I have a toshiba 42HL196 tv and i am trying to connect it to an external antenna. I cant find a channel scan option in the setup menu. The menu on my tv is not the same as the toshiba video.


First check the current source. Press the Input button on the TV (second from the left) or on the remote (below 9) until the correct Antenna input (Ant 1) is selected. Make sure that the antenna is connected to Ant 1 (the RF connection closest to the back HDMI ports). You only use Ant 2 if you have a coaxial (RF) cable connection. Then press Menu and then try the Setup menu again. You should be able to access the Installation menu and Terrestrial sub-menu now. Change the Input Configuration for Ant 1 to Antenna before attempting to Program Channels.

If this doesn't work, try resetting the TV to the factory settings. You'll have to access the Menu, go to the Installation sub-menu and then select the System Status and then System Information. Select Factory Defaults and enter the PIN. See the manual for the default PIN if you haven't changed it. Then confirm the reset. The manual is available from the product support page: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2841536 . The direct link to the manual is http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su2846615/42hl196_om_e.pdf . See page 29 for the PIN. Then try accessing the Terrestrial menu and scanning for channels.

I hope this helps.

What does the message 'Terrestrial antenna is short-circuited' mean?


It means that 'Antenna Power' in the Installation menu is switched on when it should be off. This is only required when sending power to a mast-head amplifier.

How do you connect the antenna and get channels to work?


First make sure that your Input is TV. Use the Input button on the remote (to the right of 0) or on the side of the TV (lowest button). To watch OTA channels, after connecting the appropriate antenna for your location with a coaxial cable to your Antenna In port, press Menu then use the arrows to select the Setup submenu. Press Enter to access the submenu and select Installation. Then select Terrestrial and then Input Configuration. Here select Antenna as your input. Press Enter to save. Then scan for channels by returning to the Terrestrial sub menu and select Channel Program to scan all available channels.

Since digital signals are either sufficient for your tuner to interpret or give No Signal, you need to select your antenna and point it with care. Go to anntennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get information on the stations that you should be able to get in your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but still gives a conservative list of available stations. TVfool gives stations depending on the color code of the antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplified) and their directions. If you are sharing the antenna signal with multiple TVs, you may need an amplified splitter. (If you do have an amplifier, you may want to test removing it from the line and directly connecting the 37HL17 to the antenna. When amplifiers get damaged they can turn into signal filters which block the signal completely.)

If you have the correct antenna, check if another TV receives the stations. If so, you may have a bad tuner on the TV. (Some TVs have better tuners than others and pick up the stations even with lower signal strength.)

I hope this helps.

(I use an outdoor antenna and antennaweb indicates that I should only get the stations from 10 miles away. I actually get those from 30 miles away as well. When I set up a neighbor's TVs with indoor antennas, one only gets the stations 10 miles away and the other gets the stations that are 30 miles away. The two antennas couldn't be rotated to the same direction.)

Try configuring your antenna input. Menu, Installation, Terrestrial, Input Config select your antenna 1 or 2 and > arrow over to select cable. Next auto program: under Terrestrial, Channel Program...this take some time.

Hi William

You TV is able to receive Free to air Terrestrial Analog broadcasts by just connecting the antenna. However if you wish to receive Digital Terrestrial broadcasts (DVB), you need to obtain a digital receiver for Terrestrial Digital Broadcasts. It can be easily connected to your TV.

On any tv, first you must have two feeds coming in. That means either your tv must have two video cards, or your cable/antenna box must have two in order to se PIP. From there is a peace of cake... you push one button on your remote control and ....voila. Most tv's will have two video cards, one tor terrestrial antenna and one or more for cable/dish,.
