What does it mean when your cable box says Hunt?

In this case, the "HUNT" message typically means that the box is searching for a signal - you can usually get rid of this message by power cycling the box. To do that you can unplug the power for 30 seconds or so.

What does Alt mean on my cable box?

When your Time Warner cable box boots up, it displays various messages on the front of the box. While it's trying to detect a signal coming from the cable input, the box displays Alt, which means "wait." Check your connections, reboot your cable box and then call Time Warner support if you can't resolve the problem.
