Magnavox model 25TSC6 0101 able to get cable tv?

I am helping my sister get set up for cable on her tv above.
I would like to know if my Magnavox (Philips) tv will be able to be hooked up to cable tv (via cable wire) or would I need a cable converter box first?
Also I have an Insignia digital converter box bought already. If I do need a cable converter box, would the Insignia box allow me to get cable now?
Also, if we do need a regular cable converter box, can you please tell me where I might get one? P.S. I have only until Monday, June 16 to get an answer.
Thank you,
NM

You should be able to connect the cable directly to the tv, do autoprogram from the setup/channel search menu.

My Magnavox TV 27 model 27MDTR10S is stuck on channel 1. it will not change by the channel buttons or by the cable box.


Rick, TV should be set on channel 3 or 4, when using a box.
Unplug TV for 10 min.s to reset, and try.

Magnavox model # FP4630 W104 manual


GOOGLE THE MODEL NUMBER WITH MANUAL AFTER IT IF YOU NEED THAT.

In the TV menu make sure under audio speakers are switched on.

When you try to change the volume do you get a display on screen?

If the vol buttons on set work the issue is with the remote itself.

Let me know as much as you can so I can help

I have the Phillips Magnavox 20MT133S and my cable TV provider is switching to an all digital format. Will I require the use of their converter box for analog TVs? In otherwords, is this TV a digital TV?


Hello David,

Unfortunately this is not a digital TV, so you will need a digital cable box in order to watch the digital format cable channels on this set.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Regards,

We just switched from Cox Cable to AT&T U-Verse. We have a several sets throughout the house. Once the TV codes are programmed into the remotes, the U-Verse receiver and the TV are supposed to turn on and...


Yes there is, at&t techs have issues with philips/magnavox. When you are programming these tv's, you will notice if u get the right code on this particular brand, the light on the tv will blink but not turn on. This is the correct code but, the simultaneous action wont work, you'll have to hit tv first by itself and then hit power. Don't know why, but it is what it is.

Dvd input


I don't know this model of TV in particular. I can give you a generic answer that should allow you to figure this out.

Check the options for your TV set. See if there are the connectors at the rear side for an external audio and video input that is compatible to your DVD player. This would be an external video audio input option. If there is and you do not have a switch for it, then you need the original factory remote contol. Many of the universal remotes lack the full features of the products.

If your TV set does not have the option for external video and audio, one work around is to purchase an audio video RF TV modulator. Many of the stores that sell TV options usually carry these devices. You can then add a CATV 2 way cable switch to switch between the modulator and your cable service or antenna. You will have to purchase the additional necessary interconnect cables.

On the input of the RF TV modulator you would connect the DVD player. The quality will not be very good, but at least you will be able to watch the DVD player on your TV set.

Once you figure everything out, bring a print of this email to the dealer. When he looks at all this he should know exactly what you require.

Trying to get channels above 42 to 99


I had the same problem the solution is you have to get institutional remote and reset the tv from commercial mode to consumer mode and then you will have access to the full menu. go to www.phillipsitv.com to get the directions. I actually asked a Hotel could I borrow their master remote used it and took it back and my tv works fine. Hope this helps.

Get a universal remote or go online and order a replacement original remote for your model. Then use the remote to enter the menu, unlock any child locks, make sure the set is in standard cable mode and do an autoprogram.
