Can't get the antenna to pick up the local channels


Hi Leslie, since you didn't disclose the brand or model name and number to the antenna you are using, I'll do my best to help you with your dilemma.

1.) double check your physical (wire) input connections
2.) make sure you have selected the proper input from you t.v.'s menu screen

HDTV aerial (outdoor mast) antennas are your best investment to receive free air wave digital transmissions...as opposed to the smaller indoor antennas...and the clarity is phenomenal; it cannot be matched by cable or satellite signals that compresses and decompresses the audio and video signal.

Why? Because, digital t.v signals are line-of-sight signals; meaning they need an unobstructed path between the sending source (t.v. station transmitter) tower and the receiving (home) antenna.

Hills, trees, walls, buildings, and any other obstruction- bends, deflects and weakens the signal as it is...placing an HDTV antenna in an attic weakens the signal by at least a 1/2...

So, if you are using an Indoor omnidirectional antenna at the set; the signal will be even weaker...it won't be good enough to pick up the digital signal that requires an accurate line-of-sight reception (just like satellite dishes.)

As a side note: I had an outdoor HDTV mast installed professionally; including signal filter and signal booster- [they'll know the proper type antenna to use for your area (see http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/ for more details.)] And it was so worth it; whenever we have storms that knocks out cable power, we rely on the air-wave stations...and their sub-stations, lots of choices; and it's phenomenally clear...much clearer than cable or satellite signals can ever be.

As a matter-of-fact, we watch our local news and entertainment stations normally via our antenna rather than our cable service provider's system for that very reason of clarity and detail. Too bad we couldn't get the quality "pay for" stations that way, too - we'd drop our cable service and save a lot of money! :)

Autosetup on my DVB is not picking up stations. The TV is connected directly to the satellite dish and has all free sat stations. As far as I can see all the connections between the TV and DVB are as


I'm wondering where in the mix is your satellite receiver? The recorders currently on the market aren't able to decode digital satellite signals. They are capable of decoding cable but i'm unaware of any that work on satellite.

We have a mitsubishi 1080 hd model ws-48311. We no longer have cable do we need a converter box for this tv to pick up free tv. Thank you


No. All you need is an inexpensive antenna to pick up local TV stations. If the stations are close, all you should need is something like this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-Flat-Antenna-made-for-DTV/10542272

TV won't pick up channels 7-13


These are what once were VHF channels and are still mostly assigned to local stations.
You didn't mention the source for your received signals, if antenna, cable or satellite and it does make a difference as to the possible source of the problem.
If you are receiving via antenna, then the problem is within the set itself. If from one of the other two sources requiring a 'box,' then the problem is likely within the cable or satellite box that is between your incoming signal and the set.

What does D03-1 mean


The TV has several inputs, Video 1, Video 2, HDMI, etc. One of the inputs is Digital. TV stations switched from broadcasting analog signals years ago. You may remember having to buy a digital antenna, or possibly if using cable or satellite service never knew it happened. You can press the input button on your remote until you see D03-1 on the screen and then do a channel search. You may pick up some extra channels that are being locally broadcasted for free in your city.

Some flat screen tv's have two inputs, one for digital and one for analog reception. If your local public television station is analog, then you'll need a signal input on the analog input.
You might try temporarily moving the input from the digital to the analog then doing a new channel scan to see if this picks up the PBS station. You'll have to rescan again, when you move your antenna lead in back to digital.

I don't now how i recive tv chanels in hd


Your source has to be in HD like a local broadcast TV station currently broadcasting in HD which you get with a VHF/UHF antenna connected to the HDTV. Most primetime TV shows are in HD so using the antenna on the HDTV is all you need. Press MENU on your TV remote and make sure you have ANTENNA set instead of cable to get local TV stations.

You also could use your local cable TV provider. You would need digital cable service and a HD cable box with HDMI or component video cable hookup to the HDTV. HD channels are typically above 100. Call your cable TV provider for more details.

Read your user manual for the LG TV. Ask for help from family, friends, neighbors, local electronics shops.

No local channels


your locals may be broadcasted on a a different satellite (directv uses 7 different ones). when u travel, your dish on your rv might be capable of receiving the satellite that broadcasts normal programming. the dish on your home may look a little different and picks up more than one of the satellite signals. also these satellites are in different locations

The analog to digital only applies to television sets that are operating off of a rabbit ear or out door antenna that picks up local stations, or cable television without the cable box/receiver. If you have satellite television or cable with the receivers, your televisions will continue to work after the analog to digital transition.

Picking up tv station


Yes, lock out the frequency, or wait until digital broadcast comes int effect. DTV will be effective in 2009 where all television broadcasts must be done by cable or satellite. This means no antenna broadcasts.
