From the menu select setup,
 then select tuning band, make sure that is set to AIR not CABLE, next select AUTO CHANNEL SEARCH. If any signals are present it should find them. Let me know what you find, I am also an expert in OTA over the air tv reception. Please rate this solution. lone99star

I hooked up my new Proscan TV to the antenna but it can't find any channels


You need to check the connection is tight from the antenna and also on the back of the tv. You may need to try another coaxial cable. Is your antenna powered, meaning does it have a power plug that needs to be plugged in? Is your tv an old crt television? You may need a converter box to be able to view digital channels. A signal booster may help you get more channels.

Your tv or antenna may be defective. You could try your antenna on another tv. If your other tv gets a signal, your tv's tuner could be bad. If the other tv goes not get a signal either your antenna could be bad. I hope this helps narrow down your problem.

WHEN I PLUG INTO ANTENNAE--I GET " NO SIGNAL"---BUT I KNOW THAT THERE IS A SIGNAL BECAUSE I GET A PERFECT PICTURE ON MY SONY COLOR TV? HOW CAN I GET THE OLEVIA TO RECOGNIZE THE ANTENNAE SIGNAL?


You'll need to use the Olevia remote and press the MENU or SETTINGS button. The choose the SETUP or MEMORIZE CHANNELS option. MEMORIZE CHANNELS may be in an ANTENNA screen.

When you memorize channels you'll need to set the option for Antenna or Cable TV then have it memorize channels.

The television will run through each channel looking for signal and memorize those it finds. Sometimes it finds a very weak signal and you'll need to manually remove some.

My airiel/antenna is plugged in i do the channel search and it doesnt find anything at all?? Help???!!!


Does your antenna require a power source? If so make sure it is plugged in. You can try to reposition your antenna to ensure it is receiving signal. Check with a site Like AntennaWeb org to make sure that you live close enough to the broadcasters to receive signal.

What do I need to correctly connect/setup my VEON 39" SR09110-B. I have plugged the power cord in and the antenna cord into the rv port on the back of the TV but the TV has no signal. Do I need to do


Your unit may need to know that it must read the antenna signals that are coming from the antenna. The unit might have a set-up feature in the TV's settings function for choosing either a cable (digital) or antenna (analog) signal.

NO SIGNAL


Check the antenna connections, re-plug the connections.
If this does not fix the problem. try a different antenna lead, also check the antenna.

26" ILO digital T.V . won't pick up digital signals w/digital antanae.\r\nusing air in setup


So called digital antennas are generally a gimmick. The important factor to receiving stations is the antenna position and strength relative to the incoming signal. (Digital signals are either enough for the tuner or you get "no signal".)

Look at antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to find out what stations are likely to be received in your area and the direction to rotate the antenna; plug your address in the search area. Antennaweb is very conservative in its channel list even though it assumes an external antenna. Tvfool gives a list of the channels you should get with various antennas (labelled by color). This is a standard label that will be on the antenna specs or box (at least on good antennas). Tall buildings and trees in the area can reduce the channels you receive.

Adding an amplifier may help you gain signal strength for borderline stations (or if you split the signal to several devices).

I hope this helps.

(My house has an external antenna with an amplifier/splitter. Antennaweb suggested that we'd only get the stations from ~10 miles away. We get those stations and the ones from ~30 miles away with the antenna rotated for the further stations.)

Can't get anything over antenna


Did you use an inside or outdoor antenna? An outdoor antenna rotated in the correct direction will give you the best chance of getting any signal. Look at antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the channels in your area, the direction in which the antenna must be pointed and the type of antenna you will need to get them. Antennaweb.org is very conservative in the channel listings even with the assumption of an external antenna. Do you have hills, trees or tall buildings between you and the various transmitters? That will block your signal strength - remember digital TV is an all-or-nothing signal.

I hope this helps.

(antennaweb indicates that my location will only get 2 channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With a properly oriented outdoor antenna and an splitter/amplifier, I actually get those + 3 from 30 miles away on several TVs without signal loss..)
