I am trying to hook up a TV Freeway bar to my element TV. How can I do it??

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The TV Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

We bought a TV Free Way bar and are trying to hook it up to our Element TV. All that comes up on TV is Please Run Channel Auto Scan

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the TV Technician should know?

It won't do anything

That may be a serial number, but it is not a valid model.
