Hello Jack

Hi

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 ?

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.
