Cable versus antenna setting

Hi - just bought a new flat screen TV. Somehow, the setting was set at antenna instead of cable. I cannot find how to bring the setting back to cable. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I would go into your menu and go to where it says setup. Under that option is the one for channel setup. Press your enter button on that one and it will pop up a new menu. The first option under that menu should be air/cable. Make sure you set that to the cable option and just to be sure you get all of your channels i would run a new channel search as well.

We have a prizmo tv and I want to get just local channels. bought a antenna. then what?


You need to look for the settings for the input type. It is usually cable or antenna (digital). Switch to antenna.
Then you need to look for 'auto find' channels, so it can scan to locate and set the channels in your area.

Your TV must have an internal digital TV tuner (ATSC) in order to get new digital broadcasts.

How do i cahange my reception From analog to digital?


The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.
