There are no analog channels anymore as far as I know, if you mean the channels that are local and provide an off the air signals, you need to connect an antenna for off the air signals, it may be possible that at your father's place the off the air signal was strong enough to receive them. Try going in to the menu signal type select "Air" to see if that makes a difference, of-course you will lose the cable channels until switch back to "Cable" .Hope this helps, KA
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.
Cindy Wells (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.)
If you are in Nothern Ireland you will need a UHF antenna, and Republic Ireland you will need VHF and UHF antenna to recieve off the air signals.
Connect the antenna to the back of the TV. Turn the TV on, select "menu" button on your remote and slect TV from TV/Cable menu press enter, go to main menu and select channel set up menu and select auto channel button and when finished press menu button, check your user manual for details.
first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.
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 experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:
Channel 10 analog
Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.
