DRC8335 not picking up channels when scanned

I'm trying to scan all of my stations over to the RCA unit, but not comes up.I've tried selecting cable and yes. I am hooked up to cable and going in to the RCA unit. It searches and scans for  channels, but none comeup after 20 minutes. I've checked the RF cables and the wall cable connection. Why is it not working??

    For the first five months my unit RCA DRC8335 received all locally available digital channels. A month ago it stopped receiving 8.1 and 8.2 even though those channels are still available and are received by my TV using the same atenna via a splitter. I changed nothing about my connection or unit to my knowledge.

    Connected to antenna and checked repeatedly. No channels available through scan. TV reception is very good through coaxial connections when by-passing this unit. RCA cable connections allow for viewing DVD/VCR and all setup functions just fine. It all seems to come down to the "TV Tuner" on this unit. The owner's manual only hints at "condensation" as a possible problem, but no mention of what problem it may cause.

Make sure you have tuner as input---if you are running through another unit as I am to get the signals to the tv--I have to select vidio1 as input to be able to see the screen. My guess is that input is not set to tuner.
Hope this works.

I have a hdmi rca tv, unhooked the digital cable box for awhile went to hook it back up and can't get any channels scanning picks up nothing what should I have the setting set to? Hdmi set to cable


If you have a cable box the channels are selected via the cable box remote and the TV is set to an HDMI video input. The specific input is identified where the HDMI cable connects from the box.

Use the video input remote to select the HDMI for the cable box.

Scanning is for identifing the over the air stations that use the coax input noted as antenna (ANT IN) on the back of the set.

Hope this helps?

Can't change channels stuck on 4 tried scanning it but it goes back to 4 won't change on the tv or a remote


When you run a scan the TV changes to every channel and tries to tune in a station. that is why it takes so long. If your TV is only finding channel 4, I would guess that is the only station strong enough for it to pick-up. You should check and / or replace your antenna and or antenna cable. Then re-scan the channels. with a better antenna, it should find more stations.
Most older Tube type TVs need a converter to pick-up digital TV, if you have a converter, make sure it is plugged in.

You should not be getting any stations without a digital tuner TV or a converter box.

The FCC site says this:

The FCC established September 1, 2015 as the date for the termination of all analog low-power television service. Since that date, analog television should no longer exist in the United States. Until that time, LPTV stations were allowed to continue to operate their analog facilities.

Get no Database on TV after a channel scan. Help.


A guess; maybe you are scanning Cable channels while on air? So, if you don't have cable TV conected, it won't pick any channel.

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.

I have a RCA LCD TV model no. RLC3708A and when hooking it up when I took it out of box, I got to


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

Not able to scan stations


I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!

Channel selection


What you need to do is take the remote, go into the menu, find channel scan and do a channel scan to find all the available stations available on this system. Make sure the TV set is in the cable mode and not antenna mode or you wont get any stations above channel 13.
