We have this tv, it works ok when connected to cable (Verizon Fios) directly from the wall, or with a dvd or xbox game, also we tried to connect it to two different set top boxes that work with other sets, one was a digital converter given by Verizon Fios and the other is the Set top box Motorola 2500, picture is then scrambled. It's making me crazy. I called RCA and they asked me to contact a local RCA repair place that has gone out of business. I also have spoken to Verizon Fios and the set top box is working, changing channels, volume control works, but there isn't much sound because it is mostly noise from the static of the scrambled picture. It appears it isn't compatible with cable but I'm sure the people that had it just before us had it connected to Cox cable. I just don't know if they had it connected to a cable box.
Can you help please?

Your TV has "Setup" function button on its front panel. By this button, you can enter its input selection window. Before testing this, check all the interconnections once more. Download its user manual. If you feel any difficulty in downloading it, send your email address to me and get a copy of it back by return mail. It has all wiring illustrations. If wiring is correct, it should accept the DVR signal.
You need to set XBox resolution to 480i. That is the only resolution it supports, if it can supp rt that. The Component connection is intended for a DVD player and not necessarily game consoles as it only support 500 lines per second.

my fiance fixed it. he has this really expensive remote that he programmed via a USB port and some fancy fingerwork that I can't even begin to explain :D and I was able to change the channel back to 00
sounds like you are using componant cables.[ red,blue,green on the right side in back of the cable box for the picture, & red & white cables for the sound.] make sure the red & white cables are connected to the middle white & red outputs of the cable box to the tv's red & white inputs, not outputs. hope this helps.
I want to thank whomever suggested the following...it works. I had been trying for days. Here is the solution:
Turn off the cable box and hit the menu button on the universal remote. The screen with the closed caption selection appears. Scroll down to the line regarding subtitles and turn it off.
