Question about Hitachi Televison & Video
First make sure that the current Source or Input is set to TV. This is usually the only reason for the error message you see. To select the source, look for a Source or Input button on the original remote. If you have an universal remote with a button with the Source/Input label, you may need to try alternative codes to make the button work. (Power and channel controls will often match across multiple codes for the TV manufacturer.) Alternatively, check if there is a Source/Input button on the TV or a section of the menu system with the function. Once you set this source, try again.
Note: there was a period when manufacturers sold some TVs without tuners. They were labeled HD-ready sets. These can't do a channel scan and do not have an RF antenna jack on the set.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your Hitachi TV for more information on setting the source on your set.

You need a digital to analog convertor box to recieve the digital signal.
All UHF+VHF signals will be digital starting in June.

Do you have the tuner locked out for use of HDMI input only?
Most of the time when a selection is not able to be hi-lited it is
because a feature that is activated locks out other selections.
Hope this helps,

Try with the remote to direct enter the channel number (with the number buttons and or enter) If set makes it there go into menu for option to manually add it to the set memory.
Not likely a problem with your set.

Some setting or other appears to bave become mixed up. As with tvs malfunctioning with hardware faults please reset to factory
default and setup from scratch. This may remedy the issue.
Then , if the fault persists, try searching for the latest firmware for your set, this might do the trick
