Old Sharp TV year 1991, Model # 20A-S120

I originally posted this note in the wrong forum...sorry about that. Hope someone can help me....

renting a has an old sharp TV hooked up to Cox Cable. It only picks up a few channels. Can't find owner's manual. Set-up says do I change the set-up so the TV will pick up all the channels included in basic cable package? What do I change the set-up to? Thanks

Call Cox and...

ask them to bring you a box. If it's digital service, which more than likely you have, you wouldn't be able to see the higher channels because the tv's tuner can only handle up to 181 channels.

I have the same problem!

Did you find a solution to your problem. I have exactly the same problem with my old sharp TV.

If you know how to change switch air for cable in the settings, please let me know.

Thank you.
