Question about Akai LCT2785TA 27 in. LCD Television
I plugged in the tv and the cable connection, but I only get local (air) channels 1-13. The owners manual says that antenna 2 is for air or cable, but I only see one cable connection on the back of the TV and I have connected it to the cable connection in the wall. How do I connect it to "Ant. 2 cable" to get the cable channels?

You don't mention using your SOURCE button to select HDMI.You have to put your akai in the right source selection by using the source button on the remote or the source button on the right side of the TV. I hope this helps. SW

I called RCA's 800 number on the back of the owner manual--got a response that said to replace the unit since only the up-down channel changer buttons were not working. Using another remote (universal) now--cost only $5.

SOURCE: Can't get digital channels on 37
Are you certain you've connectet the antenna coaxial cable correctly?
There's 2 of them on this TV, one for digital and one for analog/cable connections, make sure you're connected to the correct input for digital TV.
If you're certain you've got it connected correctly then your problem is going to most likely be in the TV tuner board inside the TV.

1 Find and disconnect the cable that is connected to the
ANT IN terminal on your cable box.
? This terminal might be labeled "ANT IN", "VHF IN" or
2 Connect this cable to a two-way splitter.
3 Connect an Antenna cable between an OUT terminal on
the splitter and the IN terminal on the cable box.
4 Connect an Antenna cable between the ANT OUT terminal
on the cable box and the B-IN terminal on the RF(A/B)
5 Connect another cable between the other OUT terminal on
the splitter and the A-IN terminal on the RF (A/B) switch.
6 Connect the last Antenna cable between the OUT terminal
on the RF (A/B) switch and the ANT IN (AIR/CABLE)
terminal on the back of the TV.
After you have made this connection, set the A/B switch to the
"A" position for normal viewing. Set the A/B switch to the "B"
position to view scrambled channels. (When you set the A/B
switch to "B", you will need to tune your TV to the cable box's
output channel, which is usually channel 3 or 4.)
