On a lot of tv's, when you hook to cable, then the tv has to be scanned for its cable channels.

I am not a cable television subscriber. Nonetheless, why can't I get my local public television station when this television set tunes in all other local television stations (local ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox...


Some flat screen tv's have two inputs, one for digital and one for analog reception. If your local public television station is analog, then you'll need a signal input on the analog input.
You might try temporarily moving the input from the digital to the analog then doing a new channel scan to see if this picks up the PBS station. You'll have to rescan again, when you move your antenna lead in back to digital.

I can't see NBC with the digital conveter box


Is it only NBC? Or are the other over air channels (ABC, CBS, Fox) also not seen?

Are you going through a splitter with the incoming signal? if so, make sure the splitter frequency range is at least 5 to 1000 Mhz.

You should see the 'temporary lost signal' wording on the channel. Check all cable connections to make sure the cable to connector plug are tight and not loose.

Lost sound on ABC,NBC,CBS & ESPN classic


on your remote there should be an MTS button, try that because sometimes they broadcast shows in/on mono,stereo or sap. go to those channels and try switching to either mono,stereo or sap. let me know and good luck

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

Sound problems with Insignia Flat Screen 37


It may be that the set is set for alt sound. go to the menu and set the audio to stereo. If the audio is set wrong it thinks you are set for spanish and if the broadcast is not in an alt language there will be no sound.

No cable signal


somewhere in the tv's menu (or a button on the tv or remote) there should be a way to change the tuner setting from antenna to cable. you may have to make the tv run through autotune. a switch or button may be on the back of the set, close to the
cable connector.
