Hi and welcome to JustAnswer; a Q & A site and I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete make and model number of the "...av receiver..."

And is the TV directly connected to an antenna? ...or is there a satellite receiver?
