A very basic question probably...

I'm new to Crestron programming. Just got a Prodigy system. Made the programming in System Builder (not Prodigy composer) for the components below.

Main room
- 4310CI controlled by RS232
- Sharp LCD TV
- DVD player
- Pioneer Bluray player
- HD cable box

2nd zone
- Panasonic TV
- DVD player

On my touch panels I can see all my sources (and they work more or less), but there is no option to watch TV from the analogue cable TV using the tuner inside the TV.

I tried adding an additional TV of the same type to the room and assigning the TV-Tuner template to it, but I cannot imagine this is the 'official' way.

Hope someone can point me to the right direction.

You may need to create a new blank source for the TV tuner and manually add in the buttons and commands for it.

There really is no official way with Crestron because its completely customizable. Anything is possible and there are several ways to achieve the same results.
