Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

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. :/



Answers :

If you are trying to hook it up with cable make sure that the Tv is on cable mode. You will not need to scan for channels if you are using cable. If you scan for channels you are telling the Tv that you are going to use an antenna. Just put the TV on cable mode then close all windows and try to watch the TV. If that does not work that means that you will need a cable box. If you are using a cable box set the Tv to cable and turn the TV to channel 3 and you will use the cable box to change the channels.

Dvd connection we have our direct tv cables hooked up correctly we believe, because we get the signal just fine. When hooking up the A/V cables from the DVD player to the other ports available however, it doesnt pick up the signal after we change the Source on the TV. So basically, everytime we want to watch a dvd, I have to unhook the direct tv a/v cables and hook up the dvd av cables in the same ports. It works just fine then. But we would love to not have to go thru that process everytime.
