Sony Wega does not see all the digital channels

Now that television is broadcasting in digital, I ran the autoscan on my Sony Wega to scan for all the digital channels. Unfortunaley, it did not receive all the digital channels. Out of 90 channels that it scanned, it only received 12 in digital. What do I need to do so that I can get all the digital channels?

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.

Why is there no reception after running autoscan?


Ensure your tv is in the mode of broadcast in you area...if local broadcasting is in digital ensure the tv is set to digital. Ensure that the aerial/antenna is fully working and correctly connected. You can check this by attaching another tv to it.
Try another autotune after the above has been carried out.
If it does not work try a reset and another retune, ...using your owner's documentation ensure that the setup is followed as specified.
Disconnect all other peripherals from the tv during this procedure.
If the worst has happened the tuner may need to be corrected. It does not sound as though there is anything makorly wrong.....hopefully


GOOD LUCK

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

When doing an autoscan, we get channels that are .1, .5 etc. such as tbs is not channel 64, it is 63.5. How do we get the channels in the whole number line up?


Hello:
The TV channels that are found with decimal points are digital sub-channels. Broadcasters can include sub-channels of additional programming without requiring additional channels. Unless it is also broadcast on a "whole-number" channel, there is no way to change the number in your lineup.

My set top box will no longer pick up certain channels such as itv and channel 4 stations !!


My set top box has setup menu, channels, autoscan to scan for channels. They changed some of the channels here after the original switch to digital, and a fresh autoscan was needed to again find the channels that moved. See if your box has autoscan for channels, and do it.
