Two things here, first, if the siganl is coming in but is weak you may need to adjust the antenna or purchase a amplifier. second, HD tv is in the UHF spectrum and you need to have that antenna for the HD, if you have both you should be able to get all the channels However if you have standard television, you may not be able to view HD broadcasts

What causes pixelation only on digital 9 TV and there subsidiaries


Pixellation is a weak and noisy signal coming in. Digital HD needs a good signal at the antenna socket on the back of the TV. You need to have good quality quad shield coax cable down from the antenna, and preferably crimped F-connectors at each plug and socket. You may even need a new digital antenna if you are making do with an older analogue one.

Your other stations will also improve.

We have a mitsubishi 1080 hd model ws-48311. We no longer have cable do we need a converter box for this tv to pick up free tv. Thank you


No. All you need is an inexpensive antenna to pick up local TV stations. If the stations are close, all you should need is something like this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-Flat-Antenna-made-for-DTV/10542272

Do I have to subscribe to directv to get any high definition stations?


DirecTV provides the most HD content. But no, the correct off-air antenna may pull in local HD stations, depending where you live. Also, cable and DishNetwork provide HD channels.

How do i get hd channels with no cable ? just antenna


If your TV has a digital tuner, you can get any HD channels if you use the correct antenna pointed at the transmitter and are close enough to the transmitters. (Antennas labeled as HD are not always appropriate for your location.) Your TV will downgrade the signal to 480i if the TV can't support a 720p or 1080i resolution.

First where do you live? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to determine the correct placement of your antenna for your area/stations. AntennaWeb uses a very conservative signal strength calculation despite assuming an external antenna. Tvfool will give the antenna color rating which is also provided on the antenna package. When properly installed (with no trees or hills blocking the signal), the matching antenna should receive the listed channel.

If you use a splitter to share the signal with several TVs, you may need an amplifier to bring the signal strength to that needed for the tuner to interpret the digital signal. (Note: amplifiers and splitters can fail and the amplifier may become a signal filter blocking the signal; test the antenna strength on a direct connection if there is a problem.)

If you do not have a digital tuner in the TV, you may have gotten an SD digital to analog converter. These are the more common (and available with the government coupon) converters. You will need to get an HD capable tuner to see the full HD signal.

Please add a comment with your TV model and antenna choice for additional support.

(antennaweb indicates that my external antenna should only get the stations 10 miles away. We actually receive the channels from 30 miles away. We use an amplifier splitter to feed the signal to several TVs. I set up two indoor antennas for a neighbor's TVs. One gets the signals from the transmitters 30 miles away and the other from the transmitter 10 miles away. Both get HD from the stations with HD broadcast (not all channels are in HD here). The difference is totally due to antenna placement.)

Tried to hook up a HD antenna but it won't work


HD is pretty critical and if a indoor antenna do not expect much or anything for that matter.

I don't now how i recive tv chanels in hd


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.

I have 42 inch toshiba, my husband cancelled our cable, is there a way to get the tv to work for just local channels??


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.

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do


Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

Antenna for my HDTV


Special HD or Digital antennas are not required to receive digital stations. A good VHF/UHF antenna should work. Try an amplified antenna for the best reception. Most antennas have a coax type connector which should connect to the ant. in jack on the back of your DirectTV box or to your tv depending how the box is connected to your tv.
