HDMI input works ok. Hooked up external antenna. Did channel scan. It will only scan for analog channels. Has analog raster on screen. It has no information on menu page for digital channel scan.


do you have the air option in the scan menu see
http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/sanyo/dp42841.html
page 9 important fact cable digital gets wiped by air digital channels

You may be able to get around this via a digital hd tv decoder box and then have it on a hdmi input on the TV as a backup to the cable if you can't have both cable digital channels stored and aerial digital channels stored

Using a digital antenna to channel scan for broadcasted channels


It is no different that channel scanning for cable or analog over-the-air channels. You simply ensure that you have selected the digital tuner of the set prior to scanning. Some older flat panel sets do not have integrated digital tuners. A digital antenna alone will not allow these sets to receive digital broadcast channels. A converter box is needed to convert the digital broadcast signals to analog for the tuner in the set. Also, sets that do not have digital tuners may not support the resolution rate of digital TV broadcasts. Most digital HD broadcasts are 720p and a few are 1080p.

How do I program my RCA LED48G45RQ HDMI to digital channels


Several things to check. First go in the menu where u are doing the channel scan and see if there is a separate line that says digital and if so select it so it can add those channels. Next look also on the remote and see if there is a button that says ANT or Input and press it to see if selects the digital side. Next see how u are hooking up the set from either cable, SAT, Antenna, etc, and are u going thru the antenna connection/the screw on cable input. Cause if going thru hdmi or any other input will not allow u to scan channels. Next the tv may not have a digital tuner in which some new sets don't, look in owners manual and read on channel programming and it should tell u. Maybe something here will help.

Why won't the cable channels scan


Your TV will not get digital channels if you do not program the digital stations to your TV. You can program the digital channels by running a digital channel scan. The entire process is completed from your remote control and does not require any tools. This task only takes a couple of minutes to complete, and then you will be able to enjoy digital channels on your TV

Will not find digital tv stations


Hi,

I'll be glad to assist you in locating the digital channels in the TV.
Make sure that the Cable or Antenna Input is connected to the TV. The Cable and Antenna input can be connected to the VHF/UHF Input on the TV. The TV can search for the channels only if the VHF/UHF/CABLE input is connected to the TV. If you're connecting the Cable box or the Satellite Receiver to the Video or HDMI inputs on the TV, then it is not require to auto program the TV. Here, the auto program may be required in the cable box.
To Auto Program the TV, select the Manual Channel Search option from the Menu option and then select the CABLE, AIR or Digital Add-On option depends on the connection. The Digital Add-On option adds any new digital channels that are found to the Channel Scan Database.
This should resolve the issue. Please feel free to get back to us for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.
