Ok Jack yes I did.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

O.k then and is it the first time you connect this tv to an antenna or this was working and stopped ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

Let me check this to make sure but I think your tv will need a converter in order to get signal from the air/antenna

Just send me the Information on what to do so I can print it out got to go to work in an hour. Just want to see if I have to keep using pay TV Company's .Because the TV work fine with Pay TV.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

Your tv does not have a digital tuner and you will need a converter box in between the tv and antenna , here is an example , click this link ; https://www.amazon.com/3500STBII-Multi-Function-Converter-Recording-Playback/dp/B00GOILYB6

This box comes with its own remote and even records

Your tv has HDMI input and this box has HDMI out so you could get HD channels to your tv

Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

There are other models on that webpage as well that could do and you can also find this locally at places like Walmart , best buy , radio shack etc. ,just ask for digital tv converter box and just make sure it has a HDMI out if you want HD picture and don't forget a HDMI cable if you don't have one already
