Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
Auto search does not start picking up channels until 34/36 percent complete and then it completely misses all lower numbered channels. I can not get any local programing. I have a direct connection of coax cable coming from a splitter that has the cable companies cable attached to the "in" port of the splitter. This did work good and I was able to pick-up all of the local channels until we had a power outage a few days back, ever since then I've only been able to recv'd the higher numbered channels. I've tried everything I can think of to resolve this short of calling an home theater expert or the cable man! I've un-pluged the T.V., Reconnected the cable, tried "auto-search" a dozen times! What do I need to do? Got any helpful suggestions?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
