We just switched to cable from Dish and now two of our tvs can't get all the channels. On one you can only input 2 numbers to go to that channel but you can scroll up to about 120. Our cable goes well past that, I believe into the 300s. One is an Orion 13", model #tv1934 and the other is an Admiral 13", model #jsj12317. Anyone know a way to fix this? I tried to find manual online but wasn't successful. I'm thinking we are SOL unless we get a cable box or something. Last time I had cable there were only about 70 total channels.

You could look for a cheap VCR that has a tuner with more channels, and use it's tuner in place of the TV's. Don't know if you'll be able to find anything that'll cover much beyond the 120's though, short of getting the cable boxes.

Sudden Link.
I was hoping there might be a little switch somewhere that will allow for the higher channels. :-(
