I have made it through the first 8 pages of this thread and can tell that there is a lot of great information being shared. However, it is so long I am not sure how to find the specific information I need, so please forgive me if this question has already been addressed and I could not find it. I have a Pioneer 5071 and just had the cable card installed. However, neither the cable guy nor I could figure out how to get the channels on my tv to go over double digits. When I try to set a 3 digit channel on the tuner manually, the tv tells me it is an "invalid channel number". When I try to set the channels automatically, they stop after 99. The cable guy tried using ANT A and ANT B and had the same results. He called Comcast to ensure that the channels were enabled in my service package and they were. Does anyone have any idea what my problem is and how to fix it?
EDIT: the TV actually will go past channel 99 to around 111 or 117 (can't remember which one off the top of my head); however, the tv will not go past that range and all my HD channels are in the 180's. is the 5071 tuner capped at 111 for some reason? when i enter a number like 186, i end up at channel 86. when i try to manually add channels to the list in teh tuner menu, it says channels with high numbers like 186 are invalid
On a separate note, can anyone point me to information explaining how I can get television signals in both picture boxes for the split screen function (PIP)? I thought the tv had dual tuners, but maybe it does not. I have a DVD player and a VCR I could use, but I am not sure how to set them up to give me two signals for PIP with the cable card. thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
