FIOS / Cable box needed?

With FIOS, I'd prefer not to use a cable box as I'm planning on hanging the TV on my wall. What channels will I receive? What type of TV do I need to buy?

Greetings mjt444,

It appears that with basic FIOS you will recieve between 15 and 49 channels. You would most likely need to consult with Verizon to find out more specifics on that. As long as your television is high definition ready, it should not matter what type you purchase, however one with an internal tuner would be preferrable. I would ask your local sales person what type they recommend. The sales staff in any Best Buy™ store should be qualified to answer these types of questions.

I hope this helps.

TV will not display picture or sound except for 1 station which appears to be 440. I can't change the channel either at the dials or remote. The display says EAS.


DONT USE the remote that came with your TV

use the buttons on the box to change the channel. did the channel change?

usually when someone only has one channel its because they are changing the tv channel not the cable box channel

think of it like this:
the TV is a monitor and should always be on the same channel (3, 4, hdmi, or whatever) its actually the box that tunes and the tv always stays on the same channel.

so if you change the tv channel you are no longer watching the output of the cable box.

USE the remote supplied by your cable provider

Re: tv unable to program channels


Hm..
So you want to connect your receiver thing to your tv ?
or your cable ?

Well if the antenna cable is hooked up, you should be able to simply run it up behind your tv and put it on the antenna plug.

The reveiver should attach to your tv with a cable provided.

U-verse will not show on guide plus rca


its not always going to be channel 3, it depends on the input cable you are using, if you are using an HDMI cable you need to switch to the hdmi input, same with component, and if you are using RCA cables it will probably be called video. Try your other inputs dont just stop at channel 3. If you are using coax and its supposed to be on channel 3, make sure you are on the correct coax jack on the receiver, make sure its the "to tv" jack not the "to wall" jack.

My Motorola dct700 is turning on and showing the guide page but says channel should come on soon had been this way all day, nothing wrong with the cable trying to get it on rather than waiting for tech. I...


This only happens under 2 conditions. 1) you are not getting signal or 2) the box is bad. Now if you have cable in the rest of the house it could be a glitch with that box. Sometimes the box doesn't communicate to the cable co or vice versa. By resetting I'm assuming you disconnected power from the wall and waited over a minute. A call to the cable co will be needed to resend a signal over the line to activate it. Some cable co can even do this by an automated system. If the box is bad, well you gotta call them anyway.

Charter remote will not change channels--I have put in tv code but still nothing--noting on the remote will work except to power the tv on


You will need to program it to your cable box to change channels. Remember, the channels in your tv are coming from your box, so if the remote can't control the box, you won't be able to change channels. Call charter for help on programming remote to cable box.

No tv channels with Philips 42FD9935/17


If you are using a Cable Box, then select the Cable Box option in the TV. If you have connected the Antenna directly to the TV, then select the Antenna option in the TV under Menu options. Try performing the Auto program.......If using a Cable Box, then no need to perform the Auto program. If the issue persists, try resetting the TV to the factory settings and check if it helps.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

Verizon FiOS doesn't get new digital multicast channels


Solved that problem by installing and over-the-air antenna and am in the process of firing my cable company. I will retain their internet service and go to a base package on satellite for the likes of my kids' favorite networks (Nick, Cartoon Net, Disney) and my Fox News Channel), but my programming options are already growing from 7 analog to 13 digital from off-air in recent months and another 2-5 different subchannels are likely in my market in the next 24-36 markets (for free). Why pay to watch commercials when they are free?
