Re: channel auto scan

I would assume that message is coming from your TVs tuner, and that function should be part of your TVs menu.  Note:  You would only be doing that if you have the Comcast cable plugged directly into your TV (not going through a Comcast box).

Re: channel auto scan

Tore my hair out with this one.  Chatted with a tech who was very patient etc.  and finally read this forum.  I found the remote that came with the TV, clicked the HDMI button and Voila!  the picture returned.  I don't think the fix was a real lesson for everyone.  My guess is that something got tampered with and the HDMI just reset the Cable box.     Thanks to the forum guy.  You pointed me in a new - and correct - direction.
