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 cannot get reception on the flexible antenna which came with the Casio JY-70B Portable Color TV. I need the users manual


Small antennas are usually inadequate for digital reception except in very high signal strength areas. You must also perform a channel scan befor attempting to tune a channel.

RCA HD52W59 HDTV Plug in digital antenna into air antenna input then run channel scan =0 channels What should I do next??? Mike


Make sure you are connecting the digital antenna to the digital antenna input on the back of the set, then rescan. Most over the air Tv signals migrated to digital transmission and therefore the analog input is mostly for older analog devices. If you still do not get any channels, then you need to make sure the antenna you are using is rated for reception in your area. You can check for proper antenna size and channels available here,http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx

Need to know how to go cable free. Have TERK digital antenna


Shouldn't do, just connect the antennas into the Belling-Lee TV antenna socket at rear of set, tune channels. If you antenna won't fit, you may need an "F" connector to "Belling-Lee" converter plug. You will need an "Ordinary" Yagi VHF/UHF antenna installed though. Is that what that digital one is?

Recently installed two Philco TB100HH9 Converter boxes. Both worked well at first then both lost a major local TV station within days and cannot reprogram it into the box. Have two other TV's without a...


I just had a similar problem with this box - For the first month or two, I got the local NBC affiliate (KING-5 in Seattle) just fine on 5.1, then, after fiddling with my antenna setup, I lost it completely - NOTHING I could do would get it back. I tried a bunch of stuff - Multiple types of antenna, adding an antenna amp box, a handful of "homebrew" antennas - Nada. Yet all my other channels came in fine (although a couple were right on the edge - This box seems to need a "17" or higher on the signal strength - Some of my channels were reading in the 15-18 range, and suffering the "blockies" and sound dropout)

After hitting TVfool.com, found out that the KING digital signal is actually broadcasting on channel 48. Punched in 48.1, and there it was, clear as a bell, using nothing but a "wick" antenna (Basically, strip 4-1/4 inches of the outer braid off one end of a piece of co-ax cable, leaving the center wire alone, then plug the other end into the box) getting me a 23 signal strength. But a second or two later, the box is displaying "5.1" - Weirdness...

Reconnected a near top-of-the-line Winegard Yagi/Log-periodic antenna - VERY directional, and has some gain all by itself - and the signal jumped above 50.

Still couldn't "channel-up/channel-down" or punch in "5.1" to tune it, though - Channel 5.x was a "dead zone" as far as the box was concerned.

Re-did the "autoscan", and now, it's back to normal - I can channel-up/channel-down to it at 5.1, or I can punch it in as 5.1, or I can punch it in as 48.1, and it's all good.

So, try re-doing the auto-scan. Worked for me...

Tuning is very poor on some channels of digital tv. model 37av505db


If the por channels are clustered together, this is an indication of a bad ground connection somewhere between the antenna and the set. Check all of the cables and connectors for breaks or loose connections. If possible, try an other set with the same cable connection. If the second set is OK, then there is a connection problem within the tuner.
