SOURCE: can't get the channels to enter into the channel list

A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

SOURCE: can't get all digital channels

There are several possibilities assuming you have an outdoor antenna with the amplification. You are too far from the transmitter or the station is still on a low power digital transmitter until the analog broadcasts end. Additionally, there may be buildings, hills or trees in the way. The first one is called the digital cliff - you either have enough signal for your tuner or you don't. Some stations may need to add transmitters to cover the secondary areas that could still receive the analog signal. The second possibility will either resolve on Feb 18 or June 12 or anywhere in between. (It will depend on your station and the Digital TV transistion delay bill. Some stations are changing frequencies with the transistion and can't go to full power until another analog station moves its frequency.) The last one can't be resolved.
If you have an indoor antenna, you can try moving it around to get better results. My household has an amplified outdoor antenna with a rotator to get the antenna to line up with the signal. We have two analog stations that give problems when we look for their digital signals. We hope the issue will resolve with the changeover since we have seen the signals on both stations improve when they wanted to broadcast football games.

SOURCE: Vizio 37L suddenly stopped getting all digital channels

I had the same problem with my 42" vizio. Was working fine for about a year and a half, then a month after all stations went digital, I couldn't see any digital channels and it wouldn't scan for digital signals
This is a strange go around, but it worked for me. . Tried unplugging, pushing power button for two minutes... did everything the forums suggest, with no resolve. But, here's what DID work for me. Trust me, it sounds strange, but it continues to work (and, yes... it's not a permanent fix... the channels still go out once in a while, but I can always get them back now)
Use your Vizio remote control. Turn your TV on. Press the "input" button until you get to "RGB", which is what you would connect a computer to. Make sure no computer is connected, or it's at least off if it is connected. When you get to RGB, you'll see a message that says "No Signal". After about 5 seconds, the TV will enter a sleep mode and seem as if it has turned off (orange Vizio logo). Once it completes it's little sleep cycle and "clicks" off, wait a few seconds and hit the input button again. It'll go to the next menu item. Keep clicking input until you're back on "TV", and VUALA! The channels are back! 
I accidentally figured this out when trying to troubleshoot, but I'm glad I did. Didn't want to dishout $250 to get it fixed. Let us know if it works for you too!

Unplug it for about an hour to let it reset itself and try again, if it still has problem then you will have to open it up or take it to the repair shop. The power supply module will have to be looked at first to make sure all the voltages are present. Right now the 5vdc standby power supply is working and may be partially function processor.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Have lost satellite coverage due to money restraints, How to connect antenna to tv.


Please provide the following information.

1. what country are you in
2. does your country have digital or analog air television stations.

if your country does not have analog television you may not have options for a clear signal, you need an antena outside the house if you do not have a clear line of sight to the tv transmitter for analog television.

Also it may be a good idea to do a channel search from within the television menue.

System multimedia software with Tv card


I have used a Tivo model 1 for years and love it. But when it came time for HDTV, I decided to try a "build your own" PVR using SageTV or Beyond TV. I have done so and, to make a long story short, I just bought a Tivo Series 3.
Problems with the Beyond TV and Sage TV approaches?
1) Tuner cards with drivers not compatible with running two cards together (Dvico).
2) Tuner cards that cannot accept cable cards and so limit you to OTA HDTV and analog cable channels. I now consider this THE major unresoled limitation in trying to build a PC version PVR to compete with a Tivo Series 3) Don't buy Tuner cards without a hardware encoder on analog channels. This causes excessive CPU utilization and can result in stuttering video when recording two analog channels and watching a HDTV channel. This with a dual core 4200+ghz cpu and this was better than two other MBs I tried. Note: Recently, ATI has introduced the ATI Theater 650 chipset based tuners which ARE reported to have a hardware encoder for analog TV channels. I would recommend this tuner as a starting point for any future PVR build efforts.
4) SageTv has lots of features for "geeks" but is missing lots of features.. Such as an easy way to tell the software to pick HDTV channels instead of non-HDTV channels that are presenting the same program.
5) BTV has a pretty good GUI and good remote controls. Still, it suffers from stuttering and pixelation when recording two analog programs while watching an HDTV program. This is really a hardware problem (3 above) but I was not able to overcome it at the time. I needed a PCI or PCIe HDTV+analog TV tuner which included a hardware encoder for the analog capture mode. BTV has about the worst technical support of any software company I have ever worked with. But the software works pretty good. Their refusal to give me a "baseline hardware configuration" that they KNEW would work with Beyond TV software and two HDTV tuners should have been a red flag that I was going to have problems.
6) I had to go through three video cards before I found one that would give me dual displays while playing back HDTV. Even so, none of the ATI or Nvida based video cards would allow operation of the TV set as the secondary display. This was a result of the huge CPU load generated when making the HDTV display the secondary display and the computer display the primary. I finally settled for a configuration where I used ONLY the TV display and made it the primary display.
So.. After spending three months of elapsed time and about two thousand dollars buying hardware and software to experiment with, I decided to give up and buy the $800 Tivo series 3 PVR with the $199 lifetime subscription transfer price. Expensive, but I spent considerably more (and a LOT of time!) trying to get a dual tuner HDTV alternative to work and .. I failed to come close to Tivo Series 3 features and performance. Until December 31, Tivo series 1 and 2 owners who have a "lifetime" update deal can transfer this deal to a series 3 for $199. This seems excessive considering that BeyondTV and SageTV give "free" TV Guide service "forever" as a part of their software purchase.. That was one of the attractions to these two software packages.
In summary.. A lot of people appear to get BTV and SageTV to operate acceptably in specific applications. A lot of other people have a multitude of problems with their configurations. I simply could not find a combination of hardware and software that would work "without video stuttering under some conditions" with dual HDTV/Analog tuners. The failure of both SnapStream (Beyond TV) and Sage TV to publish even ONE "baseline hardware configuration" that is guaranteed to work under all circumstances with dual tuners makes me very suspicious that such a configuration is unknown at this moment in time.

Chances are that you bought an HDTV ready set which required an additional element to be added into the set in order to get true HDTV channels. This means that you only have analog. just because the set says HDTV doesn't make it a true HDTV recorder. Does it say HDTV ready??
the differences are --what it has on the back of your set. There should be more input output accesses. not just 4 or 6
