If you have a crank up antenna that uses a power booster, turn it off....then in tv menu, change setting from air to cable, scan for channels.....if not, hang on....someone will chime in...

Many of the cable companies now require one of their boxes to decode the digital signal. Does this one need a box?

Your 19 might be different than my 15 ... but , go to your TV and on the main TV remote, push source and then highlight TV and not satellite. Then go to menu, Broadcasting and pick antenna then cable. And then do an auto program to get the channels on your cable.

I sometimes also have to do something with my box of many buttons, but you don't have one of those I think. Let us know if it works. Lynn

The 19 TV's are a little different. The selection between antenna and cable is buried, I believe it is under program on the left side of the screen in menu. select that then move over to cable on the right, then scan cable only. Make sure the front TV antenna is turned off, that is the signal booster all in one that needs to be off to scan cable channels.
I had to play around with it to find cable and channel scan, much different that the Classic TV's were. Also the Matrix has to be on TV, that thing drives me nuts. Too many buttons to push just to watch a simple TV program. It's a good thing Beachbum told me to be patient and allow 30 seconds for switching...mine probably would have been in the trash.

Chuck, do you know why they went to the “matrix”? The 2017 doesn’t have it and seems to work fine. I just wondered what the advantages were, if any.

J.H I still need to get more familiar with it. I know whenever I go to do something it's on the wrong setting on the Matrix. Just wanted to point that out as it's a problem for me getting use to.

Thanks ... I figured they might be. I don't answer questions anymore because "classics" are now indeed, classics!

Classic information is valuable, lots of new Classic owners that are lurkers. Many of those owners did not get the bag of books with the coach.

Trust me, it is more dependable than the Matrix

One of the best things they did on the 20's is move it inside like the BOMB. At least you can see what setting you're on.
The current Matrix is like having the BOMB in the basement. If you change functions on the main TV, the forward TV changes as well. Get ready to leave and you are no longer on the Nav screen, a trip to the basement to see what your on, then toggle to the correct setting. With the BOMB, push a button.....done.
