look in the setup menu of the new TV. You need to set it to receive NTSC, non digital standard, the old standard.
If it does not have the option, you need a cable box.
The problem being that the new TV is receiving the new standard, the cable company is providing the old standard. Your old TV received the old standard.
OR look in the setup menu again. Does it have a select switch for antenna input, cable input? You might be set to the wrong input.
