Just does to show you why you should never buy a WIERD BIG SCREEN !!! Sorry Ben I couldn't resist. That is very odd indeed, perhaps an issue with the tuner?

Check antenna switch - could be you were not on the cable feed, receiving a broadcast signal instead?
Theory number 2: RPTV tuner wasn't set up for your cable feed which might be off enough versus previous owner?
Theory Number 3: bad wiring.
Hmmm...I have run the auto channel selection and it scanned through all the channels and didn't turn up the missing content, just confirmed what I found punching in channel numbers. I was definitely on the cable feed. Perhaps the tuner isn't wired or working properly.
Tonight a "tech" from our cable company is dropping in to analyze the situation and try to set things straight. I'll be very surprised if he or she does anything more than run the auto setup the same way I did.
Next, I'll have to drop in on a sony big-screen store, and try to find a salesperson or technician under the age of 25 who might give me an opinion...the kids seem to know all!
Thanks for your help, Ben
