It sounds like the TV justs has a insufficient internal antenna system. If you can put an external antenna on this sytem do so just to test it.

I just purchased an indoor antenna for to view local stations. Can i use an indoor antenna for my olevia 232-t11 lcd-hdtv? If I can, what steps do I need to follow?

Yes you can use an indoor antenna. Just make sure it is an HD antenna to get the digital channels clearly. You will have to do a scan to pick up local channels. In the TV menu, it will ask you if you want to scan for "cable" channels or "antenna" channels. You want to choose antenna.

I have the same problem. Changing the antenna connection may help as will changing antennas/antenna position. Try to do a channel search in good weather.

I am moving tomorrow and won't be able to afford cable or satellite for awhile. I have a newer model Sanyo tv. Will I need a converter box or can I hook an antenna directly into the tv to pick u

If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

I can't get all the antenna channels

I do not know if your in the USA or a international country or what have you. But part of the reason why older tv's still get a RF signal is because of there older tuner inside. Now I know the USA went digital last year and in saying that this could be you problem but lets not put the horse in frount of the wagon here. You might want a try a better antenna first to see if the inporves things. But most tv's use UHF/VHF/IRC/HRC and the older ones just use UHF/VHF and only can pick up channnels with those tech. But your newer ones block out low frequencies UHF/VHF is its harder to get a signal. I would say try a better antenna or you might bne in a digtial area where you need a little converter box.


please be considerate and rate with the thumbs to your top right before you close the window, alos if you will leave me some feedback.

Just got an antenna to pick up local HDTV channels. I scan the channels and none are found. does it matter if I connect to "Ant1" or "Ant2"? neither seem to work. Thanks.

According to the user's manual on page 16, press Menu and open the Setup menu. Highlight Installation and press Enter. Open the Terrestrial menu and highlight Input Configuration. Select the ANT1 or ANT2 (whichever the antenna is connected to) and select input source Antenna [not cable]. Highlight Done and press enter. Now rescan your channels. If you still get nothing, try relocating your antenna to a better place. Digital TV is highly dependent on line of site signals. So if you are in a mountainous region or surrounded by a lot of high rise buildings, you may not receive a good enough signal to register channels on your TV.

NO CATV working on Curtis RT700

Yes if the unit is capable of picking up cable, there is a channel setup menu in the main menu. You half to switch it over to the cable mode. it should be in the owners manual. Good Luck
