I have a 2 tuner tv. When Cablevision installed my digital cable box, I lost the 2 tuner capability. Is there a special way it needs to be hooked up to get back the 2 tuner capability?

Your cable system is probably QAM (digital cable). The tuners built into the TV are analog and digital OTA tuners (ATSC and NTSC). If you connect the Cablevision box to the component video input (and connect the audio out of the box to the appropriate audio in) on the TV and an appropriate antenna to the coax (antenna) input, you will be able to swap use the tuners in the TV. (See tvfool.com for antenna types and direction or antennaweb.org for directions of the most likely stations to be received at your location. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is conservative in the list it provides.)

I hope this helps.

(please note, you probably need to get the component video cables. These have 3 RCA plugs on each end (red, green and blue). To carry the audio you need a cable with 2 RCA plugs on each end (red and white). Match the colors as you connect them.)

How do I hook up my digital cable to my ilo flat screen TV with out a box


It won't work because the tuner from your ilo TV will not be able to decode the digital signal from the cable company even if your TV has a digital tuner. The digital tuner on your TV will only decode over the air signals.
You will still need the digital cable box from the cable company.

Set up installing antenna, tried Ant A & Ant B no receptiom what do I do?


The first question you have to answer is whether your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts. TV stations no longer broadcast the "old analog" signals, but now transmit only in digital format. If your TV is not capable of receiving digital broadcasts, you will need to buy a special box which allows you to receive digital broadcasts. Then you would hook it up in the order: antenna -> digital box -> TV.

If your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts, I've found that it is very important that your antenna have a pretty much unobstructed view of the direction from which the signal is coming. For instance, if your local signals are broadcast from the southerly direction, you should try to mount your antenna to a window which is facing south.

One last point before I forget, you must make sure that you select the proper input on your tv. For instance, I have cable, and a dvd player hooked up to my tv. Before I use the dvd, I have to go into the TV menu and select my dvd. When I want to return back to cable, I have to go back into the TV menu and select the cable input.

I have a Sharp Aquos 52" LC-52LE810UN. I turned the tv on and assuming that my cablevision box is working, what do I do in settings or other aspect of the tv to make the 1080i work. I have another box...


Actually the cablevision box determines the 1080i. Once it is set on that box the television simply displays it. The cablevision box will have to be connected to the television with component cables or one hdmi cable in order for you to be able to choose 1080i on it. Usually there are resolution numbers on the side of the cable box that tell you if it's on 480, 720, or 1080. There is a red light next to the one the cable box is displaying. If this is not the right kind of cable box for that then you will need to get another one from Cablevision or just eliminate the box entirely and run the cable straight to the television. Yes you can do that and use the television's digital tuner for a beautiful, crisp picture. After removing the cable box and screwing the coax cable onto the back of the television you will have to press the input button and scroll up to TV and press enter (use a Sharp remote). Then press menu and scoll over to setup and down to CH setup. Then scroll to CH search and begin searching for the available channels. You will now use a Sharp remote to change channels.

I have a JVC tv model AV 27495. I hooked it to the cable with the cable cord. I can only get cable 2 channel. I can't access any channels. What do I need to hook into the cable? Do I need a box since...


Yes, with the Direct TV box it did all the tuning and your TV had only to be on one channel, normally ch 3 or ch 4. Now that it is not there any more your TV tuner must do the work. You now will have to tell the TV to search for channels. Use your remote and TV menu to do this. You will be able when the search is complete to see some of the cable channels but other premium cable channels you won't be able to see without a cable box.

Recording on a STB and being able to watch a DIFF channel.


It is possible to record a channel and watch a second channel. If your cable vision has digital-only signals, you will need a Digital tuner or a second cable box.
If your cable has conventional channels still, you can buy a splitter and run the cablevision to the TV and the CableBox at the same time.
Switch to the TV tuner, you see cable.
Switch to the recorder (connected to the CableBox) and you see what you can record.

You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

Hitachi 51SWX20B is this TV HD ready?


In answer to your question, you have an HD TV Monitor, which means that your television is capable of viewing high definition, but does not have an HD tuner. You will need a separate tuner or in the case of cable, a HD cable box. These are the only options that you have for viewing high definition channels.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.
