I just installed google...

I just installed google home on my phone to control my wemo and realized it can control the chromecast on my family room tv. But I can't seem to switch back to regular cable tv.

Technician's Assistant: Are you getting any error messages when you try to connect to Chromecast?

No. The chromecast pic is on the tv screen. I just want to switch back to regular cable tv.

Technician's Assistant: How is your internet connection? Have you tried unplugging your modem and router, then plugging them back in?

No. But the google wemo is working now. Just set it up this morning.

Ask Your Own TV Question

Is your cable box plugged into your TV, or into a surround sound receiver?

Into the TV

Ok, on your TV remote, you'll see an INPUT (source) button. Press that repeatedly until Cable is selected.

If that doesn't give you a picture, or it's not available, look at the cable from your cable box to your TV. It will have a label on your TV of what the input is named. Use the input button to switch to that source.

Right now it's set to the input where Chromecast is connected, likely an app. Using the input button will switch back to TV.

If you are still unable to get video, please tell me the model number of the TV.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
