Hi , I`m Jack , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
Expert:  Jack replied 5 months ago.
Just to make sure I understand you correctly ;You had an antenna connected to the tv with a coaxial cable in the TV's antenna/cable terminal and now you wish to connect a satellite box/receiver , is that correct ?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Yes. That's correct.
Expert:  Jack replied 5 months ago.
O.k then and this tv , is it a second tv on that satellite receiver or it is connected alone and right next to that satellite box ?
Expert:  Jack replied 5 months ago.
This changes the channel numbers and mode .If it is directly connected to it the it will be channel 3 or 4 but if it is a second tv working on the satellite receivers dual tuner then it will be a channel between 60 and 75 in which case I believe you are looking for the channel search/scan menu , is that also correct ?
Expert:  Jack replied 5 months ago.
Can you give me the TV's model number ?
Expert:  Jack replied 5 months ago.
I can`t give you the default password ***** help you without that model number
