I need help on setting the tv with my comcast cable. I pressed the "source" button, and put it on digital tv, analog tv, composite, s-video, HDMI, and DVI. The T.V. is not picking up any cable channels. Please help me A.S.A.P

The ILO 2600 does NOT have an ATSC tuner for the current digital broadcasting. Note that a slightly later version *might* have come with such.
Later models equipped with it usually have TWO coaxial inputs on the back whereas the original one only has the now obsolete NTSC coaxial input.
There are several possible explanations of what your friend has told you: he may have had a different model or he may have connected it to a cable which was broadcasting in the older analog format already. Or he simply had a different TV with a built-in tuner that can pick the signal.
So first thing I'd check is the number of antenna inputs you have on the back. When there are two the second is usually labelled "DTV".
Second, is there a Comcast cable box somewhere on your end? And if yes then isn't there other outputs to it other than the coaxial cable?
Finally, it is possible to find a digital-to-analog converter on Internet and eBay in particular, but I wouldn't rush doing that. It's practically half the price of a new 32'' LCD TV and you wouldn't be quite happy with the quality anyway.
I suspect you are seeing the Main Menu for the source that you are currently using. Press the Source button (TV/AV on the TV itself) and make sure you are on TV source. The menu will have a set of icons if it is set for analog and a vertical list in digital. Select Setup (use the up/down arrows for digital and the left/right for analog - it's the first one in the list) and click OK. Then select Installation (third one in the list) and then press OK. Next select Automatic channel scan (first one again) and press OK. You will see a warning prompt, highlight Yes and click OK to scan for digital channels. When it is done, it will ask if you want to scan for analog channels.
I know where you have gone wrong. When you turned your tv on it was on the terrestrial channel. Which allowed you to tune in the normal Analog channels.
If you look on your tv remote you will have a button that says DTV click this if there is not one press you source / av button until you get to your freeview tv screen. Then what I would like you to do now is press the menu button and this will allow you to tune in your Freeview tv from there.
Hope this makes sense.
Please leave a thumbs up when you get it sorted out.
I Believe You Can Go To Channel 2 And Right Below Those Channels Are The 3 Video Channels Turn On Your Dvd Player And Go Through Them. If That Doesn't Work Try Looking At The Buttons On Your Tv For A Tv Video. Make Sure You Dont Have A Tv Video Button On Your Remote If You Do Then Just Click It Till You Find The Appropriate Video Channel.
i too went 3months with no remote or codes finally a young tech at walmart in another town told me to use 0171 code but cable guy set me up on cable remote to turn tv on and off tech told me to get a one for all remote 9.99 at walmart and code it but to also push setup code for tvdvd and enter code i use cable remote for tv viewing and the one for all to reach video 2 (press tv/vid button twice) for games and dvd player now i can access menu and use my tv as it should hope this helps
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???
