SOURCE: cannot keep all channels on tv

When you say you "lose" channels, you probably mean there's no signal there anymore but they are still in the channel memory. This is normal if you have a rotatable antenna. You need to mark the rotator (or just keep a chart nearby) with the heading for each channel.

If you mean you're losing channels from memory when rescanning after turning the antenna, the only solution I can offer is to record the channels found (and their signal levels) after scanning a direction. Then change directions and rescan. See what new channels have been found, what have been lost, or how signal level has changed on common channels. Then you can manually add whatever you need, and you'll know what direction is best for each. It's tedious, but you should only need to do it once.

SOURCE: WHY MUST I RESCAN ALL THE TIME?

You may have several problems. If you are using a indoor antenna, upgrade to a outdoor antenna. The indoor antenna has to be adjusted every time you change a channel. If you plan to sit in a chair and never move when watching tv, you may be able to pick up a channel or two. Get a UHF/VHF antenna from a home improvement store. The big box electronic stores are selling a digital antenna. There is no such thing. The antenna doesn't know if the signal is digital or analog, it just picks up uhf and vhf signals. The other problem could be that the box is bad if it is not saving the scan. I would check the antenna first from what you said though.

Why will my new tv not pick up any channels when using the auto channel search


It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)

Good Afternoon, I have no cable where i live now, but i have a analog converter box, how do i install it to my tv to get local channels?


you install the cable wire into the box or antena into the box then the cable or rca cables into the tv. set the tv input to the right input (usually channel 2 or 3 for a cable) or input one for the rca cables then you need to hit the scan option on your converter box to scan for the channels and the tv to scan for the channels. please let me know if this works

Tv as of sun night says no signal....converter box was working


Re scan your channels. Analog is gone and alot of channels have moved. Just re-run the setup on your converter and it should be fine. The channel numbers may change, but the programming hasn't. Hope this helps
