiver to the input the Sat/Cable box is connected to.

Details of both of these setups should be covered in the receiver and the TV manuals. Refer to them for the detailed connections and settings you need to make.

Good Luck!

Not sure what channel to put TV on to receive DISH channels


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Internet Response Team here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. The channel that you would need to put your TV on would depend on the type of cable you have plugged into your TV and receiver. If the cable you have plugged into the receiver and TV is a coax cable (black cable with silver end) the channel would need to be on 3 or 4. If the cable is a RCA cable (black with red, white and yellow tips) the channel would need to be on an input such as Video 1, input 1, input 2, aux etc. The other cable that it could possible be hooked up with is a HDMI cable (black with a thin flat end) the TV would need to be on a HDMI input. You can find the inputs by pressing the input, TV/video, source or AUX button on the DISH remote or TV remote. I hope this information is useful and if you have any other questions please let me know.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

Can't get General Instruments cable box to search


if you have a cable box then you will not need to search for channels. Depending on the cables you are using to connect your TV and cable box, the input channel the TV needs to be on changes. Cycle through your available inputs by using the Input or Video Source button on your remote. Check each one for audio/video. Once you are on the right input, use your CABLE remote to change the channels. DO NOT USE THE TV REMOTE.

Just got the TV and trying to set it up using DISH network. Getting a "weak or no signal" message.


Hello! I hope that you have been able to get that picture on your tv. Here are some simple steps for you.

If you are at TV1, where the receiver box is located, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cable that is running between the receiver and the tv, the tv may need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2. If you are at the TV2 location, where there is no receiver, then the tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73.

If you are using an HDMI cable, your tv usually needs to be on am HDMI input. If you are using component cables, usually the tv needs to be on a component input. RCA cables need to be on a Video input. If you are using coax cable, no cable is needed.

I hope this helps.

I have a dvd player drc212 that i have no


Hi Tana,

If your TV is supplied with a video input, you will need a set of Composite Baseband video cables commonly known as RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White).

See the last paragraph if your TV is not supplied with a video input.

You will connect the Yellow (Video) from the DVD's video output, to the Yellow (Video) input on the TV set; example is VIDEO 1 or AV1.
You will connect the Red (Right Audio) from the DVD's Red Audio output, to the Red (Right Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.
You will connect the White (Left Audio) from the DVD's White Audio output, to the White (Left Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.

Turn on DVD, and TV set. Select the proper input on the TV set using the input button (video, source, AV select, etc.)

If your TV set is not supplied with a video input only a coax cable input, you will need an RF Modulator which can be purchased at any Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-mart, etc. You will also need a small coax jumper (3 to 6 foot should do it), and a set of RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White) as described above. The RF Modulator comes with instructions on how to connect it. It has a coax input, RCA input and a coax output that will connect to your TV set.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

Connect denon 1709 to my tv


I will assume that your TV is an HDTV capable unit. Since I also would assume that the Denon AV1709 is properly setup in your listening room/Home Theater. You will need to purchase one HDMI cable from the Denon to the TV input. This cable must be long enough to go from the Denon to the TV with length to spare. The more money spent on a better quality HDMI cable will pay dividends on how much better the screen will appear. On the back of the Denon is an HDMI output labeled "Monitor Out" that the new cable will go into, and the other end of the cable will go into the TV input labeled HDMI. On the remote I would search for a button labeled "Input" or "Source" and on the screen I would look for the input that would reflect the same input you put the HDMI cable into in the TV. If your TV doesn't have HDMI inputs see if it does have "Component input" on the back The information will be similar but will reflect the different Input and Outputs you may need to use. The cables will be more complicated but they are color coded just for you. Red goes to Red, Blue goes to Blue, Green Goes to Green. Enjoy Re-Post if you need further information.

Must hookup DVD-VR375to tv,cablevision box & MSNtv2.


Here's How:
  1. The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
  2. If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
  3. If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
  4.

Can't connect cable tv


Easiest way is to connect the cable wire (75 Ohm) to your tuner's input.

Best way in terms of performance (if you have HDTV and both your cable tuner and TV have HDMI cables) is to connect the cable box using a HDMI cable it had both audio and video.

Next best is component cable out (Red, Green & Blue wires) to the TV's component inputs.

Next best in terms of performance is to use the RCA cables from the box Video out and Audio out right and left to the Audio Videio inputs of your TV..

You may also use S-Video and Audio cables.

After connecting it up, you need to select the correct input on your TV or projection TV.

Hope this helps. :)
