Locking digital channels

I have a Sony Bravia, KLD-40S4100 lcd tv. I have a 12 foot antenna and rotor on the roof. What my problem is when I scan in one direction I get my digital channels for that direction. Now when I turn the rotor and scan in a different direction I lose my digital channels I had in the first scan . How can I lock them in to stay no matter how many digital channels scan I do.

UNFORTUNATELY THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL GET BOTH IS WITH A SECOND ANTENNA. IF THE SET DOES NOT SEE THE SIGNAL IT DOES NOT LOCK IT INTO MEMORY.

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected


Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

My Sony KDL-52xbr4 was working fine until I did a re-scan of the digital channels. After the re-scan the TV finds no digital channels. All other TVs hooked to the same antenna work fine. The sony scans up...


Hi check to make sure the antenna is connected correctly. try tunning the channels manually and if they come up you can save them one at a time. Also try moving the antenna to a different location. make sure the TV is set to scan on the same input that you are connecting the antenna. If all that fails ou might have a defective tuner board.

Sony Bravia does not see my digital channels


Hi buck lite,
Your cable company is telling the truth, you have digital cable. When auto scanned for digital channels the tv is lookig for OTR(over the air) signals. These are broadcast signals you will need an antenna to receive. Depending where you are and the type of antenna you use you probably could pick up some digital channels. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Different channels have different aspect ratios on digital cable. Go in your book that came with set and find changing aspect ratio...or call 4.3 16.9....or zoom.....full....streach...etc. Also look on your remote control. There may be a button to change that also. Simple problem. The hardest thing with these new sets is learning how to operate them properly. Read your book. Put it in the bathroom. You'll have alot of time to learn about your set if you do that..I'm serious. This new stuff has so many things it can do, it's crazy!! And you thought setting the time on the vcr was hard!!!! Good luck and let me know if you need more help.
