I would have thought you could just select a different source from the remote. Can't you do that? Usually press the source button a few times to go through the different options on the screen.Need to select the analogue tv through the antenna or else digital tv through the set top box I guess so you would need to select the right source where the box is connected.. Did you do the initial set up and let it auto tune all the analogue channels when you first plugged it in. I found this in the online manual but the preset button is one of the 3 menu items you can't select so you may not be able to follow this instruction any way.---------------------------------------------------5.Air/Cable selection You can select the signal receiving method according to the following steps:1) Press the MENU button to enter the main menu.2) Press the button to select the itemPRESET, and press the button to enterPRESET menu.3) Press the button to select the item tv source.4) Press the button to change the item among air, catv s, catv h and cath i.6.Channel search------------------------------------------------have you checked if the parental lock is on or if some of the channels are locked out from the initial channel set up screen? Saw someone else make a comment that they got the tv new and it had a vchip blocked when they first got it out of the box and lots of channels were locked off and took him 2 hours to figure out how to unlock it from the menu. Didn't say how he did it unfortunately. This is the manual if you don;t have one already any ways.
Are you using converter box or straight tv? If on tv, go to menu, find "autoprogram" option and select it. It will scan all available channels. If you are using the box, check to see if box has same autoprogram option.
Make sure tv and box is set to AIR and that is NOT set to CATV
I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.
Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.
