How to do original channel set up on Sharp LC19DV22U LCD/DVD

by xmichiganfanx / September 6, 2010 11:02 AM PDT

I lost the remote that came with this tv. Once I arrived at my dorm I realized I wasn't receiving HD channels. To receive these channels I just need a coaxial cable plugged in and they'll come through, like local HD. Well I can get some normal channels, and no HD ones, so I figure I need to run that initially channel line up search function. Where it runs through all the signals and finds the stations. So to do this I bought a universal remote. After some time I found a four digit code (it's a GE remote) that is meant for Sharp TV/DVD Players. This code lets me use basic functions like channel up and down and volume, but none of the buttons to go to a setup menu work.

I was wondering if anyone knew any idea how I could get these channels to appear.

Also the top of my tv only has channel, volume, power, and dvd controls. No setup button oddly enough...

Who's your cable provider?

It's quite possible the channels you want to tune in are not clearQAM but encrypted by the provider and will require a cable box to decode. This is becoming more and more common. I would need to have more specifics about which cable provider you have and which channels exactly (numbers/names) do not get tuned when you do a scan.

If it's a university provided cable system/service, call your IT/telecom support number to get assistance that would be pertinent to your location/proprietary restrictions on campus. Surely someone on the floor can help(!) Wink

University of Michigan Television Network i guess. I am pretty sure I have to do the auto-setup on my tv, I just can't get to it. I just really needed to know if there was another way to do this. I don't know if the university IT could help, I guess I'll just have to call around.

Large Big Ten schools like Michigan & WI often work in tandem with their telecom support staff. I should know since I've worked for two big ten schools in particular ;).

You could think of it this way. Are you the only one bringing in such a similar small HDTV to the dorms? Wink
