Question about Samsung LE32R41BD 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have tried many times programming the cable tv channels for my Samsung LCD tv. I followed closely all the instructions from the manual but the reception and sound is hazy. I used the same antenna for my old TV and I'm sure its working well because I tested the antenna on another
TV and it gives clear signals. Why can't the new Samsung LCD get the signals well? Something wrong with the TV? HELP! I can't even get a clear reception from our local TV channels!
SOURCE: programming channels
In order to program the channels for this TV, you'll want to press the "Menu" button on the TV itself. Once in the main menu, scroll down until you see an option called "Setup." From here, press the right arrow key to enter the submenu. Before going any further, you'll want to make sure that the tuning band is correctly set to "Air" or "Cable," which will depend on how you have your TV connected.
Once the proper input has been selected, you can then scroll down to "Auto Ch Search." If you press the right arrow key on this option, your TV will automatically search for all available channels.
If you'd like step-by-step instructions (with pictures of what you should see at any given step), I'd suggest checking out the link I've provided below to Insignia's online owner’s manual for this model:
Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: can't get all digital channels
There are several possibilities assuming you have an outdoor antenna with the amplification. You are too far from the transmitter or the station is still on a low power digital transmitter until the analog broadcasts end. Additionally, there may be buildings, hills or trees in the way. The first one is called the digital cliff - you either have enough signal for your tuner or you don't. Some stations may need to add transmitters to cover the secondary areas that could still receive the analog signal. The second possibility will either resolve on Feb 18 or June 12 or anywhere in between. (It will depend on your station and the Digital TV transistion delay bill. Some stations are changing frequencies with the transistion and can't go to full power until another analog station moves its frequency.) The last one can't be resolved.
If you have an indoor antenna, you can try moving it around to get better results. My household has an amplified outdoor antenna with a rotator to get the antenna to line up with the signal. We have two analog stations that give problems when we look for their digital signals. We hope the issue will resolve with the changeover since we have seen the signals on both stations improve when they wanted to broadcast football games.

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.
• You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before
programming channels (-left-hand column).
• If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the
automatic channel programming process erases channels
that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.
• If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the
automatic channel programming process adds newly found
channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and
does NOT erase channels that were previously
programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna
source channel from the memory, you must manually delete
• To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel
memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the
• Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is
configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when
the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;
however, once channel programming is finished, you should
not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.
