The only people effected by the changeover are those that use external antennas for TV reception. I am assuming that you use cable or satelite correct?

    Based upon what I read in the manual, when the changeover takes place, the auto tuner will detect the lack of the analog signals but will detect the digital ones. You should not have any problems. This set is designed to pick up the digital broadcasts.

I have a 20 inch panel sharp Aquos tv every time I try to auto program it, it say eds channels are not programmable in using a clear antenna.model number is LC20B6U-SM


This LCD was manufactured before HD signals were transmitted so It has an analog tuner that is why it isn't programming any channels. Over the air signals became digital 2009 so every TV was required to have a digital tuner to decode the new channels. If you still would like to used this LCD, you will require a digital adapter.

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?


You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.

Can't program digital channels only has analog option


If your TV does not have a digital tuner, you'll need a digital converter box.
After the digital switch in June, did you have channels then? If so just do a rescan.

No audio on some hd channes


Try pressing the MTS button on your remote while on the channel that does not have audio and select stereo. Most likely this will be set to SAP (secondary audio programming) and there is no SAP programming on that show. This is not something that could be avoided. It was during the channel scan, it locked in the SAP audio broadcasts for some reason.

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do


Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

How to hook my directv to digital input to lcd tv j32l637


I don't know what flat screen tv you have,but you must be aware of the coaxial input behind the TV.It could be analog input,digital input and OUTPUT!!
Anyway,if you connect your basic directv box to your digital input,it will not serve you any purpose to get HD channels and you don't have the HD directv box.The TV will not display digital channel for you because if you use coaxial input to TV,you should be under either channel 3 or 4 and be sure either channel had been saved under memory.In order to change channels,you will need to change it from your directv box.
JUST LIKE a VCR connect to TV.TV will be under channel 3 or 4,and you will change your channels from the VCR.Don't forget to scan all the channels from the VCR!
