Re: encrypted channel

We had the same problem with our ILO. Today we bought an HDMI cable and used it to bring the cable signal from cable dvr box to tv. We were able to get to menus and change the input and the tv works again. For how long...who knows!

I have cable. The autoprogram doesn't recognize any channels. It works fine when I hook up the dvr cable box, but not when I bypass the box. Trying to do away with the box.

Cable signals today are encrypted so that it is not possible to directly connect the cable to the set and get the cable channels. You must use the cable box. Some sets have what is known as a "cablecard" slot that can be used with a card from the cable company in lieu of a cable box. Only then can you use the TV tuner for cable channels.

Have older tv, cable ready only. Hooked dvr to it...cable in dvr then to tv, but cant get setup to come in on any station. Tried both E1 & E2, get nothing

You will need to manually tune a new program channel in to the frequency that the DVD outputs at. It will tell you the frequency it is in the DVD manual. It will be Analogue TV rather than Digital TV option on TV so you need to tune in an analogue channel manually. Also make sure you use an antenna cable at 75 ohms impedance rather than a video cable. They look exactly the same but electronically they are quite different and a video cable will not work from RF out DVD player to RF Antenna In on TV.

I have a JVC tv model AV 27495. I hooked it to the cable with the cable cord. I can only get cable 2 channel. I can't access any channels. What do I need to hook into the cable? Do I need a box since...

Yes, with the Direct TV box it did all the tuning and your TV had only to be on one channel, normally ch 3 or ch 4. Now that it is not there any more your TV tuner must do the work. You now will have to tell the TV to search for channels. Use your remote and TV menu to do this. You will be able when the search is complete to see some of the cable channels but other premium cable channels you won't be able to see without a cable box.

How can i watch cable tv.

I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.

This is an encrypted channel

Hello hbennett,
When looking at cable TV some of the channels are encoded (arranged digitally) to disallow access to the content on that channel.  This is true in the case of encrypted channels, the cable company has taken that channel and through an encrypting algorithm made that channels content inaccessible to you. The only legal way to see that channel is to pay the cable company or content provider for that service (channel). I hope this helps.
Thank you, Shuttle83
