Take it back to where you bought the item. Most cable companies provide a box for HD TV you can't by pass unless yop have the software. Someone is misleading you. Call them back and get the tech's name, if he can't help you ask for thier legal dept. Ask the since in 4 tries TECH SUPPORT can't or won't help, is this a training problem or false advertising? Please always get the name of the persom or badge or some sort of ID. I am not telling to legally pursue this, that's up to you. I'm telling you to try the card, before playing it., or partner--throw in the hans d and take it back!

How do you hook up cords to cable box & television


WELL IT SEEMS U HAVE TWO PROBLEMS :
1ST YOUR rF SIGNAL IS NOT GETTING THRU , THIS IS A ROUND CABLE WITH A SCREW ON END TO IT , THIS ONE MUST 1ST COME INTO YOUR HOME AND GO TO CABLE BOX , THEN LEAVE OUT OF CABLE BOX AND ENTER VCR THEN LEAVE OUT OF VCR AND GO TO RF INPUT OF TV ( HAS TO BE HOOKED THIS WAY WONT WORK ANY OTHER WAY) SET OUTPUT OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 SET OUTPUT OF CABLE BOX TO CHANNEL 3 SET TUNER OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 , AND LAST SET INPUT OF TV TO rf CABLE ,CHANEL 3 , NOW YOU CHANGE CHANELS ON CABLE BOX only
2ND YOUR DVD PLAYER HAS NO RF OUTPUT SO YOU NEED TO CONNECT BY ONE OF THESE MEANS (HDMI, RGB, COMPOSITE) ALL THESE REQUIRE A DIFFERENT CABLE YOU DECIDE , THERE HOOK UP IS PRETTY MUCH ONE WAY SO I WONT ELABORATE ON EACH METHOD , BUT TV NEEDS TO BE SET TO CORESPONDING INPUT TYPE YOU DECIDED ON

My hitachi digital hdtv has always had cable hooked to it,and now i have no cable and i cant get the digital chanels to work with the antenna


The set will need a digital box to receive digital channels as it does not have a digital tuner in it--it is a very good set.

I don't now how i recive tv chanels in hd


Your source has to be in HD like a local broadcast TV station currently broadcasting in HD which you get with a VHF/UHF antenna connected to the HDTV. Most primetime TV shows are in HD so using the antenna on the HDTV is all you need. Press MENU on your TV remote and make sure you have ANTENNA set instead of cable to get local TV stations.

You also could use your local cable TV provider. You would need digital cable service and a HD cable box with HDMI or component video cable hookup to the HDTV. HD channels are typically above 100. Call your cable TV provider for more details.

Read your user manual for the LG TV. Ask for help from family, friends, neighbors, local electronics shops.

Hi, if you have a "menu" button on the front of the tv go into the menu & "auto-program" the channels, if your set does not have the menu button on the front you will have to call a local tv shop with the model number of your tv and they can order you one, gl, video-tek
