I have an older tv and I just plugged it in and put the cable into the tv. Some of the channels work (the "bunny ear" channels) but nothing else works. I tried programming the TV but it won't pick up my other channels, even when I type in another number on the remote. The cable outlet works as I have my other tv plugged in now to make sure the outlet works. Any suggestions?

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.
use your tv remote and click menu, then click setting, or "TV" if tv is an option. choose "channels" or something of that nature, then run a channel scan. if you're using bunny ears, set the option under channel search to "air". hope it works out for ya! :)
I had the same problem. I also use rabbit ear antenna , no cable or satellite. I was watching ch. 33.1 and the tv turned off by itself. The remote wouldn't work. The power on/off buttons on the side of the tv wouldn't work. I had to un-plug the power cord to turn the tv off. The tv forze on ch. 33.1 when I turned it back on.
I called Vizio, they told me they received hundreds of complaints from people in Texas complain g about these problems.
I was told to un-plug the antenna cable and re-plug it. I did this plus I re-scanned all channels. The problem has been solved, the channel (33.1) no longer freezes and the tv doesn't turn off by itself.
If you have cable already, you do not need to use a converter for your picture. You would still just hook your coax cable to the tv right from the cable inlet. The converter is for over the air signals only, so you would place it between your bunny ears and the tv to convert your signal for your tv.
