If all you did was program a new remote...most likely issue is you may be on the wrong input. If you use the TV's original remote and use the input button on it to try all the HDMI inputs, you may find the one that your cable box is connected to.

As long as you didn't unplug any of the wires, that is likely to be your problem.
