Hello
My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with this.

How do you normally receive your tv channels , antenna ,straight cable ,cable with cable box and cable remote or satellite box ?

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

If you have a cable box or satellite then look on the tv`s remote for the INPUT /SOURCE button most often at the top of the TV`s remote 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.

Let me know how that goes and PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO RATE my answer positively (use the stars at the top of your page and SUBMIT to rate) if that answers your question / does the trick as it is the only way i get paid for helping you
