Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Can you tell me how you are getting your tv channels? Basic cable (coax only) or do you have a comcast cable BOX connected?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I have Comcast cable Box for HDTV Sony set. I have tried changing on the TV input MTS auto under Tools.. HDMI 3 Tools does not highlight MTS Auto. Also tried changing various cable Settings, but nothing seems to help.

I’ve attempted to accept your call request, but it appears to have failed on your end due to a payment issue. You may need to increase your deposit or call your bank to clear a security hold on your account (the 2nd charge is usually what triggers this, not a problem with the card number/info).

If you prefer to continue here in chat, that is fine too. Just let me know either way.
