SYLVANIA LC200SL8 ? 20" LCD-TV Settup up channel setup

I bought the above tv mentioned in the subject line and like it says........i need help setting up the channel setup... Well help understanding it actually. The instructions might as well all been written in chineese because that is what the english part sounded like to me.
anyways i have the option of these setups
Ch (TV)
! CATV takes approx. 50 min.
That is exactly how the setup screen presents itself. I have managed to set it up for cable and cant remember how i even set that up to be honest. Now i think i remember this correct the Ch Tv is for regular no cable channel setup so that is useless to me
what is the TV DTV for and what is the CATV and why was there two of them and why would it take 50 minutes to set it up.....
I sure hope this makes sense to you guys. I called Sylvania....and I understood the guy in India about as much as I understood the written instructions, he was a real sweet guy but the accent nearly killed this half texan half Nyker, i have accent delimas of my
any and all help will be appericated soooo sooo much

    ahh thank you for answering.....and so fast too!

    I think i may understand now.......

    Let me see if i got this correct in my feeble lil mind...

    my cheap cable provider (who doesnt charge cheaply but is cheap service) they dont offer my local channes that have hd....for example......PBS they have their local regular channel then they also have a local hd channel.......same as my local cbs channel....they have regular local and then a regular hd channel......... is this was the catv setup would be for? the one that would take 50minutes to set up?

    I hope this makes sense to ya.........

    thanks for your help i do appericate it very much.......

This is the chanel set up options I see on the online manual:
! CATV takes approx. 50min.
To set up for over the air broadcast that local channels now have in HDTV, you will select AUTO PRESET CH(DTV). You will have to disconnect cable for this option; however, the cable company will send local channels over the cable.
Bottom line, if you have cable, use it, it will most likely still deliver the best signal.
So coonect cable and use this option:
Oh, and the reason it takes so long is because there are more channels to scan with cable then with the local over the air channels.

I purchased a sylvania 26" lcd hdtv and i have


in your warranty should be a list of certified service shops that you can go to. Usually it is at the end of it, last pages. Also, you will need your original receipt when you bought the TV. If you cannot find the service number or location, call the shop where you bought the TV and ask for it. DONT say your warranty is about to expire because they might try to trick you.

I believe that those black lines are malfunction that your warranty covers, be sure to do it tomorrow!

Hope I helped, thanks for using FixYa!

Some channels have no sound, other channels are ok, one channel sound goes in and out....what do I check for?

Problem :
some channels have no sound.
Theres nothing wrong with your TV, is a misconfiguration of your Cable / Satellite box.
Check in the Setup of your Box the language option and select "Channel default"

I have connected the cable line to the vcr/dvd player and the player to the sylvania TV, but I cannot get the picture to come on. The television function works fine. Are there some other cables or another...

Is there a box from the cable company? If so, you will need to tune the TV to the channel that the box outputs it's signal on. Usually it's either channel 3 or 4. Whether you have a cable box or not, make sure in the set-up menu for the TV, that you have selected "cable" not "air" as your signal source. Write if you need anymore assistance.
