Yes, the premium channels are in a band width only reachable with a cable box. The standard or what would be over the airwave channels are available without a "box" in the basic cable tier.

Using hdtv antenna (not cable) but get no signal when scanning channels on my Insignia 19 inch tv


You may be using the wrong type of antenna. Apparently there is a lot of mystery and fiction in the advertisement of these antennas. Read this article and see if it doesn't clear up some issues for you.

I live in Victoria Tx. I can not afford cable or dish. I am able to recieve all 4 of the the number 25 channels. Why am I not able to recieve any of the three number 19 channes. All 19 and 25...


Channel 19 actually broadcasts on VHF channel 11 (approximately 201MHZ) and channel 25 actually broadcasts on UHF channel 15 (approximately 479MHZ). I know that sounds a bit weird but it has been done so that stations don't have to change there "call" channel number when we switched to Digital TV. Your digital converter box keeps track of this. This is important to understand because you need and antenna that is good at picking up both UHF and VHF signals. If you're not getting channel 19 it may be due to a poor VHF portion of your antenna. If your using a basic old set of rabbit ears for your antenna that has a loop in the middle then I might have a trick for you. Most rabbit ears have 2 telescopic antenna elements. Extend or collapse until each length is 14.7 inches long. (Which is a quarter wavelength at 201MHZ). You are effectively tuning (Optimizing) your antenna specifically for that channel 19. You may need to rotate your antenna a bit to find the best signal.

There are other factors which can hinder you receiving channel 19 but this is a good starting point. Let me know what type of antenna you have. Hope this helps.

Does my Insignia come digital cable ready or do I need a convertor box?


Cablevision is forcing people to having to buy Digital Cable Boxes with decoders in them.. On top of what you are already paying you have to pay lets say 2- 6$ per tv for a box per month.  Cablevision is doing this and charging more.  It's really to bad.

No Non-Hd sound


In a nutshell, there is no solution to this problem. The new Insignia TVs have a compatibilty issue with certain HDMI connections. The best thing is to return the TV and purchase another brand. I bought the LG w/built-in DVD and everything works great.

Hooking actual live coaxial from Cable Co. to Insignia Converter Box ...


Based on the specs that I have read I am going to say you cannot hook up cable to the converter. Best thing to do would be to call cable company that provides service there and see if it was turned off on the billing side they probably just didn't come out and disconnect from the pole. That might give you service but missing some features such as tv guide channel. Now some tv's have tv guide built into them and maybe in the move that feature on the tv was turned off it they were using it that way before. Here is what the specs say about that converter:

Use this digital-to-analog converter to convert digital TV broadcast signals to analog signals on analog TVs with antenna-based reception.
