I had my Ac TV working off Comcast receiving all base channels, I dissconnected to take it with me on a short trip, and now I can't get connected back to cable. As I recall, I had it connected previously to "CATV." Now I cannot find that option.

Re: Disconnectd AcTV from Comcast; can't reconnect!
"AV- TV" where you plug your video cable in, there will often be a name like video-1 ,2or3. If you push the AV (audio video) button on your remote you will select channel video-1 if you press another one or two times toy will get channel video- 2and 3.

> I had comcast before but now i don't, don't use a converter box and somehow I was getting cinemax and other channels on the tv Comcast was providing Cinemax and many other channels as part of your paid services and you will not receive these unless you are a subscriber.There is a good selection of free broadcast channels unless you live outside city areas. If you do, you will then need an external antenna and probably an amplifier to get more distant signals.Auto programming will not find the channels you were receiving from Comcast so there will be only accidental channel duplication; for example, if your former channel 10 was NBC, it may be channel 7 when receiving signal from an antenna. There are essentially no more 'Analog' stations still broadcasting, they are now all 'Digital.' The abbreviations 'Std' refers to the aspect ratio (H/W) of the picture area and 'Hrc' and 'Irc' the available resolution or how many pixels and lines on the screen.
I've never, ever heard of this problem - having been a happy TiVo user for over 15 years. The very first thing I would do is call Comcast and tell them what is occurring. How long had everything worked OK before this happened? If things were OK for a long time before this, and if your TV carrier was, likewise, Comcast for a long time; and if you haven't gotten a new TV or cable box for a long time, then the problem must rest with Comcast. It must!
In our home, with the number of movies, shows/sporting events/etc. which we record, that would be totally unacceptable!
Try this: Unplug everything (with everything turned off). Make sure your TiVo remote is good (fully charged batteries and the code is right for your TV/cable box), Wait for 10 minutes and plug everything back in, starting with TiVo, then the TV, then any other accessories.
Plug back in and do a complete restart from scratch - like you did when you first set up TiVo.
Make SURE that your receiving channel (3 or 4) is the same on both. It could be that someone accidentally has changed it - are there kids in the house?
If none of this works, get Comcast in there. That's all I can tell you. . .
Comcast here. Most likely, the channels you need have been converted to a digital signal and now require a DTA (Digital Transport Adapter). Comcast is supplying our customer that lost programing as a result of the digitial transition up to 2 DTA's per home free of charge. Email our team at the address below. We'll get you cared for.
If you only have the comcast receiver and a TV, take the input (wire from outside the house or outlet on wall) and screw that onto the input of the comcast receiver. Take another wire (or RCA, component connecters or whatever means the box and TV provides) and go from the output of comcast receiver to the input of the TV. Set the TV input mode (on the TV itself or by the remote) to whatever mode you hooked up the cables to (video 1, aux, video 2, etc) and you should see a picture. From there use the comcast remote to change channel. If you use the round cable (rg56 or rg59) you will not need any other connections between the TV and the box. The video and audio are broadcast on the same line. If you use RCA (yellow red white) connectors, yellow is video, white and red are audio) you will need all three wires from comcast receiver to TV. I hope this helps and good luck!
1-First to make sure that the cable cord has signal first by checking with a working TV in your house.
2-Need to set up your TV to receive CABLe or Antena in your TV menu set-up. However, you can see only analog channels . You won't be able to see digital channels unless you rent cable boxfrom Comcast. Good luck
you will need the adapter and the good news is, the box is free, the downside to this is the panasonic recorder is going to need to only record on channel 3 or 4(there is a switch on the back of the comcast box) and the comcast box will need to be on the channel the program is on. I.E. Panasonic recording channel 3 or 4 from 10-11 am comcast box on channel 55 during that time.
bring up the menu screen the tv and auto program the channels this lock out all un wanted and only allow the rf tuner input channel from the box if your using rf cable hook up,if not un plug the unit for 1 min. and try it again.
