Digital air signals are weak and fussy. They are easily lost by having trees or large buildings in the way too.
The best thing to do is install a long range roof top antenna and re program the set. Be sure to aim the antenna correctly. if you cannot use a roof top antenna you can try the indoor digital antennas,but less likely to work consistently

Odd. That really does sound like a reception issue, ie your signal isn't as strong as the TV needs. You may be able to boost it with a standalone digital antenna (the digital tuner in the unit isn't the best) but as has been mentioned, a separate rooftop antenna or even a descrambler would be more helpful.

This is a newer TV. It doesn't have an analog tuner. You will have to buy the analog to digital converter box and re-scan your channels, or switch to a digital cable/dish provider.

My VCR not recording after the switch to digital tv signal


The answer to this question can get a little complicated. Lets tackle it in two parts. First the last part; the part about picking up channels as decimals. With analog TV transmission, it took the full television broadcast channel to transmit one standard definition TV program. The newer digital transmission system uses some advanced video compression and audio compression technology to reduce the data needed to transmit the pictures and sound which allows the same bandwidth to deliver either High Definition Television programming or MULTIPLE channels of Standard Definition programs. So in your example above, you use to watch one channel of programming on TV channel 4, but now the TV station can broadcast multiple channels of programming on channel 4, sot they delineate the programs with a decimal point. So 4.1 it the first program on TV channel 4, 4.2 it the second program on TV channel 4..... Well, I hope you get the idea.

Now for the hard part of your question. I believe that before the transition, even with your new digital TV, you were still enjoying the analog broadcasts from your stations. Your VCR picked them up and recorded them and your digital TV could tune them in and you watched as you had always done in the past. After the transition you noticed that your VCR could not record anymore and your digital TV had discovered the digital channels that replace the analog channels. To remedy this situation, your VCR will need the aid of a DTV converter box to tune channels, and you may have to reconfigure the way your TV and VCR are connected. The best resource that I can give your for the reconnecting is the website http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/converterbox_vcr.html.

You need to check your antenna strength, this is done through the digital converter box. Those channels may have lowered their broadcast signal and your antenna cannot pick them up anymore. You may need a outdoor antenna to pick up the channels. These can be purchased at any home improvement store. There is no such thing as a digital antenna. They are broadcasting digital signal instead of analog over UHF stations instead of VHF in most markets.

Tuner Problems


OK the tuner may be causing these problems, however first I would like you to go to your menu and set the RF pickup to antenna (This will allow analog channels) then come out of the memu and select a channel in the analog range channel 4, 7, or 9 try to tune in these channels. If this fails then you may have tuner problems the only way to be sure is to use a RF signal generator to send RF through the tuner and see if the video and audio being carried on that signal comes through. Sometimes the Internet connect gets messed up when the TV does not have the proper RF filters this may be your case. Try this use a Cable tv set top box and just set your TV to channel 3 for cable. This should Isolate the TV from the Internet cable modem and provide the signal needed by the TV.
