What should I do if I am not getting HD?:

General Tips:

  • If your services include HD, connect your TV and cable box with HDMI or component cabling.
  • If your services do not include HD, you won’t get HD channels - even if you have an HD cable box. If you don't have an HD box but are thinking about adding it to your plan, review TV services available in your area.

Please try each of the following steps:

1. Verify Connections

Are all connections secured and have you checked that the other end of the cable is securely plugged in?

Are you using the proper connectors and color coding? If you are using a cable set-top box, the cable coming from wall should be connected to the "IN" jack on the cable box.

If you're not using a cable box, the cable coming from the wall should be connected to the "IN" jack on the VCR, DVD player or directly to the TV.

2. Check the TV

Is the proper input selected for HD?  (i.e., component, HDMI, DVI)

Confirm you are tuned to an HD channel, and verify the program you are watching is broadcasted in HD by visiting the program’s website.

3. Check the Cable Box

Is the cable box power on?

4. Reboot the Cable Box 

  1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the cable box.
  2. Wait 30 seconds.
  3. Plug the power cord back into the back of the cable box. The cable box will reboot automatically; it should take no more than 20 minutes.
  4. Wait for the time or channel to reappear on front of the cable box.
  5. Wait 3 minutes to allow the services to reset.
  6. Turn on the TV.

Note: If this happens often, you might have a signal issue. If so, please Contact Us.

5. Still No Quality Picture?

Automated phone self help is available to help diagnose your cable TV problem, and send a signal to your cable box to fix the problem.  If so, please Contact Us.

If phone self help does not resolve your cable TV problem, let the customer support representative know:

  • You went through the online troubleshooting
  • Your TV is on and working properly
  • Your cable box is on
  • Your connection and inputs are correct
  • You completed phone self help
