SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

SOURCE: Auto Scan doesn't pick up any channels.

In the main settings, there should be an option for AIR or CATV, air is for non-cable and CATV is for cable tv. This has to be on the correct setting before you autoscan

SOURCE: HDTV unable to get HD Channels w/ Antenna

The problem could be your antenna. Many people will buy small indoor tv antennas and wonder why they're not getting the signal that they want or the channels that they expect. Its not your fault. Digital signal is in two formats: UHF AND VHF. Some antennas only receive UHF. But many of the low band channels are VHF, so 1) you need an antenna that will receive those signals and 2) you need to know how and where to install that antenna and 3) you need to know if you need a signal amplifier depending on your coaxial cable length and number of connections. I recommend visiting dennys antenna service (no I don't work there and I have never purchased anything from that website. He just has an excellent informational article with a great deal of "how to" on his pages.). http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/2029710.html This should be of great help to you. Happy viewing =)

HDMI input works ok. Hooked up external antenna. Did channel scan. It will only scan for analog channels. Has analog raster on screen. It has no information on menu page for digital channel scan.


do you have the air option in the scan menu see
http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/sanyo/dp42841.html
page 9 important fact cable digital gets wiped by air digital channels

You may be able to get around this via a digital hd tv decoder box and then have it on a hdmi input on the TV as a backup to the cable if you can't have both cable digital channels stored and aerial digital channels stored

The model # is: L42FHD37. I need to know how to set up an amplified indoor HDTV antenna. RCA multi directional serial # ANT1450BFW.


Attach the antenna to the antenna/TV input on the back of the TV. If you have a flat twin lead wire on your antenna, you'll need a co-ax converter. (Best buy, etc.) Power on the TV (and the amplified antenna) and use the Input button on the remote to select the TV input. Next use the menu button to select channels and then engage the auto-search option to memorize all of the available channels in your area.

Just bought a !9" digital flat screen Apex. Hooked it to an indoor HDTV antenna. All I can get is "NO SIGNAL". What do I try next?? Bob E, Technical Dunce over 80.


Bob, If you have an hd ready tv, and hooked up the Ant. then the next thing you should do is go to your menu and select the tv feature and then scan for channels. This should program the channels for you. Most TV setups are like this. You should have a option for cable or antenna/tv input. select Antenna. You r should be good to go once the channel scan is done.

Hope that helps

How to get rca indoor antenna to pick up free digital channels on my Samsung television


Indoor antennas are not very good if you live far away from the TV transmitter. Antenna aim has to be more precise than before with analog TV's. If you can put up an outside antenna you'll probably get them all.

I just purchased an indoor antenna for to view local stations. Can i use an indoor antenna for my olevia 232-t11 lcd-hdtv? If I can, what steps do I need to follow?


Yes you can use an indoor antenna. Just make sure it is an HD antenna to get the digital channels clearly. You will have to do a scan to pick up local channels. In the TV menu, it will ask you if you want to scan for "cable" channels or "antenna" channels. You want to choose antenna.

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

You gotta have a way to get signal to the tv . If you don't want a outside antenna use rabbit ears .After you hook them up hide them behind the tv then do a channel scan. If you don't pick up all the stations set them on top and scan again or get satillite or cable hd boxes.
