SOURCE: PROBLEM WITH GETTING LOCAL hd CHANNELS

You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

SOURCE: cant attain digital channel scan on hitachi rear projection tv

Do you have the tuner locked out for use of HDMI input only?
Most of the time when a selection is not able to be hi-lited it is
because a feature that is activated locks out other selections.
Hope this helps,

Does this TV have ATSC digital capability or will I need a digital tuner to use a digital antenna?


If the TV is an analog only you will need to get a digital converter box to be able to use a digital antenna. You can find this online by doing a Google search or you can try Ebay they have a bunch of them 662results for tv digital converter box

My Sony KDL-52xbr4 was working fine until I did a re-scan of the digital channels. After the re-scan the TV finds no digital channels. All other TVs hooked to the same antenna work fine. The sony scans up...


Hi check to make sure the antenna is connected correctly. try tunning the channels manually and if they come up you can save them one at a time. Also try moving the antenna to a different location. make sure the TV is set to scan on the same input that you are connecting the antenna. If all that fails ou might have a defective tuner board.

You can get parts for this tv at www.interliquidparts.com

Cable in my area has switched to digital cable. I own a Hitachi HDTV about four years old. When I scan my channels it will only scan analog channels...the digital channels are an option but I don't...


Unfortunately, you need a set-top box. The Hitachi 65F59 has an ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog) tuner. It doesn't have a clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable) tuner.

There are a few DVR set-top boxes with QAM tuners that you can buy separately. (You will need to make sure a given model is compatible with your service. FIOS uses a different option on the Cable Card than other providers.) Alternatively, you can get a cable box from your company.

Retrevo has the manual for this Hitachi TV here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-65F59-TVs-manual/id/371ci977/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.

If you want OTA HD, you will need to determine the correct antenna for your area and the direction to the transmitters. (External antennas pick up more stations. In some areas amplification may be needed to get a good signal.) See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for searches on the appropriate antenna to get a signal and where to point the antenna. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the received channel list. You would need to set the TV signal input to Air and rescan for channels if you choose to go with the OTA signal.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I am still trying to scan the air channels, I am hooked up to an antenna and can only get the Spanish channels. How do I get all the digital channels?


Hi Tat2,

First: If you do not have a cable hookup, if you are using an antennae, you should get a converter box.

It handles the scanning, the decoding of sub-channels (I have four OPB channels), signal strength filtering. It's remote, controls both the box and your TV.

It hooks up between your TV and antenna. Set your TV to channel 4, click the on button. The first time menu comes up, scans the channels and lets you know when its done. You'll find channels you never knew existed.

They're easy.

Best regards
Mike

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna...


I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

Hitatchi 42HDF52 only receives channel 5 and 6 on analog RF input


If you have tried autoprogramming and have found nothing it may be a bad tuner. Is your VCR is hooked up via coax or into a video input? If it is hooked up via video and is working but the coax connection direct isnt it will be a bad TV tuner. Easiest cheapest fix is to use you VCR to change channels or get a Digital Cable Terminal from you cable provider and hook it into video or compnent.

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.
