Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you today
Please note that I am an independent tech. that depends on your positive rating to get paid by this website and I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.
That being said , a few questions coming up and by the way , pearl that greeted you is a computer so never mind the odd questions and suggestions;
Please let me know when you are ready to proceed .

You should be able to skip the channel search/scan if you are not connected to an antenna .

Simply press the INPUT button repeatedly on the remote until you get to whatever is connected , be it cable box , satellite receiver etc.

Sorry but there was a payment failure on that phone request and although I`m not privy to billing here this usually means your CC company did not recognize the charges and declined them , you would have to contact them to OK the transaction .
But we can continue in this chat mode as well

Any questions on this ?

Expert:  Jack replied 8 months ago.

Did you try to change the input instead of going through that first time setup ?

As I said , unless you need to do a channel search you should be able to get out of there after language setup
