My TCL LED TV (model L50B2800F) is connected to my Samsung

Customer Question

My TCL LED TV (model L50B2800F) is connected to my Samsung 5.1 CH Blu-Ray home entertainment system through the HDMI1 port. How do I tune the TV into the home system so that I can watch TV through the system. I can only watch Blu Ray discs at the moment if the TV source is changed to HDMI. Otherwise I can only watch TV through the digital source function. Thank you

Appreciate the additional information.Is the TV directly connected to an antenna? ....or is there an external receiver such as an iQ box? If the latter, please describe how the receiver / box is connected to the TV using what kind of cable(s).If the TV has "...AUDIO/VIDEO sockets (output)...", then please consider/try using RCA-to-RCA cable and connect the TV's AUDIO OUTput jacks to the Samsung's AUX IN red & white RCA jacks.
