Check your manual to see if it has 2 tuners, digital and analog. If it doesn't have a digital tuner, you will need a converter box.

How do I get back my local channels on my Vizio by rabbit ears


Make sure that you have the TV tuner set up to receive ATSC (digital) signals via "Off Air" or "Antenna". Having it set to the "Cable Ready" mode will only get you Ch 2 - 13. These settings are usually available in set up and may even allow the TV to scan for available channels, etc.

Wont find channels on auto channel search


Ensure that you have a good connection to your antenna/cable/satellite, and that you have selected the proper signal type in your TV menu.

If you are using a cable box or satellite, you might need to search for an analog signal on channel 3 or 4. If your cable/satellite box outputs an HDTV signal, then search the digital channels. If you are using an antenna, search for digital channels and set it the TV to Air in the Channel menu.

No signal stuck on channel 2 with black screen. Model KDL37M3000


Are you connected to a cable or sat box, Are you connected thru antenna input on tv or a/v input. If connect to box thru antenna jack of tv do channel search to pick up ch 3 if box is set to that. If connected to outside antenna still do channel searsh but be sure tv is set to antenna. If connected via av or hdmi the cable or sat box is bad.

I need to know how can connect my surround sound to my vizio t.v ?


Depending on your model of Vizio, most have a fiber optic (Tos-Link) out. You just need to connect a fiber optic cable from the optical out to your receivers optical in. Now the optical out on the TV is really only used for sound that the TV is outputting, so everything coming from that port is going to be stereo except from over the air brodcasts (Antenna) that the tv is decoding on its own (you don't have an external cable box) Your best bet for sound quality would be to plug all devices (cable box, game systems, blu-ray player) into your receiver directly (Audio and Vidoe if supports) so all audio video is going through that, and you only have one video cable coming up to your TV. Going that route will keep you from having to change sources on the TV when tryign to switch to a different device.

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.
