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.

Do you see a model number on the mediacom receiver/box?

Can you also tell me the model number of the LG tv? What you had sent is a different tuner/box part for the LG.

I don;t think you can help me at this time. I have given every # that I see. You have not been of help to me. Please reimburse me on my account. I will have to have mediacom to my house and set it for me.
Thanks
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 2 months ago

I have no ability to cancel or refund anything. You have paid the full agreed upon fees to the site, which I have no control over, we're all independent techs here.
I can help you, but need complete and specific details to do so.

There is a model number printed right on the back of the tv. A model number example would be 55UJ6300

Thank you for the info,

the short answer is that this is not likely to work, period.

This is an older model tv and on that is not made for residential use. This is a tv that was built for use in hotels and has many restrictions on how and where it can be used, and requires special programming by a skilled tech. This is not a task for a home user.

The only thing you can TRY, is pressing the Input button on the LG remote to see if you can get to the HDMI (hdmi1) input mode. If you can, then you can plug the mediacom cable box into the tvs hdmi port on the back. If your medicom device does not have that you'd need to contact them and ask them to provide you with a full size cable box that does have hdmi. The smaller boxes are not compatible with these hospitality model tvs.

Hello, it appears your question is still open.

Do you need more help with this?

Please note: You have already paid your fees to the site; I'd like to help you and provide value for that fee, but I do need to communicate with you here to do so, if more help is needed.

TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 1 month ago

I'm sorry you feel that way. I cannot change the facts of the situation. This is a tv that was designed for use in a hotel, it was not made for home use and does not have the features necessary for use in that situation. Mediacom won't be able to do anything about that either.
