I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

I am not familiar with the Time Warner remote, but Tivo remotes require pressing "tv power" and the "Tivo" button at the same time to program them.
Maybe you are pressing one a little ahead of the other.

SOURCE: toshiba tv 32kv500b, when tryin
I suspect you are seeing the Main Menu for the source that you are currently using. Press the Source button (TV/AV on the TV itself) and make sure you are on TV source. The menu will have a set of icons if it is set for analog and a vertical list in digital. Select Setup (use the up/down arrows for digital and the left/right for analog - it's the first one in the list) and click OK. Then select Installation (third one in the list) and then press OK. Next select Automatic channel scan (first one again) and press OK. You will see a warning prompt, highlight Yes and click OK to scan for digital channels. When it is done, it will ask if you want to scan for analog channels.

I hope this helps.

First try moving your antenna around (see the sites listed below for the direction to point the antenna to get a signal). If the antenna has an amplifier, try unplugging that unit. (When an amplifier fails, no signal gets transmitted.) Similarly if you have several TVs sharing one antenna, remove the splitter and directly connect the antenna to this Toshiba to make sure that it isn't causing the problem.
You may be in an area where an iindoor antenna may not work for you. Tall buildings and trees can scatter the signal to the point where a digital tuner can't get enough signal to "read" the data. Again use the results from the sites listed below to check what stations are likely to be received in your area.
Different TVs have different tuner sensitivities. An amplifier may help bring in enough signal to get the channels. (Signal loss is inevitable. However, if the signal is sufficiently poor, an amplifier may give you more noise and won't help.)
There are two sources for a site specific list of channels: Antennaweb.org and tvfool.com . Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the list of channel that you should receive. (It lists two channels from one transmitter in my area.) Tvfool will indicate the channels that you should get with different antennas (indoor, outdoor, amplified signals).
A rare issue can be that the tuner in the TV has failed. The only way to check that is trying the TV with different antennas (or in different areas - one with high signal strength).
I hope this helps.
(ATSC (digital OTA signals) are either enough to read or not. You can't get the fuzzy signal of an edge of range analog signal.)

Tips for a great answer:

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.
• You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before
programming channels (-left-hand column).
• If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the
automatic channel programming process erases channels
that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.
• If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the
automatic channel programming process adds newly found
channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and
does NOT erase channels that were previously
programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna
source channel from the memory, you must manually delete
• To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel
memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the
• Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is
configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when
the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;
however, once channel programming is finished, you should
not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

TV or CABLE, depending on which you use.
If you use an antenna, choose TV.
If you use cable, choose CABLE.
4. Press "down arrow" button until the CH PROGRAM selection is highlighted.
5. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to start channel programming. The TV will automatically
cycle through all the TV or Cable channels (depending on which you
