How do I get back my local channels on my Vizio by rabbit ears


Make sure that you have the TV tuner set up to receive ATSC (digital) signals via "Off Air" or "Antenna". Having it set to the "Cable Ready" mode will only get you Ch 2 - 13. These settings are usually available in set up and may even allow the TV to scan for available channels, etc.

Will it pick up digital air signal


It depends on how old the TV is. If manufactured after 2010 it probably will receive digital signals. You can test now by attaching a pair of rabbit ears to the antenna input and running set up to select over air channels.

2 tv's. recently had uverse removed. neighbor has rabbit ears-gets local channels. I get nothing. Does something with uverse change my tv's?


Your tv my have a setting for type of input. Cable of Air channels. You would need to switch that to AIr. Also, the air channels have gone to a digital signal and I believe they take "digital rabbit ears" I think the old style may not pull in the digital signal, but I'm not entirely certain about that one. Something like this http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Ultra-Thin-Performance-Indoor-Antenna/dp/B00DIFIO8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409885138&sr=8-1&keywords=digital+antenna+for+hdtv+indoor

How to make bunny ears work on my 1996 panasonic tv


Rabbit ears will only get channels that are very close or strong--a lot of channels are no longer broadcast in analog over the air---ask your neighbors what they use and consider going to cable or sat.

Want to set this up without cable. Someone told me to go to "air" mode and add rabbit ears and this will work. I cannot find an air mode on this tv. How do you set this one up with rabbit...


You will once again, purchase a converter box to receive an over the air channel. I don't think you will have to really worry about using an over the air mode on the TV. It may be in the menu, but will work otherwise after being placed on channel 3 to receive through the converter box. The rabbit ears will be connected to the converter box itself.

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...


You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

I do beleive most tv companies stopped broadcasting over the air. the only way to receive more channels is to take the cable wire that comes out of the wall and then into the tv then auto pragram one more time and see if this helps. One question why would you remove the cable box? if you cancelled cable tv all together you will not get any channels. And like i said before all tv channels are removing there air broadcasting. so rabbit ears are going to be in the past soon. i hope this clarifies the situation.

No cable hookup


harvque- you can use rabbit ears to get the local free channels,but you will probably need to extend the wires and try to mount them outside.The main reason is because the newer tv's with digital tuners don't pick up as well as old school tuners,and the tv signals are not as strong cause they are usually boosted as the are wired in.Try this and let me know,I do have a few tricks for free air tv. cooltekFeb.18/08
