First of all, digital/HD signals are broadcast at UHF frequencies. You need to know if you have an UHF antenna and, if you do, that it is pointed to the TV stations broadcasting HD.

Second, since most TV's have a setup mode that automatically searches for channels that are able to be received, go to that "Setup" menu on your TV and start the auto search. It will list both analog and digital stations. Note that the analog channel may be, for instance, Channel 39 but the digital channel will be Channel 39-1. Tune to the "dash 1" channel.

What can I hook up to this tv to get basic channels. Not cable?


Hi,

Depending on your location and distance from the available broadcast outlets, you may be able to receive basic commercial broadcast channels using a simple inside or outside ad-on antenna, available from most electronic retail stores or on line vendors such as Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, etc.

The tv is showing a double image and I cannot get the color right! Model number 50v500


Hello,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} You need to upgrade to the high definition cable box---but first try this. Hook the cable from the wall directly to the tv and autoprogram it. If Comcast is anything like charter they transmit the local Hd channels in a format that digital tuner will pick them up. Just channel up/down and check out the channels with -1 and -2's behind them. Depending on where you are----your local channels will usually show up wherever they normally do but with a -1 behind it.

EX: local Fox channel on 47---autoprogram and check 47-1

If this is enough HD for you then get a two way spitter and hook your box back up and keep using the RCA (composite) cables for the best it can produce.

hope this will help..

No Non-Hd sound


Best Buy owns some of the brands it sells. Best Buy currently has five private labels which include Insignia, Dynex, Init, Geek Squad, and Rocketfish. Insignia focuses on electronic equipment, including televisions, monitors, car stereos, home theater systems, and portable video and audio players.

The Best Buy televisions are made with substandard components. They are not produced with the same standard the orginal manufacture items.

With the factor of substandard pieces and flash/firmware glitches; it sound like you have a software problem.

I would contact the manufacture ASAP and have a field tech come by to update your television.

No Non-Hd sound


I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.

My new tv only gets some channels and not others


Have you tried an amplified antenna? It's basically a regular antenna but includes an amplifier to help bring in weak stations. An out door antenna may also help. I live about 3 miles from a TV station and can't pick them up due to the insanely old apartment I live in.

Channel changing by itself.


I will tell you that westinghouse is the worst company among other brands. If you have warranty, return it and buy a sony or panasonic with a little extra money. It will help you later from buying another TV that is also as crappy as westinghouse's.
