I have a element tv and I can't get any channels programmed in but ch.3. It is hooked up to suddenlink box.i have tried autoscan and nothing


The suddenlink box transmits on channel 3 and is the only signal being transmitted. When the TV looks for all channels it will only see the one coming into it. This is normal because it is assumed you are controlling channels with the sudden link box, not the TV. If you are using an antennae then you need to go into the TV's setup menu and change the settings from cable to antennae.

Got new didital vizio modejE601-C3 today it is hooked up to cable but will not pick up digital channels and will only pick up 1 analol channwl3


if you have a cable hooked to it,then you need to pay for a cable tv subscription,you cannot get free digital channels on it,you shouldnt get any analog channels unless a station hasnt changed to digital,you need a cheap hdtv antenna to receive digital channels over the air.

I have a VIZIO LED/LCD VF551XVT hooked up to a motorola HD DVR with a HDMI cable. When I switch from standard Def to High Def channels I lose the sound. If I turn the TV off/on the sound returns but if I...


I have the same set, same problem with one of my MOTOROLA boxes, but not with another. I have a SONY TV that works fine with this new MOTO box, but the new VIZIO does not. The audio is coming through the HDMI cable just fine, and the fact that it works when you cycle power on your TV means it's the SYNC between the TV and the BOX. I have the identical problem and am taking back the MOTO box for another one. I spoke to VIZIO for about 45 minutes trying different things. They think it's the MOTOROLA box, COX (my cable company) thinks it's this particular box, who knows.

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.

Vizio 320m. I set it up wrong. Instead of choosing


You should be able to use the input/source function on your remote to select which signal sources you want the TV to display, find out which input on the TV you have the cable box hook it up to then just select that input. Do you still have the user manual?

Is there a reset default setting?


Do you recieve any channels if you run the cable directly from the wall to the TV and do a channel search? You may have to switch your TV over to a different input source if you are using a box. Please email me at tina-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com for more information. Thanks!

I recently changed from Cable to Direct Tv now when I change channels the screen goes blank for 15-30 seconds before the actual show begins. the picture is fine but there is a delay when changing channels


When you switched from cable to Direct TV you went from a direct connection to having a box in the middle. The box is required to to decode the signal. There is nothing wrong with the tv, you just may not have the best signal.
