The local cable company has gone digital and now my westinghouse lcd tv sk-19h210s only gets 24 channels. How do I do a channel scan?


Hi, You need a analog and digital tuner in the TV, which it sounds like you don't have, or a digital cable box.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

Video 2/3 and Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan
HDMI 1/2 Memory, Digital Caption, V-Guide
OK.

HDTV with descrambler, I need a channel lineup for all channels without a cable box for Suddenlink cable in Bossier City, LA (the digital numbers like 17-2...etc). I have many channels now, but need a list...


I discovered last year what you just recently discovered. Cable TV providers transmit digital signals over cable using what is known as a QAM signal. Most new TVs (but not all) are equipped with a QAM tuner (check your owners manual in the specs section). Your cable company sounds like a kinder more humane provider, just like mine. There are no federal regulations regarding what cable companies can or cannot do with QAM transmission. Most of the big providers such as Comcast scramble most or all of these signals, forcing the customer to pay extra for cable box rental. But some of the smaller providers allow all of their basic tier, non-premium channels to be transmitted freely, meaning that if you are not interested in PPV or premium channels, you don’t need a cable box. My cable provider (Service Electric Cable TV of Lehigh Valley, PA) initially did not print any QAM channel line up, so I went through each one, wrote them down, and created an Excel Spreadsheet so I had my own printed line up, which turned out to be a good idea, because my carrier has made several changes over the past year in their line up. Later, they did post a line up on their web site, but promptly made more changes without updating the line up so my advice to you is to create your own.

Do i need a digital box-i have your 27 '' analog/digital tvmy cable co is 'pushing digital box (Shaw) thanks loads


Sounds like my cable company. I told the service guy off. I told him how the cable company is a big rip off

With that said some what you do or will need a box later. to use pay-prview or to watch HBO Showtime or a movie channel you pay for and cable channels you need a digital box.

Do you need a digial box with what you wrote you all ready has a D/A tuner bulit in your TV. Ask your do I get all the channels I watch without a Digi box if you answered Y than No you don't need a box if you see ads for a new channel you want than yes you will need a box. Call your cable comp. and ask for a channel line up. to see what channels you can get with and without a box.

Sorry to write so much but thats the only way I can answer you. I'm in the same boat I called the cable company and they told me I still needed a box I watch movies on the weekends. Well any way I Hope I Help you a LOADS.

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

I HAVE A SUMSUNG THAT IS HD, BUT IT'S NOT HDMI,i GET REGULAR CHANNELS, BUT WHEN I SWITH TO A HD CHANNEL, IT IS ALL SCRAMBLED? WHY?


I assume you have cable. The cable HD and digital channels are usually sent in Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM). The cable companies are required to send local channels in the clear but not so for any others. Regular (basic) channels may be clear or scrambled. USA many not be but HBO will be.
So you have 1 of 2 problems: (1) your TV does not do QAM or (2) they have scrambled the channels you want to see. Questions: (1) Have tried direct Over-the-Air (OTA, ATSC) reception for your locals? (2) Can you see the HD local channels on cable? (3) Are you paying for an HD box from the cable company to have the channels decoded? If in doubt contact the cable company.
Current Samsung TVs do do QAM and OTA HD. Alternatives are Dish or Direct to get satellite with an HD receiver using HDMI or 5-cable RCA. Costs are comparable but OTA wins, hands down. -Ken

How can i watch cable tv.


I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.

Cable company switched to digital and the audio quit working for channels under 100 - former analog channels. channels 100+ work fine. when I switch to dtv, I get the "no signal" message.


If you are using HDMI with the cable companies cable box, you may have to go into the
cable box menue and set the audio out as HDMI. I had a similar problem with my cable providers box.
Hope this helps,

I have experienced exactly the same issue on two Westinghouse sets. Try turning the set off when it reaches 83%. When I turn mine off and back on, it has saved the channels -- at least the ones it had found before it got hung up.
