Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Answers :

You can but the connection type is not the problem. If you have Coax cable or antenna type signal you need to put that into a tuner capable of providing the RCA (baseband or composite) video out with RCA audio as well. However if one is going that route with a HD display then the SVHS tyoe connector or even HDMI or some component level cables should be used to get the full benefit of the HD signal.
If your HDTV has no Coax input then it is not a TV but a display
device more like what is used in computers.

I own a Westinghouse LTV-32W1 and I am trying to hook Comcast basic cable up to it through the coaxial input. But, the only coaxial input is labeled ANTENNA.. I had the TV scan channels from cable AND antenna and it only found one channel. Analog at that. But, it doesn't do anything. How do I run basic cable to this TV? I thought, because it was HD-ready that I wouldn't need a box. :/
