Hello, On this TV changing it to Antenna requires a remote- but that's not the issue, the issue is the TV does not have an HDTV "Tuner"- it's an older analog set so you can't connect an antenna directly to it. On this set and older analog TV's you need a DTV converter box plugged into the TV, and then the antenna plugs in there. You then simply connect the DTV converter box to the coaxial input on the set, and change it to channel 3, then use the DTV box software to scan for available channels through the Antenna. The box you need can be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Wal Mart or at the link below:
