Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV
I have a Time Warner HD digital cable box, and have the component cables (no HDMI port on TW box) connected from output on TW box to input on TV. When I go to correct video source, I get cable, but it is extremely blurry even the digital guide. I try to use the auto find for the digital channels, and it comes back saying that 0 were found. No channels are in HD at all.

I don't know where you're located but you may want to double check with Time Warner on the availibilty of an HD box. I have TWC with an HD tier package and have an HDMI out on the box that runs directly into HDMI on this TV. Hope that helps!

As far as "finding digital channels" on this TV, I'm also unable to do so. After skimming through some other AV forums I think I might have the answer you're looking for. From what I understand, this TV is designed to "search" for digital (or analog) channels when hooked up to an external antenna. I don't think it works when hooked up to a cable box with HDMI connection. Now I could very well be completely wrong about this, but for now, that is the best conclusion I've been able to come to. Hope that helps.
We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

7-27-11: Just purchased Sony Bravia 40BX420 - got HDMI cables - hooked directly from Time Warner cable box to back of TV - auto programming run multiple time and "0" channels found.
Disconnected cable from TW cable box and voila!.......Auto Programing worked! Substantial improvement in sound volume also! Great tip! Now to get rid of the box and save a few $ on our cable bill! :D

I have the same problem with the same tv (brand new), but I DO have an HDMI output from the cable box. I connected the cable from the back of the box to the back of the tv and still no luck. Our cable is completely digital, but the tv states that it can't find any digital channels.This makes no sense. We receive nothing but digital channels. Please help!
mine is samsung lcd series 3 and the channels has gone... help me on how to reprogram it. thanks! i need instruction for this
Digital box Goodman subtitles don't come on when you choose channels you have keep grinning over
720 tv with regular cable. no hdmi is available on cable box tried adjusting still blurry
LED241127FHD 24" tv was working fine via hdmi to my MacBook, virgin hd box and toshiba laptop until yesterday. When hdmi is plugged into either of the laptops the screen flickers then goes to no signal. With the virgin box the TV guide and menus will work but there will be no pictures when you choose a channel. It's like the actual video is not supported but the basic guides etc are. Does not make sense. Have tired 2 different hdmi cables.
