You'll need to find the Cable/Antenna setup and change it from Antenna to Cable. Sometimes the setting you want is called CATV.

SOURCE: toshiba 13' tv dvd combo, Fios remote control need code

Greetings!

Here are the codes: take a deep breath:

0181, 1283, 0183, 1292, 0087, 0677, 0859, 0872, 1183, 1383, 1683, 1731

You may find that these don't work. Often, with combination pieces like yours, you will find you are lucky if you can get a universal remote to turn it on and change the volume and little more. The fact that Toshiba did not build this peice can compound the problem. My suggestion, if you can't get the universal to program up, is to use the original remote for the set. If you do not have the original remote it is available from www.encompassparts.com for around $15.00 plus shipping. The original part number for the Toshiba remote is 72796929.

Good luck!
Rob

SOURCE: TV stuck on Channel Fixed;6

Go in to the user menu and find where the Auto Channel Setup is located. You can consult the instruction booklet for your TV set. Try this and see if it works. If it does not then there are a number of areas in the set where there can be some defective components.

The tuner is controled by the uPC system. There are a number of interface circuits involved for the channel control. Problems in these areas can cause the channels to not be able to be changed.

SOURCE: Channel Scan on my Philips 26" TV only finds the local channels.

Hi.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

SOURCE: only goes to channel 13

It probably has to do with a setting in your menu. Usually it is the antenna category. Change it to Cable or CATV.

How to find channels for air flat antenna setup


Go to menu. Choose the channels option. It will ask how you are viewing tv. Choose air antenna. It should automatically do a search or you may have to scroll down to the search. Choose that and it will pick up any channels available and program them into the tv. It will take 5 or 10 minutes for the search to go through the whole process.

My Tv no longer registers a signal from the antenna. I can see a picture thruogh my smart DVR and Chromecast but no pic with TV antenna. I bought a new antenna, still no signal.


Is the TV set to air or cable? It has to be set to air/antenna and a channel search has to be done first before a picture will show.

Wont find channels on auto channel search


Ensure that you have a good connection to your antenna/cable/satellite, and that you have selected the proper signal type in your TV menu.

If you are using a cable box or satellite, you might need to search for an analog signal on channel 3 or 4. If your cable/satellite box outputs an HDTV signal, then search the digital channels. If you are using an antenna, search for digital channels and set it the TV to Air in the Channel menu.

Tv will not recognise an antenna


Try to search for the channels using the antenna directly into the TV (remove the splitter) if you can pick up all the channels, then there is a problem with the splitter, if you still can't get anything, then most likely the tuner in the TV will be at fault.

Digital TV not picking up all channels


TV is searching for over the air channels. Select in the main menu to go from over the air to cable channels and you should be fine.

Tuning in the tv


Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast) and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!
