Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Installed outside antenna and scanned digital channels for accessibility. Acquired Ch 67-1, 67-2, and 67-3 (in Morehead KY) in addition to others. When I browse the channels I get hung up (cannot change channels) on one of the 67-x channels and must unplug the TV and wait for it to reset to continue browsing. Only happens when I hit on of the 67-x channels. Never had access to the 67-x channels before. Hitachi 57XWX20B. When I turn off those channels using the channel manager, everything works fine.
Make sure you have the tuner set for digital channels only. then redo the channel search.

Do you have the tuner locked out for use of HDMI input only?
Most of the time when a selection is not able to be hi-lited it is
because a feature that is activated locks out other selections.
Hope this helps,

Unfortunately, you need a set-top box. The Hitachi 65F59 has an ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog) tuner. It doesn't have a clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable) tuner.
There are a few DVR set-top boxes with QAM tuners that you can buy separately. (You will need to make sure a given model is compatible with your service. FIOS uses a different option on the Cable Card than other providers.) Alternatively, you can get a cable box from your company.
Retrevo has the manual for this Hitachi TV here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-65F59-TVs-manual/id/371ci977/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.
If you want OTA HD, you will need to determine the correct antenna for your area and the direction to the transmitters. (External antennas pick up more stations. In some areas amplification may be needed to get a good signal.) See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for searches on the appropriate antenna to get a signal and where to point the antenna. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the received channel list. You would need to set the TV signal input to Air and rescan for channels if you choose to go with the OTA signal.
I wish that I had better news for you.
