Hello Jack


How do you or will you receive your tv channels , antenna ,straight cable from the wall outlet or cable box with remote or satellite box ?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
HDMI-Straight Cable

OK then HDMI and straight cable do not fit here

You mean that you do have a cable box if you are using HDMI

In that case Look on the tv`s remote for the INPUT/SOURCE then press it repeatedly to go through the various inputs until you get to your cable/satellite box or select that input from the input list once opened if you know which one it is , typically HDMI 1 for example.

If that answers your questions for now then PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO RATE (stars above and submit), it does not cost you anything more and does not close this post ,
Also you can come back at any time without additional charges if you have further questions or need help and it gets this independent tech. paid for his time helping you .
