How do i get the channels to scan and pick them up on regular cable line


Hello, without a model number I can only give you a generic outline on how to do this. Go to the "setup" menu, select "channel setup", select "cable mode", then have it "auto program". When it's finished, you should have what cable channels your cable system will allow without a cable box.....thanks

Up channel and down channel doesn't work on TV or on remote.


Hello; I am John at J. D. Electronics, Poland Maine. This problem is very likely caused by channel programming has not been done yet. You must run cable TV directly into set and let the set do the auto programming. If you are using a " Cable Box " You can not auto program and must use the cable box remote.

I am using cable, no box, I want to program in the channels. The channels 1 thru 22 are already programmed but I want to add 23 thru 79 channels I can't figure it out.


The TV might have an auto programing function, which should tune in all available channels that are being delivered thru the cable/from the cable company.

Skips past all channels after 13. CableVision


I don't know the exact step to set it because I don't know you model TV. When you go to menu set channels it should give you the option to choose cable or air. If you pick cable all your channels will be in VHF which is what you want. If you pick air the first 13 channels will be VHF and the rest will be UHF which cable don't work on. After you pick cable then auto program and you should get all your channels.If this helps you and I hope it does give me a vote please.

Hi just got a LG dvd/vcr Model RC897T. I have it hocked up right, but i can't get it to switch over so that it would be seen on the TV. can you help


If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder.
If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder.
To view or record a CATV channel:
  1. Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
  2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
  3. Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.

Timed recording with cable (new)


If you're referring to programming your VCR for recording, that works just like it did before the cable box was installed, but with two major differences.

The first difference is that the VCR must always be programmed to record on the converter box output channel. Usually this is channel 3, but may also be channel 4. The cable box selects the channel from the cable system, but it's always outputting to your TV on the same channel. That channel is what the VCR needs to record from.

The second change to programmed recording is that you can't program your VCR to record programs on different channels. The reason is because, as mentioned above, the VCR is actually recording from the cable box which is always on the same output channel. Unless you are home to change the channel on the box, you're stuck. For example, if you want to record a show at 10PM on channel 8 and another at 11 on channel 26, those are the cable channel numbers. The box output is channel 3 (or 4) in both cases. The VCR can't switch the box for you. It's only going to record the program on the channel you selected before you left home. You also need to leave the cable box turned on, but the TV can be off. This is probably the thing most people find confusing about dealing with a cable box.

Now having said all that, some brands of cable box do include a timer feature of their own that allows you to program the box to switch channels. This feature is used in conjunction with timer recording on the VCR. You still always program the VCR to record on channel 3 (4), but now the box can be programmed as well to switch to the channel on the system you want to record. This allows you to get around the limitation described above. If your box offers this feature, it will be accessed through its setup menu using the remote control. Ask your cable company if this is available if it's not clear from the setup menus or instructions the installer left you with.

How to setup my VCR to record programs from my Panasonic 42 Inch HDTV Plasma TV?


TV doesnt matter, you need to list what kind of VCR your trying to program with.

if you are programming from cable, the cable box, box or not, should be ran thru VCR then VCR to TV.
to record. easiest.

if you are doing cable to tv to vcr. make sure that tv is in one of the AV spots, so when you select input on vcr itll show your tv again. program as accordingly.

Only getting some channels to come in...


Check your latest phone bill and see if you have a basic extended package. If you dont you may have been downgraded to only get basic cable which is 2-13.

The auto program adds every channel that the television can detect.

Program satelite or cable


you are not specific as to programming cable or satellite .if you have cable tv with a cable box there is no need to program tv channels.the tv should be left on channel 3.check the back of the cable box & tv it may also be connected thru rca/s-video or componant cables meaning the tv should be on a line in/source ,or video input. for a tv without a cable box
you can do the auto or manual programming. no need to be on channel 3. if you have satelllite tv you need the box to hook up to your tv.you cannot bypass this box unlike cable tv.also check the back of the box for the other possible connections
good luck
