I need the model number off the back of the TV.

I also need to know where/how the Atari is plugged into the TV.

Additionally what remote are you using?

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

There is more to this than just entering the channel or being on antenna/cable mode, you need to have the atari connected and turned on, then run the auto scan (auto program) feature on the tv, under the setup/channels menu, and it should find channel*****
