To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.

Did you use the correct setup during the tuner setup to scan the availabel cable channel per user manual?

My westing hous hdtv is stuck on channel 35-3 and will not switch to another channel, the remote doesn't work and neither do the buttons on the side of the tv, the power button works but won't


Try to unplug power from set for a while and plug back to reboot--immediately delete that channel from the set's memory as it may contain signal that is causing this.

Also look to see if the set has a feature to lock out the buttons and or the remote control---a few do.

Most likely something in the signal for that set caused the set to lock up.

I need to unlock my Platinum Telefunken set top box. My remote won't work at all and I put new batteries in and it's not that. The green light is on "Lock" on the actual set top box....


I have the same problem, but with no picture at all on my HD Channels. All I did was to retune my TVs analogue channels and bingo I got all my HD Channels back. My HD Set Top Box is still showing as locked.

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.

My 32" Vizio when not on a HD channel has a


could possibly be a Line noise issue from your cable provider, if it's an analog signal. I would try another room in the house to see if your problem goes away. If not, it may be something your cable company may have to look into. This may also be associated with intermittent connectivity if you have cable internet as well.

The tv is showing a double image and I cannot get the color right! Model number 50v500


Hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} You need to upgrade to the high definition cable box---but first try this. Hook the cable from the wall directly to the tv and autoprogram it. If Comcast is anything like charter they transmit the local Hd channels in a format that digital tuner will pick them up. Just channel up/down and check out the channels with -1 and -2's behind them. Depending on where you are----your local channels will usually show up wherever they normally do but with a -1 behind it.

EX: local Fox channel on 47---autoprogram and check 47-1

If this is enough HD for you then get a two way spitter and hook your box back up and keep using the RCA (composite) cables for the best it can produce.

hope this will help..

I purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV. I have a Cable box and my cable provider (Time Warner Cable) provides free HD Channels. However.... I CANNOT PICKUP ANY HD CHANNELS ON THE NEW TV. WHY???...


I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.

Screen blacks out on HD channels


Saying that the problem is with your TV doesn't make any sense since your TV is fed from the cable box.  Your TV doesn't know one channel from the next.  If it had a problem it would effect all channels.  You may not have enough signal to the INPUT of your cable box due to a problem on the pole or at your house or both.  Insufficient signal can cause some digital channels to not get decoded properly by the cable box.  The lower channels will show noise symptoms such as what you describe but they won't crap out altogether like the digital ones.  Have a cable tech come out and measure the signals.

Do you have splitters in line with the cable anywhere?  If there's any way to beef up the amount of signal getting to the cable box try it.

Sci Atlanta 8300 DVR HD sound in HD channels soft - analog channels OK


Experience has shown that with this relatively new mode of transmission, audio levels can be quite dynamic. If your set provides it, you may try turning on "Audio Compress" or whatever the name might be. Could also be called Dynamic audio also or some such. Reason for all the hubbub is that along with HD, mixing engineers are also providing the most range for the audio dynamics as well the most video composition info in the new broadcasts...Accordianman.
