Okay, you need to run an HDMI cable from that Cable Box to your TV. Have you done that yet?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 8 months ago

After the HDMI cable is connected, you need to use the Insignia remote's Input/Source button and select HDMI 1 (or HDMI 2- depending on which port you plugged into on the TV). You then should have the cable box info on the screen and would use the cable box remote to change channels.
