Don't know where you are from, however, if you are with mediacom or a similar Cable provider, They informed me that their cable box does the converting and will only work when your tv is set to Analog. So, searching for "digital" channels will get you no-where. Set and search channels in analog and you "should" receive digital. Call your local cable provider and see if they tell you the same. Silly question, but are you signed up for digital service???

Tv problem- I have a LG model47lb5800. when I turn on the TV it shows a picture and sound for about 3-10 minutes. The TV then goes black flashes a picture intermittently. What's failing?

I had a similar problem in DEC 2017. Curiously the cable company stopped by in a week or so. (I did not call them for service.) It was a "SPECTRUM" truck and not an "OCEANIC" truck. Apparently Oceanic got bought out and the Technician was going around the neighborhood (Honolulu) searching for "Home Broadcasts" I remember reading about WW2 military was looking for homes with RF signals (looking for spys) I'm a retired Army Signal Corps. The Spectrum tech installed a filter on my cable line to prevent our home from producing stray signals. He also told me that my 'analog' TV won't work in JAN 2018 as they are switching to all digital by then. Says my cable will work for a while but expect the company to switch all the cable boxes out to digital. Sure enough my TV stopped working (on analog channel 3) and my cable box stopped sending the analog signal to my analog set. I found out that some of the other outputs worked (HDMI, Optical, etc.) I got the Bedroom TV (bought 2017) to work on HDMI. Picture is crisp BUT I don't seem to have the picture size right. It's smaller than normal (on analog) and changing screen from normal, wide, zoom, etc. really makes it worse. Panoramic is the best so far. Now I notice our older 'Monitor' 42" Plazma (2010?) still works on Chan 3 analog signal. I didn't have another HDMI ($30) cable so I tried using my old DVD Yellow-White-Red RCA cables and found it did not work.
* So.. Short answer; you need to get your TV hooked up to the HDMI output of the cable box. But I would check with your cable company first to see if they can resolve your issue. Now days, they can use a computer (from their end) to correct the problem or send out a service tech.

PS Try rescanning for channels. You will need channel 3 (sometimes #4) If it shows vertical bars then your set can't tune to the cable box. (Just like the old days of "Outer Limits") They do control the horizontal and vertical. You can try to hook your TV directly to the cable without the cable box to get some of the analog and digital channels if your set is less than 10 years old. But the channels are weird and hard to browse. You will need to write down the channels to remember your favorites. Cable remote won't work. But this is just a short term fix. You will end up subscribing to a cable or internet TV service.

The analog tv picks up a lot more stations and correct channels than the LED TV. Is it possible to set the Insignia LED NS-19E320A13 to analog? Is there a device available?

Do you have a digital converter box. If not, you need to get one to receive the analog channels.

Hello, I am currently having a problem with my Audiosonic KM0767 Standard Definition Set Top Box. When we first bought it we wired up all the plugs and it worked great. We then moved onto Foxtel...

did you switch the TV's incoming signal to digital antenna? For the cable box it was probably set to cable antenna or analog inputs, not all TV's have automatic switching for antenna feeds. My Mitsubishi has 1 digital and 1 analog antenna input and the cable box will only work through the antenna input if it's the analog antenna input and it's tuned to channel 3 or 4, -(or through a seprate HDMI, PROSCAN, SVCR,or a yellow RCA plug input)- and when the analog antenna input is selected the TV will tune all analog cable channels that the cable service offers if a box is not used. likewise the TV will not tune any channels at all if it's set to digital antenna inputs. It will tune all local channels only when set to digital antenna inputs.

I need to connect my vcr/dvd combo unit to an Emerson HD TV so that I can record shows. Can you help me?

Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.

Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).

Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.

Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.

I hope this helps.

JVC Television 56" in Digital Mode

somewhere in the tv's menu there will be something called autotune or channel settings. while in that part of the menu you should find something to change settings. also there are many inputs on the back of big screen tv's, you might try a different input like cable/antenna for instance. it may take a two way splitter to split the signal for both digital cable and analog cable. by next february the analog part of the cable may not work anyway.
