If your Vizio TV has a built-in HD converter, 16 channels is what you can expect. If the channels are identified with decimals such as 10.1, 10.2, etc. they are HD. The cable connection you refer to must be connected to an antenna, otherwise you would have a cable box and a monthly bill from some cable company

SOURCE: I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''

do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

SOURCE: Digital channels freeze

I also had this channel 5-1 freezing problem and spoke with Vizio support a few times. They thought the problem was the SSID code from the local CBS station and said they would try talking with them. I am not certain if they did this or not, but, as of mid December, my Vizio no longer has this problem.

SOURCE: lower channels not working or fuzzy on LG 50PC1DRA

I hope you have a VCR! I want you to do a brief 10 minute recording of each of the stations in question then play them back on the tv using the video input jack instead of ch 3 or 4. If you have the same problem then you have just recorded the cable signal coming into your home and therefor is the cable company's responsibility to repair. Have them come out and demonstrate the tape to them. You will enjoy the look on his or her face. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate.
By the way, I spent a lot of summers at my Aunts home in St.Catherine's as a kid. Great times.

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!

SOURCE: Sudden no signal on digital channels on a Vizio VX37L

That may not be correct. You would not lose all your digital channels. Vizio has an un-addressed problem with losing digital stations. Multiple threads are posted due to this problem, which is why I am on this site. I have lost all digital stations on CATV connection. The Toshiba set in the next room is getting over 150 DTV channels, the Vizio, only analog. Zero Digital.

Try using the TV's on-screen menu to manually add the channels or run another auto-scan. If done manually and the TV has no reception on these channels, the best you can do is to purchase a digital antenna which will provide more channels to a poor built-in antenna.

I can not get channels on my vizio hdtv. i have a cable cored hooked up to the tv and i can not get the channels to come on the tv screen. it keeps saying "No Signal!"


You will need to make sure that your cable is connected to the correct input (if more than one) and then enter the Menu and look for a "set up" screen and select "Scan for Digital Channels".

After the scan the TV should be fine.

CHANGE CHANNELS WITH THE CONTROL


Run a channel scan on the DTV and/or TV input depending on what one your not getting channels on. This will solve your issue.

Change the input on the unit to the DTV or TV input. Press the menu button on the remote. Navigate to the tuner DTV or TV tuner setup menu. Go down to auto search using the down arrow. go right when with auto search selected. This may take a few minutes but you should have all the channels back after the scan.
