I have an Emerson TC 2556D television that I had picked up at yard sale, with no remote. We have cable hooked to it; however, it only gets a few of the channels that are available. The picture is wonderful on the channels that we do get.

Re: Television not getting all of the channels
I hate to tell you this but you cannot add channels without an original replacement remote, and that costs about 40 bucks here http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&smodel=TC2556D&brand_pn=EMERSON_TC2556D&mode=large&uid=11743431409220
This remote if you notice has an add, delete,and the auto buttons. A universal will not have these functions on it. Good Luck.

Of course, analog channels are being phased out (or have already been phased out) & are being repurposed for use in other technology. This could make contriving such a device accessory unethical & possibly illegal.
As far as receiving free over-the-air digital television channels is concerned, it would be better to start the effort aequipped with information as to what is available in your local viewing area. HDTV Pub (http://www.hdtvpub.com/) could help you with that.
If you have the technology for watching digital television channels, digital channel television antennae are availabe in a number of stores.
You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.
go to the options with the remote on your tv, then do a channel scan. it will scan for any channels you are picking up. if you have basic cable you will only have a few HD channels. if you have a cable box then the cable box should show you what channels are HD
The only way you can do it is maybe with a universal remote. There is no other way. Sometimes you may find an exact remote control for your TV at a local TV repair shop. Somtimes a customer who never picked up their TV or never was able to fix would keep the remote so they can sell them for a few bucks.
theres a switch on back of tv that says cable or tv switch it to cable and that should fix the problem do you happen to have the remote for this i'm looking for a part # for that tv's remote email me at [email protected] if you have the remote thanks
I looked up the specs for your TV. It says nothing about a digital tuner at all. I believe you must get a box from your cable provider. I'm sure that they want to keep you around, so they should give you a cable box for free.
