Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.
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.
If your using basic cable then just use auto program and the set does the rest. You will only get the hd stations your cable provider provides using basic. If you use their hd cable box and pay for more hd stations then you will have more.
The instructions are in your TV manual, but because of the complexity of the TV and it's features, it may be difficult to find. I believe it is on P. 31 (at least of the manual I got online). You'll need to connect a TV antenna appropriate for your area. If broadcast sites are close (line of site) a simple bookshelf antenna will work. With the antenna connected, and the antenna input selected in setup, you allow the TV to scan for local channels in your area. I hope this helps you.
To get local over the air channels, you will need to connect an antenna as your signal sourceinstead of Cable on the back of the set. Then you will have to go into the TV menu for signal source and select the Antenna/air option. Then you will have to go to the auto program/scan menu and scan in the stations. This may take a few minutes. Now you can watch local stations for free.
I believe the FCC "must carry" rule require cable to carry local stations also.
First of all, digital/HD signals are broadcast at UHF frequencies. You need to know if you have an UHF antenna and, if you do, that it is pointed to the TV stations broadcasting HD.
Second, since most TV's have a setup mode that automatically searches for channels that are able to be received, go to that "Setup" menu on your TV and start the auto search. It will list both analog and digital stations. Note that the analog channel may be, for instance, Channel 39 but the digital channel will be Channel 39-1. Tune to the "dash 1" channel.
