    Input Source choices are: TV, AV, S-Video, etc. I accepted TV. After that it has a screen which comes up "Channel". It has TV source ---Air or Cable. I picked Cable. It scans the channels but doesn't find any.

    I have the coax cable coming directly from the wall into the TV. I tried connecting the TV to the cable box which worked. But I don't have a cable box in my bedroom.

Have you done an auto-channel search?There will likely be 4 different setups which it will look for channels.With regular basic cable,you definitely should get something.On mine,for the 4 different setups,it has DTV,TV,cable digital,and I believe digital HD.You need to open the channel menu and get to either the cable digital or HD to receive channels.Let me know if you have done an auto-channel scan first,then I can guide you better from there.Greg

    I also forgot to ask,is there anything else connected to your TV such as DVD,VCR or anything else?Also,how do you have your TV wired up?Is it straight coaxial cable from the outside?Please let me know everything else connected,if any,and if there is a DVD player/recorder.If there is a DVD recorder,does it have a digital tuner?That means you would be able to change channels with it.Everything connected to TV,and how wired(output X to input Y etc.).Thanks Greg

    So the new TV is in your bedroom?Try this.Click on FAV.Then there should be an option for Channel Edit.That should open the menu for the 4 options which I talked about.What would be easir is if you are in USA and have free long distance.727 584 2554 Greg

Wont find channels on auto channel search


Ensure that you have a good connection to your antenna/cable/satellite, and that you have selected the proper signal type in your TV menu.

If you are using a cable box or satellite, you might need to search for an analog signal on channel 3 or 4. If your cable/satellite box outputs an HDTV signal, then search the digital channels. If you are using an antenna, search for digital channels and set it the TV to Air in the Channel menu.

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?


You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.

Just tried to hook my aoc 22" to high definition


I beleive you have to enable audio in the HDMI SETUP so it will send the digital audio through HDMI ports, check the cable box and the TV HDMI sound setup.

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.

Phillips dvdplayervideorecorder connect w/zinwell converter box


First off get the TV on the right channel. It will either be ch3 or ch4. If you are using a cable box the dvd/vcr combo will have to be on ch3 or ch4 as well. OK, Make sure the input connector on the combo is hooked to the output connector of the cable box and the output connector of the combo is hooked to the input connector of the tv. Deal with one part at a time. First hook the combo to the tv and get the tv on the right channel (ch3 or ch4) so that you can see a pre-recorded dvd or video play. Then you will know what channel the tv is supposed to be on. When you find it don't bother the tv channel any more. Stop the dvd or video and hook up the cable box and turn on the cable box and set the box to a known good channel. Now put the combo on ch3 or ch4 with the combo's channel selector buttons until you see the cable box playing on the tv (remember you already set up the tv channel). Change channels on the box but don't bother the channels on the tv or combo anymore. You can put the box on whatever channel you want. The box will be your channel selector. I certainly hope that this helps. I know it can be confusing but don't give up. Just remember that the tv and combo have to always be on ch3 or ch4 (which ever one you found before). Good luck and thanks.

New Sharp Aquos LCD 46 TV


If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps

TV will not get cable channels


If you have it hooked up to a digital box, it shouldn't matter if the TV is on cable or antenna mode. The only thing that matters is that the TV is on channel 3. Channels will be changed on digital box. Some newer TV's use input 1 or 2 or AUX for it to work. If I were you i would hook everything up and start playing with the channels going up and down until you get a picture.
