Who is your cable company?

Do you change channels/guide with the original remote that came with the tv, or with a remote that your cable company gave you?

Set the tv so you can see a spectrum cable channel

Unplug the power cord for the spectrum tv box

Wait a minute then plug the spectrum tv box back in

Watch the tv as the box boots up
