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. What you'll need to do is first set the tv input mode to TV/Antenna (not hdmi, aux, etc)Then go into the tv setup menu, then setup, quick setup, then look for the tuner mode which you'll set to air/antenna (not cable). Then run the auto scan, and it will program in any channels it picks up.
