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 won't the cable channels scan

Your TV will not get digital channels if you do not program the digital stations to your TV. You can program the digital channels by running a digital channel scan. The entire process is completed from your remote control and does not require any tools. This task only takes a couple of minutes to complete, and then you will be able to enjoy digital channels on your TV

I lost my cable channels and it is only finding three analog channels when I do the channel scan.

Make sure that you are scanning DIGITAL channels. If you are, then unplug the unit and re-plug it to cause re-boot. After re-start, select scan DIGITAL channels.

TV displays "no signal" with every input type we try. The only thing that works is the DVD. I even tryed it on a cable cord that was working from another TV

hello are you using a digital antenna, cable or satelite reception? you need to run your "set up" and scan for channels either automatically scan or manual scan, recomend a auto scan for all channels both digital and anolog, these tv will scan and save or store the channels but you need to run a channel scan first,
(even if your using a cable box or sat box)
back when we had the older anolog sets you could just plug it in and watch but with these new digital circuts need to scan and store the channels in before you can watch the broadcasts,, try that let me know what happens. hope this helps

LCD 32 inch Auto Scan issue

I have experienced exactly the same issue on two Westinghouse sets. Try turning the set off when it reaches 83%. When I turn mine off and back on, it has saved the channels -- at least the ones it had found before it got hung up.
