Cable Ready Is this television/dvd player cable capable? I can only get up to channnel 13 with the remote or manual changing of the channels. I use cable as. Are there any kind of conversion boxes available if it is not. I believe I have a 19 inch though if you measure diagonally.

    Working well up to 2 days ago. It no longer recognizes channels that used to come in. We have re-set, automatically searched for new channels,checked connections,un plugged and tried to add additional channels. It does not recognize one local channel and skips from 13-22 and from 22-61. The screen says no signal.

    I'd like to know if this TV is HD also. I've had 2 HD cable boxes attached to this TV (it has the right outlets for HD) but neither of the boxes work. I have a hard time believing that both boxes are defective. I've worked with TimeWarner on the first box for a couple of hours but their CS people are pretty basic in what they can assist with. I'm taking the 2nd box back tomorrow and need to know if I'm getting the right box.

You will need to manually tune a new program channel in to the frequency that the DVD outputs at. It will tell you the frequency it is in the DVD manual. It will be Analogue TV rather than Digital TV option on TV so you need to tune in an analogue channel manually. Also make sure you use an antenna cable at 75 ohms impedance rather than a video cable. They look exactly the same but electronically they are quite different and a video cable will not work from RF out DVD player to RF Antenna In on TV.

No HD channels on a DCT700, you have to have a HD capable box from comcast. Usually $8.95 a month for box rental. Don't know a lot about DVD players. If you get a comcast HD box, and have an HD TV, you should use an HDMI cable for best picture. Second choice is component cables. Those are the red, white and yellow or red, white yellow, blue and green cables.

It is not picking up the channels , i have cable and no channnels are working at all,not even the local channels.when am changing the channel it starts at DTV then TV,then CADTV,and then CATV


Sounds like you may have a stuck button on the tv causing uncontrolled selection or the Main bd is bad. Try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player to the same input on the tv. If the tv works ok you might have a bad cable Box as well.

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

My remote wont change channels


I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume.
That is because your TV is looking at the output of the cable box (probably on channel 3 or 4) so the TV has to be statically tuned to see the cable box's output.
On the second question; I, and perhaps others, can't answer this without spending a lot of time to download manuals for both systems while you have them (presumably, since they are new) on hand. You didn't include the TV's model number anyhow so even that wouldn't be adequate.
The home theatre may have a receiver but what does it receive? Unless it also has channel capabilities that correspond to cable channels, it can't. The typical routing should be from the cable box to the TV S-video input and the sound can be routed separately from the cable box to either/or both, the home theatre's and also the TV's audio inputs.
When I am installing new stuff, I make a sketch of the routing I want (or have) to use. To me, this is less confusing than the supplied instructions.

LG TV renote not worknf on 4 new sets


Hello,

If you have a cable box (otherwise known as a set-top-box) that you have to turn on when you turn the tv on, and you use to change your cable channels, the LG remote will not control it. The LG remote is strictly for the tuner built into the television, and is not capable of controlling the cable box.

You probably see "function not available" because you are viewing the picture on an external input of the tv (component, composite, etc). Your tv cannot tune stations in when it is set to an external input that you use to watch DVD's, cable boxes, games, and other devices. The tv is telling you that you can't change channels if it is on an input.

I hope this helps you...
