Lost the cable signal

I was watching a cable channel some of the channels had already disappeared. I thought that the cable company was having problems. Then I lost the signal I had for the channel I was watching.
I can get sat and dvd o.k. just not cable.
I checked the signal by unplugging from this t.v. and connecting to another t.v. and it worked great. Could the imput area stop working there is no other way to plug in cable with out going through other devices...............
Any ideas??????????
Thanks

Our cable company has upgraded to digital channels. This tv has the right equipment in it and should find the digital channels but doesn't. When I first did a digital channel search it grouped channels...


the cable company switched to digital just like everyone else, but that should not effect your viewing, they convert the channels back to basic cable so you can see the without having to do anything. If you want to watch "over the air" digital tv you need an outside antenna and television that can recieve digital signals, or put a digital convertor box on your set, but none of this makes any sense if you have cable because you are already getting the same channels over the cable.

How can i watch cable tv.


I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.

No channels recieved


If you have cable already, you do not need to use a converter for your picture. You would still just hook your coax cable to the tv right from the cable inlet. The converter is for over the air signals only, so you would place it between your bunny ears and the tv to convert your signal for your tv.

Can I watch tv on 1 channel while recording another?


Unfortunately no, unless you get a second converter box. You're using the converter box to select channels, and it can only be on one channel at a time. With a second converter box, you might find you need a second antenna too (so you can get a signal on both channels). And you can't program your VCR to record on different channels (since it can't control the coverter box to change channels).

(This is a case of history repeating itself. When cable TV was new, and most TV's and VCR's weren't cable-ready, you needed to use the cable company's converter box. The same problems came up then too!)

Channels disappear


Because your problem appears after 1 hour... suggests me that your TV's tuner unit or cable box is at fault.

After the unit generates heat, the components (capacitors) in the tuner is affected and throws off the frequency of each channel.

  • if it is the TV monitor's tuner rather than the cable box, then you would have to have it serviced by a repair facility.
  • if it is the cable box, just call your cable company to replace the box at no charge to you.
Good luck!

Cable stations interrupt while watching DVD


Remove power from your cable set while watching DVD and see if the problem magically goes away. If that's the case, the cable box is to blame...accordianman

There is no factory option to stop the box from poping up every time the signal changes, which is what is happening. It has something to do with signal strength or the fact that your cable box is not set up for HD. Call your cable company to get a tech out to check your signal and set up your cable box because they do not come pre-set with HD defaults.

VCR tuner cannot tune in my cable channels


It is working as designed. The purpose of your cable box is to take in a wire containing all of the possible channels you might watch, and then extract *one* channel, and force it to appear as channel 3. If you connect the cable directly to the VCR, then the VCR's "tuner" (ie, channel selector) has an opportunity to extract any channel it wants. But... as you point out, your VCR won't be able to "see" any of the digital channels. So... if your goal is to be able to watch any of the digital channels, the signal must pass through your cable box, which will put the selected channel on channel 3. There is no value in going from the VCR to the cable box, since the VCR's tuner will have already filtered out all but one channel. It would be helpful to make a list of what your useage goals really are, since there are so many different ways to hook these things up. Are you interested in: - watching digital channels? - recording digital channels? - watching one channel while recording another? - using higher quality video signals (composite, s-video, component, etc) rather than RF (ie, channel 3) And so on. Keep in mind that you have *three* tuners: Your cable box, your VCR, and your TV. It sounds like only your cable box can tune in the digital channels. If your cable box puts out any non-RF signal, then the best choice would be to go: Coaxial Wire -> Cable Box -> Video Connection -> VCR -> Video Connection -> TV, with the VCR and the TV both set to "video". Then you would only use the cable box as a tuner, the VCR would only see the tuned channel (via video in), and the TV would see the same channel (or whatever tape you are playing) on its video input.
