You didn't provide your TV model. However, you should be able to switch from cable to antenna with the Menu. Make sure the Input source is the TV, press Input repeatedly to get that setting.

1) Menu > Setup Menu > Auto Channel Search. Use the up/down arrows to select the appropriate line. Use the right or left arrow to change the source, then press the down arrow to highlight Start Search. Then press the right arrow or OK.

2) Press Menu and use the Ch+/Ch- buttons to cycle through a list in the menu, highlight Setup and press OK to select. Then use the Vol+/Vol- buttons to choose TV/CATV. Again press OK. Go down to Auto Search and press Vol+.

If there is a Menu button on the TV, you can do this without a remote.

I hope this helps.

Set up installing antenna, tried Ant A & Ant B no receptiom what do I do?


The first question you have to answer is whether your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts. TV stations no longer broadcast the "old analog" signals, but now transmit only in digital format. If your TV is not capable of receiving digital broadcasts, you will need to buy a special box which allows you to receive digital broadcasts. Then you would hook it up in the order: antenna -> digital box -> TV.

If your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts, I've found that it is very important that your antenna have a pretty much unobstructed view of the direction from which the signal is coming. For instance, if your local signals are broadcast from the southerly direction, you should try to mount your antenna to a window which is facing south.

One last point before I forget, you must make sure that you select the proper input on your tv. For instance, I have cable, and a dvd player hooked up to my tv. Before I use the dvd, I have to go into the TV menu and select my dvd. When I want to return back to cable, I have to go back into the TV menu and select the cable input.

I just bought an RCA flatscreen and brought it home and hooked it up. I don't have a cable box for this tv, but I do have a cable cord that I plugged in. Anyway, I don't get most channels. I get...


Some cable companies use the 'tier' pricing with their "Packages".
Here in Tallahassee it goes something like this..............................

1) Basement 'Basic" pkg. No converter.>>>>>>>>>>Lineup>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> CH 1-9
2) Basic w/converter.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>It varies, but there are a lot more than 9!
3) Basic w/Digital converter>>>>>>>>>>>>>> more channels,and PPV
4) Premium pkg>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>HBO,Sports etc.

Go to the menu on the TV, run auto channel search, and check the type of signal assigned, i.e. Antenna or cable.
Good Luck!

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

Trouble with Channel setup


It is important for the TV to know what type of
signal-Cable TV (CATV) or a normal antenna
you are using. Choose your signal (Antenna or
Cable):
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight Setup.
Press OK
to enter the Setup submenu.
TV/CATV is highlighted. Press VOL+ or
VOL-
to select TV or CATV.
Choose CATV if you have Cable TV
service. (See page 4 for connection
details.) If you do not have Cable TV
service and you connected an antenna
to the TV, choose TV. (See page 5 for
connection details.)
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.

And here is the manual if you need .

I cannot get vcr to record channels timer goes on and on playback blue screen


I assume it plays back a pre-recorded film with no problem? Check your antenna is connected to the input of the VCR or your cable box. If you have a cable box connected via a scart connector, then select AV channel on the VCR & select the programme from the cable box. If you are using the antenna the go into the set up menu & retune the VCR into your incoming channels & ensure the flylead from the output of the VCR (at the rear of the video next to where the antenna cable is positioned) is connected to the input antenna socket of the TV.
