Can i access my digital channels on cabel without a box? I dont want to have to type in sub numbers, can my remote be programed for that?

Local digital channels should be available from the cable TV line from the wall. Your TV has to have a digital tuner. You can do a channel set-up scan with the TV. Then do channel up and down or channel # access to get to desired channel.

Good day,
I might be missing something here, but if YourTV has the basic controls on the TV itself, such as on/off volume, and channel select, then just turn on tv, and set it to channel 3.
Use your converter box remote to scan for channels, and other options it has as needed.

Do I need a cable box to make it work on my tv?

Only if you have satellite otherwise if you have cable service you should be able to get basic channels by plugging cable direct into tv if that outlet is active.

Good Luck..

Programming my rca universal remote for basic cable the stations wont turn

I can only suggest that you Double check you have the connections correctly set ie. coax ariel to ,(dvd /digi box reciever ect...)
Also check again (& i know this is state the obvious)
your tv manual. IF you havent a manual do a google search for your tv (make & model) & search for a manual.

Ive have had a simmular experience when programming channels to a Vid-Recorder & when i finished the channels dissapeared.

I realised I didnt have the video set to the correct channel with the tv usually channel 9 or the highest channel on the tv.
So i waisted a good half hour for nothing.
