Hello my name is Anthony
Welcome
Thanks for the Question
Are you getting any message on the screen from the set-top-box or is there just nothing there?
If there is nothing there please reboot both the TV and the box by un-plugging both from the wall-power waiting 5 mins then re-plugging back in again let me know if that changes anything.
Anthony

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
