Some flat screen tv's have two inputs, one for digital and one for analog reception. If your local public television station is analog, then you'll need a signal input on the analog input.
You might try temporarily moving the input from the digital to the analog then doing a new channel scan to see if this picks up the PBS station. You'll have to rescan again, when you move your antenna lead in back to digital.

The wifi connection will allow you to access content via the Vizio Internet Apps (Netflix for example) but not tv broadcasts.
Your tv can access tv broadcasts (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC) over the air but w/o an external antenna the signal and therefore the quality will probably be weak.
To access cable/direct tv/fios content you will need to connect the tv via a cable.

Do I need a digtal converter box to pick up local stations via antenna?


Some local broadcasting will still be in analog but this is just jor simple programming such as college stations. To get local programming such as NBC,ABC,CBS etc. you will need to get a converter since the government has mandated all broadcast be in digital to free up air space.

Note that it may be a case by case basis for some smaller areas.

This tv is not connected to cable or dish, but has an interior antenna. up to about 2 months ago, we could get network channels (abc, nbc,cbs) which is all we wanted. Suddenly CBS dropped out, says "no...


How far away is the CBS station? Are there any obstacles that would block the signal (say new construction)?

What channels do antennaweb.org or tvfool.com suggest you will get from your location? (Antennaweb is more conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna.) Do you need to rotate your antenna to get one transmitter or the other? Indoor antennas are more likely to get interference and direction issues.

You may want to restore your TV to the default and then rescan the channels. (This may or may not help. It usually helps more with scrambled information than lost channels.)

I hope this helps.

(good luck. I've had issues with my CBS and Fox affiliates (sharing a transmitter location). At first it was clearly my TV and the reset helped. Now I have no clue as to the cause - the external TV antenna gives a strong signal on the other TV. The problem TV says the signal is bad and this is the closest transmitter and antennaweb says I should get it easily. Even pointing the antenna straight at the transmitter doesn't help.)

I can't see NBC with the digital conveter box


Is it only NBC? Or are the other over air channels (ABC, CBS, Fox) also not seen?

Are you going through a splitter with the incoming signal? if so, make sure the splitter frequency range is at least 5 to 1000 Mhz.

You should see the 'temporary lost signal' wording on the channel. Check all cable connections to make sure the cable to connector plug are tight and not loose.

Cannot get local channels back after dropping cable.


Are you positive that your city has not done the Digital Conversion? Some Cities are doing it early before the February deadline. Also make sure you are tuning in to the correct channels. Meaning that if on your Cable Provider ABC was on Channel 3 that does not mean that ABC with still be on Channel 3 after you have your Cable turned off. Most of the Time the Local Stations Tag will let you know what channel its on. It will be something like "KWAS ABC 27" So on your TV you would Tune it to channel 27 to get ABC and the same fore NBC , FOX, CBS , etc...
I hope this helps Take Care =)

Don't get ABC or NBC local channels anymore


ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.

Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.

When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.
