I just bought the new Sony Internet TV. Connection issues have been numerous. Our current connection is only bringing in the internet service; how do I get the live TV to operate. We have the standard comcast box for the digital transition you recently implemented. Thank you for your assistance.
You can still use a Comcast SD Cable box with your new Sony Bravia.
Run the coax from the Comcast Cable box, to the coax/antenna port on the back of the TV. Let the TV scan for channels (should really only find one, normally channel 3). Use your Cable Box remote to change channels.
You will not get HD image quality, just versions of of blown up/or stretched SD TV, but actually not that bad.
But, as other have said, if you can get hold of an HDMI box, the better. Also, you need to subscribe to HD TV from Comcast.
When all said and done, use your (now liberated) Coax/antenna port to pull down some true HD (and free) over the air broadcasts.
If you have a Smaprtphone (iOS or Android), also download SOny's excellent app which allows you to remotely control the TV and "everything" else that is connected via HDMI. Very neat!
Thanks for the info. Does Comcast provide the full HD Digital Set top box with HDMI connections? If so, how do I get one? The TV has HDTV with HDMI connections and I have HD service with you (Xfinity).
