Re: tuning in the tv
Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air
frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for
tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast)
and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!

If you have another TV fed from the same antenna, I assume you have a splitter/distribution amplifier because you know you cannot just join two cables together don't you?
It is more than likely the splitter/amplifier, cable or connections rather than the TV but to make sure you must move the TV in the other room and try it on the suspect cable before condemning the TV.
Signal problems are usually due to water ingress and this could have happened on just one cable.
Failing that, the TV input could have failed. It is not common but does happen now and then.
if you have a problem getting digital channels (uk) find local channel number digital uk can help enter tuning menu go to manuial tune on tv or digi box. it will ask for channel number start with highest number pess ok or search repeat for each channel number normal 4or 5 depends on aera if still not getting all channels put aerial lead which come for aerial into tv bypassing any equipment such as vcr/dvd recorder then start again if still not all channels may need aerial upgrade .if yo get all channels connect vcr/dvd if some channnels disappear need to reset RF out on vcr/dvd remove aerial .connect vcr/dvd via scart reset RF out on vcr/dvd this can be found in vcr/dvd set up menu reconnect all leads should now work ok
Note do not set RF out to any digi channel numer
hey, when connect any aerial in the back of the TV make sure you have a look for the name of the connection you use ( Skart,ext1,ext2,usb,hdmi1, hdmi2 etc.) so you can do a search on that extension. if you connect something on Hdmi1 and search on hdmi2 you won't find anything. you have to search on Hdmi1. PS: good luck.
hi your signal could be to strong, on the aerial cable the thin brad rap 4 strands around the center solid pin then retune in auto, if this does not work you may to manual tune it in, or get someone to check your aerial and you could try a firmware update on your tv hope it helps
