Ok so i know what the problem is. It just happened to me. Under settings on your TV there will be an option that is to switch your tv to cable. Otherwise known as CTV just play around with the menus certain tvs have a built in setting which allows the first 13 channels. I dont know why it doesnt make sense. But anways switch that setting to CTV or cable tv and you should be recieving all channels

Why will my new tv not pick up any channels when using the auto channel search


It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)

The RC389H is only deigned to receive standard TV signals, not digital. If you are routing through a straight cable line you usually can't access anything above 100 if you don't have a digital tuner. Try using a cable/satellite box if you haven't already, this bypasses the requirement for a digital tuner because the cable/satellite box has one of it's own.

This tv has analog tuner and you need digital tuner in tv to get digital signal in UK, alternate way is to hook cable box with this tv that will convert digital signal into AV output that will connect to AV input of tv to get cable channels.

You need to have a newer digital antena hooked up to it also if your tv is flat panel and its less than say 2 years old the digital tuner should be built in. I dont mean to sound dumb but if you are using a digital coverter box and thats what the antenna is hooked up to make sure your in the menu of the converter box. You can determine this by what channel the TV is on. If you hooked the Box to the coaxle then your TV should be on 3 or 4 if you used Composite(RCA) cables then it should be on aux. But once again I will say the antanna makes all the difference with digital. Old ones do not work. Please respond with more info if this doesnt help.

Hi,
Mitsubishi VS-60805 is 1999 model tv and unable to receive digital cable channels because it is equipped with analog tuner that can not receive cable channels because it is almost 11 years old.
You need to hook Cable Box in AV input of tv, plug digital cable in cable box and get digital cable channels in tv. Cable box has its own remote control and inbuilt digital tuner to receive all digital cable channels and widely available in Store, Radio Shake, amazon.com etc.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.

If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).
