Once the antenna is mounted and connected to the TV then you can go into setup menu and do a channel search. You will be prompted to set it up as CABLE or AIR/ANTENNA. Select ANTENNA and it will program all available channels for you.

Why will my new tv not pick up any channels when using the auto channel search


It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)

How do i get tv channels on my android tv box


In many cases these devices are not designed to pick up local tv stations. Instead they are designed to allow streaming of your movies and music from your computers or other network attached devices.
To get local stations you will need to ensure your tv is digital compatible (any tv made in the last few years will be) and then use the channel scan feature of your tv.
You may also need an additional external digital antenna to receive digital channels
Your android device can be used with an internet connection to watch youtube, amazon, (netflix on some devices) crackle, etc. These are internet services which usually can't be broadcast to a TV. So these boxes act in a similar way as the cable converter boxes of the 80-90's did.

Hope this helps you, feel free to ask further if needed.

did you switch the TV's incoming signal to digital antenna? For the cable box it was probably set to cable antenna or analog inputs, not all TV's have automatic switching for antenna feeds. My Mitsubishi has 1 digital and 1 analog antenna input and the cable box will only work through the antenna input if it's the analog antenna input and it's tuned to channel 3 or 4, -(or through a seprate HDMI, PROSCAN, SVCR,or a yellow RCA plug input)- and when the analog antenna input is selected the TV will tune all analog cable channels that the cable service offers if a box is not used. likewise the TV will not tune any channels at all if it's set to digital antenna inputs. It will tune all local channels only when set to digital antenna inputs.

No signal onthe screen


If you are connected to a high definition cable box or satellite tv box you would not need to turn to channel 3 on your television. The television would need to be in the right input either component or hdmi. If someone connected the tv to the cable box or satellite tv box with a coax cable like an antenna cable then the tv channels will be available on channel 3 as well but they will not display in high definition. You change channels with the cable box/satellite tv box remote control. If the above is not correct and you are only connected to an antenna cable and not to a cable box or satellite tv box you will need to complete a channel search from the tv menu. It sounds like you are using a cable box/satellite tv box and that the tv is on the wrong input. If the cable box/satellite tv box is not working (i.e. just a black screen) on your television than that is a different matter entirely.

first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.
